We made a big effort to get to the rainforest to see the animals. We travelled well over an hour by taxi and didn't see a single animal or bird. While I realise it is a natural habit and you can't predict what animals do it was really a sad day for us. Great facilities and friendly guides but pricey... More

After a pleasant ride from our ship in Puerto Limon we entered the rainforest. We saw a strawberry tree frog, sloths, butterflies and other interesting flowers (including the main ingredient for Chanel #5 - wish I could remember the name....) as we drove up thru the forest to our departure point for the zip line. It was billed as the... More

We visited Veragua Rainforest Park with an excursion from our ship. Inside we visited the nocturnal exhibit and the butterfly farm. They were both fascinating and the guides were very knowledgeable. If you have more time, you definitely need to experience the other activities the park has to offer. Bring a raincoat and/or hat. We got there the weather was... More

We visited the rainforest as an excursion through our cruise ship. It was a long drive but so worth it. Our guide was great and to see and go through the rainforest was pretty cool. Highly recommend. Saw birds, monkeys, sloths and a deadly snake (but not too close).

One of our stops last month on a 12 day cruise was Limon, Costa Rica. We picked the shore excursion through our ship that would take us to the Veragua Rainforest. Our tour guide gave us interesting information about the city and the country on the drive up into the mountains. At the rainforest entrance, we were divided into groups... More

My parents and I did the Veragua tram tour. We split into two groups because there was a 400 step (round trip) hike to see a waterfall. While on the tour we saw snakes, reptiles, frogs, toads, a butter fly sanctuary and a two toed sloth. Catia was a wonderful guide and gave us a good idea of what life... More

The canopy tour is a great insight into the workings of the rain forest without boots on the ground in the depth of the Amazon. The great thing is that when they've developed this attraction they have done so in the most sustainable way possible and once out of the modest built up area and on the canopy tour the... More
