We were a group of 8 - 3 kids from 9 to 16 in age and adults from 40 to 70; we all had a great day! We booked with Luis after reading the information on Trip Advisor and what a great surprise! His team took us to eat fresh fruits (with teenage boys - this "stop" alone took over an hour...it was so good!!!!). We then went to a banana plantation (from Doyle) - where our kids were so impressed to see the step-by-step process of packaging (and cleaning) bananas! The highlight of the banana plantation was when the workers found the frogs on the bananas (same color so hard to see) and would make a point to show them to the kids! It was great! The mangroves cruise was also extremely nice! From sloths to howler monkeys, crocodiles and birds, we had a very nice hour cruising. Being alone on our tour; we deviated a bit to take the time to swim in the waves and enjoy the beach for a while before sitting down for a great meal while overlooking the city! Our guides were fun and made us feel "this was our day" in Limon - we never felt on a "time schedule"; I would recommend Tortuguero Wildlife Tour to everyone! It was fantastic!

After reading reviews on trip advisor about Tortuguero Wildlife Tours I made contact with Luis on the Internet. We arranged a tour and were met promptly at 10 a.m. for our day of touring. Luis took us to a fruit stand where we sampled fruit and coconut water. The mango was the best we had ever had!! From there we went to the Del Monte banana plantation. Along the way Luis stopped to show us beautiful birds that were flying into their nests in the trees. After our tour of the banana plantation we went for a canal ride with Fernando and he showed us crocodiles, sloths, baby bats, howler monkeys and many other interesting animals. it was amazing. Luis then took us to a beach where we enjoyed a cool beer. Then on to Limon to overlook the city and a tour of downtown Limon. It was an amazing day and Luis was a wonderful guide!!! We also met William Guerrero who is the manager of Tortuguero Wildlife Tours. I would highly recommend Luis and the team of Tortuguero Wildlife Tours. We had a wonderful day!!

We met up with William (Tuca) in Moin. He has just explained everything to us and introduced us to the captain Fernando. Then off we went. Fernado had a good eye and gave us all sorts of things already seen from a distance, so we can see it even though we were close enough. It was absolutely genieal with Him. We saw so many different animals. Fernando is a very nice and courteous boat operator who speaks a little english. We will keep this canal tour in a very good reminder.

We used Tortuguero Wild Life tour when we had a port of call in Puerto Limon when we took Panama Canal cruise. I contacted to the company from their website before our cruise because I wanted to visit Cahuita National Park that our cruise ship did not have an excursion to there. The company manager and owner William Guerreo emailed me back and arranged a tour for us including Cahuita National Park and Tortuguero Canal. This was the first time that we used a local tour company instead of cruise organized excursions, and we did not know what we would experience. When we arrived to Puerto Limon port gate to meet our drive 10 minute early, he was already there waiting for us. We were surprised that it is a private tour for only us with a 4 wheel-drive taxi. Our friendly drive, Manuel, spoke English very well, toured us Puerto Limon first, and then took us for Tortuguero Canal tour with another couple. After 1 hour Tortuguero Canal tour, Manuel took tow of us to Cahuita National Park. End of the tour, I would like to try Costa Rica local food. Manuel took us to Lighthouse Restaurant to eat, and over look the whole city of Puerto Limon. The food was excellent. We were so thankful the wonderful time that Tortuguero Wild Life tour gave us. We saw so many wild animals from countless beautiful birds to monkeys and a sloth, learned the history of the city and culture, and local plans. The price was reasonable, similar to cruise excursions, but better service, move much fast, see more and experience more, more suitable for individual needs.

We found this tour co. on tripadvisor and was not disappointed. We talked to William (nickname TUCA) (pronounced Tooka) and we planned a whole day of what we wanted to do. We met Manuel holding a sign with our name on it and he was wonderful. He took us to the Tortugera Canals where we spent 1 1/2 hrs. on a small private boat with a Captain who pointed out all kinds of wildlife, sloths, monkeys, a "Jesus Christ Lizard" and many bird species. Next, we were off to the "Jaguar Rescue Center" that was incredible. look at their website Jaguarrescue.com they help injured, orphaned baby animals, etc. and then we stopped in Cahuita National Park, a beautiful coastline area with lots of monkeys. Just watch out for your backpacks, they like to go through them if you leave them unattended. Manuel was great and full of fun and knowledge. A joy to spend the day with in beautiful Costa Rica. The whole day cost the both of us $200. and it was well worth it! Thank You Tortuguero Wildlife Tour , Manuel and Tuca.
My husband and I were off the cruise ship Celebrity Equinox for just the day and it was a life time experience. Well worth it. I highly recommend this company.
