My wife & I booked this tour through Shore Excursions Group. We were met just outside the dock area in Limon. There were about 20 in our tour, so they put us in 2 large, air-conditioned vans, each with its own driver & guide. After a quick tour of the city, we headed to the Tortuguero Canal. Along the way,... More
