Southern Caribbean Cruising — Puerto Limón; Setting out on foot


Vargas Park, Limón, Costa Rica

Before we leave Vargas Park, let’s take a quick gander at a colorful local vender of refreshments:

Looking for something a bit chillier? How about this for a treat:

Ice cream, sweetened condensed milk, fruit and chocolate syrups

We left behind the park and started heading west, I believe on Ángel Miquel Velázquez. About three blocks west of Vargas Park this becomes a pedestrian shopping street:

The vendors in this area are worthy of some camera attention:

On the corner of Ángel Miquel Velázquez and Calle 4 you’ll find this wonderful Correos (Post Office):

But don’t hurry by, lest you miss out on some fun details:

Directly across the street is a very active shopping area:

Of course, produce stores are always a colorful subject:
