When Do You Want To Go?

The province of Limon sits 2.5 hours east of Costa Rica’s capital San José. With Caribbean coastline stretching from Nicaragua to Panama, it’s one of the greenest and most unspoilt regions in the country. With mangroves, mountains and lush tropical forests it’s untouched by many tourists, making it the perfect place to reconnect with nature.
The largest city in the province is Puerto Limon, a colourful town with museums and parks, and to the north, beautiful Tortuguero National Park sits majestically amongst labyrinth canals. The national park is explored mainly by water, and visitors can canoe or kayak to gain the best views of sea turtles, monkeys and rare West Indian manatees.
When it comes to activities, Limon province offers many. Whether you wish to relax on stunning palm-fringed Caribbean beaches, zip line through forests, snorkel and dive in Cahuita National Park or party in Puerto Viejo, you are sure to have a fabulous time!

Why should you go to Limon?

If you have visited the cities of San José and Liberia, explored rural communities and taken in the more populated west coast of Costa Rica, Limon is a welcome change. Relatively unspoilt, it offers guests the chance to get back to nature with secluded shores, national parks and rare wildlife, bird and marine life. It’s a laid-back province where you can truly immerse yourself in a fascinating blend of Costa Rican and Caribbean cultures, and that alone is a good enough reason to visit.

What is the best time to visit Limon?

Limon has a tropical monsoon climate, yet some days rainfall only lasts for a couple of hours. Throughout the year temperatures range between 72 and 86-degrees Fahrenheit with 6 to 7 hours of sunshine per day. The wettest months are May to November, so if you seek a little beach fun during your stay in Limon, good times to visit are between December and late April. Don’t dismiss other times of the year though, they are perfect for venturing into the forests and mountains and exploring national parks of Limon.

How do I reach Limon?

You can fly into the Costa Rican capital San José and drive to Limon in around 2.5 hours. There’s a frequent bus service which operates from San José to Puerto Limon and some even transport you to coastal resorts across the region. It’s worth bearing in mind that if you drive to northern Limon, many areas of Tortuguero National Park are only accessible by boat, therefore choose hotels on the perimeter of the national park if you wish to visit.
