Puntarenas Costa Rica Map
We created a Puntarenas province map that illustrates the largest province in our country. For many years Puntarenas has been the main port along with Limon and its streets hold quite a lot of history. Puntarenas means 'sandy point'. On this wonderful Puntarenas province map you can locate the world famous beaches of Jaco, Manuel Antonio, Montezuma and Hermosa beach are some of the breathtaking locations found here. The main town used to receive the electrical train for many years and transport all imports and passengers that arrived into the port all the way to San Jose While in Puntarenas you can experience some of our oldest traditions: enjoy eating a whole fresh grilled fish and have a 'Churchill' for dessert in one of the many restaurants and sodas along the shore. A 'Churchill' is sort of like a milkshake made of crushed ice powder and condensed milk and 'sirope' a traditional beverage, Puntarenas is a regular stop for major cruise liners and tourism is right now their major industry.
During peak season, Puntarenas is quite a display of culture; you can participate in local concerts and art expositions at 'La Casa de la Cultura'. If you happen to visit Puntarenas in the month of November, you can enjoy a traditional party: the Festejos Populares, a fair that has carnivals, music, parades and usual fair attractions, a true exposure of true Costa Rica lifestyle. This party honors the Virgin of the Sea and there are many activities to celebrate this special holiday. Our Puntarenas Costa Rica map displays the best shore spots allong with this region's exhuberant locations.
