        Excellent guide for our group of 5
        Excellent tour. Very knowledgeable and informative. So friendly and showed us what Costa Rica is really like. Price is fair and much better than a cruise ship bus trip

        An authentic experience!
        I took a private tour with Eduardo from Your Lucky Tour through the Tortuguero Canal and Cahuita National Park. It was truly an authentic experience. I was able to view Sloths, Iguanas many types of birds and even Howler monkeys in the wild. It was a beautiful day and I really enjoyed learning about all the different types of plants that grow in Costa Rica. I even enjoyed some of the Costa rican cuisine which was a nice experience. We were on our own time and I never felt rushed yet we had plenty of time to return to the ship. I highly recommend this tour!

        Tour of Tortuguero Canals and Cahuita National Park
        We were in Puerto Limón on a cruise, but I did not want to take a cruise shore excursion because they often feel overcrowded and rushed. Eduardo offered a guide and a private tour for our family (4 people) and we had a great time exploring Tortuguero Canals and Cahuita National Park. We really wanted to see a sloth, monkeys, and wildlife, and all our wishes came true. 😊 We also had a stop at a local fruit market and got to try local coffee, bananas, etc. Our guide was really nice, the van was very comfortable, we felt safe in a new country, and had plenty of time to explore and get back to the ship well ahead of its departure time. This was our first visit to Costa Rica and I look forward to coming back!

        Fantastic day with Your Lucky Tour
        Wow! Fun day with Eduardo on the Tortuguero Canal Tour & Cahuita National Park tour. I booked the tour before we boarded the cruise ship then asked others to join us - we were a small group of 8. Perfect number. Eduardo was easy to find at the port and the van was very comfortable and easy to get in and out of with a good driver. Eduardo kept an eye on the time and made sure we arrived back to port well before all aboard. We did the canal tour first. Nice comfortable boat and we saw howler monkeys, lots of birds including green herons, snowy egrets and tri-colored herons. Also saw Iguanas, Jesus lizards (runs on water), Caiman and both 2 toed and 3 toed sloths. Drove to the national park next for a short walk on a good trail with views of the beach and water and saw sloths, monkeys, iguanas and an eyelash viper snake. One on the tour decided to rest at a bench along the walk with a great beach view and the rest of us picked him up on the way back - this in an in and out walk. Eduardo was a fantastic guide - he even stopped for beer, water and sodas when we asked.

        Do Not Take the Zip Line tour with this company
        DO NOT TAKE THE ZIPLINE TOUR WITH THIS COMPANY!! Extremely dangerous. This company uses Brisas de la Jungla zip line course. Most dangerous course I’ve ever seen. One portion of the zip line goes low over a road. My wife was zip lining down, when suddenly a bus was crossing the road and my wife slammed into the bus going very fast. She sustained severe damage to her legs, hip and back. This was a totally avoidable injury. Who builds a zip line track that has the possibility to be hit by a car?!?! Your Lucky Tour did take us back to the ship immediately but we’re only concerned about getting paid while I was trying to get my wife medical care. $567 to put your life in danger. AVOID!!

        Sloths, monkeys, iguanas and wonderful guides.
        Our guides were great. It was a super humid and sticky December day, but they took us to a lot of beautiful places to see wildlife and plants we wouldn’t ever see in the wild otherwise. We got to see howler monkeys, sloths, iguanas and much more. I’d recommend the tour to anyone here for a day visit.

        Wonderful Personalized Experience
        I definitely would recommend Eduardo at Your Lucky Tour. We traveled to Puerto Limon via ship but were trying to avoid the crowded tours provided by our cruise line. We contacted several tour operators prior to our visit and selected Your Lucky Tour based on other positive reviews and the prompt responses by Eduardo to our inquiries. We did the Tortuguero Canal and Cahuita National Park tour. Both were quite interesting and we saw sloths, caiman, monkeys and lots of birds. The tour was advertised as 4-5 hours, but ours lasted longer (6-7 hours) and nothing felt rushed. Eduardo was very knowledgeable about Costa Rica and the ecosystem and was eager to share about his beautiful country. He took time to explain about bananas, chocolate, coffee, economy, foliage and wildlife and really made the trip interesting. The other thing that impressed me was the group size. We had three in our party and were the only ones in the group. We were greeted just outside the port by Eduardo, led to a 15-passenger van driven by Roberto. We had a private tour. Even on the canal, we were the only ones on the 28-passenger boat in addition to the guide/captain. If you are going to Puerto Limon and want an interesting tour, definitely give Your Lucky Tour a try.

        Wonderful tour, fantastic tour guide Eduardo!
        Eduardo Humphreys with Lucky Tour was an excellent tour guide. He took us on a great tour in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica and we also took a lovely boat ride. Eduardo is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. I would highly recommend taking a tour with his company as it is very enjoyable and you will feel safe. Eduardo made me love Costa Rica and this is my second time there!

        Limón Costa Rica canals and overview
        We took a tour with Eduardo while in port on a cruise. 4/6/2023. I arranged the tour with Eduardo via email. He was extremely responsive and timely with any questions. Our itinerary changed a month before the cruise and he was able to adjust our date without issue. He met us just outside the cruise port with a sign with our name on it. Due to it being Easter week, many places were closed but Eduardo was able to take us on the canals where we were able to see monkeys, sloths and lizards. The canal boat tour operators were great and got us up close and made sure everyone got pics etc. we then went to a plantation which was busy with other cruise tours. Eduardo got us right in and walked us around and provided us samples of fruits and cocoa. Being a small group we were able to hear and see what Eduardo had to say. Unlike the many large cruise tours where they looked bored and miserable because only the first couple people by the tour guide would be able to hear. We were then taken to a shopping area for souvenirs and we went to a lookout area to take pictures. The little restaurant for the lookout was closed due to Easter week but we pulled off the road to take pics of our cruise ship in port. Costa Rica is high crime and we felt completely safe with Eduardo and our driver. Would highly recommend Eduardo’s tours.

        Excellent Tour
        Highly Recommend Eduardo with Your Lucky Tours. He is very prompt and upfront email communications with pricing of tours. If you get more than 7 people price will be reduced and he honored that on our recent tour 7 in 1. We had 9 people on our tour. We did have to shorten our trip since Constellation cruise ship was only in port 8-4pm He made sure we saw what the group wanted to see and we were back to the ship in plenty of time to shop at the port. We did the Tortuguero Canals boat ride tour saw sloths, monkeys, flowers and other fauna. Then off to the Cahuita National Park where Eduardo walked with us into the rain forest next to the ocean pointing out different animals, again seeing sloths, howler monkeys (warning us not to stand underneath them as they will do naughty things), Jesus Christ Lizard because it walks on water, Giant Butterflies and much more. We finally stopped at a fruit stand for free samplings and shopping. Felt very safe and had a fun adventure with Lucky Day Tours-thanks Eduardo and Ruperto. Go you will not be sorry!!!!

        Not enough time
        We didn’t have Eduardo for our tour guide, not sure what that man’s name was that we did have. He was very nice and told us a lot about Costa Rica on our travels but we didn’t get the 7:1 tour we booked and the two places we did go to - canal boat tour and Cahuita - we were left on our own. At the boat ride he took us to an area and said we would get the boat here and then he was gone. We waited around and after some time another large tour group came in and were lining up to go. We had no idea if we were to go with them. Finally saw our driver and asked him and he found someone else and they did put us on that boat. Then at the park he went to the entrance with us, told us we had to pay to go in (which we had not been aware of - it was a minimum donation of $5, not a big deal but would have been nice to know ahead of time), told us to take our time and he would meet us back outside. We assumed by other reports that this was a guided tour. On the drive to the park we realized we were on different times and so had an hour less time then we thought so we walked in about 15 minutes and then went back. We had wondered why our driver had mentioned several times that the ship was late when it had actually only been about 10-15 minutes late. We had no idea when we booked the tour that our ship didn’t change to CR time but you would think the tour guides would know this? So with the traffic of three ships being in port and stories our drivers was telling us about several hour waits at one-lane bridges and accidents, etc., we got very uncomfortable. He asked if we wanted to go to a fruit stand but we thought with only a couple hours left until we had to be back on the ship we should skip it. So he took us directly back to the port area, no city tour and no view point. We did enjoy our driver and all he told us about Costa Rica on our long commute to Cahuita and back but we were pretty disappointed in the tour itself.

        Wonderful experience in Puerto Limon
        Steven was a great guide from beginning to end. He was very knowledgeable and shared historical information as well as about the vegetation. We saw some sloths in the canals, visited a mini plantation to see how coffee bean and cocoa bean trees grow as well as pineapples, herbs etc. We also had a walk ourselves in a national park and enjoyed seeing monkeys.

        Learn about the Bri Bri and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.
        We made chocolate with the Bri Bri, walked thru the Cahuita forest, ate finger banana's and fresh pineapple. What a great tour with Eduardo and Roberta. They really made the effort to give us a real inside look of Costa Rica. They were so friendly and informative. They go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy and learn about their country.

        Costa Rica Tour with Eduardo
        We had a great tour with Your Lucky Tour. Meeting Eduardo off the cruise ship was easy, then our group of 4 along with Eduardo plus Roberto driving set off on our adventure. We went to the Tortuga canals first. We saw some wildlife here including a young Sloth which we were able to stroke which was cool. We then went via the fruit stall, including a taste of Colombian coffee, to Eduardo’s cousin’s garden where we saw all kinds of wildlife, including toucans. The Cahuita National Park was beautiful and we saw all the wildlife you could hope for here - howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, sloths, a snake, a raccoon, iguanas, it was fantastic. We then headed back to town and stopped for a drink at a bar which looked out over the city and had some live music playing. All in all a great day out and I would recommend Eduardo and Your Lucky Tour!

        A Memorable Day-good and not so good
        I received an email with pick-up instructions. We were met as promised by Eduardo the guide and the driver Roberto. They took us to the canal where we boarded a boat to cruise about an hour. We saw a sleepy sloth and trees full of monkeys. We loaded back into the van. Soon it became apparent the government-owned van would not shift gears. We were burning the clutch, but Eduardo insisted we continue the tour. We went to a roadside stand, ate fruit, looked through a government owned souvenir store, then we got back on the road. Again, the van would not shift, we asked Eduardo to cancel the trip to the park. He insisted we must go. We humored him, but were very nervous about traveling so far in a vehicle that was so close to becoming disabled. The park was pretty, but members of our party were upset and just wanted to return. We arrived back in town. Each stoplight was painful as the driver could barely get the van moving again. Finally, Roberto took us to his house and put us into his personal van. That was a game changer! It soon became obvious that we were to climb the city mountain to get to the outdoor bar Red Snapper. That was the best part of our day! The view was beautiful and the drinks were good. It made the stress of the day worth the trip. We then departed to the port. Yes, we drove city streets, but didn’t have a city tour, nor narration of the history of the area. Eduardo and Roberto were very kind. The tour was not exactly as portrayed. Communication was a problem at times. We wished we had stayed closer to port with the broken van. Our anxiousness made it hard to enjoy the tour.

      Great park, but felt pretty crowded as we visited around Christmas holidays. Would be great to come here in the early morning or late afternoon. Saw sloth, Capuchin monkeys, raccoons. The beach runs parallel to the trail, could have probably taken a dip in the water, if we had more time.

      Guards check your bags at the entrance - do not bring any plastic bags, those are not allowed. You need to sign a book with your name/address and make a donation to enter the park. Restrooms available and there's a restaurant right outside the entrance (we did not eat there, though)
