You will be heading to Carara Adventure Park & Reserve, a private reserve about 1-hour drive from the pier.

(price of lunch is not included).

The transportation will take you on a city tour where you will see many examples of local life and highlights of the Puntarenas. This is the largest city in the Central Pacific. Some 120 kilometers west of the capital San Jose, Puntarenas means "sandy point" in Spanish, and used to be one of the country's principal seaports. Situated in the Gulf of Nicoya, Puntarenas has played a huge role in the history of Costa Rica. For years this city was a major seaport. However, now it is mostly used as a stopover port for many cruise ships that sail the waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Still used as an important commercial fishing port, Puntarenas offers visitors and locals alike, a variety of tantalizing fresh seafood such as shrimp, lobsters, fish, etc. A lively and attractive city, perhaps one of Puntarenas's most interesting features is the Paseo de Los Turistas. This is a tree-lined promenade adjacent to the beach. This area turns into a colorful street on weekends, as people from all over flock the popular restaurants, discos, cafes, bars and hotels that are found here.

While the beach here is not safe for swimming because the water tends to be pretty murky, it is still a great place to hang out and relax with the local Ticos. It is definitely worth exploring this city, as there are many beautiful old unusual buildings found all over the place, as well as several fabulous restaurants and hotels. Puntarenas also has a lovely old church, which is a must see as well.

Note: This tour is highly recommended for the whole family, including seniors and children. However, participants must be able to walk at least 0.7 miles in a tropical climate.

You may decide to be dropped off directly back at your pier after this unique sightseeing shore excursion in Puntarenas Costa Rica. Or you may choose to stay in town and return to the ship at your leisure - it is a short walk back to the pier.

Really enjoyed the skywalk. The guide was knowledgeable and the following lunch was great. Only criticism was the weather and that I wished it was a longer walk . Like cloud forests it was cloudy and rainy.

Wonderful guide, Alberto, answered all of our questions and pointed out a lot of wildlife we would have missed. Was very enthusiastic and would not hesitate to book with them again. We never felt rushed and cannot praise them enough. We received exactly what was promised and more.

I found Shore Excursioneer while researching for excursions for our first cruise and no doubt we will recommend and continue to book any tours through their site! Our favorite excursion was the full day excursion Puntarenas with (tour operator). Shore Excursioneer assisted us with the booking process including quoting and arranging it as a private tour. We were impressed with the quality and professionalism and the excursion itself was impressive. Everything listed +. Crocodiles, monkeys, history, local cuisine! So much in one day but well worth it!

What a day. There was so much to do and see, we certainly stayed busy and got our money's worth. The guide took us around the Puntarenas area and showed us many sights. But I must admit, when we got to the rainforest for the suspension bridge tour I was not excited. I am personally not a fan of big bridges, but this was really different. My mind was focused on the surroundings and not the bridge. The suspension bridge was actually my favorite part of the whole day. The rainforest is like a whole other world, where we could peacefully watch some of the wildlife there. We were very happy with this tour and we would love to go back to spend more time in the rainforest.

I ran out of energy at the end of the 7 hours. It was my fault as the guide was good and we enjoyed seeing Costa Rica. But there was just too much to see.

This tour has everything you would want. It is 7 hours of adventure, sightseeing, and fun. Our favorite part? It is a tie between the hanging bridge and the wildlife reserve. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
