Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Fantastic time venturing into the heart of the rainforest! The staff was phenomenal, we were fortunate enough to go on a Sunday at the end of peak season, as a result, we had the excursion all to ourselves. From the very knowledgeable guide, apologetically his name escapes me, to the ziplining experience, this was well worth it. I had never zip lined beforehand but Danny & Charlie made things easy and kept it lighthearted.

    This was an included excursion for Viking Ocean and based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided on this excursion. It's touristy but it was great fun. Our guide Michael was great, the boat captain had a great eye for spotting the wildlife. We saw sloths moving, Toucan birds, white faced monkeys traveling through the trees. Got to see adolescent night herons up close & personal, and best of all, we got very close to a Jesus lizard, hard to spot since he is so vividly green. We were hoping to see a crocodile but no luck and no one was willing to stir the Canal water with their hand! It also rained really hard briefly which kept the mosquitoes away and there was a breeze. We were lucky that it was cloudy and breezy, I would imagine that it could get really hot.

    A short visit however a highly enjoyable and educational one. Everyone was so friendly and explained the life cycle of the beautiful butterflies. We saw tiny frogs, turtles and so many butterflies. Unfortunately the sloth was in hiding. We were treated to some delicious organic fruit grown in their own garden. Well worth a stop on any tour. Thanks Oscar and team.

    I loved this beach. The water was nice and refreshing, and the food was decently priced and delicious. There are umbrellas and chair for purchase. The only problem was that the semi-strong waves made it hard for certain people to enjoy the water.

    This was a great excursion. Exploradores Outdoors was the tour provider - via Princess Cruises shore excursions. Tour guides were excellent - very friendly and knowledgeable. The river was fun! Decent rapids but nothing crazy, don’t worry. Saw a couple sloths along the way... we were actually able to pull over to get out of the raft for a closer look. Buffet lunch afterwards was a nice touch. Highly recommend. Thanks guys!

    You don't exactly think visiting a church while in Costa Rica. It's all about the beaches. But if you are like us, among the Christian faithful, or you just appreciate beautiful architecture, you should go. In addition to the simplicity of it's design the sense of reverence is profound. It is serene. And you will need all of that serenity to recovery from the Limon traffic and to prepare for your drive back. It is certainly worth the effort. There is an open gate to get into the grounds (which are beautiful) and into the church. You can park inside the gate or on the street.

    Stopped on this beautiful beach to have a picnic. Very natural easy to park on the side of the road. Scenic and private at the time we were there with locals swimming and fishing

    Eric and Jose run a great operation. We highly recommend doing this! We learned a lot about Costa Rica as well as seeing a Sloth, Poisonous Dart Frogs and learning about banana plantations. Take the time and check them out. They will show you a great time!!

    If you are close by the port walking along the seawall you will run into this park. Few nice pieces of art in the park which was clean when we were there. Some local vendors. Once walk thru the park will come to a wide road with more art work and plenty of shopping along the road and down the alleys, road is closed to traffic. Christmas tree is up. Best and safest place to walk in limon in my opinion. Lots of fresh shrimp for sale.

    Had a wonderful time! As a smoker it was irritating though since there were only a couple places to smoke in each park. I understand there is no more smoking inside the park now at all. Fast passes helped with the crowds. Bring lots of money as it is expensive. We stayed off the grounds at the beautiful Sheraton Vistana Resort. Accommodations were great!
