Went to tortugero from San Jose. Left at 6am. On the road for about three hours, kind of a chintzy breakfast(only 3 items allowed) got on the boat after a jarring 16 k on dirt road to a bar that you had to pay 1 dollar to use the bathroom. Get on a boat to drop people off at various... More

We got the "express" service from Tortuguero to San Jose. Firstly, the boat was 90 mins late leaving Tortugeuro and there was no contact from Jungle Toms despite having my email address and phone number to "contact you if there is a problem". When the boat eventually arrived it was a 14 seater in which they squeezed 16 of us.... More

We were just in Costa Rica a few days ago and this tour was one of the excursions that I was most excited for, mostly because it was going to be an overnight tour where our resort is literally in the rain forest, accessible only by boat. The tour guide was at our hotel on time and we departed from... More

This tour was so great!! It was the most inexpensive trip we found but we definitely got more than we paid for! Our hotel lodge was so beautiful and quaint. The food was all provided and amazing. Our tour guide Kevin helped us every step of the way. We always knew where and when we were supposed to be. The... More

When it comes to being an expert in Tortuguero National Park tours, Jungle Tom Safaris has definitely made it an amazing and magical experience. They took care the otherwise time-consuming planning of transportation, making it totally seamless from pickup to all the connections. While they planned for many of the activities, there was free time to rest by the pool... More

While in Costa Rica the beginning of May we booked transportation to Tortuguero with Tom. Little did we know that it was a guided ride from San Jose to the boat landing and then a guided river boat tour to Tortuguero. It was amazing. Tom filled us in on a multitude of information concerning Costa Rica in general as well... More

My mom and I went with Jungle Tom's in March and had a fantastic time! Our bus broke down on the way, but our guide Roselyn, was amazing and took us on an impromptu tour down a road nearby where the van stopped. We saw tucans and a farmer cracked open some coconuts for us, making it like a fun... More

We really enjoyed this tour but it did lose some points for not being as service oriented as we would have liked. We did the day tour from San Jose to Tortuguero. Our guide Roselyn picked us up at the hotel around 5:55am. She was very informative and told us many interesting facts about Costa Rica and the things we... More

The "Tortuguero 2 Days - 1 Night / Standard Package" was a highlight of our recent Costa Rica vacation. Prompt pickup, the benefit of Tomas insite on all things Costarican (and otherwise!), unique accommodation at Evergreen Lodge, great local guide (Kevin) and outstanding value!
