Puntarenas - Pacific Port: The Central Pacific's largest city, Puntarenas sits on a long, narrow peninsula in the Gulf of Nicoya. For years, it was the country's principal port, and although a newer port in nearby Caldera handles cargo, Puntarenas now hosts cruise ships and a large fishing fleet anchors in the estuary behind town. Being the country’s most important fishing port, Puntarenas is the perfect place to enjoy fresh seafood (at surprisingly reasonable prices), such as camarones al ajillo (shrimp scampi), pescado entero (whole fried fish), or ceviche de mariscos (bits of fresh seafood marinated in lime juice with onions, peppers and spices).
Puntarenas is a lively town on weekends, when people from San José fill its waterfront restaurants and bars. A series of open-air 'kioskos' specializing in ice cream and fresh tropical fruit drinks line the beach and is the perfect place to head for dessert or refreshment.
