Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Take a culture trip with a local guide and discover the colorful sights and sounds of Limon. From the pier, it's a short drive to Parque Vargas for a walking tour. Some of the treasures inside this historic park are monuments, the City Hall and views of the beautiful Uvita Island where Christopher Columbus landed in 1502. Next, you'll board a bus for a scenic drive along a coastal road to a nearby beach, where you will watch a live performance of calypso music and dancers (and don't be shy, you can join in!). The cultural journey continues with a visit to the historic United Fruit Company for an interactive Caribbean gastronomical experience. Here, you'll learn how to prepare traditional cuisine including the local version of rice & beans, the mild-spicy "Pati", and Caribbean dishes like "plantintá," a sweet tart made with plantains.

Special Notes:

The order of the excursion may vary according to the number of people and weather conditions. Not recommended for people with walking or mobility problems, must be able to take 20 steps to go upstairs in the historic building and walk at least 1 km unattended. Some walking is done on uneven sidewalks and need to be able to do steps.
