Tortuguero Canals Including Playa Bonita and Puerto Limon Highlights
From US$55.00
Experience Puerto Limon’s highlights—from the biodiverse Tortuguero Canals to the calm Playa Bonita—in as little as four hours on this shore excursion. Since you won’t have to worry about arranging transportation between destinations, you can relax while you hear informative commentary from your guide about Puerto Limon’s most popular attractions.
What to Expect
The tour begins as soon as you step off your cruise ship and your guide meets you with a sign. After taking a brief tour of the city and snapping photos from a scenic vista point, board an air-conditioned vehicle and head to the Tortuguero Canals for a 1-hour boat ride featuring the area’s many plants and animals.

Continue to a fruit stand and banana plantation to learn about some of Costa Rica’s biggest exports and sample fruits unique to tropical environments. Then, relax by the shore of Playa Bonita with free time to swim, sunbathe, or order fresh seafood from one of the beachfront restaurants.

The tour concludes with a brief stop at a supermarket to shop for goods like local coffee before dropping you off at the port.

Great experience

Larry is an all-star guide. Passionate about his country and very informative. Tour was well paced and flexible. Takes fantastic care of his guests. Would recommend strongly. The whole tour team, including the driver and the boat operator, was exceptional.

I don't think the van was handicapped accessible, and it would not be possible to take a scooter into the boat.
