The Caribbean or “Miskito” coast aka. in Spanish, Mosquito is part of the low population Limón Province. Limon sweeps south in an arc-like formation from Nicaragua to Panamá. Sitting between the dense jungles of the north & the waterway and on the west by the Cordillera Central and the south by the the Cordillera Talamanca, Limón has that real, remote kind of feel to it. If you are looking for palm-lined, sandy, tranquil Caribbean like waters that you may be a little disappointed. While Limón has a few good beaches most have a battered kind of feel, littered with driftwood. What Limon does offer is the opportunity to giant sea turtles lay their eggs on thebeaches of Tortuguero; snorkel coral reefs at beautiful Cahuita or Punta Uva; or catch some waves at Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.

Other attractions include: bird-spotting in the mangroves, and take in the incredibly powerful rivers of the Río Reventazón and Río Pacuaré considered two of the best rivers in North & Central America for white-water rafting.

Limón is one of those "road less travelled" kind of vacation destinations. You will not find package tours here, so it appeals to eco-tourists and those looking to find solitude and peace in a magnificent natural environment.

Limon province is home to the largest areas of protected land in Costa Rica, including the Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Barra del Colorado, on the Nicaraguan border, and Refugio Nacional de Vida Silvestre Gandoca-Manzanillo near Panamá in the south.



Limon has diverse microclimates. This means that there is no "best" time to visit here. The following description of Limon is from Wikipedia: Stretching along the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, the Limon province is a magical mixture of mangroves, pristine beaches and tropical forests. These picturesque lowlands sustain a rich natural beauty that conservationists are working hard to protect. . Here one finds sprawling banana plantations and thick, tropical jungle bordering the lofty Central Mountains. The Afro-Caribbean influence is evident everywhere, from the lyrical speech and reggae rhythms to the colorful wooden bungalows that line the laid-back, coastal villages. Almost a third of the province s sparse population live in and around the capital-port city of Puerto Limon, or simply Limon. Whether you are looking for the distinctive local culture or the blossoming ecotourism industry, just ask, "Wh appen, man?". Someone is sure to tell you, with a smile.
