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.

I booked this tour for only $17 since I needed to get to to Tortuguero from San Jose. I had no idea this was a tour (I thought it was just transportation). Our guide Kevin was knowledgeable and showed us many of the animals and plants along the way while we were on the shuttle and also during the boat... More

Thank goodness for Kevin in Tortuguero who was knowledgable and nice. Other than that the transfers were in old an old shuttle that could barely make it up the mountain and was decidedly dangerous at night in the rain with little concern for passenger comfort. This operation seems to have become lazy. There are alternatives.

We visited Tortuguero in the "off season". Our plan was to fly to Tortuguero and then shuttle back to San Jose with Jungle Tom. We thought we made the arrangements a few weeks ahead but while we were in Costa Rica we received word that the cheaper direct shuttle (boat and bus) was not available but there was a trip... More

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.
