Welcoming world travelers since 1502
Since Christopher Columbus first dropped anchor just off its coast in 1502, the tranquil and hospitable town of Puerto Limon has been welcoming travelers from all over the world. Today, it’s the heart of Costa Rica’s Afro-Caribbean culture, and the gateway to many of the country’s best eco-adventures.
The 3,400-acre Veragua Rainforest Park is home to exotic monkeys, hummingbird and butterfly gardens, reptiles, sloths, and an aerial tram that travels through the rainforest canopy and takes you down to the Trail of the Giants (huge old growth trees). Take a boat ride down the canals of Tortuguero National Park or go snorkeling amongst the coral reefs in Cahuita National Park.
