Limon Shore Excursion Small Group Private Tour with Sloth Sanctuary and Tortuguero

1 review
Discover the natural and cultural highlights of Costa Rica's Caribbean side with a guided half-day shore excursion from Limon. Explore local shops and learn about the importance of this busy trading port on a city tour, and get an up-close look at one of Costa Rica's most famous exports with a visit to a banana plantation. There’s plenty of time to connect with the country’s famous biodiversity too, with a visit to a sanctuary for rescued sloths and a canoe cruise down the tropical Tortuguero Canal.

Visited while on a cruise. Absolutely beautiful. Wish we had more time to spend here. Definitely want to come back. We saw sloths, monkeys, racoons and such. Guides were great and there were places to sit along the way if someone needed to rest or if you just wanted to sit and enjoy things for awhile.

As soon as you arrive, there are many local guides near the entrance and for the relatively small amount they charge, I’d recommend hiring one to get the most out of your excursion. Our guide, Neesha, was lovely and pointed out various animals we for sure would have missed otherwise. She was also able to tell us what plants locals use for various purposes. She stayed with us about half an hour and it took us about an hour total to get to the far point of the park. There the monkeys are abundant due to the rest area, where snacks are easily stolen from tourists if they’re not careful haha Even though we got caught in the rain, it was still a highlight of our trip and would recommend to anyone wanting to experience the natural beauty of the area!

What a beautiful place! We saw so much wildlife with the help of Timothy McGillivrey, an experienced and enthusiastic guide from Jahriels Ecotours. Would highly recommend!

We access the park for a variety of reasons during our stay in Cahuita. It is an easy park to walk and enjoy the beauty of this area as well as to see monkeys, sloths and snack-craving racoons! We enjoyed a couple kilometres down the beach every day to find a cosy spot on the beach with sun and shade along with the calmer waters for swimming. The only downside is that the rangers start flushing people off the far end of the beach between 3:30 and 4:00 pm even though the park doesn't close until 5:00 pm.

1. Easiest entrance is via the Kelly Creek ranger station and walk along the coastal path up to Punta Cahuita. It’s possible to carry on and walk around the peninsula to Peurto Vargas ranger station or, you could enter via here. 2. If your aim is to see wildlife then take a guide. Yes, you can walk though on your own but you won’t spot much and like many people we saw, you’ll just walk past many animals and reptiles, so don’t skimp on hiring a guide. Avoid going in a large group of more than 4 people if you can as you’ll see and hear much more. We had a guide through Cahuita Tours (+506 2755-0000), and would recommend them. 3. Shorts and T shirt are fine. Trainers or even better trainer sandals are good but you could even wear flip flops. Walking shoes are not necessary as the paths are good. However, if you want to go swimming then I recommend you take beach shoes because the sand gives way to broken shell and coral and unless you have soles like an elephant, you’ll find it very uncomfortable to walk over! This is one thing we weren’t told and when we tried to go for a swim off the beach near Punta Cahuita ( which is much quieter than Playa Blanca that gets very busy), we couldn’t do it due to the sharp broken coral, which kind of spoiled our visit a bit! 4. If you walk slowly and take time to look you will see quite a bit. Please don’t do what we saw some idiots doing and run along the path! It isn’t a running track and this just frightens the wildlife away.
