Frederico was great! He was very nice and very knowledgeable. He went out of his way to help us see as much wildlife as possible and he seemed as excited as us to spot animals. We saw sloths, monkeys, iguanas and many birds. We highly recommend him! Thank You Frederico for making our experience so great!

We had an Amazing tour with our guide Dani and driver. They meet us as planned just outside the cruise port with our names written on a board. Very organized. We were a group of nine. We had one in our group using a cane so the driver brought the van around. Very considerate. We travelled out of the city and as we drove our guide told us all about Limon, she was very knowledgeable. Our driver stopped to point out birds, (we had a birdwatcher in our group) , monkeys and sloths. We had a stop at a fruit stand and learned about fruits native to Puerto Rico. Our next stop was a banana plantation where we were able to get out and Dani explained the process for growing and harvesting bananas. We carried on and had an hour on the Tortuguero Canal. The boat was covered offering relief from the sun. We were able to spot alligators, different species of lizards, monkeys, sloths and many different birds. Our driver was very experienced in spotting hidden or camouflaged wildlife. On our return to the ship we stopped at a beach to dip our toes in the ocean. Next an overlook of Limon where we took group pictures and enjoyed a local beverage. The locals were very friendly at each stop. Our final stop was to a grocery store where Dani helped us with interpreting. We were so impressed with how much Dani knew in so many different fields regarding her country. We highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to Limon. Dani and the driver were very, kind, pleasant and knowledgeable! A big thumbs up!👍😁

Highly recommend this tour. Dani was our tour guide and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our driver was very accommodating to us (we were a group of 9) and made several stops along the way if he spotted native birds, monkeys or sloths.
An extremely enjoyable morning.

Fredrick and Eric were so amazing -- full of information and great at spotting all the elusive creatures in the canals. We got to enjoy the produce of the region, the beautiful cruise through the canals, and a wonderful stop at Playa Bonita, the beautiful beach! This was an amazing excursion for an amazing price!

Our boat was covered and kept off the sun. The crew were very knowledgeable and pointed out many species along the way and so we were able to see birds and animals which made the trip enjoyable .
Also our driver Steve was excellent.

We were met right outside the Puerto Limon Cruise port gate by Federico, who did an outstanding job as our guide. His knowledge of the country, including the natural, as well as the cultural part, was outstanding. He gave us a good sense of the place at which we were stopping for too short of a time. We didn’t feel rushed, but we received a wealth of information from the dissection of a cacao bean, and tasting the outer covering of the bean, if you wished, from spotting a Capuchin monkey while we were in the car on a road next to the airplane runway in Limon. We all stopped on the side of the road and were able to take photographs. We even went to a farm where they had a couple of sloths sleeping in a tree. If we had wanted to, we could have touched the sleeping animal. Wonderful. Stopped in a commercial banana field to see how they are grown and harvested. The tour by boat in the Tortuguero Canal was also well-done. We saw monkeys, iguanas, a sloth, and numerous egrets and herons. Our boat pilot even took us next to a small cayman (reptile) in the canal. We stopped at Playa Bonita for photos. We ended the tour with opportunity to have a drink at a nice bar/restaurant that had a magnificent view overlooking the harbor. Great photo opportunity! This company is first-rate. Don’t be afraid of taking a tour that is not provided by your cruise ship company. If you sign up with Relax Tours in Puerto Limon, you will be very satisfied

What a fun day of sightseeing of Puerto Limon via Relax Day tours. Our guide, Larry, was excellent. He had a great sense of humor and everyone enjoyed the teasing going on between him and a sweet, talkative little 84 yr.old lady. We went to a banana grove, saw numerous sloths, had free samples of coffees and fruits at a stand, went to a nice little spot on the beach for lunch, toured downtown Puerto Limon and had a few minutes of shopping allowed while on the tour, and were returned to the ship in prime time-even with the road construction going on. I would do the tour again if Larry was our guide! =)

Thanks again to Larry from Relax Day Tours for not only giving a great tour but also talking with our mom! We went all over the place in Limon--fruit stand and souvenir shop, banana plantation, farm with various cultivated plants and animals, Tortuguero Canals and Playa Bonita (including tasty red snapper at the restaurant), Catholic Cathedral downtown and a supermarket, etc. ... saw lots of wildlife including several sloths, various birds, an alligator, and some monkeys. We traveled around Limon in a minivan with a small group, 9 people in total, and switched to a smaller motorboat when going through the Canals. Seems like a very organized company as well and several guides were outside the security checkpoint for the cruise terminal waiting for us, and my name was prominently displayed on a sign. Probably the best guided tour I've ever taken!

It was a Great Tour,
We learned a lot about Costa Rica. It's history, economy, and wild life from our very knowledgeable guide Frederico. He took time to answer any questions we had and we never felt like we were rushed through the tour.
Our driver Edwardo has eyes like an eagle. He was able to spot sloths, monkeys, birds and iguanas in the trees as we were rolling along. And he always stopped to point them out so we could take pictures.
I would recommend this tour to anyone. Well worth the price!
