This publication is contributing to the present historiography in presenting one of the first studies, which tries to explain the importance of the province of Limon to its Afro-Costa Rican population. The book is shifting the focus of earlier historiography, which mentions Afro- Caribbean immigrants of the railroad, and of banana cultivation, making visible and presenting the community of Afro-Caribbean and particularly Jamaican descendants in Costa Rica as active subjects of history.  Esta publicación está contribuyendo a la presente historiografía presentado uno de los primeros estudios que tratan de explicar la importancia de Limón para su población Afro-Costarricense. El libro cambia el enfoque de publicaciones anteriores que mencionan al inmigrante Caribeño y a sus descendientes únicamente dentro del contexto de la construcción del ferrocarril y las plantaciones de banano, haciendo a la comunidad Afro-Caribeña y a sus descendientes en Costa Rica visibles y sujetos activos de la historia.
