REGGAE IN PUERTO VIEJO

PREVIOUS / NEXT

COSTA RICA by KATE on 25 november 2015

REGGAE IN PUERTO VIEJO As most blogs and reviews will let you believe that Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica is a vibrant Reggae town on the Caribbean side, we are sorry to review that this is not exactly true.
I have been to Jamaica many years ago, and despite the many armed guards patrolling the beaches and the touristic town of Montigo Bay, the reggae music was everywhere, loud and impossible to miss day or night.

Here in Puerto Viejo, there are many bars in the city center that maybe play loud reggae music at night but we are not in the city center per say and when we go town during daytime it is mostly quiet in terms of music.
I understand many of our posts lately depict an image of Puerto Viejo that is not as idealistic as many other reviewers’ but it is the bare truth.
Simply what we see in here.

For us, as a family, coming from Spain to Costa Rica was an important decision even for 3 months and as first timers in the country all we had to rely upon were the different reviews and blogs we could easily find on the internet.
We are sorry to disappoint but we felt kind of disappointed.
The place didn’t hold to the reviews we read and we make it a traveler’s duty to rectify the truth.

Generally speaking, the Costa Ricans are quiet people, they talk calmly sometimes even whisper, I must say we are so used to Spain which is a loud country.
But here there is not as much noise as in Spain, which is certainly good but it’s true we had expected boomers with reggae tunes everywhere and didn’t find that in Puerto Viejo.
