Well known for a long lasting democracy and a lack of army, Costa Rica stands for human rights, as an example, as soon as you step in Costa Rica (in our case in Port Limón) you have the same rights as any costarrican, excepting vote, for that you must apply for a costarrican citizenship, then you can vote.

What to bring in a Limón rain forest tour:

Heliconias

Over 200 species of Heliconia in Central and South America, only three are found outside this region, in Solomon Islands and somewhere in Africa, and in this places those heliconias are not colorful as in the big majority found in tropical Americas, but green, and this is because in these places there are no hummingbirds, so Heliconias are bat pollinated, and bats need no colors in order to find their target.

All this profusion of color in what we think is a flower really comes from modified leaves also known as bracts, this modification of leaves into colorful and hard-tissue apparatus, plays the same function as in petals in roses, which is to advertise like in a billboard: "Please Mr Hummingbird come to drink nectar so I´l be pollinated". Such strategy may be related to the heavy rain that quickly destroys petals in this environment, all these bracts are long lasting, and if you observe carefully, you will probably find the tiny cream-colored tiny flowers hidden inside de bract.

Bonita means nice, and it really is! A golden sand beach, with its ocean sometimes flat and calm, and sometimes a place for strong & expert surfers to enjoy a very enclosed tube and powerful lip.

The earlier you arrive the better in order to avoid crowd, normally this happens only Saturdays and Sundays.

If you leave your belongings unattended while swimming they will definitely will be gone once you return.

If medium to strong waves are present definitely a strong rip tide will ocurre, ask for advice before getting into the ocean.
