Tortuguero Canal Eco Cruise and banana plantation Shore excursion from Limon
Charles_M
, Mar 2020
This was a very exciting tour. Steven was an awesome tour guide. He was very knowledgable. We went to the by a banana plantation and learned how banana are grown and harvested. The rain forest was amazing. We seen lots of sloths, birds, and many different wildlife. The Tortugero canal boat ride was absolutely amazing. Lots of different wild life. The highlight of this tour that amazed us so much was the boat driver Charlie pulled the boat up under a sloth about 5-6 feet over our head. It was totally breath taking to be that close to a sloth and watch it move. This tour was the best highlights of our trip.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions. In Cahuita National Park, He pointed out a lot of animals different monkeys, etc. and other things like hermit crabs and even a yellow eyelash pit viper snake up in a tree! We spent very little time at the banana plantation but the boat trip was very fun and interesting. We saw Howler monkeys, iguanas, a Black Hawk and more.Highly recommend if you really love nature!

Unorganized at the pier. Walking tour thru the rain forest was substituted for the banana plantation, since banana plantation part of tour has changed. Which was excellent. I recommend this tour.
