Great excursion!!

Great tour with a wonderful host. He went above and beyond what you would have received from the cruise tours. Rainforest was nice but the canal cruise seeing holwer monkeys and sloths in the wild was a highlight of the trip!!

Excellent tour by Juan and Soto

This was an excellent tour. We had Juan as our guide and Soto as our driver. They were very professional & managed to get us to the rainforest before the crowds. Soto had an eagle eye for seeing sloths in trees & was an excellent driver. Juan gave us a lot of background information & was polite & kept us refreshed with cool drinks. They made sure that we were back to the ship on time & even took us to a nice photo opp on the beach. I would totally recommend these two and would use them again if in the area.

Enjoyable tour

We were met at the cruise terminal quickly and easily. We got away before all the cruise line tours and beat the bus crowds at the rainforest. The price ( once you paid the rainforest entrance fee was similar) Our guide's English was easy to understand and he gave us lots of information on the bus ride to the rainforest. The rainforest tour guide was very knowledgable but we did not see a single animal ( outside the caged snakes and frogs) along our paved walkway walk. The tram ride was enjoyable as was the hike to the waterfall. The waterfall hike sign warned there were hundreds of steps ( stairs) but in actuality it was about half that number. The canal tour guide was excellent at finding many animals ( many lizards, monkeys, birds) and our boat seemed to be one of the nicer ones. It would have been nice to have longer than the hour here because we did not get very far up the canal in the time allotted.

Thank you so much for your review. More than anything, Veragua is very interesting to learn more about the wide biodiversity of Costa Rica, but you usually don't see much wildlife, most of all you can see the animals they have in their exhibits, and, since this excursion is quite long, unfortunately we cannot take a very extended boat tour on the Tortuguero canals by time limitations that you as cruise ship visitors have. To spot wildlife, our tour to the Cahuita National Park would have been more recommended, although of course we cannot guarantee the animals, since it is wildlife in totally open areas, usually you see quite a variety of fauna. And yes, the entrance fee to Veragua is expensive. Best regards.

Our guide Rupert picked us up at the cruise ship & entertained us for about an hour on our car trip to tithe Rainforest with fascinating facts about the area. Quite expensive entrance fees to the Rainforest, as it is a private park, but it was well worth it. Eder, our guide was very knowledgeable and we saw wildlife +++, flowers, butterflies & generally learned heaps about the rainforest. The Canal trip was nice but not as brilliant as the Rainforest.

Wir waren nur zu zweit plus unserem Guide Steven, der uns mit Informationen und guter Laune prächtig durch den Tag geführt hat. Im Veragua Rainforest bekamen wir 4 weitere Gäste und eine Leiterin des Parks an die Seite. Dort wurden wir mit fundierten Kenntnissen über Flora und Fauna versorgt. Anschliessend fuhren wir zwei mit Steven weiter nach Tortuguero und hatten eine entspannte Bootsfahrt im Kanal mit Mangroven und Blick auf diverse Tiere.
