Documenting Life

Mi Lindo
Caribe
There is one area of Costa Rica that is less known and that is differentiated by the rest of the country.
The Caraibica area, at the southern end of the country, has its epicenter in Puerto Viejo, a town with white beaches and a particular version of the Afro-Caribbean culture, which are kept alive by the descendants of Jamaicans who came here one day for work.

Here in the streets the local greeting is "yes man", where the monkeys and sloth bears mix with the yellow and red green colres that cover at least half of the businesses on the main avenue of the town. The music reagge leaves the premises and restaurants, and, in the streets, the dreadlocks walk in their smooth and light rhythm.
