Fodor's Expert Review Veragua Rainforest

Limon Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge Fodor's Choice

Limón's hottest attraction is a 4,000-acre nature theme park, about 30 minutes west of the city. It's popular with cruise-ship passengers in port for the day and is well worth a stop if you're in the area. Veragua's great strength is its small army of enthusiastic, super-informed guides who take you through a network of nature trails and exhibits of hummingbirds, snakes, frogs, butterflies, and other insects. A gondola ride overlooks the complex and transports you through the rain-forest canopy. A branch of the Original Canopy Tour, with nine platforms rising 150 feet above the forest floor, is here. The zipline tour is not included in the basic admission to the park.
