Puerto Limon, known commonly as Limon (the Spanish for "lemon"), is the main hub and capital city of Limón province, as well as of the canton of Limón in Costa Rica. It is the 6th-largest city in Costa Rica, with a population of more than 55,000, and is home of multicultural community. Part of the community traces its roots to Jamaican, Chinese and Italian laborers who worked on a late 19th-century railroad project which connected San José to Puerto Limon. Until 1948, the government of Costa Rica did not recognize Afro-Caribbeans as citizens and restricted their movement outside the province of Limón. As a result of the "travel ban", the Afro-Caribbean population became established in the region, which influenced a decision to not move even after it was legally permitted. Today, there is an important outflow of Puerto Limon natives who move to country's Central Valley in search for better education and employment.
Puerto Limon has two port terminals, Moín and Limón, which permit shipment of Costa Rican exports and anchoring of cruise ships. Hospital Dr.Tony Facio Castro provides health care for the city. Two little islands, Isla de Pájaros and Uvita Island, are just offshore.
