Limón Carnival lives again

October 2, 2009

Costa Rica´s Caribbean coast carnival – with its color and costumes, traditional food and flavor, music, art, horse shows and parades – is back after a two-year, forced hiatus.

The Limón Carnival will attract party revelers to the port city on the Caribbean starting with its kick-off Thursday and through Oct. 18.

This year´s carnival is the first since 2006, following cancelations by Costa Rica´s health authorities for fears about sanitation problems and dengue fever.

The event´s organizers expect to attract at least 5,000 visitors this year.
