Enjoy the wildlife of Veragua Rainforest and the Tortuguero Canals in this shore excursion. Right outside the cruise port, an experienced guide will be waiting for you to start the tour in an air-conditioned vehicle.

Enjoy the Veragua Rainforest Full Tour (entrance fee NOT included) and its variety of wildlife attractions: reptile habitat, butterfly garden, frog habitats, insectarium, biological research station and the aerial tram are some of the highlights. At the Tortuguero Canals, experience a one-hour boat ride on a covered boat. Don’t miss the chance to take pictures of sloths, monkeys, iguanas, tropical birds and more biodiversity of the region.

Going back, watch most of Puerto Limon’s town from a scenic viewpoint, while your guide shares some of the history and culture of Costa Rica’s Caribbean province. You can also choose to visit a supermarket to purchase some Costa Rican coffee and other local goods at a fair price. Finally, it will be time to return to the cruise port.

Frederico was great! He was very nice and very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to help us see as much wildlife as possible and he seemed as excited as us to spot animals. We saw sloths, monkeys, iguanas and many birds. We highly recommend him! Thank You Frederico for making our experience so great!

Custom tour Cahuita, Waterfall and Chocolate Tour Excursion- full day - with pickup from hotel —— We booked this tour in advance (with Frederico) and were very happy with the guide and the driver. They were very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. They pointed various animals which it would be difficult to spot on our own. We ended going to a local restaurant that they recommended where we had a fantastic meal for a fraction of cost and were parted as friends.

We had such a great time and ended up with a private tour with Esteban. We watched the people from the ship experience the same things, only in a large group with lines and a crowded bus. We also paid less! We saw sloths and toucans. Highly recommended! Ask for Esteban. He told us so much about the local area and had a great sense of humor.

We had an Amazing tour with our guide Dani and driver. They meet us as planned just outside the cruise port with our names written on a board. Very organized. We were a group of nine. We had one in our group using a cane so the driver brought the van around. Very considerate. We travelled out of the city and as we drove our guide told us all about Limon, she was very knowledgeable. Our driver stopped to point out birds, (we had a birdwatcher in our group) , monkeys and sloths. We had a stop at a fruit stand and learned about fruits native to Puerto Rico. Our next stop was a banana plantation where we were able to get out and Dani explained the process for growing and harvesting bananas. We carried on and had an hour on the Tortuguero Canal. The boat was covered offering relief from the sun. We were able to spot alligators, different species of lizards, monkeys, sloths and many different birds. Our driver was very experienced in spotting hidden or camouflaged wildlife. On our return to the ship we stopped at a beach to dip our toes in the ocean. Next an overlook of Limon where we took group pictures and enjoyed a local beverage. The locals were very friendly at each stop. Our final stop was to a grocery store where Dani helped us with interpreting. We were so impressed with how much Dani knew in so many different fields regarding her country. We highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to Limon. Dani and the driver were very, kind, pleasant and knowledgeable! A big thumbs up!👍😁

Extremely over priced tour as many are in Costa Rica. Cahuita Park is free and many people help each other find or share animals, others seen. I believe the tour guides would should all take a tour and Lear from the Tree of Life Rescue, Rehibilation, Release Center.

You reviewed the wrong company! We are certain you did not travel with us. We checked your profile, and you claim to have been in Cahuita on March, but you also visited a lot of other places in Costa Rica (such as La Fortuna, which is far away). All of our customers during March came on cruise ships, and in fact, basically all of our customers are cruise ship passengers. You couldn't have taken our tour! It looks like you were travelling on your own by car, or that you bought a multi-day tour package from another company (we do not offer that). We do not operate this tour from Cahuita, we begin from the cruise ship terminal in Puerto Limon (over 40 km away). Also, our guides do not just tell you the names of the animals, we always try to give you plenty of information and make your tour entertaining. You can check our REAL reviews to see that we strive for excellency. Please CHECK before posting a review and making a mistake like this, as you are hurting a hard-working company in these terrible times of crisis which have already decimated our industry.
