Salsa Brava Surfing

Wthin the Puerto Viejo region lies the legendary surf break known as Salsa Brava. With a name loosely translated as “angry sauce,” Salsa Brava is widely considered to be home to the best waves in the country and a welcoming travel destination for surfers of all skill levels.

 Numerous international surfing advocates have lauded Salsa Brava, claiming that the break has more than earned its grand reputation thanks to its consistently powerful waves. It has been described as an intense right tube that combines the fast action and challenge of Oahu’s Baby Backdoor and Laniakea.

The center stage of Puerto Viejo surfing features notoriously wild and challenging Salsa Brava.  Its boxy barrel hammers thunderously on a sharp shallow reef.  There are multiple fickle beach breaks within 15 kilometers of Salsa Brava.  Playa Negra is more of a beginner’s spot and going north you can find waves at Playa Cocles, Chiquita, and Grande.

Salsa Brava is a heavy reef break that offers Hawaiian style juice and barrels. The surfing at Salsa Brava is not for beginners, but there are some good beginner spots in the area.

The surf is generally biggest between December and March, but can be good almost any month with the flattest months being September and October.

Puerto Viejo, also known as Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, is a coastal town in the southeast portion of Costa Rica in the province of Limon.

Puerto Viejo is the Chill-Out Mecca of Costa Rica, main Puerto Viejo activities are; baking in the Sun on Cocles Beach and relaxing, or riding on you’re bicycles you’ve just rented to other Southern Beaches such as Uvita Beach, Playa Grande or Manzanillo. For us, Uvita and Manzanillo are two amazing and special beaches. Many of Costa Rica’s top ranked Surfers come from the small village of Puerto Viejo as they got to practice on the notorious reef break called Salsa Brava with waves getting to 12 ft. and 16 ft. in size.

Other than Surf and relaxing in the sun, there are many eco-related activities, snorkeling in the crystal turquoise waters of the Manzanillo National Park and Reef, visiting the Bri Bri indigenous people, going for a hike to the local beautiful waterfalls, 4X4 Quad Tours, Canopy Tours and a small butterfly farm are a few of the available activities.
