We pre booked with Relax Day tours. We're met at the cruise terminal gate as prearranged with our guide Esteban. Nice guy friendly with good command of English. We were slightly delayed disembarking from a cruise ship and therefore had a personalised tout for two. Great safe

Dani was our guide and Federico was our driver. They were both great. On the canal we saw a few sloths, monkeys and a crocodile. It was just us and another couple, so that was great too! No complaints.

We had Dani as our guide and we really enjoyed her. The tour included everything as described. The only thing we would have changed is the beach stop. It was a 30 minute stop at a small beach. Would rather have gone to a restaurant for a local lunch. Did appreciate the grocery

Thank you for your review, we are glad to see you really enjoyed your experience and that it matched your expectations. Please keep in mind that there actually are 2 restaurants at the beach stop, and we go through one of them to reach the beach. We try to be flexible with the time, if you want more time at a stop, feel free to tell us, we can often extend the beach stop. Additionally, the grocery store stop can be replaced by a restaurant in Limon's town if you didn't like any of the restaurants at the beach. Thanks again for your review and for traveling with us!
