Caribbean Coast Places



Getting Here

Moín is a quick taxi ride from the center of Limón. You'll probably be able to negotiate a waterway and national-park tour with a local guide, and if you call in advance, you can arrange a tour with the man considered the best guide on the Caribbean coast:

Modesto Watson. Local indigenous Miskito guide Modesto Watson is legendary for his bird- and animal-spotting skills as well as for his howler-monkey imitations. The family's Riverboat Francesca can take you up the canals for two-day–one-night excursions to Tortuguero for $200 to $220 per person, depending on the lodge used. 2226–0986; 810/433–1410 in North America.
