If you are looking for a real glimpse into the daily life and culture of Costa Rica, it is difficult to find a better example than Puerto Limon. This is a hugely significant city because it is the most important port in the country. It has a long and interesting history dating all the way back to 1502 when Columbus landed at this port while exploring the New World. The port itself was founded much later, in 1870, and it was used primarily to provide the bananas and grain which were abundant in Costa Rica all across the globe. Nowadays, this city is more famous for its cashews. Come to Puerto Limon and see the cultural and fascinating sights in one of Costa Rica’s oldest and most prominent cities, right in the Limon province.
