The Caribbean Zone is located between the coast of the Caribbean Sea and borders of Nicaragua and Panama. The temperature in the coastal areas oscillates between 25ºC and 27ºC; therefore the warmest days fall between May and the end January the temperature reaches 31ºC. . In the Caribbean Coast, the dry season is divided into two periods: February to March and September to October. Again, like the other regions there is a period when the rain ceases -Saint John's Short Summer, in July. This region is different than the others because of its people and culture particular characteristic of the Caribbean Islands. The principal access to this zone is through the city of Limón (consisting mainly of afro Caribbean people since 1870) where the plantation of banana and portuary activities are of great importance for Costa Rica's national economy. The Caribbean Zone is the most humid region of Costa Rica, because of the wind influence coming from the Caribbean Sea. The rainfall in the lowlands of this region reaches 3000 mm per year and up in the highlands increases to 4500 mm.
