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.
This charming and secluded beach is just a quick 10 minute drive from downtown Puerto Limon. Perfect for a little rest and relaxation, majestic palms provide shade from the warm Caribbean sun. Take a dip in the ocean or head to one of the surrounding restaurants for extra refreshments.
Take a leisurely boat ride through the heart of the rain forest. This tropical climate is home to several species of plants and animals. Listen for howler monkeys calling through the trees and keep your eyes peeled for sloths and the many species of tropical birds found in the area.
Cruise through jungle canals and admire the rich flora and fauna while enjoying tropical fruits and refreshments. A naturalist guide will lead you through the National Biodiversity Institute and the open-air tram through the canopy level of the rainforest.About Land Discoveries + Book Now +
