Puerto Limon Cruises

Puerto Limon
Puerto Limon
Yellow Pavilion in Parque Vargas in City Park, Costa Rica

Although the harbour was not built until 1870 – to export Costa Rican bananas and grain – Puerto Limon is one of the oldest cities in Latin America. It was established in 1502 by Christopher Columbus and that long history has given the place some fascinating architecture and a vibrant atmosphere. The open-air market in the centre of town is a must-see, the place to buy anything from local handicrafts to clothes and household goods. In the side streets are interesting little bars and cafés: cashew nuts are an important crop locally, and the cashew wine is a speciality.

With enough time, it is fun to take a trip in a panga – a motorboat – along the Tortuguero Canal, which runs parallel with the coast for about 200km.[ReadMoreMob] Even during a short trip it is possible to see many unusual birds, as well as alligators, turtles and bats.
