Add to Itinerary

Known as Costa Rica's Amazon because of its surrounding rain forest, the Tortuguero Canal region is rich in exotic flora and fauna.

Board your covered boat for a leisurely cruise through the jungle canals. Your guide will introduce you to the rain forest eco-system and point out sights of interest. Keep an eye out for wildlife, including howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, bats, aquatic birds, iguanas, and crocodiles!

On our return, we will pass many banana plantations and your guide will stop at one of them, where many interesting facts about this amazing fruit will be explained. Learn about the entire process - from the crop, harvesting and processing to packing and exportation. Costa Rica is the second largest banana producer in the world and 80% of the plantations are located in Limon province.

This tour is an excellent introduction to the culture and rainforest of Costa Rica.
