Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica, nombrado como uno de los principales destinos por Frommer’s Para el 2011

Por Eliot Greenspan

Puerto Viejo es el punto más caliente en la costa caribeña de Costa Rica. Y no estoy hablando sólo de la frecuencia de calor sofocante. Los surfistas, mochileros, y Costa Rica, conocedores del tesoro Puerto Viejo y sus playas de los alrededores, los ríos y los bosques. Sin embargo, de riesgo muy pocos visitantes a distancia del país de la costa sur del Caribe, que es una vergüenza. Un pequeño pueblo al frente de un pequeño puerto protegido, Puerto Viejo ofrece hasta excelentes restaurantes, bares de rock, y la riqueza de oportunidades de turismo y aventura.

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica Named One Of Frommer’s Top Destinations For 2011

Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica Named One Of Frommer’s Top Destinations For 2011

By Eliot Greenspan

Puerto Viejo is the hottest spot on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. And I’m not just talking about the often stifling heat. Surfers, backpackers, and Costa Rican cognoscenti treasure Puerto Viejo and its surrounding beaches, rivers, and rainforests. Still, very few visitors venture to the country’s remote southern Caribbean coast, which is a shame. A tiny town fronting a small protected harbor, Puerto Viejo offers up excellent restaurants, rocking bars, and wealth of tour and adventure opportunities.

Blog This Site!

Filed Under blog

Want to become the blogger for this site?
We’re looking for one!

We recently changed the focus of this site, along with the domain name. We used to be Tropical Reservations, a small tour and accommodations business in downtown Puerto Viejo. After 5-1/2 years of living on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, we decided to come back home. So we closed the shop and moved back to the US.

But this site continues to gain traffic. Why? Because of the superior, relevant content about the Puerto Viejo area, the beaches, transportation, and the awesome dynamic weather page, which is the best source of weather information on the Caribbean coast.

So, we slapped up a couple of Google AdSense ads for a little extra income, changed the domain name and focus of the site from reservations and tours to an information portal about the Puerto Viejo area.

So here’s the deal. If you’d like to become the blogger for this site, you can if you meet the requirements. You’ll get the benefits of an awesome site about the Puerto Viejo area already filled with great content, existing internet traffic, and you can use the blog to promote yourself, your products or your services. If you do tours in the Puerto Viejo Area, you can promote them here as well.

Prerequites:

  1. You must live in the Puerto Viejo area full time and have been living there for at least a year. We want someone who loves the area and knows what they’re talking about regarding what’s happening there.
  2. You must be willing to work on a regular basis to keep the pages of the site up to date, especially regarding road conditions, weather alerts, and news and events.
  3. Your blog posts must be related to the Puerto Viejo area. The site must retain it’s laser focus and not go off on irrelevant subject matter. You can promote yourself, your products and your services if they are unique to the area.
  4. You must submit samples of your writing for review.
  5. The content that you submit to the site must remain there, even if you walk away from the deal.

That’s it. We keep it pretty simple. There’s no contract, no long term commitments. If you provide fresh, relevant material on a regular basis you’ll be allowed to use the site as an advertising vehicle for your own needs as long as it’s related to Puerto Viejo and the surrounding area.

If you think you qualify just use the Contact Form to send us your email, tell us about yourself, and how we can see some of your writing.

Pura Vida!

Playa Negra Bridge Repair

Playa Negra Bridge Repair

The Playa Negra Bridge, at the entrance to Puerto Viejo, is being repaired. This is the new bridge which was put in place to replace the one which washed out during last November’s flooding. Heavy rains on Monday night and rough seas at Playa Negra caused the soil to erode at the north end of the bridge. Early Tuesday morning some light traffic was allowed to pass, and the bridge was then closed in the late afternoon so that repairs could begin. Many 4wd vehicles, motorcyclists, and pedestrians were bypassing the bridge along the shore.
