Puerto Limon Banana Plantation Excursion Reviews
Closed on Sunday, not much to see, but tasted some product and heard a little explanation on the banana industry in Costa Rica. Please note at the port, there is a small bulding with all kinds of shopping from a lively bar, washrooms, local coffee, all sorts of clothing, souveiners of all kinds, massages etc. fully stocked with merchendise,but building is secured and only vehicular traffic is allowed in and out, that is secured which means, no excursion, no exit for you, you must remain in the secured area in port.
Again interesting and enlightening : the Plantation information was very interesting will never look at a banana in the same way again.
Train journey was an eye opener from the 'houses ' with no roof or walls except mud but the Satellite Dish was in pride of place. The Flora and Forna and the birds and animals were interesting and beautiful
Really very interesting to see a Del Monte banana plantation from the time the bananas are pulled in the assembly line. From the sorting to the washing and labeling of the banana. Our bus driver even stopped and picked up small 3 inch bananas for us to peel and try.
We saw one of the many banana plantations. There were rows of banana trees. We visited the packing operation and witnessed the bananas being processed and packed for shipping. We were educated about the growing, packing, and transportation of bananas. Very interesting.
