Full description
Start off your tour in comfort in an air-conditioned vehicle. Listen to your local guide share interesting facts about Costa Rica's Caribbean province. Take the scenic road and see the city of Puerto Limon from a viewpoint. Snap some pictures of the capital city and the ship docks. Explore the Tortuguero Canals on a 1.5-hour boat ride. Under the shade of the boat’s ceiling, your tour guide will point you to the different plants and animals in the area, and you'll learn about its biodiversity. Learn more about tropical plants and their fruits. You'll be able to see the actual plants and trees, and also taste some of these delicious fruits at a rustic fruit stand on the way to Cahuita. Stop outside a banana plantation and get to know the process of cultivating, harvesting, and shipping the fruit. Understand how bananas are a big part of Costa Rican economy, with Limon being central to this activity. Enjoy a 1.5-hour walk across the beautiful Cahuita National Park where you'll get to see even more animals and exotic plants. If the weather is nice, you can also take a dip in the sea. You will also have a stop to take a look at local products at the supermarket. Choose to take some Costa Rican coffee or other local goods home to remember your trip by.
