About the Neighborhood

The neighborhood of Playa Chiquita is perfect, because it's a quiet neighborhood, but you find restaurants, a store, bar with music, etc. without being in the middle of Puerto Viejo, which is more noisy to rest. From Playa Chiquita, there are the most beautiful beaches, and if at night you want to go to Puerto Viejo, you can go by taxi without any problem.
