Meet your guide on arrival at Limon cruise port and head straight to the Tortuguero Canal. Hop aboard a traditional covered boat and set out on a scenic cruise along the Tortuguero Canal, gliding through the lush rainforest of the Tortuguero National Park.

Along the way, learn more about the region’s unique ecosystem and look out for wildlife including toucans, bats, iguanas, and sloths. If you’re lucky, you’ll have chance to see gigantic crocodiles and howler monkeys swinging from the trees.

After the cruise, hop back on the bus for a short transfer to Brisas de la Jungla, another wildlife haven along Limon’s coast. On arrival, follow your guide on a short half-mile (1km) nature trail, where you’ll hopefully get chance to see Costa Rica’s famous red dart frog or spy adorable three-toed sloths hanging from the tree branches. The forest is also renowned for its beautiful flowers, including wild epiphytes, orchids and bromeliads, and diverse bird life including toucans, oropendola, tanagers, hummingbirds, kiskadees, and many more exotic species.

At the end of the tour, return to Limon, where you’ll be dropped back at the port in time for your cruise departure.

Guide was informative and enthusiastic on hike and boat tour. Smaller and fewer reptiles than the ones we saw on Pacific coast a couple of years ago. Perhaps if there was a speed limit on the river, more animals would be inclined to hang around the river banks. A nice tour if you've never travelled before but expensive based on previous tours

The tour consisted of a 1 hour boat ride, 1 mile hike in the rainforrest and a visit to the banana plantation. We really booked this tour for the banana plantation as we were on the boat and visited a rainforest the day prior. But, low and behold, while on the bus, the guide told us that Dole banana plantation was not open. He pulled over on the side of the road, picked a banana and did a show and tell in the bus......I am convinced that they knew ahead of time that the itinerary was not going to be honored, they should have let people know so that we would have had the option of booking another tour. This was the only day we were in Costa Rica, and I would have liked to have seen more than the howler monkeys and ants.....ALSO, at the end of five hours, we were hoping to return to the ship...tired, grimey, but the guide needed to take us to a restaurant. This was the last stop, and we all could have eaten lunch for free at the ship, but it seemed as though he promised the restaurant to bring the group......It was very uncalled for, especially since lunch was not included in the tour.....The tour itself started out great....guide was knowledgeable and funny, but it got progressively worse as the day went on.....I would ask alot of questions before you book with this company again.
