Sightseeing, a boat trip, fresh fruit samples and then a walk on a beautiful beach! Sounds good? Then come enjoy this Costa Rica Puerto Limon Excursion that has a bit of everything and shows you the best of Puerto Limon.

You'll start this great half day shore excursion by meeting your local excursion guide just outside your Puerto Limon cruise ship terminal. You'll hop onboard a comfortable, and air-conditioned transportation for a scenic 20-minute ride to the Tortuguero Canal. The covered boat seats up to 26 passengers comfortably. Your sightseeing excursion guide will be with you the entire time giving you lots of good and interesting bits of information.

You'll take a leisurely ride down the canal surrounded by tropical beauty. Your friendly guide will share information about the Costa Rican environment andTortuguero. You'll have a full hour to keep an eye out for the toucans, sloths, monkeys, iguanas, land turtles and more. Be sure to bring your camera, you'll not want to miss capturing these moments. The rainforest is lovely and so very tranquil, it is hard not to relax.

Once your boat ride comes to an end, you'll get back onboard your transportation for a 10-minute ride to Playa Bonita, or "beautiful beach". You will soon see why this beach is a favorite of the locals or Ticos. If the weather is good for taking a dip, go ahead. If not, and your guide will be able to tell, you can go shelling, or maybe purchase a bite to eat at the restaurants that dot the beach side. No rush, you'll have an hour to enjoy the gorgeous scenery, take a stroll, or just relax in a chair.

When it's time to leave, the transportation will head to a lookout point where you can spend 10 minutes taking in the fabulous view or take some pictures for later. Then enjoy sights of Puerto Limon on your way to the next stop just 10 minutes away.

You will visit a fruit stand, where local farmers exhibit the best of their produce. Enjoy a free sample of the seasonal fruit that is fresh and delicious. You will have 15-minutes to taste and browse.

Heading back into town, you will have the time to take a quick stop (about 15 minutes) at a local supermarket where you can purchase some of the coffee that has made this country famous.

At this point, it's time to head back to your Puerto Limon cruise ship pier. Your guide and driver will drop you off at the entrance of the cruise terminal and make sure to have you back in plenty of time, so no worries, just relax and enjoy your day!

This was an exciting venture into Limon. We saw wild monkeys, birds and crocodiles. The visit to the farm was great too bad we couldnt go to the banana plant. The river boat trip was fantastic. will definitely do this one again!

Great way to see a nice variety of things - super guide and drive

We were so happy with our guide Danikza and driver Federico. Dani was very knowledgeable and Federico was a great driver. There were only 3 couples on our excursion so we were in a nice Nissan minivan, clean and comfortable with great A/C! Unlike the cruise ship groups in 50+ passenger buses, we were able to pull off the road to see various sights and animals along the drive. They provided chilled bottled water and guava juice, and tailored our trip based on customer feedback. When we got to the dock for the canal boat trip, there were many boats of suspect condition (rusty, a bent frame over the passenger seats covered in a tarp, etc.) - ours was in tiptop shape and every seat had a lifevest at it!

The Guide was a local who spoke English. We had a great guide to provide a wealth of information about his country and the local customs Sunday, November 12,2017. The drive along the coast to the Puerto Limon Banana Plantation was very beautiful and provided an opportunity to see wildlife and many fruit and nut trees. Interesting seeing how the bananas are grown, harvested, and processed all the way to shipping. We saw monkeys, and many other different kids of animals. monkeys swinging on the trees,We hold sloths & tour guide took photo for my family We took a boat ride on a river looking for wildlife with experiences driver, we went to nice beach hight waves,two foods markets, sweet coconut $1 shop. On cruise ship sell this tour $120 person,I bought this tour $55 person. We have free drinks. Tour guide & car driver came early to wait for us outside the cruise ship.Before they droff us off , they waited us acroos the street safety first after that they drove car a way. This action remind us of tour guide in saint Lucia last April, 2017.

 Whenever possible I always choose Shore Excursioneer. Their excursions are always "top notch" and so very easy to book. I very rarely book through the ship anymore, mainly because the same excursion is probably more expensive or they don't offer an excursion that I'm interested in. Case in point on our last trip to Cozumel on the Valor we booked our excursion to Mr. Sanchos Beach Club through Shoreexcursioneer.com since Carnival didn't even offer it.
