      Total Tortuguero
      We did the Tortuguero all in one tour. We saw amazing animals on the canoe and walking tour through the jungle. Celimo, our guide, was so knowledgeable and passionate about animal conservation. An incredible guide all around. And the highlight was the turtle nesting. Clearly a company that takes nature and animal preservation seriously. Highly recommended!!

      Fabulous canoe tour
      Jordan was our tour guide- fabulous! Knows a lot about the area, great at spotting animals and extremely helpful in positioning the canoe so we could get the best view. Took us down a small canal as per our request and managed the canoe brilliantly.

      The place to be in Tortuguero
      Really the place to be in Tortuguero thanks to the kindness of Emmanuel and the help of Jordan who can drive you around by canoe only by hands ! He gave us good indications to go to eat and to prepare the way back to La Pavona ! We spent very nice time in Tortuguero. Thank you

      A great night hike in Tortuguero
      We had Celimo as our guide. Excellent and very knowledgeable. It’s clear he loves his job as he was so excited to show us all the animals

      We had an amazing time with them! Celino was super patient, respectful with the nature and wildlife. He explained us a lot of interesting things and we saw many animals . We are very happy to have share this experience with him and highly recommend to navigate with an electrical motor. The team was amazing! Bairo the guy who is in charge of the mechanical things, he was nice too! Alvaro&Laia

      We booked two tours with them: a kayak tour in Tortuguero and a day walk in the park. Both were guided by Celimo, a special and very passionate guide, who was very knowledgable and fun. He gave us a full experience of the area and made our experience worthwhile. We can only recommend Celimo for his attitude and open-mindedness, and Tortuguero Adventures for their professionalism and high quality service. Federica y Alarico

      Fantastic Experience with Cèlimo
      We did a canoe tour and nightwalk Tour with Cèlimo and he is a fantastic and very sympathic guide with a deep knowledge about the nature and Wildlife. He showed us many animals we would have missed and explained everything very well. We can only recommend the tours with him and would love to come back and enjoy this paradise again. Thank you, Cèlimo!

      Traditional Fishing at Sunrise
      This company was great and provided some unique tour options aside from the typical canoe and kayak tours. We didn’t like the pressure immediately upon arrival by our accommodation to sign up for one of their tours so we decided to opt out. We were walking through Tortuguero in the evening and came across this company. Emmanuel was inside and eventually arranged a traditional fishing tour for us. He was great to deal with and actually listened to what our interests were instead of trying to force a tour onto us. We had a great time on the tour and enjoyed that we were the only ones out there so it was a peaceful and fun morning. ‘Aliguetta’, the fisherman, was friendly and knowledgeable. My partner caught several fish. The ones that we could not keep were put back in the water. Because of the early morning departure they provided coffee and cookies which was needed. Overall a great experience :)

      Magical heavenly and quiet canoe trip
      They found a guide so quickly to fit in with our day. Our guide took us to 'His Home' and 'His Office' and my 'Heaven'. The electric motor canoe was so quiet we travelled in silence through such tiny water ways...it was magical. Thanks to everyone who arranged it, kitted out the canoe and took us on this magical wildlife journey.

      Perfect trip
      Nice and friendly stuff. We sow a lot of animals like anteater, caymans, monkeys, a lot of birds. Electric boats was the best choice 😉👍

      Excellent guiding
      Excellent couple of trips with Celimo. A very engaging & super friendly knowledgeable guide. We saw lots of an& Celimo went out of his way to find the animals & explained everything we needed to know. Buy your activities from Emanuel at the Tortuguera adventures office located on the way to the park. To get there turn right out of the boat arrivals & head to the park. Also stay in one of their excellent rooms, with a great view of the lagoon if you can.

    Amazing experience with Celimo, despite the pouring rain it was a great atmosphere to be in. A particular highlight was hearing the loud howls of the howler monkeys as we kayaked through the forest in a downpour. Celimo was great throughout, very enthusiastic in showing us his country’s wildlife

    Guide Erik.

    Took us on an amazing 3 hour plus tour. No rush only pura vida.
    Taking up close wit the wild life. We saw toukans, Cayman with baby's numerous birds and butterflies.
    Have the electric engine was amazing as some canals are not allowed for motor boards this was the perfect company for us.
    Just walked over after arriving on the island and made reservations for the next day. Instead of the hotel calling g "their guy" this felt lot more real.

    Exactly in the moment when we went on the water it started to rain. It made the tour more adventurous and very special :)
    The good thing was, that you could paddle by yourself. we paddled in a very good pace and had enough time to watch animals. we were 5 people and the tourguide, which was perfect.
    Deyber, our tourguide, who is very experienced, humorous, open minded and friendly, knows so many things about this place and the animals.
    He could show us many birds, aligator, howler monkeys and much more.
    He guided us through narrow canals and like this you could feel this peaceful atmosphere of the rainforest.
    the tour as itself is already amazing, but Deyber made it to a even better experience because he is really passionated and motivated and likes to share his knowledge with the tourists. you can feel that he loves, what he is doing.

    We did an early morning kayaking tour and 10pm turtle nesting tour with Celimo. We all LOVED every minute, even the downpour during the kayaking! Seeing the turtles lay their eggs was a once in a lifetime magic moment for us. Celimo is the best tour guide EVER! Passionate and caring about all the wildlife, vast knowledge and details about the animals. We learned so much! Thank you! We know that bats are Celimo's favourite animals, just to let him know that we visited the bat sanctuary in Monteverde. Beautiful creatures!

    The kayak is probably the best option for exploring the park. Adventure Tours is comfortable and accommodating. Andres was very knowledgeable and informative concerning the wildlife, and the country. He could spot every animal as if it were second nature to him. I completely enjoyed my tour, and highly recommend them for your adventure!

    After we changed our mind in the last minute, we arranged all of our activities and the accommodation with this company given their location, facilities and expertise supported for their reviews in TA.

    Regarding the accommodation, well... you need to come and see it!!! The room was simply fantastic, with a modern touch, nice contrast of colors, very spacious and clean and with touches of a four stars hotel.

    The turtles tour is a must if you visit Tortuguero at this stage of the year. The experience was well organised and fulfilled our expectations.

    Finally, the kayaking with Tony was an exciting experience were we where able to see the species living in their own habitat. For all of us on our own would be very difficult to see these species, and as I could observe, for Tony was not a big deal to spot them.

    Special thanks to Tony "The Tiger" who has demonstrated to be a valuable member of this team of professionals. And of course, thank you all of you for this memorable experience.

    Rented a kayak for a few hours and everything worked well, with super friendly staff. If you’re looking to explore the canals on your own and enjoy the nature, book a kayak here. I did so because I was too lazy to get up for the guided tour at 6 AM, but I’m sure this would be even better than exploring by yourself

    We did the Kajak tour and started at 06:00am to see more of the wildlife. The tour was really interesting and our guide was very helpful and he spotted many animals like sloths, kaymans, a lot of birds, …
    After the guided tour we had the chance to stay longer with the Kajak and we visited the national park on our own.
    In total it was worth it and we enjoyed the tour with the team! After the tour we got a lot of important information by Issac. It was a great stay in Tortuguero and it will not be the last time we visit this wonderful place!
