The Limon Coast
This southern Caribbean coast attracts surfers, snorkelers and reggae enthusiasts as well as ordinary tourists and ecology
buffs who want to savor the unique tropical environment. Weather patterns here are unpredictable, with no sharp
distinction between winter and summer. Rain can fall at any time, and usually does. Winds often blow down from the north,
sometimes causing the Caribbean coast to duplicate Miami's weather. I recall one time in Puerto Viejo, when Miami was suffering from one
of those rare, orange-freezing winter storms. The frosty winds didn't linger in Miami, they blustered on down to Costa Rica's
Caribbean coast. Unprepared for
cold, I pulled on every piece of clothing I had with me, and shivered the night away huddled under a flimsy blanket. I had to
keep reminding myself that I was in the Caribbean tropics and not in Kalispell, Montana. All the while, San Jose's temperature
remained a normal 65 degrees - but this is very rare and usually it is hot year around.
Puerto Viejo in the other hand is a paradise for tourist, unique restaurants and bars beautiful beaches, every thing is in a walking distance and if you pick up a bicycle ?you can reach most of the beaches to the south of the village in half an hour.
