Limon- what to do we have never been

I would book any Tour that takes you up and away from the Port, as the Volcano and jungle scenery can be quite interesting. It's definitely not Urban.. so go 'Nature-oriented'. Boat tours Northward up their 'Intracoastal Waterway' can be nice if the weather cooperates.

When I was in Limon several years ago, I explored the town's connections with Marcus Garvey. That Jamaican-born creator of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, the first black mass movement in Americas, worked in Limon as a United Fruit timekeeper. I went to see his Black Star restaurant--and an abandoned meeting hall upstairs. The sign outside promised fried chicken in English, although Spanish is the main language of the multi-lingual town.

 

   The attached link describes the fire that destroyed that building. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g309264-d3961699-Reviews-Black_Star_Line_Restaurant-Puerto_Limon_Province_of_Limon.html
