Full description
Get picked up from the cruise pier. Journey through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside and see from the vehicle many sights of interest including mango, coffee, sugar and citrus plantations, diverse fruit stands and rural farming communities.  Begin your journey through the rainforest at the Tarcolitos River canyon, in a 200-hectare private reserve. You will be crossing the river eight times, in a cart drawn by a tractor, so that you can appreciate both the flora and fauna of the region. During the tour, make several stops for birdwatching and to discover the important trees of the area. If weather conditions permit, stop to get off the wagon and swim in a natural pool.  The tour will continue with a short drive to the Tarcoles River, where you will head out on an hour-long boat tour. Experience the abundant wildlife of the area, including crocodiles, multiple aquatic birds, scarlet macaws, howler monkeys, and other amazing tropical species. Finally, return to the Puntarenas cruise ship pier, where you will be dropped off.
