A great, all-encompasing tour of Costa Rica! Enjoy a "6 in 1 tour" with a professional naturalist tour guide, who will introduce you to the most important aspects of the Afro-Caribbean Culture of Costa Rica, and show you the rich wildlife of this fascinating region.

First a city tour of Puerto Limon, where history records that in 1502 Christopher Columbus landed here. The country's port has much import and export traffic. The city's old quarter has the characteristics of a historical center and is currently under urban renovation with restoration of buildings and a pedestrian walkway from Parque Vargas to the market.

Then enjoy a journey through the rainforest with a 45 minute nature walk offering beautiful landscapes, various flora and fauna as well as many opportunities to see the remarkably fascinating different frog species of Costa Rica, such as the red dart frog. If you are lucky, you will witness the popular 3 toed sloth and a variety of unique bird species such as Toucans, Oropendola, Tanagers, Hummingbirds, Kiskidees and much more! The creeks by your side and the eclectic groupings of trees surrounding you will set the perfect atmosphere to explore the beauties of Costa Rica that you always hear about.

You will also visit a Banana Plantation and Packing House, where many interesting facts about this amazing fruit will be explained including the crop, harvesting, processing, packing and exportation. Costa Rica is the second largest banana producer in the world and 80% of the plantations are located in Limon province, which has become one of the most important economical activities in the region. On weekdays, you will be able to see the workers doing their job in the fields and the packing house. This is a very interesting cultural experience that you can’t miss.

Now for a coastal drive where the beautiful scenery of Puerto Limon becomes the apparent attraction for its popularity. This drive stops and starts at the different highlights described in this tour.

We have all heard of the Tortuguero Canals. The best way to see the canals is by boarding your covered boat for a 60 minutes leisurely cruise through the jungle canals. Your guide will show you the rain forest eco-system and point out sights of interest. Keep an eye out for wildlife, including howler monkeys, many sloths, toucans, aquatic birds, bats and crocodiles as well as exotic flora.

Finally now enjoy the souvenirs stores and shopping to help remember this day. During our Limon Highlights tour, you will enjoy many different souvenirs stores. The Caribbean is full of diversity, and boasts many cultures: Afro-Costa Rican, Bribri and Cabécar, Asian, Italian and Central American, among others. Besides food, the region features a collection of cultural activities and traditions that also set it aside from the rest of the country.

This tour is designed to help you become an expert on the rich cultural heritage and ecological resources of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.
