Fodor's Expert Review Veragua Rainforest Eco-Adventure

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 46 meters (150 feet) above the forest floor, is here. The zip-line tour is not included in the basic admission to the park. Packages including transportation (a minimum of two people) can be arranged to and from San José (admittedly a very long trip), to and from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, or starting out at one and ending at the other.
