Board your air-conditioned transportation and take a scenic drive through Puerto Limon. The province of Limon covers an area of approximately 14,702 square miles, with a total population of 169,000. Many of the residents are descendants from Jamaica that were originally brought to the country to build the railroad. After completion of the railroad, these Jamaicans stayed in the area to work on the cacao and banana plantations. From the pier you'll first head west, passing Cieneguita, the oldest part of Limon, which was constructed by the first Jamaican settlers. These houses were built on stilts to prevent flooding from overflowing coastal swamps, landslides and heavy rains.


Continuing south you'll pass the international airport into the countryside. The lush landscape alternates rainforest with banana and cacao plantations. Keep an eye out for the egrets, kingfishers, great blue herons and pelicans that call the coastal lowlands home. Visit a banana plantation for a close-up look and explanation of this delicious fruit. Finally, a brief stop will be made at a local shop, where you can purchase local souvenirs prior to returning to the ship.
