Thank you Carol and Oscar for making our two days in Limon so enjoyable. We appreciated being met at the dock and being taken everywhere where we wanted by Oscar and his being flexible with our various activities. We also appreciated his good driving and commentary.

Found Oscar Brown Tours on the internet. We had a group of 10 and wanted a private excursion from our Cruise. The tour was perfect with customized stops to allow us to drop off 2 older ladies that weren't up for the rainforest tour. We made special stops to see monkeys, get fresh bananas and take in more local flavor.... More

An Unforgettable Amazing Day with Oscar Brown My wife, son and I went on our first cruise and it was to stop at the port in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. This stop was one of the main reasons for this particular cruise as my son always wanted to see monkeys and sloths, in the wild, and up close. We never... More

Oscar was outside the port gates and apparently was not booked and we listened to him and took him up on his offer to take us to a few places. First stop was zip lining and we soon learned that he knows everyone. He even stopped at a roadside vendor and bought the most amazing pork tamales we have ever... More

We booked with Oscar Brown online before our cruise and every detail was perfect. Every question answered promptly, tour guide waiting at the pier and a great itinerary. We selected Tour 3-2, a combination of Veragua Rainforest with aerial tram and Tortuguero Canal. That tour cost $105 per person (eight of us in all) compared to the exact same Princess... More

We booked Oscar Brown tour #4 for a day tour while our cruise ship was in port. We were very happy with our tour, but the vehicle left a bit to be desired as it was too crowded for four day trippers and the driver. The middle rear seat was most uncomfortable and very crowded in the back. The vehicle... More

My wife and I contracted with Oscar Brown Tours before we ever left the States. We had arranged a quite ambitious listing of Costa Rican sites and activities for the short time we were ashore. Everything had been worked out in advance by email. We arrived by Carnival Triumph on March 7, 2015. Mr. Brown was waiting for us in... More

Group of 6 people in their 40s from Carnival Pride cruise ship in March 2015 toured Jaguar center and canal with Oscar Brown. Jaguar center was informative and enjoyable and the canal ride was relaxing, the young man Willie was very pleasant/competent captain of our small boat. Oscar Brown himself while a nice guy, drives like a maniac. Two of... More

As part of our Panama Canal cruise aboard the Island Princess in Jan 2015, we spent the day in Limon, Costa Rica. I booked Oscar Brown's Tour # 1 (banana plantation and Tortuguero canal) on the internet with no problems. Oscar was there outside the gate with his sign. He signaled our guide Lorenzo and we were off in Lorenzo's... More
