Limón places at your disposal 336 kilometers of white sand, beaches, and palm trees, as well as amazing national parks of protected tropical rainforests and coral reefs, and hundreds of endangered species of flora and fauna.
The entire Caribbean coast of the country is within this province. In this region, important scientific research is carried out and it has become a special place for scientific and ecological tourism. Among the main aspects of the Afro-Limonese culture is their use of Spanish and English, the majority of the population being bilingual, although they also speak Mekatelyu.
