Oscar tailored a day tour to the Jaguar Rescue center and the canal cruise. Unexpected bonuses were lunch at a very nice seaside restaurant and a hilltop view of the city. At no time did we see him pay for our attractions, and yet we were immediately ushered onto a canal boat and into the Jaguar center. This showed us... More

My wife and I recently toured Puerto Limon, Costa Rica, and surrounding area with an Oscar Brown tour. This was an intimate one-on-one tour. We were chauffeured by Mr. Brown as he showed us many interesting sites and places. We stopped at a roadside market where we sampled several locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as sugar cane. He... More

Responsive via emails for cruise with all questions answered. Enjoyed the canopy, boat tour, lunch, beach stop and high point above the city. Very informative on the tour with Oscar. Vendor is outside the port gate away from all the hustle and bustle of other vendors.

Oscar, his son & brother-in-law were absolutely wonderful!! So hospitable, really explained alot about the area. He had no time schedule so when we wanted to stop for lunch on the beach he accommodated us. 2 of the women in our group went on the canopy tour. They had a fantastic time doing the zip line. We visited quite a... More

I am rating this as a four star tour - because we DID have an enjoyable day that added to great memories BUT I would not take this tour again. I'll start on a positive note, Oscar was there waiting with his sign right on time, outside the gates as agreed. A welcome sight indeed when you are inundated with... More

My husband and I booked a tour with Oscar Brown on March 10, for a shore excursion in Puerto Limon when our ship Celebrity Equinox was in port. We could have booked a tour with Celebrity, but I think it is important to support smaller tour businesses, and trusty Tripadvisor led me to Oscar Brown Tours! Our emails with Carol... More

Our group of 34 booked a tour with Oscar when our Cruise Ship (Equinox) docked in Colon. We visited a local farm and stand with various fruits and plants, visited a banana plantation and then boarded boats for a 60-min ride on the Tortuguera Canals observing birds, monkeys, sloths, etc. Then we had a delicious lunch at Bonita Beach with...

While on a cruise in Central America, we decided to select something private and quiet - nothing like the large tour buses loaded with 100's of cruisers. Oscar Brown offered private cars with drivers - we could go anywhere we wanted! Our driver was Dexter (Oscar Brown's nephew). His English was excellent and he was very informative about his country.... More
