There are no beaches for swimming or surfing in Limón. If you are keen on getting in the water, Playa Bonita, 4km northwest of town, has a pleasant, sandy beach.
The city’s waterfront centerpiece won't ever win best in show, but its decrepit bandstand, paths and greenery are surprisingly appealing, all shaded by palms and facing the docks.
The sea wall offers pleasant views of the rocky headland and the mesmerizing waves crashing against the concrete jetty. After dark, this is a popular mugging and make-out spot.
A landmark in the center of town.
