A very important port in the Pacific, Puerto Caldera sits near the opening of the Golfo de Nicoya. Situated in the northern region of the Puntarenas province - on the Central Pacific Coast - this little town is a key port for ships from all across the globe… A beautiful, unspoiled region, Puerto Caldera is a picturesque setting. A popular tourist attraction is the ‘Carara Biological Reserve'. About 20 miles south of Puerto Caldera, here you'll discover many species of animals that thrive in the region. For another natural attraction, try the ‘Poas Volcano National Park'. With its large smouldering volcano, it draws in many visitors. If you want to have a leisurely swim, head to the 'Esterillos Beach Area'. A favourite with water sport fanatics, activities include scuba diving, surfing and parasailing.
A popular purchase in Puerto Caldera is Costa Rica's renowned coffee – you'll discover bags of it for sale in many shops. There's a central market in the town, which sells anything from woodcarvings, linens and leather goods. You may also find a few artisans set up at the port, from them you can purchase unique, locally crafted souvenirs.
The local currency is the Colon. Puerto Calder is 6 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT -6 hours).
