Explore Limon started in 2015 when Sergio designed his first walking tour: Take a Walk Limon. His main purpose was to promote the city of Limon as a destination for cruisers, little he knew about what he was getting into. He was amazed at the story of the city and always asked himself "Why does no one know about this?"
When studying the history of the city, Sergio realized the potential that it has, the "kidnaped" story about the United Fruit Company, the Panafricanism, the banana plantations, the Afro-Costarican, all which play a part in the story that he started spreading. Culture got involved: food, music, painting, every art expression was a form of the consequence of the memories of the city, language (Kriol), social battles. Each piece fits into his script, an interesting timeline that takes the participant through forgotten times of Limon and Costa Rica.
Explore Limon has been on several local and national radio shows, newspapers, magazines, and television. Sergio and his walking tour are well known at Limon and Costa Rica. He has been invited for seminars, workshops, panels, and as a speaker at congresses (I Congress for Metropolitan Solutions, II Encounter of Human Development and Sustainable Tourism) to give solutions from our heritage for our cities.
Sergio is in love with the city and he really enjoys walking around showing the hidden secrets of The Story behind Port Limon.
The tour is designed to experience the city, learn about history and the exploration of a new culture. Check out our FREE WALKING TOUR
