Full description
Enjoy a half-day tour around the Puerto Limon and visit some of its most famous attractions as you learn more about the region from your professional guide. Spot the local wildlife on a 1-hour boat ride on the Tortuguero Canals and feel the sand under your feet at Playa Bonita. Taste fresh fruits from a local fruit stand. As you travel to your first stop in an air-conditioned vehicle, learn from your local guide interesting facts about Costa Rica's Caribbean province. Start off with exploring the Tortuguero Canals on a 1-hour covered boat trip, a fantastic chance to appreciate the rich wildlife of Costa Rica's Caribbean coast. With some luck, you'll be able to see animals such as monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and basilisks, as well as many sorts of birds. Next, head to Playa Bonita, a nice small beach. If the weather is nice and after your guide makes sure you're good to go, feel free to enjoy the waters. Alternatively, sit down and relax or head over to one of the nearby restaurants to enjoy a local dish or a Costa Rican beer (at your own expense). Then, visit a scenic viewpoint where you have a panoramic view of most of Puerto Limon's small city and even the coastline and ship docks. This is a great place for a photo-op. After the breathtaking views, it is time to visit the Fruit Stand to learn about different tropical plants and trees, but also to taste their fresh fruits. As the tour is coming to an end, you can optionally visit a supermarket where you can purchase goods such as top quality coffee at fair local prices. After, you are dropped back in Puerto Limon.
