A dinky town situated in the Puntarenas province of Costa Rica, Puerto Jiménez is known for its natural beauty, diverse wildlife and proximity to Corcovado National Park. This makes it a popular jumping off point for visitors wishing to explore the nature-filled national park, and it’s certainly worth getting stuck into the hiking, birdwatching and wildlife-spotting tours on offer here. As well as playing host to some of the most pristine and untouched rainforests in Central America, the national park is home to several species of monkeys, sloths, toucans and macaws. Puerto Jiménez itself offers a range of activities,
like kayaking and surfing, and if you’re lucky, you might even spot the dolphins, whales and sea turtles that inhabit the nearby ocean. If you’re searching for a cultural scene, Puerto Jiménez boasts a variety of restaurants, bars and local artisan markets. You’ll find stalls selling traditional Costa Rican dishes (like ceviche and gallo pinto), handmade crafts and jewellery throughout the central market, which only adds to the town’s already vibrant feel. This hidden gem of Costa Rica is worth visiting for a true taste of the country’s rich natural and cultural heritage.
