Cahuita Park entrance is free. The guide knew very little except translation of names from English to native language.
Mar 2020
Extremely over priced tour as many are in Costa Rica. Cahuita Park is free and many people help each other find or share animals, others seen. I believe the tour guides would should all take a tour and Lear from the Tree of Life Rescue, Rehibilation, Release Center.

You reviewed the wrong company! We are certain you did not travel with us. We checked your profile, and you claim to have been in Cahuita on March, but you also visited a lot of other places in Costa Rica (such as La Fortuna, which is far away). All of our customers during March came on cruise ships, and in fact, basically all of our customers are cruise ship passengers. You couldn't have taken our tour! It looks like you were travelling on your own by car, or that you bought a multi-day tour package from another company (we do not offer that). We do not operate this tour from Cahuita, we begin from the cruise ship terminal in Puerto Limon (over 40 km away). Also, our guides do not just tell you the names of the animals, we always try to give you plenty of information and make your tour entertaining. You can check our REAL reviews to see that we strive for excellency. Please CHECK before posting a review and making a mistake like this, as you are hurting a hard-working company in these terrible times of crisis which have already decimated our industry.

Excellent Tour, Phenomenal Tour Guides
Mar 2020
From the excellent communication to the phenomenal tour guides and great tour, this was an excursion worth the time and money. Florian was knowledgeable, personable and a great tour guide. He did a great job finding and pointing out the wildlife in a number of places. And Gato, our driver, did the same. Florian saw a sloth as we returned from the canal tour and made the boat driver turn around. Gato saw monkeys in the trees as we were driving and stopped so we could see them and get good pictures. Definitely an 5 star rating.

Perfect tour in Puerto Limon
Feb 2020 • Couples
Met at the cruise terminal exit by our guide Dani & driver Eric. Had a lovely seven hour trip including a boat trip on the canals & walk through the National Park. Dani & Eric were excellent at spotting the wildlife. She gave us information about the history & culture & opportunity to sample local produce. Her English & commentary were excellent & we recommend this day out.

Rating for Company-as we missed our tour
This review is for Relax Day Tour company, not the tour itself, since our cruise ship had to skip port due to medical emergency.

From the start of booking, to cancellation, this group was extremely professional and helpful. We decided to book our own day tour to get away from the big cruise groups. This can be slightly more risky, so I always research the company well.

Unfortunately, due to a medical emergency, our cruise had to skip this port, last minute. We were heartbroken for so many reasons. We didn’t have WiFi on ship and didn’t think to immediately get it and ask for a refund. I figured I could work on this from home but assumed I would lose the money. However, at our next schedule shore day, I got onto my email and there was an email from Relax Day Tour stating they saw our ship had to skip the port, they were so sorry that we would miss their beautiful country, and they hoped to see us next time. They also issued us a full refund, automatically.

In this day and age, I choose to spend my money with companies which are dedicated to top notch customer service, when at all possible. This company went above and beyond and for that, I am grateful. See you next time, indeed!

Yes, as per our guarantee we will of course refund your money if our clients miss the tour for reasons out of their control. We deeply appreciate you taking your time to review our company despite the medical emergency. Thank you!

Great day in Costa Rica
Jan 2020
Just got back from a full-day, Relax Day Tour from Limon along the Costa Rican coast. The four of us were met on time, right outside the dock area by our guide Florian and driver Eduardo. Within the 7-hour time frame we were able to customize the tour to spend time where we wanted.

The little extras they provided made for a spectacular day. Florian, who knows the name of every living thing (plant and animal) in Costa Rica, guided us through the Cahuita National Park. He not only knows everything, but is able to look at a dense forest and spot obscure wildlife such as sloths, lizards, caiman and monkeys. He even gave us an "instant" tour of a banana plantation on the way. They scheduled our times so we arrived at the sloth sanctuary just as a tour was beginning (to maximize our time).

It was a great way to see the country led by a couple of locals who really knew what they were doing. Don't miss the gelato store at the entrance to Cahuita.

Fantastic experience with Steven Herrera
I had a great experience during my full day trip with Steven. He picked me up just outside of my hotel and spent some time learning about my interests and what I wanted to see and experience before departing. After learning I spoke a little Spanish, Steven graciously agreed to help me improve my ability and kindly offered to speak Spanish with me at a slower speed so I could practice talking and understanding.

We began the trip driving around Limón so I could get a better sense of the city, before arriving at the Tortugero Canals. Our boat ride through the Canals was filled with countless animal and wildlife sightings and I saw more tropical birds, lizards, and other animals then I could count.

Following the scenic boat trip, Steven picked me up and we went to Cahahuita National Park, a beautiful national park along the beach. Steven guided me partway, then let me explore the remainder of the park on my own, letting me wander through the tropical beach side jungle.

Finally, Steven took me to a fantastic local hangout spot that he mentioned was a favorite of his family where we cracked open a couple beers and I ate a late lunch of fantastic seafood.

Along the drive, Steven was always knowledgeable about the scenery and the countryside and never failed to point out interesting information about the banana plantations, the rivers we crossed, or the howler monkeys screeching in the canopy looming over the road.

I'm grateful to Steven for making the trip To Limón memorable and for his continued friendliness and offer for future correspondence; when I return to Costa Rica, I will be sure to give Steven a call.

Personal service & good itinerary, highly recommended.
Dec 2019
We were met by Jorge outside the cruise terminal just as it said in the joining instructions on the ticket. He proved to be a friendly and informative host who ensured we got back to the boat in good time. He took us to the canals before all the other tourists arrived and we had a boat to ourselves. The experienced captain made sure we saw lots of wildlife, including sloths, iguanas, monkeys & a caman. Later, when other boats arrived they went straight past. Jorge was flexible and allowed us to stop for coffee and some food at a local restaurant. The Cahuita national park was a beautiful beach with a jungle walk too. It has toilets & showers. This was our favorite day trip-authentic & relaxing, just like the name!

Excellent and well organised....
...makes a Trip with Frederico/Florian a must have!

Totally easy booking directly whilst on the MSC Divina, no advance payment requested and on time pickup at the harbour.

Tour of the canals and park were really great, best of with Florian and his extensive knowledge of country, animals and flora. Guess there is no need to call up what others already have said, this tour was our best organised one of all the excursions we did via our Carribean Cruise.

On time drop-off at the boat, had a stop at a local supermarket before that to get some local liquor :-)

Don't forget your swimming gear for the park, the water and beach is awesome.

Thanks again for an excellent trip and regards from Germany to Frederico and of course especially Florian.

Super Canal and Cahuita Tour
Dec 2019
We met Federico, our guide, just outside the port for a super tour of Port Limon, the canals and the national park. We had a small tour group of four that allowed Federico to focus on our interests and he definitely helped us spot the animals on the canals and in the national park. His knowledge and love for his country and its environs showed through at every stop. It was a wonderful tour, the highlight of our cruise and I would definitely recommend his tour and his company. For those on a cruise Federico was definitely mindful of the cruise departure times and made sure we were back on time for all aboard.

Incredible tour...Eagle Eye "Eric" and Florean were amazing. Florean was so knowledgeable and shared so much information with us. Both were patient and professional. Eric was our driver but while driving would keep a look out for sloths, monkeys, birds, caiman, etc. To stop and show us. This tour was the highlight of our entire trip. Cahuita was absolutely beaitiful... what's better than hiking oceanside in the middle of a rain forest with a knowledgeable guide??? Nothing. Thank you!!!!
