Limon

Limon is a lovely city in the South of Costa Rica. It is also frequently known as Puerto Limon. It has a very relaxed vibe, due largely in part to the Jamaican descendants and their unique and laid back culture. The weather is generally nice all year round, although sometimes it’s plagued with severe thunderstorms. However, in the summer it is usually hot all day long so remember to pack your sun block, sun glasses and visor when you go out for the day in Limon.  

Mostly, Limon is known for its tranquil and beautiful Caribbean beaches as well as some outdoor activities such as water rafting. The best two rivers to water raft in are the Pacuari River and the Reventizon River. The latter has class two rapids which are for beginner white water rafters.  

Other things you can do in Limon include going on a tour of the jungle where you will be able to see the wild life of Limon, including sloths and different snakes and insects. If you like Iguanas than you should check out the Iguana Conservation Tour at the Iguana Verde Foundation.
