Puntarenas is the largest city in the Central Pacific region, situated on a long, narrow peninsula in the Gulf of Nicoya. For many years, this port was the country’s principal cargo port but that distinction now goes to the newer port in Caldera. However Puntarenas is still Costa Rico’s most important fishing port and still handles visiting cruise ships.
