Once at Tortuguero, you will climb aboard a covered boat that seats up to 26 passengers.

Your guide will be narrating as the boat makes its' way down the canal. Keep those cameras ready! Your time on the canal will be approximately 1.5 hours. You can just relax and take in all the sights.

The boat will land and you will hop back aboard your transportation to head further south and visit a native fruit stand with a vast selection of seasonal produce. Free samples of some of the local fruits will be offered, they are delicious. You will spend about half an hour and then it's back to your transportation for a short 15-minute ride and more sights along the way.

Your next excursion stop will be at a real banana plantation where you will learn about the growth, harvest, and transportation of this fruit from the tree to your table. See the banana trees and the fruit hanging to ripen.

Enjoy stories told by your guide during the 40-minute ride to Cahuita National Park.

Once at Cahuita Park, your guide will lead you through the hiking trails and tell you about the diversity of the wildlife of Costa Rica. Your guide will point out when some of the Cahuita Park inhabitants in the rainforest trees. The sightseeing includes sloths, coatis, raccoons, toucans, herons, green ibis, and much more. The trail leads to a pristine beach. If the weather permits, you are welcome to take a dip in the clear waters. The park also has a Costa Rican cuisine restaurant, where you can purchase lunch and drinks. The complete hike is 1.6 miles, but guests may choose to shorten the hike.

After your 1.5 hours in this beautiful, protected area, you'll head back to your transportation, which will take you back to your cruise ship pier. The ride back is approximately 45 minutes and there is an optional 15-minute stop at a local supermarket where you can buy coffee and handcrafts, before being dropped off at your Puerto Limon Cruise Terminal.

Best excursion ever!
     5/5  (Visited on January 2020)
Was worried about using a excursion outside of the cruise company. But we had a private tour, just the 3 of us. Saw everything stated on the brochure and animals everywhere. Plus the cost was 100 less than the quoted cruise cost. Win-Win. Friends did cruise excursion and missed many animals just because of the number of people in their large group. Will use shore excursioneer service for future Cruise's. And vehicle was clean and air-conditioned.

We took this tour while on a cruise, and if you enjoy wildlife I highly recommend it. Our tour guide was Florian and our driver was Eric. Both of them seemed to have laser vision, spotting wildlife! The boat tour was wonderful. We saw sloth, white faced monkeys, howler monkeys,several birds, green basilisk, iguanas and more.

Wonderful day in Puerto Limon on this tour. There were four of us on the excursion and our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Costa Rican Culture, wildlife and assisted in taking photos of hard to spot wildlife. My favorite was the Tortuguero River Cruise seeing the sltohs, green obelisks and a variety of birds in their natural habitat. The Cahuita National Park also gave you an up close and personal view of the local wildlife.

I was unsure of taking a tour outside of the cruise line, and I am really impressed and thankful with this company. We saved a lot of money and had a really enjoyable tour. They run small personalized groups. Our local guide was fantastic and every single stop was really great and educational. Surely will recommend this and will use your company on my next cruise tour.

Had such a wonderful experience on this tour. Cahuita National Park was my favorite part. The hike/walk is over 30 minutes at low pace seeing a lot of wild animals along the way. Saw raccoons, a sloth, a few monkeys up in the trees, lots of green iguanas, etc. We stopped at a beautiful sandy beach and also at a pretty water cascade. We made the perfect choice. Thanks, ShoreExcursioneer.

If you are looking to do the most during your time and see as much as you can, then take a look at this one. We had a personalized tour guide for our group that had 7 people in it. We visited the Cahuita Park which was my favorite stop. We had a boat ride along the river which was our favorite section. We visited a real banana plantation. And throughout the whole trip we saw a lot of animals like raccoons, iguanas, sloth, monkeys and a lot of tropical birds. Every family should take this type of tour which are interesting and educational.

We had what turned out to be a small group, just our party for a group tour of Costa Rica. It was fantastic. Federico (was our guide) and he was excellent. The Tortuguero River Cruise was outstanding. Federico had an eagle eye in spotting monkeys, sloths, caymans, iguanas, birds and other wildlife. Nice relaxing boat ride on the canals. After that a stop at a banana plantation, which was great, and a fruit stand which had great exotic fruit for purchase (I'd recommend a refreshing coconut water) After that we did a nature walk in Cahuita and that was spectacular. Got to see and hear Howler monkeys, and other white faced monkeys, along with sloths, one was nearby relaxing in a branch by the water which Federico spotted. Saw some parrots and other things as well. Great tour and great guide.
