Parque Vargas (Vargas Park), located in Limón, was given by United Fruit Co., a plantation company, that at the end of the 19th Century donated a field of 42009.6 acres to the city of Limón. Due to this donation, in 1895 thanks to Balvanero Vargas, who got vegetal specie from other Caribbean areas like Cuba or Jamaica, the park was constructed. To construct this park was hired Andrés Bonife, a Frenchman who was living in Martinique, he inspired his designs in Versailles.

In this way, Vargas Park was created, it is a relaxing place of Caribbean greenery, but with a distinctive touch given by its neoclassical kiosko, from which you can observe the sea.

The best time to visit this park is in Christmas, because it is gorgeous.
