Fodor's Expert Review Cemetery

Limon Cemetery

On the left side of the highway as you enter Limón is a large cemetery. A glance as you pass by is probably enough, but 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.
