WHAT YOU VISIT

Parque Vargas
Limon's picturesque 115-year-old palm-lined seaside park boasts brightly colored tropical flowers, a quaint octagonal gazebo, monuments commemorating Limon's history, and beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean and Uvita Island where Christopher Columbus landed in 1502 on his fourth voyage.

Casa de la Cultura (The Cultural House)
Dating back to 1939, the Art Deco theater offers dance and art workshops and is the ideal venue for a live band performing the world-famous calypso music accompanied by live dancers. Celebrate its Afro-Caribbean rhythms and dance along.

United Fruit Company
Founded in 1899 by American entrepreneurs Minor Keith and Andrew Preston to transport bananas to the U.S., the company was acquired by Chiquita Brands International in 1984. The former building plays host to an interactive Caribbean gastronomical experience. Once inside, you'll learn how to prepare traditional Caribbean cuisine such as a beef hand pie called a "pati," gallo pinto" (rice and beans) and "plantintá," a sweet tart made with plantains.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
From the sloths and the spectacled owls that live in the trees inside Parque Vargas and the flourish of dancers at Casa de la Cultura to the views of Uvita Island, your camera will be working overtime.

SHOPPING
A stop at Playa Bonita Beach allows time to not only enjoy the ocean views but you'll have time to walk and shop for local handicrafts and souvenirs.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Enjoy a scenic journey along a coastal road to Playa Bonita, Limon's most popular and pretty beach.
