THE CARIBBEAN COAST

THE CARIBBEAN COAST

The Carribean coast is protected by two National Parks and two Forest Wildlife Refuges. It forms part of the province of Limon that covers 18% of Costa Rica, a third of the inhabitants are black, from Jamaican descendants, the vast majority live on the coast, and speak English as well as their own dialect. There are also several Bribri and Cabecar indigenous that inhabit the south of the Province. The main road from San José to this area ends in the Province of Puerto Limón, to the south there is a parallel route that leads to the Panama border.  If you are heading north you will need to take a boat trip and navigate the canals, through areas that are abundant in wildlife and some small ports for distant fishing boats, until you reach the Nicaragua border.
