We went on the Tortugero wildlife tour from a cruise ship - boarding a small boat with 16 others we set of on a tour of the canal. Our guide explained about he wildlife in and around the canal pointing out birds species, a three fingered sloth and best of all a cayman. We really enjoyed the trip looking out... More

Having researched Tortuguero National Park, I wanted to spend more time on the canals than the cruise ship tours were offering. I emailed William the owner to see what was available and he offered us 3 hours on the canals and a tour of Port Limon for a very reasonable price. He told me the name of the taxi driver... More

My husband and I went on this tour earlier this year when we were on a cruise. It was an amazing day. We saw so many interesting things and always felt safe. We met up with the owner, William at the end. Super nice guy.

We (travelling as a couple) asked a tour for the next day from their website email form. The owner William answered and offered us a nice private boat tour through the canals of Tortuguero. There we saw some birds, lizards and a crocodile. We had fun with our captain Alberto, nice guy and good stories. We also got a private... More

We booked a private tour for 2 and it was perfect! William was very responsive to all of my questions and let us choose the places we would like to visit. Alexander picked us up at the cruise ship dock on time and drove us to Playa Bonita beach, canal, rain forest and other spots just to see the beauty... More

Our boat tour into the Tortuguero National Park with Tortuguero Wildlife Tour was one of the highlights of our Costa Rica vacation. William, the owner, made arrangements easy and Albert, our captain, was an expert on the local flora & fauna. Albert's ability to spot the wildlife and get us close made our day quite the adventure.

Our family of 6 (2 adults, four children ages 9, 12, 16 and 18) had one day in Puerto Limon as part of cruise. We wanted to see wildlife and experience Costa Rica but we wanted to avoid zip lining or visits to sites the kids would find boring. I contacted William and asked his recommendation. He said he would... More

William was very easy to work with by email in arranging a good tour for 4 of us. They picked us up on time at the cruise ship dock. The only thing that kept me from giving this tour a 5 was the guide was very hard to understand. He was helpful in spotting wildlife and exciting but couldn't understand... More

Tortuguero Wildlife Tour is a private local tour company that provides great tours at minimal price. We had a minivan with 7 people on board, with a guide and driver. We must have driven 100 miles on the tour stopping many places, and even had a canal boat ride through the jungle. Saw many animals, sloths, beetles, cayman, water birds,... More

I contacted William via email before departing on our cruise about his tour. He responded quickly and we continued to email until our arrival. I was only able to get 4 more people to accompany us on this tour which reduced the price. We arrived in Puerto Limon on 8 Dec 15 and our tour guide met us at the... More
