Jesus in Mark 16:15 tells the eleven, "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature". These were the instructions given by Jesus to the one's who first turned the world upside down. The instructions Jesus by given on that day still hold true for today and must be fulfilled so that every kindred, tongue, nation, and people can hear and receive the good news about our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The northern coast of Costa Rica near the Nicaraguan border, Barra Del Colorado boasts superb tarpon fishing that draws fishermen from around the world. Other fish caught in the area include snook and calba, which run upstream from December to January.
The port city of Limon is Caribbean flavor all the way. Capital of the Afro-Caribbean culture in Costa Rica, Limon possesses dialects based on the English that have survived thanks to the natural barriers between the Central Valley and the Caribbean Coast.
If a stop in Limon produces a little culture shock, it's a good equalizer for the journey ahead.
About an hour south of Limon is Cahuita, another charming Caribbean town, which lends its name to Cahuita National Park.
The town's original location was in Cahuita's Point where William Smith, a turtle fisherman of Afro-Caribbean origin from Panama and Cahuita's first inhabitant settled in 1828. The town has maintained true to its African roots and this influence can be observed in the colorful houses, clothing, customs, clothing, gastronomy, music, and celebrations.
