Photographer's Note

Puerto Limon was our next stop on the trial of the Conquistadors, a small town and the main port of Costa Rica on the Caribbean coast. Here, too, Columbus was clearly ahead of us - he landed in 1502

The city gained importance mainly through banana exports. The bananas were induced by a railway line that connected the capital of San José Limón, the port and from there into the world. Today the railroad is abandoned, however, go on a short section trains for tourists.
