Information not currently available.
Approximately 2¾ Hours
Enjoy a panoramic drive by comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach, passing through one of Limón’s oldest neighborhoods. Cieneguita was settled by the early Jamaican settlers of Costa Rica, and they built their houses on stilts. The conditions of the day involved coastal swamps, landslides, flooding, jungle fevers and heavy rains -- all hard-won battles.
Watch for Limón Airport, banana and cassava plantations, and beautiful vistas of the Caribbean Sea fringed by charming palm trees. Your knowledgeable tour guide will introduce you to Costa Rica's history and Afro-Caribbean culture as you travel through the beautiful landscapes of this coastal ride.
At a private venue, local dancers will greet you in colorful costume. They perform a live dancing repertoire strongly influenced by Caribbean rhythms, while the world-famous Tortuguero Canals form a scenic backdrop. This is your opportunity to learn about and appreciate Costa Rican cultural tradition.
Before returning to the ship, make the most of a chance to browse in the souvenir shop or sample a delicious seasonal fruit buffet and ice-cold drinks.
