About
Enjoy the wildlife of Veragua Rainforest and the Tortuguero Canals in this shore excursion. Right outside the cruise port, an experienced guide will be waiting for you to start the tour in an air-conditioned vehicle. Enjoy the Veragua Rainforest Full Tour (entrance fee NOT included) and its variety of wildlife attractions: reptile habitat, butterfly garden, frog habitats, insectarium, biological research station and the aerial tram are some of the highlights. At the Tortuguero Canals, experience a one-hour boat ride on a covered boat. Don’t miss the chance to take pictures of sloths, monkeys, iguanas, tropical birds and more biodiversity of the region. Going back, watch most of Puerto Limon’s town from a scenic viewpoint, while your guide shares some of the history and culture of Costa Rica’s Caribbean province. You can also choose to visit a supermarket to purchase some Costa Rican coffee and other local goods at a fair price. Finally, it will be time to return to the cruise port.

Esteban was fantastic! Better than the tour booked through the cruiseline.
Mar 2020
We had such a great time and ended up with a private tour with Esteban. We watched the people from the ship experience the same things, only in a large group with lines and a crowded bus. We also paid less! We saw sloths and toucans. Highly recommended! Ask for Esteban. He told us so much about the local area and had a great sense of humor.

Excellent tour with Juan and Soto
Feb 2020
We had an excellent tour with our tour guide, Juan and driver, Soto. They were both very professional and were there at the port waiting to meet us as soon as the ship docked so that we got to the rainforest before the crowds. They had a comfortable air conditioned van. Soto had an eagle eye for seeing sloths in the trees which was amazing. Juan gave us much background information about his country & was very polite & well mannered. He kept us hydrated with cool fruit juice & even took us on a photo opp on the beach. They both made sure that we all got back to the port on time which is very important. I would totally recommend Relax Day tours & Juan & Soto and use them again if I was in the area.

Great Tour Company & beautiful Rainforest
Jan 2020
We visited Puerto Limon, Costa Rica on January 2, 2020. I made reservations in advance with Frederico from Relax Day Tours. He offered us many different packages and we decided on a private bus tour of the city area and the Veragua Rainforest tour with tram/exhibits. We were met with our name on a sign just outside the port gates by our tour guide. He was EXCELLENT!!!! He and the driver were absolutely AMAZING at finding wildlife in trees and along the road during our drive to the Rainforest. We saw 2 toed sloths and 3 toed sloths and more monkeys than we can count! All in the wild while driving around!!!! We did the rainforest tour - which was $72 USD to get into (that is the park fee, it has nothing to do with Relax Day Tours). The rainforest is beautiful, but we did not see much. The exhibits have snakes, a butterfly house and insect exhibits - all of which are found naturally in the rainforest, but we only saw them in the glass enclosures. The tram ride to the waterfall was also very pretty and we saw 1 sloth, but in all truth our guides showed us so more in the wild along the road. So, yes, the rainforest was nice, but not worth the cost really. The tour company guide/driver were MUCH MORE informative and better at finding wildlife. I HIGHLY recommend Relax Day tours. I would 100% use them again!

Great Excursion
Nov 2019
We booked via Princess so I hope this review is about the right company. This the tour we took and we enjoyed it immensely. The guide, Edrei, was informative and engaged. He moved to tour at a decent, but not rushed pace, provide good narratives and was very good. The Rainforest portion of the tor took the majority of the time and included two long bus rides over some bumpy, narrow, winding roads. Our driver was (thankfully) very skilled and Edrei helped pass the time well with stories and demos. A spoiler, if you have him, you may never view chocolate quite the same again. The time at the rainforest included a couple of brief lectures by staff / scholar / naturalists with real insight into the ecosystem and the University Foundations efforts at preservation and conservation. We toured a large number of exhibits, had a nice tram ride down and back up,(thank goodness!) about 3300 feet to a small creek and trail leading to a waterfall. My wife took the hike to the falls and reported they were quite pretty, but assured me I made the right choice to rest and watch a toucan in a tree near the tram station. Tour included a decent lunch. From the Rainforest we made to the journey to the Canals for a pleasant ride on a boat - spotted several interesting birds, a couple of sloths (one a mother with a baby) and a few monkeys - no caiman or crocs. The ride was pleasant and a good ending to a long day. We returned to a welcomed, refreshing array of fresh fruit prior to the short drive back to the ship. If you are on a cruise ship that offers this excursion, it is strongly recommended,

Great tour but didn’t see many things
Nov 2019
This tour was worth the money but we didn’t see a lot of things. We saw a slough and lots of nature. Didnt really see anything of interest when we toured the canals by boat.

Thank you very much for your opinion, I'm sorry that the boat ride was not as wildlife rich as you'd have liked. We try our best to show you as much as possible, but sometimes it does depend on luck, it is open nature wildlife. Best wishes.

Very accommodating and attentive
Spent the day with "Steven" (Esteben) on our day excursion. He was awaiting with an engaging smile when we left the terminal, that was easy and our day began. Throughout the day, he was cordial and informative. Went to lunch at a local venue that tourists would not know about (perfect) and he provided an experience only a local could provide. A real gentleman. Feel like we got a lot of bang out of our buck. (The rainforest admission cost was a tad steep, in addition to the cost of the tour, but we knew that " out of the gate").
Would highly recommend this day tour.

Fantastic day in Limon
Jan 2019 • Friends
We booked with Relax Day Tours based on some other reviews. We were in port for the entire day and the price was very reasonable for the day. Frederico and Florian was waiting for us as we walked off the ship and showed us everything possible in Limon. They were flexible with what we felt like doing and went out of their way to make sure we were able to see everything that was possible. Incredible day and we highly recommend them. Such a fun day and wonderful memories!!!
