Wild Caribbean beach of Manzanillo near Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Costa Rica's beaches are known for their unspoiled beauty, and the ones in the province of Limon are especially popular for their Caribbean vibe. Relax in the white sand and warm waters at Playa Bonita, Playa Blanca or Puerto Viejo. Pick up souvenirs at the stalls set up by the water, sip on a fresh coconut, stroll by the shore as you take in the palm-fringed coast.
Limon is home to several outdoor attractions, including nature thrills like river rafting and zip-lining. If you're a nature fan looking for a more contemplative outing, then head to the Tortuguero Canal, where you can paddle among water lilies, orchids and sea turtles. Have your camera ready to catch the sloths dangling from the trees, the iguanas jumping into the water and the tropical birds overhead.
Taste your way through Puerto Limon and enjoy the mealnge of Spanish and Afro-Caribbean flavors. Cruise to Puerto Limon and try the distinctive dish rondon, a hearty, ginger-spiced stew of coconut milk, yams and seafood, typically fresh white fish and crab. Or sip on an agua de sapo (ginger lemonade) and snack on patacones (fried plantains) and chicharrones, slices of deep-fried pork belly brightened up with a pinch of lime.
Puerto Limon's shopping experience is as laidback as its beachy mood. Stop by casual Mercado Municipal for leatherware, ceramics, pottery and wood carvings, or go to shoreside shops in beaches like Playa Bonita for ocean-inspired souvenirs during your Costa Rica cruise.
