Just one day in Puntarenas

Sadly we will only have one day in Puntarenas in late November 2012 as we are on a cruise.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to what we can do for one day starting at the port? We are not keen to take an official tour as offered by the cruise company as too expensive too "organized".

We are from Australia so will be way out of familiar territory!

Many thanks

Pisang.

Once you leave the cruise ship you will see a number of tour operators ready to go. Their prices are a lot better than the cruise company, and you will find them just off the end of the dock. Not much to do in Puntarenas, these guides will have something for you depending on your activity levels.

Have a great holiday.

At some point have a "Churchill" on the boardwalk as all the Ticos do. Muy Rico!

I will be very carefull about some jokers playing tour operator around the port...no insurance...not good vehicles...any ICT certification...just people looking to make a buck...nothing wrong with people loooking to make a buck ...but is important when your life and your family life is in between..

Just walk around get a good CHURCHILL as mentioned by Cana Tico and he knows the area well...they are very refreshing...about 20 billion calories but great!
