Travel Blogs from Puerto Limon
We cannot judge Costa Rica by Puerto Limon. It appeared so unpleasant that I didn't bother to walk beyond the security of the port area gate. Did make it to the vendors' stalls set up in the terminal building within the port area, but that held little interest for me. Friends who have traveled the country have told us the Atlantic coast is almost a different country from the north (Pacific) side. I hope that is true.
