Home from Colonial Period in Limbe

In the Arrondissement du Limbé sits the town of Limbé, with 32,200 occupants. Limbé is sub-divided into seven partitions: Tanmas, Haut-Limbé, Souffrieres, Ravine-des-Roches, Simalo, Camp-Coq, and Plaisance.

Important to agricultural viability of Limbé is the Limbé River, which irrigates crops of bananas, mangoes, and other tropical fruits. Coffee farming and rice growing also occur.
