Proposed Development Would Turn Limon Into The Cancun of Costa Rica

The idea is to expand the tourist development of Limón to give visitors more variety

Limon beaches

An ambitious project of the Cámara de Comercio, Industria y Turismo de Limón (Limon Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Tourism) aims to turn the province into a Costa Rican version of Cancun, through a major hotel development along the coast.

La Zona Hotelera del Caribe (the Caribbean Hotel Zone), as the initiative has been called, consists of the development of 500 hectares of “all-inclusive” hotels. Investment in the first stage is US$40 million, a figure that does not include the hotels.

If Limón wants to attract mass tourism, according to the Chamber, it needs the following projects to materialize:

  • Enlargement of Ruta 32
  • Improvements to Ruta 36
  • An international cargo and passenger airport
  • A cruise ship dock
  • A marina in Moín
  • A special hotel zone
