Why Puerto Viejo de Talamanca? Puerto Viejo de Talamanca is a laid-back village on the Caribbean coast, situated between the forested hills of the Talamanca mountains and the sea. Familiar sounds of Bob Marley fill the streets and contribute to the relaxed atmosphere since the locals are mainly of Afro-Caribbean descent. The quiet beaches during the day are a far cry from the lively party town inland at night where the area is bustling with tourists and surfers alike. Street vendors tout trinkets and rustic bamboo bars pump dance and reggaetón beats until the early hours.

Cute teacher (Elmer) and good location. Nice that the teachers are up for weekend-/ day trips
Sometimes a somewhat clearer structure would have been better. 2 hour lesson might mean that your teacher is 10 minutes late and you have a 10 minute break so you effectively do have shorter lessons.
