Fodor's Review

On the left side of the highway as you enter Limón is a large cemetery. (A glance as you pass by is really enough.) Notice the "Colonia China" ("Chinese colony") and corresponding sign in Chinese on the hill in the cemetery: Chinese workers made up a large part of the 1880s railroad-construction team that worked here. Thousands died of malaria and yellow fever.
