Puerto Limón, commonly known as Limón, is the capital city and main hub of Limón province, Puerto Limón contains two port terminals, Limón and Moín, which permit the shipment of Costa Rican exports as well as the anchoring of cruise ships. A small island, Uvita Island, is just offshore. Puerto Limón is famous in Costa Rica for its yearly fall festival called carnival, which occurs the week of October 12, the date Columbus first anchored off Limón's coast in 1502, on his fourth voyage. The event was started by local community leader and activist, Alfred Josiah Henry Smith (known as "Mister King"), who helped organize the first carnival in October 1949. The event stretches about a week (across two weekends), and includes a parade, food, music, dancing, and, on the last night, a concert in the Parque Vargas headlined by a major Latino or Caribbean music act.
