We had a wonderful time on Jungle Tom Safaris. We loved our guide - first Luis and then Kevin through the Evergreen Lodge. The Evergreen lodge was pretty nice. Our drive from San Jose to Tortuguero was nice because we stopped for a great breakfast and a couple sloth sightings. My only complaint was that when we were dropped off... More

I did not book directly with Jungle Tom's Safari but was outsourced by Caribe Shuttles. The trip was from Tortuguero to San Jose. The boat ride was fine, when we arrived it was a little chaotic and you had to push to be left on the bus even though your name was on the list. They had too many people... More

Do NOT take one day tour with Jungle Tom Safari. One day tour is overpriced for the services offered. We had the terrible driver who was about to do 2 head on collisions. The tour guide(Luis) started the tour with humor but he had no knowledge on wildlife. When asked if he can help us spot the wildlife he mentioned... More

We took a two day tour to Tortguero and had a lot of fun. It's easy if you do not know the area well and you don't want to drive around the country, especially during the rainy season.

I don't write reviews, but I'm making an exception. I'd like to compliment my guides from Jungle Tom's Safaris. Kevin and German did an exceptional job, making our group's visit a memorable one. Both of them were professional, informative and entertaining. Visiting Tortugero with them was well worth my while. Thank You, Mark Florida

Easy, hassle free way to get to Tortuguero. Our driver, Luis, was knowledgeable and accommodating. Had a really fun trip there, even seeing a sloth along the way. It is well worth the $45, would book with them again any day!

We took the “Tortugeuro One Day Tour” as one of many tours and this was the worst tour I have ever been on! The Driver/ tour guide was 80% of the problem. First he arrived late, used the smallest most uncomfortable van for 10 people, and made many illegal stops paired with texting and driving/personal phone calls. We would drive... More

We booked the one night trip to Tortuguero. The tour was well organized, on time. Luis, our guide on the drive was helpful. Especially on the way back, when we had no where booked. He found us a hotel near the SanCarlos bus station as we wanted, but didn't just leave us there,he came with us, made sure they had... More

Jungle Tom picked us up in San Jose to take us to Tortuguero. The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the animals / plants we saw on the way. Included in the price ($45) was a Tico breakfast and mini safari on the way to Tortuguero. We saw monkeys and plenty colourful birds and caiman. Then on arrival they... More

A nice break from the metro areas. A more beautiful sight than Manuel Antonio. Unexpectedly at our time of year, we still saw a turtle. Our guide knew everything and could find everything. He even knew exactly when it would rain, and made sure we were all in the boat at those times. Nature is wonderful here.
