Though its Caribbean coastline is undoubtedly beautiful, a Puerto Limon shore excursion offers cruisers a taste of Costa Rica’s famously biodiverse inland area. Cruise through the Tortuguero Canals, hike in Cahuita National Park, and visit a banana plantation on this guided tour, which helps you discover the region’s attractions on a limited time budget. This tour includes a private guide and all transportation.

Extremely over priced tour as many are in Costa Rica. Cahuita Park is free and many people help each other find or share animals, others seen. I believe the tour guides would should all take a tour and Lear from the Tree of Life Rescue, Rehibilation, Release Center.

Response from Federico S, Propietario at Full-Day Tour to Cahuita National Park from Puerto Limon
Responded 2 weeks ago
You reviewed the wrong company! We are certain you did not travel with us. We checked your profile, and you claim to have been in Cahuita on March, but you also visited a lot of other places in Costa Rica (such as La Fortuna, which is far away). All of our customers during March came on cruise ships, and in fact, basically all of our customers are cruise ship passengers. You couldn't have taken our tour! It looks like you were travelling on your own by car, or that you bought a multi-day tour package from another company (we do not offer that). We do not operate this tour from Cahuita, we begin from the cruise ship terminal in Puerto Limon (over 40 km away). Also, our guides do not just tell you the names of the animals, we always try to give you plenty of information and make your tour entertaining. You can check our REAL reviews to see that we strive for excellency. Please CHECK before posting a review and making a mistake like this, as you are hurting a hard-working company in these terrible times of crisis which have already decimated our industry.
