My girlfriend and I took the Tortuguero Wildlife Tour from Puerto Limon to Parque Nacional Tortuguero last month and it was a great experience. William Guerrero answered my international call to help plan my arrival, and sent a shuttle service to the hotel we stayed in when we arrived to Puerto Limon. All of the hotels in the área knew William, and also helped us call him when we arrived. The tour was full of wildlife, with a friendly tour-leader giving a decent explanation of the animals that we encountered. The boat was clean and comfortable. I would definitely recomend taking the Tortuguero Wildlife Tour when making the trip to the National Park.

Being on a cruise we did not want to book an arrangement organized by the cruise company. We choose Tortuguero Wild Life Tour by William Guerrero A. (TUCA) www.tortugero-wildlife.com and had a great excursion watching wildlife such as leguan, anhinga birds, 3 different types of monkeys, crocodils etc. all from the boat. Our driver had an excellent eye and discovered the animals on shore. We were glad to be in a small boat at the price was USD 40.- per person for about 3-4 hours. You need to take a taxi for about 15 minutes from the curise harbour to the starting point of the tour.

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.
