We loved this excursion! Jesus and Victor tool fabulous care of us. Jesus was extremely knowledgeable and made the learning fun and interesting. He planned so that we missed the large crowds and had places to our little group. The day was a little rainy and he adjusted the tour to make our time more meaningful and fitting to our interest. We would highly recommend this tour and would tour with Jesus again in heartbeat.

An absolutely perfect day. Jesus Mora was the best guide we have every had on a shore excursion. We are a family of 2 parents and 2 11 year olds and had the best day and saw soooo many things in such a short period. You do not want to miss this trip if you are cruising into Limon. Definitely try to get Jesus Mora as the guide.

Jesus, Alan and Christian were above and beyond amazing!! Super knowledgeable and passionate about their country and helped us see sloths, monkeys, birds, a Cayman, frogs, and lizards! They explained everything to us very clearly. I highly recommend this tour, 6 in 1 tour. We ended our trip becoming friends with them all! Thanks again!!

The guide Jesus was excellent. He is professional, knowledgeable, environmentalist and courteous. He showed us everything on list in detail with explanation and brought us back to our princess Caribbean before time. Jesus grew up in Limon so he knows everything about this area. Jesus you made our Limon visit very interesting and comfortable.

We visited Limon, Banana Plantation and drive into countryside. Jesus was our guide and Victor was our driver. Jesus grew up in area and knew everything about area. He gave us facts about Port of Limon. We stopped at a small beach for a short visit mainly photo op. We went for a boat tour of Tortugas Canals. Jesus was expert at spotting sloths, iguanas and exotic birds. He was able to point them all out to us.We drove through banana plantation With the small bus we were in we were able to drive into banana plantation and Jesus got out and picked up some cut plants and partial bananas off ground. We got a close up view of the plants. The large bus cruise ship tours couldn't make trip down narrow roads so we got a much better view than cruise ship tour groups.When we got to rain forest Jesus was in his element. He caught a couple of exotic frogs and spiders so we could get a close up picture of these items. He was passionate about protecting and conserving nature.We stopped at a small fruit stand/ souvenir shop on way back to town. I bought a whole pineapple and had then slice it up. It was so fresh and so good.I would return again and specifically ask for Jesus as my tour guide

This was one of the best excursion / tours that we have taken! Jesus our tour guide worked with us on the stops and were were able to see more of the country within the same time. Your tour will begin outside the port gate and you will get a chance to see the country through the eyes of locals. Because it was a small group, our van was able to get into places that tour buses would not have been able to get to. We stopped on the side of the roads as our guide Jesus would tell us about the animals. We spotted mostly the sloths on the side of the roads. He would also tell us about the plants that grew in the area. The banana plantation stop was very interesting and he showed us the flowers that would end up as bananas and what the blue bags were. The river cruise was the best, we were able to see spider monkeys, a yellow viper, crocodiles, caimans, crabs, and different types of birds. Because we were a small private group we had a smaller boat that allowed us to get deeper into the tall grass and see them up close. The beach stop was OK, the water was refreshing but there is a Rip current that prevented most from going out far. The beach is the only beach there so we went there first instead of last, again a bonus if you have a small private tour like this. The buses brought the rest in the afternoon. The beach is dirty and you can see beer bottles in the sand, wear your beach shoes or sandals. We had a bonus stop added, the jungle walk by a mountain road. Because we had a small group our van was able to get through a metal bridge that brought us by a mountain road. There we walked with Jesus who caught poisonous red frogs and the green and black dart frogs which is also poisonous. Prior to us walking Jesus gave us reminders not to handle or touch anything unless he was the one to give it to us because of the dangers. We took lots of pictures of the animals and finally when to the fruit stand for some fresh fruits which were wonderful. We really enjoyed this tour and our guide Jesus. The people are laid back and like to enjoy life.
