Puerto Limon was a port of call during our Panama Canal cruise and we did not want to be stuck as part of a huge group on a large bus for the day. We contacted 3 tour operators (that we found on TripAdvisor) and William's replies were the quickest and he answered all of our questions to form a custom tour for the 4 of us.
We were picked up right on time, but were a little surprised to be "handed off" to Manual as our Guide for the day... and were even more surprised when the 4 of us had to squeeze into a taxi as our transportation for the day. Good thing none of us are big people... but even with that, the 3 of us in the back seat were not very comfortable, with not enough room and springs sticking into our butts.
However, Manual did a good job of showing us things such as plants and wildlife along the way. Our boat guide during our canal ride was excellent and we saw lots of wildlife.
Next we went to Cahuita, and were again a little surprised that Manual did not come in with us. However, Cahuita is very beautiful and we again saw lots of wildlife and insects.
Although it was FULL day tour, Manual seemed surprised that we wanted to stop for lunch. He did find a wonderful restaurant for us (lunch was fantastic), but this made us late to our appointment at the Sloth Sanctuary, which stressed us out.
The Sloth Sanctuary was amazing, the high-light of our day!!!
All in all, we are glad we chose Tortuguero Wildlife Tours as we did get to do everything we wanted to (and the cruise ship did not offer that). However, MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE YOU WILL GET WILL FIT ALL OF YOU COMFORTABLY!!!
