Negra beach in Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limón, CR

Playa Negra Puerto Viejo

Black Beaches are underrated sometimes, get a lovely sunset here

It is the Caribbean, we know it is not appreciated all the sunset here, but the part that can be enjoyed in this area is beautiful. You have calm waters, fun waves in sunny conditions, and the sand is black, quite black, which looks distinctly beautiful.

It is a long beach, and the old ship docked on its shore gives it a nostalgic and picturesque air. This is one of the many beautiful beaches in Puerto Viejo to enjoy.
