    This was an excellent excursion from a cruise. With an excellent and patient park guide, we were able to experience this tropical reserve away from the coastal city. In addition to the interesting exhibits and presentation about the research being conducted, there were opportunities to see local wildlife in situ. Walks of various difficulties were available, and though I didn't partake, the zip-line was very active.

    A short visit however a highly enjoyable and educational one. Everyone was so friendly and explained the life cycle of the beautiful butterflies. We saw tiny frogs, turtles and so many butterflies. Unfortunately the sloth was in hiding. We were treated to some delicious organic fruit grown in their own garden. Well worth a stop on any tour. Thanks Oscar and team.

    We gather a lot of information about the history of this city and saw its real beauty. Indeed the best of Limon is its people! Thank you so much!

    This was a great excursion. Exploradores Outdoors was the tour provider - via Princess Cruises shore excursions. Tour guides were excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable. The river was fun! Decent rapids but nothing crazy, don’t worry. Saw a couple sloths along the way... we were actually able to pull over to get out of the raft for a closer look. Buffet lunch afterwards was a nice touch. Highly recommend. Thanks guys!

    You don't exactly think visiting a church while in Costa Rica. It's all about the beaches. But if you are like us, among the Christian faithful, or you just appreciate beautiful architecture, you should go. In addition to the simplicity of it's design the sense of reverence is profound. It is serene. And you will need all of that serenity to recovery from the Limon traffic and to prepare for your drive back. It is certainly worth the effort. There is an open gate to get into the grounds (which are beautiful) and into the church. You can park inside the gate or on the street.

    I loved this beach. The water was nice and refreshing, and the food was decently priced and delicious. There are umbrellas and chair for purchase. The only problem was that the semi-strong waves made it hard for certain people to enjoy the water.

    Stopped on this beautiful beach to have a picnic. Very natural easy to park on the side of the road. Scenic and private at the time we were there with locals swimming and fishing

    Eric and Jose run a great operation. We highly recommend doing this! We learned a lot about Costa Rica as well as seeing a Sloth, Poisonous Dart Frogs and learning about banana plantations. Take the time and check them out. They will show you a great time!!

    the casa de la cultura is a place that allows the hosting of classes, meetings, presentations, etc for free or by donation and features a large and wonderful mural on the bag wall of the town and its people. its built in the traditional carribbean style and has lots of good vibes. the local farmers market is held on saturdays next door.

    If you are close by the port walking along the seawall you will run into this park. Few nice pieces of art in the park which was clean when we were there. Some local vendors. Once walk thru the park will come to a wide road with more art work and plenty of shopping along the road and down the alleys, road is closed to traffic. Christmas tree is up. Best and safest place to walk in limon in my opinion. Lots of fresh shrimp for sale.

    Had a wonderful time! As a smoker it was irritating though since there were only a couple places to smoke in each park. I understand there is no more smoking inside the park now at all. Fast passes helped with the crowds. Bring lots of money as it is expensive. We stayed off the grounds at the beautiful Sheraton Vistana Resort. Accommodations were great!
