We had booked a combo tour----tomuch discussion with the jaguar rescue center and than a canal tour. The rescue center was awesome and the people who worked there were great! The tour guide Oscar Brown was no more than a taxi driver. He didnt say much and when we finally got to the rescue center he didnt really say what... More

Oscar Brown Tours will show you a good time gone great! Oscar knows how to get around, where/when to go to the attractions and how to maximize and optimize your time in Limon. Oscar's tours are far more intimate and wayyyy cheaper than tours you book directly through the cruise lines. We had a blast with Oscar Brown Tours!

Carol was a charm to work with, very quick to respond to any and all questions. Loved her. She will tell you that if you get a certain number of people to join the group you will get a discount. We got the number needed, but no mention was ever made as to a lesser cost. I guess you need... More

Oscar. Oh boy! (He says that quite often :)) We booked a day trip with Oscar from our cruise ship as we wanted to get the most out of our time in Puerto Limon and around. Unfortunately, it was raining heavily when we were there so the walk through Cahuita National Park (which must be amazing when sunny) wasn't as... More

We booked Oscar Brown Tour's Rainforest and River Cruise (with Lunch) package and absolutely loved it. Oscar added a city tour free of charge and was the best host! He has lived in Puerto Limon his whole life and knows everything there is to know about the port and city. Book with Oscar and you won't be disappointed. By the... More

I corresponded with Carol via e-mail quite a bit before booking. She was prompt and helpful in each of her responses. Very glad I booked with her. The tour was with Oscar Brown the owner and Carol's brother. He provided great overview on our way to the attractions. He was great during our rain forest tour. On the way back... More

I booked the #3-2 Aerial tram and Canal tour online with Carol. Booking and all communications were very straightforward and Carol was very good at replying at every stage. There were six of us in our party and we had decided we wanted to be on our own so didn't use cruise critic to get others to join us, however... More
