Shore Excursion: Rio Dulce and Hot Springs Tour with Visit to the Children's School
Rather than just ticking off historical sights, gain insight into local culture during a shore excursion to Rio Dulce and a children’s school from Santo Tomas de Castilla. Ideal for first-time visitors with limited time, this tour combines nature, culture, and history: you’ll explore Rio Dulce Canyon by boat, interact with locals at a school; and take a walking tour of the city. Plus, port pickup and drop-off are included.

This was an excellent tour. Maria did a great job as our guide, the River was beautiful, lunch was very good. The only downside was that there was a wait for boats and we were an hour late leaving the port area.
