The Southern Caribbean Coast

The landscape along the Guápiles Highway changes from farmland to tropics as you approach the port city of Limón. Place names change, too. You'll see signs to towns called Bristol, Stratford, and Liverpool, reflecting the region's British Caribbean heritage. European backpackers discovered tourist towns par excellence Cahuita and Puerto Viejo de Talamanca; now visitors of all nationalities and budgets flock there.
