Things to Do — By Sophia LaMonica on September 30, 2011 at 11:48 pm

This old rusted barge sits just off the shore of Playa Negra, at the entrance to Puerto Viejo de Limon. A rusty-but-not-forgotten symbol of the town’s history with the banana trade, the barge is now home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. Snorkeling its basin is possible when waters are calm,  as they have been this week. The waves that break at Playa Negra around the barge are best for beginners, and break in the morning.
