Get the jerk chicken at the hut restaraunt. Its the ish.
Coolest city on Pacific coast. Got a bad rap from some isolated violated violence but its aaaight. Awesome food and a great bar with live Reggae. Off the beaten track a bit. watch out for the theiving ass monkeys.
Cahuita An excellent beach break, not well known and therefore not heavily visited. Nevertheless, there are waves all year round.

playa negra - The beach and town are radical. The surf can get really fun in the late winter early spring. Surfed the left off big boys w/ my buddy head high+ for like 3 days straight. Super fast super dank. Also if its small drive south and you can score something.

Nice Place - Stayed in Cahuita for 2 weeks and had a blast. When the swells are coming in the surf is good but it does close out fairly fast. I prefered Playa Negro to Playa Blanco just because it's free and not as many tourists use it.

cahuita rip off - Cahuita surf sucks i ve passed it 3 times in 3 years and never saw decent surf it needs at least a 19 feet swell and will probably 70 percent closeout then. The town is full of gringos the Locals just act as decoration and are hanging round in the streets bothering you for cigarettes and shitty weed, i get better stuff at home. Its expensive I paid 8 $ for a crappy fish n chips plate white beach is nice national park area as well but dont bother to snorkel in the reef the corals are all dead, from the pesticides they sprayed in the Banana plantations, though i met a lonely 2 mtr reef shark looking for food
dont buy chiquita bananas
better organic products.
Nice basic place to stay is back packers paradise 7 $ p.P.
I m off to Bocas del toro for new years Bluff beach has hopefully the size that I want
