We had an outstanding guide in the Veragua Rainforest who obviously loved his job and delighted in teaching people about this Costa Rican ecosystem.

This is a dirty third world city. Tours to the rain forest are all there is, really, and if you've done it once, you've done it. A nice straw market on the pier, though. Probably the best bet.

Again dock in unsafe area. High police presence around dock area. People were warned that it wasn't safe to go beyond the crowded flea market type shopping area.

We'd booked an excursion, Cahuita through the eyes of a naturalist, but it was cancelled. There is really not much in Puerto Limon if you don't book a tour; we were docked at the commercial pier which required a pretty good walk to get to the port exit. Not a great port unless you do a tour. Read Less

Unless you are into the rainforest.....not much to do here. The infrastructure is very poor so getting around is difficult and the streets are dirty. However, the locals we interacted with seemed very friendly and engaging. Even after you had made a purchase they were more than willing to talk to you about their area....something you don't always see. Read Less

There is a small market at the port but not a whole lot to do in Limon itself. We got a tour guide for $40 a person for the day and headed south. Puerto Viejo - Cute little tourist town on the coast. Cahutia - Small town with a hotel and convenience store. Entrance to Cahuita National Park. Donation entrance to park. Saw iguana, sloth and monkeys. Tree of Life - A wildlife sanctuary in Playa Negra. Highly recommend going here. One tour a day a 11am. Lots of wildlife to see and beautiful plant life as well. If you have time visit the beach here. FYI...Local grocery stores did not carry any local chocolate. Read Less

Go see the tree of life and check out the public park (Don't pay for a tour.)

nothing really to unique about Puerto Limon. they had tours to take but nothing we were interested in doing. Mostly Eco type stuff that I could see would be of interest to some, just not to us.

We just went around town. Really, you can do all your souvenir shopping in the plaza attached to the port. Beyond that, there's a cafe that has wifi, otherwise there's just local shops and restaurants. We actually enjoyed go through town as we got a feel for the culture, food, and sounds. There's also a nice park near the port, lined with palm trees with a nice view of the ocean. Read Less

Went for a walk to see the market place. Did not realize there were such run down third world country conditions anywhere in America.

We enjoyed a walk around the downtown area, bought some souvenirs we really liked and had a young man in the park point out a sloth to us up in the trees.

Didn't partake in a tour, walked around and went to the "flea market". Had a wonderful massage for $15 - if I return I'm heading there first!
