This was a great tour! They picked us up right outside of the terminal then we headed to our first stop at a local fruit stand. We learned a lot about local fruits and tasted some as well. Next stop was a banana plantation. On our way to the canal tour, we stopped to see several howler monkeys in the trees. The canal tour was full of multiple types of wild life including sloths, iguanas, birds, crocodiles, etc. We stopped at a local beach and had a beer then headed to our final stop at the highest point in the city. The view was amazing. They dropped us outside the pier at the end and we walked through the shops at the port. Highly recommend this one! The tour company was amazing!

We had a lovely day on this tour. It was very organized. They were right outside the main gates of the port. The van we were in was spotless and pretty new. They kept it nice and cool in the van. Federico was a very knowledgeable tour guide and made us laugh all day. He was self-conscious about his English but shouldn't be. Because his English is great! By the end of the day, we felt like friends. It was a laid back tour. Since it's a smaller group, he gives the group choices on the length of time at some of the stops. It's tours like this that are why we usually book independent of the cruise lines. Small groups! The boat ride was a treat. The driver could see a sloth from a mile away in the van AND on the boat. We definitely got our fill of sloths that day. It was sort of cool that they brought us to a grocery store by the port to see how the locals shop. I was surprised at how similar it was to our grocery stores in America. And it was also a great place at the end of the tour to buy local coffee or other local foods for a better price than a souvenir shop! If you are going to Limon, and want to see the main highlights, I would highly recommend!

We had the pleasure of doing a tour last week with Relax Day Tours. Federico and Jorge were amazing!! Federico was so personable and spoke English very well. He was excellent at explaining animal habits, the culture of Costa Rica, and farming techniques and information. He was there at the dock exactly where he said he would be, holding a sign. His directions for us to follow to find him were perfect. Jorge was great at finding wildlife on the sides of the road and also while in the canal. The first thing I told Federico when we got in the van was that I really wanted to see a sloth. Well, they made that dream come true! I saw several. It was truly amazing to see them in person. They were high in the trees and most were sleeping, but we were lucky enough to discover one in the canals that was crawling around in the tree! The Veragua Rainforest was breathtaking. FYI, your Relax Day guides do not accompany you into the rainforest. You are handed off to the guides that work for the rainforest and they will accompany you through the area. But, Federico walked with us to the entrance, introduced and handed us off to our guide there, and he was right there waiting at the exit as we left. So much beauty at the rainforest, as well as many different types of small wildlife. In the Tortuguero Canal, we took Federico's boat and found iguanas, many bird species, sloths, and even a howler monkey or two. Again, Jorge was great at spotting things and Federico was great at making sure we got up close to see the animals and get some photos. Not only did we go to the rainforest and the canals, but we did a little mini city tour, and he took us to a restaurant up on the hill overlooking the bay and the ship. Amazing photo op there. We relaxed and enjoyed a beverage, and then he also stopped at a supermarket in town where we could stock up on a few things to take back with us on the ship. Oh, and we also stopped for a few minutes at the beach to enjoy the beauty. We could have stayed longer, but we just wanted to get a quick picture. Federico never once made us feel rushed during our day with him, and he was eager and happy to tailor anything we wanted. This excursion was the highlight of our 17 days on the seas. I cannot recommend this tour company enough. The next time we find ourselves in Puerto Limon we will definitely contact Relax Day Tours again to do a different excursion with them. Book a tour, you won't be sorry!

If Limon, Costa Rica is a port that your cruise ship visits, you have no reason to book any other shore excursion than the one offered by Relax Day Tours. I booked their Full Day Tour to Cahuita, a few days before boarding the Emerald Princess after considering the shore excursions offered by Princess Cruise Lines. The cruise ship offerings were mostly twice the price and half the itinerary plus I would be dealing with at least 40 other cruisers and their wants and needs. Nine of us (other folks we met on the cruise ship who wanted to join my wife and me once they heard us talk about this excursion) were picked up just outside the port gates by Frederico, our tour guide and Eric the driver. These two are the owners of the business and work extremely well as a team. Frederico speaks great English and Eric can spot wildlife better than anyone I have ever met. Our trip included: a tour of the small town of Limon; a trip in the company's own private, covered boat on the local canal for sightseeing of wildlife (monkeys, sloths, birds and water fowl plus various lizards , snakes and a Cayman alligator); a stop over at a fruit stand where Frederico not only showed us many live plants and trees but explained the growing and harvesting process for bananas, pineapples, papaya, various melons, cashews and more - we also tasted samples and some of us purchased fruit to take back to the ship. Then on our way to the state park, we asked about picking up a quick lunch so they stopped by a roadside "soda" restaurant for a local Costa Rican lunch. We then arrived at Cahuita State Park where we walked the trail through the coastal forest for more wildlife and plant sightings. The trail parallels a beautiful beach and when we stopped walking, about half of our group stepped into the warm Caribbean waters. We then started driving back towards the cruise ship but not before making one last stop at the local grocery store to purchase Costa Rican coffee, at a very reasonable price, as well as some snacks for the rest of our cruise. All of us had a memorable day with Relax Day Tours. One last comment - Frederico responded to my emails almost immediately which was comforting as we kept adding people to our party.

Great day with Rupert and George! Happy and informative. Communication is easy with Frederico. Price reasonable considering we got our own driver, air conditioned van and guide for the day. Both Rupert and George had eagle eyes for all animals. Amazing that we got our own boat for the canals which gave us the freedom to walk around the boat and get different views. Fruit stand was very good but I expected more variety of fruits. Got to have some coffee and “Pattys” as well. Cahuita NP is nice and got to see more animals. Quite busy but we were there on a Saturday. Got to have a bite at the restaurant just outside of the NP. Had a great day!
