Covered in lush jungle, surrounded by breathtaking beaches, Puerto Viejo is where the Tribe will embrace our most down-to-earth selves. This town is for those who need a reset: rediscover passions for scuba diving and surfing, reenergize biking the coastal roads, and reconnect with nature as monkeys and sloths perch in the trees. It's a pura vida way of life, a chance to come together with the community and savor life's simple pleasures.
Experience Puerto Viejo with the Tribe
Take on Puerto Viejo with the Tribe and discover a new side to the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Open your mind to the cocreated community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.
Be immersed in a melting pot of cultures
The mix of Latinx, Afro-Caribbean, and BriBri indigenous cultures influences the cuisine and laidback attitudes on the Caribbean coast. We'll stay productive for sure, but be far removed from a go-go-go way of life.
Discover first-class diving & surf spots
Both just a 20-minute drive away, Punta Uva and Parque Nacional Cahuita are perfect for discovering the marine life. We'll also grab our boards and head to Salsa Brava to find the biggest breaks in Costa Rica.
Embrace the cuteness while meeting Costa Rica's famed fauna
On top of warming our hearts, we'll learn more about the wildlife locals as they're rehabilitated at the Jaguar Rescue Center. Predatory animal tourism can step aside, here they nurse sloths, monkeys, birds, wild cats, and reptiles back to health while housed in terrariums that mimic their natural habitats. It's a chance to get closer to some majestic animals than we ever have before.
Bop over to Bocas del Toro for the weekend
Skip from one beach town to the next, Bocas del Toro is easy to access by bus and boat to check Panama off our lists. Compare the dreamy beaches and laidback lifestyles, there's no better way to relax.
Brave the rapids of the Pacuare River
We'll have white knuckles as we white water raft down the Pacuare River. Paddling 32 kilometers, through 2 steep canyons, alongside 2 waterfalls, and over 52 rapids, it's the ultimate adrenaline rush.
