Vizcaya Beach, Limón, Costa Rica

Playa Vizcaya

More than a beach is a long coast

Between Limón and the popular southern Caribbean beaches around Puerto Viejo there are several kilometers of beach, a bit monotonous, very wide and with very distant shadows.

This beach, coast or area is known as Vizcaya beach. You can see beautiful skies and enjoy the sounds of the sea and the colors of the Caribbean in solitude.

Although it is not a visited place because it really is a place of passage, beautiful green rivers converge its sea like the Bananito River.
