We arranged to do Tour # 4. Jaguar Rescue Center & #1 (Tortuguero Canal) tour (Combine tour). We had excellent communication with Oscar's Sister, Carol. Oscar met us at the port on time. It was just the two of us. He used his taxi which was clean and air conditioned. Carol called and I spoke with her to confirm all was well.
We first drove to the Jaguar Rescus Center. Oscar pointed out a lot of things to us along the way. He stopped to pick up some beef and we also stopped at a friend's hotel along the way. The Rescus center opens at a certain time so Oscar was making sure we got there without too much of a wait.
The Rescue Center was fantastic and one of the highlites of out trip. When the tour ended, Oscar was waiting for us with some freshly cooked beef and onions. Nice treat. He then stoppped to get us cold water and turned on the air conditioning for our comfort.
We then drove to the Tortuguero Canal, stopping along the way to look at a banana plantation.
He uses one of the smaller Canal boat companies, but we had a small boat with an excellent young guide who did his best to find us as much wildlife as possible, even apologizing that he couldn't find any crocodiles.
After that, Oscar took us to a local restaurant on the beach where we had our lunch with a beer. It was very good and we even found that it had free wi-fi, so we could catch up on our emails.
Oscar then drove us to the highest point in Limon for some fantastic views and then back to the port. He gave us some advice on shopping, and then we were done.
Tour lasted about seven hours and it was well worth the price.
Oscar was friendly and attentive.
Overall, an excellent tour and I would highly recommend him.
