Tortuguero Canals Including Playa Bonita and Puerto Limon Highlights
From $55.00
Experience Puerto Limon’s highlights—from the biodiverse Tortuguero Canals to the calm Playa Bonita—in as little as four hours on this shore excursion. Since you won’t have to worry about arranging transportation between destinations, you can relax while you hear informative commentary from your guide about Puerto Limon’s most popular attractions.
What to Expect
The tour begins as soon as you step off your cruise ship and your guide meets you with a sign. After taking a brief tour of the city and snapping photos from a scenic vista point, board an air-conditioned vehicle and head to the Tortuguero Canals for a 1-hour boat ride featuring the area’s many plants and animals.
Continue to a fruit stand and banana plantation to learn about some of Costa Rica’s biggest exports and sample fruits unique to tropical environments. Then, relax by the shore of Playa Bonita with free time to swim, sunbathe, or order fresh seafood from one of the beachfront restaurants.
The tour concludes with a brief stop at a supermarket to shop for goods like local coffee before dropping you off at the port.

The canal was good, the boat conductor was very professional.

運河は良かったです。プエルトリモン自体、小さな場所ですから見る箇所は限られています。運河のコンダクターはとても上手でした。現地の港の目の前の店で食べれた生のココア(ココアの実から)が本当に美味しかった。お土産屋さんに連れて行かれたのですが、そこでの価格が港内での各店(ベンダーが集まってる)場所より高かったのに頭を傾げましたが、商品によるのでしょう。足の悪い人でもまあ行けますが、運河の船に乗るときに階段が数段を上下しなくてはなりません。This tour's highlight was the canal to us. The boat conductor was really great at explaining where you see the iguanas, herons, birds...very peaceful. The beach was not that impressive due to weather and rough water but there is a free wifi at the restaurant...More

Yes, this tour takes around 4 hours and your cruise ship arrives at 11 am (also it has already been in Puerto Limon this season, and it arrived earlier than scheduled) and it leaves at 19:00. There's plenty of time to return... More

Yes, it is usually part of the tour, but it can be skipped if you choose to. They receive US dollars (at the official exchange rate) but you would get the change in the national currency, Costa Rican colones. You can also... More

Hello, there is hardly any walking involved. You can tell the guide about your concerns and he can cut down the walking even more. Enjoy this beautiful tour.
