My Review

This tour was very disappointing, especially the guide that we were provided with. Despite a confirmed pick-up time of 5:40 AM, the tour bus did not pick us up until 6:10 AM. The tour was overcrowded with passengers forced to sit on jump seats in the middle of the aisle until our first rest stop when they demanded a seat or a refund. The tour consisted primarily of a group of Spanish-speaking co-workers and while I can appreciate their wanting to enjoy the trip, the bus was very loud with gusts shouting from on end of the tour bus to the other. The guide focused her attention on those guests speaking Spanish with little info provided in English. The tour was not as promised - the guide made no attempt to point out wildlife (she looked at her phone and paperwork) and rather than turtles, we saw turtle holes. The final stop - Tortuguero Island was very dirty with trash everywhere. My husband and I went on eight tours over a two wek span of time and this one was the worst.

My Review

Our guide (Victor) was very informative and helpful in ensuring that guests expectations were met. We saw much of the wildlife advertised and thoroughly enjoyed the tour. One word of caution is that the actual canopy tour is very physically challenging, requiring that high ladders be scaled to most of the zip line platforms.
