Opulent greenery and unspoilt scenery awaits
Puntarenas isn’t called the rich coast for no reason, its opulent, large green spaces and unspoilt scenery makes it one of the prettiest locations in South America. Grand views are often what draw people to the coastal town as well as inexpensive eateries and busy market places. Surfing also plays a huge part in the popularity of the town and crystal clear waves are often spotted off the shore with brave riders soaring on their peaks onto the shores of the beaches.
Coffee, coffee and more coffee
A wander around Puntarenas will open your eyes to the rich coffee-making history the location has. Taste nature’s gold as you explore one of the coffee plantations and see the production of some of the world’s best beans. Head to a nearby coffee shop and taste the wonders of the local work for a real experience of Costa Rica and it’s rich coffee making royalties.
A bird’s-eye view
There is no better way to see the rainforests of Puntarenas than from up in the air above the trees. Take a canopy tour through the dense, green ferns, trees and lianas before exploring some of the local wildlife that calls the magical location their home. Tours can be arranged from the town and offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the worlds endangered animals in their own habitats.
Puntarenas is famous for its deep orange and pink sunsets as they glow on the gentle currents of the warm sea. Sit on the beach or head onto the hills to experience the true beauty of these South American sights and watch as the sun dips behind the glowing, calm sea.
