Puerto Lemon, Costa Rica
Not to be confused with Puerta Rica which is an island.
Puerta Lemon was founded in 1502 when Christopher Columbus landed here during his exploration of the New World.
I took a tour which incorporated a short trip on a 100 year old train, a bus and a boat ride on the Tortuguero canals (a type of everglades).
I saw a cayenne (??)(type of small crocodile).
Sloths sleeping in the trees – slothfully!
Bright green lizards.
And ate the sweetest pineapple you could ever imagine.
The part of Puerta Rica we passed through looked very poor.
I would not be on my list to visit again.
