Air-conditioned transportation will take you through the wonderful Costa Rica countryside as your guide point out the interest sites including mango, sugar and citrus plantations, diverse fruit stands and rural farming communities. The TuruBari Tropical Park is about a 1 hour drive from the pier. Upon arrival to our beautiful property, you will have some free time for use restrooms and explore the surroundings before starting the trek.
The TuruBari Tropical Park is the ideal place for visitors who are looking to learn more about Costa Rica's natural history, discovering our ancestor's life style or simply enjoy the beautiful landscape. The activity start with the Aerial Tram, designed, built and guaranteed by the French Company POMA GALSKI, a world leader in this type of attraction.
The tram is about 2,000 feet long, reaching a maximum height of 262 feet. Eight gondolas with a capacity of six people and 1,050 pounds each make the entire trip in 20 minutes, descending inside the rain forest, where the main park attractions are located.
The cruise excursion guide will lead you through multiple attractions including: a giant Butterfly Garden with many colorful species, including a lab with eggs, caterpillars and cocoons, several rainforest trails with primary forest, an Orchid, Cactus and Bromeliad Garden, a typical sugar mill in operation with the traditional Ox, traditional plantations such as coffee, sugar cane, banana, aromatic spices, cocoa and others.
A typical countryside farm is also included in this experience, where you will be able to see turkeys, chickens, ducks and pigs. TuruBari is also a rehabilitation center for wildlife species that had been injured or rescued by the park rangers. Iguana, White Tail Deer, Crocodile, Monkey and other species are part of the wildlife you can observe. After the nature walk, you take a second Tram ride to return to the visitors center, there is a restaurant available for all those interested in taste the typical flavors of the Costa Rica cuisine and local beer for a small extra charge.
Before returning to your cruise ship's pier in Puerto Caldera port, you will have a city sightseeing tour as your guide narrates the sights you pass.
