What to Expect
Meet your guide at the cruise port just steps from your ship and board an air-conditioned vehicle for the drive to the Tortuguero Canals. Stop to admire views of Puerto Limon from a scenic vista point along the way.
Upon arrival at the canals, board a covered boat for a 1.5-hour cruise, looking out for animals like sea turtles and crocodiles with the help of your guide. Then, continue to a banana plantation to learn about one of Costa Rica’s biggest exports before heading to Cahuita National Park for a 1.5-hour nature walk with your guide. Bring a swimsuit for an optional dip in the sea.
The tour concludes back in Puerto Limon, where you have the option of shopping for souvenirs, picking up goods at a supermarket, or heading straight back to the port.
