    On this side (Caribbean) of the country September and October are typically the driest months of the year. The water is also pretty calm, so it makes for a great time of the year to visit.

    Hello! In Puerto Viejo there is two ATMs from Banco Nacional and Banco de Costa Rica. They open from 8am to 10pm all week. Town from us is located 1.5 miles away. Hope to see you soon!
