BEACHES

The beaches in the Province of Limon are excellent, refreshing and worthy of an adventure. In some cases you have to board a cruiser in Puerto Limon and then go across artificial canals, rivers and estuaries, anchor at magnificent shore spaces of white sands and a splendid tropical forests in order to discover them and enjoy their excel charms.

The Atlantic coast of Cahuita, south of Limon, offers an incomparable sense of solitude and full life. The beaches in this sector are surrounded by tropical vegetation and they are some sort of southern prolongation of the coral reefs of Central America's Caribbean coast.

The existence of these reefs configures an unavoidable setting for the practice of scuba diving and snorkelling. Here, besides the sea fauna, you can watch the remains of several galleon shipwrecks sunk in the XVII century. On the other hand, the turbulence of their waters guarantees excellent surfing days.

Amongst the most outstanding beaches we have:

It has an interesting flora and fauna and its amusement menu offers satiating dishes such as sport fishing, pleasant hikes, and of course the almost endless pleasure of the sun and the sea.

    Bonita Beach: Its name is in accordance with the attractions this hard to access beach has to offer, besides being an unrivalled scenery for the practice of surfing thanks to its strong breakers.
