Puerto Limon, Costa Rica information
The Caribbean coast of Costa Rica , represented by Puerto Limon province, has only 200 kilometers of shore line and we divide it in two big regions: North and South Caribbean :
North Caribbean comprises the Caribbean coast and goes from the San Juan River to Limon City. Limon city is the touristy center of this Corridor, simultaneously working as an accommodation, stop over, distribution and touring center.
Green turtle's nesting on Tortuguero National Park and bass 's, shad's and other species's sport fishing at Barra del Colorado National Wild Life Refugee represent the main attraction of the region. It is complimented with the river channel's system; which connects Moin Port with Barra del Colorado, and has become a singular attraction and the only way of transportation.
North Caribbean comprises the Caribbean coast and goes from the San Juan River to Limon city. Limon city is the touristy center, simultaneously working as an accommodation, stop over, distribution and touring center.
South Caribbean goes from Limon to the Panama border, Limon is the primary tourist center as well as a distribution center. The region shows a country-unique combination of beaches, natural resources and afro American culture in Cahuíta, Puerto Viejo and Gandoca Manzanillo.
Limon's development is quite different from the rest of the Caribbean Island , which gives it an special potential to distinguish Costa Rican products. High quality beaches allow adventure and natural history activities which definitely compliment with culture, gastronomy and music. Standing out are the reefs, multicolor-sanded beaches (from black to yellow and gray), coastal vegetation and medium-high forest.
Cahuíta National Park and Gandoca Manzanillo Reserve are worldwide recognized, not only because of their natural beauty but because they are becoming unique conservation places in almost the whole Caribbean.
Tourists can enjoy this activity in communities such as Tortuguero, Limón, Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo, observing architecture, landscapes and local flora and fauna, visiting indigenous communities, taking photographs and more.
Guided or unguided hikes may be enjoyed in communities, natural areas and coastal zones to take in various natural, historical, architectural, social, artistic and cultural attractions.
The region boasts many picturesque trails—Cahuita–Puerto Vargas, Puerto Viejo–Manzanillo and others—some for adventure, recreation or relaxation and others for enjoying nature.
Photography is one of the worthy activities because of it's cultural, architectonic and landscaping interest, as well as the flora and fauna, waterfalls, rivers and the wide range of banana, decoration plants, cocoa and other plantations.
