About Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

The second-largest city in Costa Rica, Puerto Limon will leave you with a lifetime of memories. Soak in the distinct Caribbean flavor of the city's world-famous Carnivale de Limon. See the wonder of the sea turtle nesting grounds in Tortugero. Delight in the dolphins at Manzanillo National Park. Or, if ultimate relaxation is your goal, sprawl luxuriously on any of the area's lavish sand beaches.

Our “Meet the Sloths” tour was fascinating and a great learning experience. It was my favorite excursion of the cruise and you better book early since it’s the first to sell out. You’ll visit a sanctuary and take a canoe ride through a dense forest to witness animals.

Beautiful beaches. We toured the Jaguar Rehabilitation Center. Interesting, informative experience and we were treated to a delicious lunch by locals as part of the tour.

She said this ziplining experience had much longer runs that were fast and lots of fun. Plus, it was $50 per person, compared with a much higher price via the ship's. We had a BLAST!!! We saw a sloth up in a tree, huge iguanas, and were up high in the rainforest canopy. Based on the median age of this cruise, 71, and the fact that Princess caters to an older demographic, I'm guessing that the ship's ziplining excursion was a bit tamer. I highly recommend Jungle Breezes -- dont be taken aback by the rugged drive there, which happens to be much, much closer than the Veragua ziplining location. It was nice to have a short...
