We booked the 6-1-A tour online with Syl Travel with a $100 deposit & the rest paid at the dock pick up. We were met by Enrique & pleasantly surprised to see that our group of 4 would be a private tour. Our first stop was the sloth sanctuary which was very interesting & highly informative. After which we were taken on a canoe ride where we saw sloths in their natural habitat & also a Toucan.The next stop was outside the banana plantation (no tours allowed) & then off to Cahuita National Park where saw Howler & Cappuccino monkeys & even a humming bird nest. The last stop was at a fruit stand/souvenir shop where the land owner gave us samples of his freshly grown fruits. I suggest you purchase your souvenirs/CR coffee at this stop. After which we headed back to the port & was given the option to stop & wander around the town of Puerto Limon. After a long day; we declined & opted to go back onboard. Our guide Enrique was a charming knowledgeable young guide; very personable & we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. I highly recommend SylTravel & would do another tour with them.

Perfectly organized, beautiful and interesting stops and Yensi, our Guide, was very knowledgeable! We had much fun and learned a lot :)

To sum it up: I highly recommend Syltravel (More than any other organized tour From Aida, Tui and so on)

We booked the rain forest and the canal ride with SYLtravel for our stop in Costa Rica on our cruise. We were hoping to avoid the mass of crowds of everyone booking the excursions from the cruise ship. What a great choice we made...it was literally us and one other couple. The trip to the rain forest is about one hour but we were in a nice air conditioned van and Enrique was great the whole time...he was very knowledgeable on Costa Rica and I really learned a lot. It was a great day!

We had such a great day with Enrique! Beyond our expectations for sure, knowledgeable about every question we had. Went out of his way to make sure our day was awesome. Hope we cross his path again.

Thanks Enrique

We spent a wonderful day with Ana Herrera of SYLtravel recently! Our tour included the Tortuguero Canal and the Cahuita National Park. Ana did a magnificent job from driving in an Easter Holiday traffic to telling us very unique stories of Limon's history and culture. We learned a lot about flora and fauna of the whole area as well as its people. I loved trying local drinks, fruit, and snacks that Ana treated us to. She was simply amazing in the Cahuita National Park. Her natural talent of finding jungle creatures and plants is second to none. Enjoyed the monkeys the most! They were all over trying to score some snacks from some humans having their holiday picnics! Ana graciously took our pictures, helped us with our food orders, and even broke into happy singing! We enjoyed every minute of our excursion with her! Extremely unique experience! Thank you, Ana Herrera! I would love to visit Limon again in the future because of my great memories!
