Limón is a great choice for your next vacation rental in Costa Rica.
Limón is one of seven provinces in Costa Rica, found on the East coast, boarding the Caribbean Sea. Perhaps obviously, the name of the province comes from the lemon tree
. Most of the region is in the lowlands, while there are the mountainous ranges of Cordillera de Talamanaca on the South Western side of the province. The province borders Nicaragua to the North and Panama to the South. The capital city is Peurto Limón.
Of all the provinces in Costa Rica, Limón is perhaps the most culturally diverse.
There are multiple languages spoken here, in part due to the ties to the Caribbean islands. As well, indigenous populations remain quite abundant here.
The climate in Limón differs from elsewhere in the country. There is no cycle of dry and wet seasons, but rather it rains throughout the year. The driest months tend to fall in September and October, but throughout the year, the temperature is warm and humid
The capital city of Peurto Limón is much less cosmopolitan compared to the countries capital of San Jose. This is a less frequented destination choice, but by no means any less interesting. With accommodations abound, beach side villa rentals, vacation rentals and condo rentals are abundant here. Given the nature of a port town, there are often travelers and frequent exported goods passing through. The city hosts a festival called ‘Carnival’
in October, which coincides with Columbus Day or Día de la Raza. This is a must see if you are in the region during this time, as the week long event includes parades, food, music, dancing and a major concert on the last night of the festival.
Outside of the city, a key tourist destination includes Tortunguero. The site includes a system of natural lagoons and channels, which form the Costa Rica Amazons within the Tortuguero National Park
. As a host to an abundance of flora, fauna and turtles, this is a must see for any visitor to the region.
As in the rest of the Costa Rica, accommodations are plentiful in the province of Limón. Book your lodging soon to get a great deal on vacation rentals and condo rentals in the area.
