We loved our trip to Tortuguero National Park. Our guide, Luis, did a great job making every part of the trip informative and entertaining with jokes or facts about the location we were in. We saw some amazing animals on our boat ride too - definitely worth the price and a great experience overall.
This tour was excellent. I recommend it to everybody. The tour guide was very informative and cordial. He explained everything. It was nice looking at the places were the turtles go. Unfortunately, we went during the day when there are no turtles. Turtles come out at night.
Pretty good day trip out to Tortuguero, with lots of opportunities for wildlife sighting and just enough free time to keep it interesting, since it is not sea turtle season.
This tour was amazing!
This is an awesome tour. The boat ride through canal is amazing and you get to see a good variety of wildlife. Driver and Guide go out of the way to make your trip memorable. Worth the money.
What an amazing experience!! We traveled for about an hour and then had a breakfast of eggs, beans and rice, fruit, coffee, and toast! Our tour guide was wonderful to show us as many animals as he could find. We saw a momma and baby sloth and several monkeys as well as many different species of birds. Our trip down the river was peaceful and the rain forest was amazing. After a buffet lunch at the Evergreen Lodge and a walking tour of the village, we traveled back to our hotel in San Jose by boat and bus! The tour was worth everything we paid for it!
This tour is an ALL DAY tour. We were picked up bright and early at 5:25 AM. After picking everyone else up, we headed out of town. About an hour into the trip we stopped for an excellent Costa Rican breakfast of Gallo Pinto, fruit, scrambled eggs, coffee and juice. Before we boarded the bus, our tour guide showed us all a pair of blue jeans tree frogs in the plants out in front of the restaurant. Everyone took pictures and we hit the road. Farther down the road our guide had the bus stop and we all got out to find that he had spotted an mother sloth and baby hanging out in a tree only about 5 feet up next to the road. Once again, we were able to get some really good pictures, and have a very close encounter with the pair We left them alone, just oooohed and aaaaaahed alot. Back on the bus and on to the boat ride to Tortuguero. We saw several different kinds of animals on the ride, the best being a small flock of green Macaws that flew overhead. Tortuguero was not what we expected, but it was a neat little town, definitely driven by tourism since the original industry, banana farming, is long gone. Back on the boat and up the canal a little farther to lunch at one of the resorts in the area. Lunch was buffet style with plenty of options, and all of them were tasty. After lunch we ran into a spider monkey in the trees outside the dining hall eating his lunch. Out came the cameras, and then it was time to load up on the boat and head back to the bus and the ride back to San Jose.
Our tour guide German pronounced Herman and bus driver were excellent. Providing lots of insight and history about the areas we drove through. We are planning on going back to stay for a few days some time in the future, but if you only have a day, I highly recommend this tour.

This was an amazing tour. I am very glad that we chose to do it. It gave us the opportunity to see more of Costa Rica and the national park. The guide was great and the lunch was amazing.
Our tour guide was German, he was pretty funny and always tried to please the tourists. He had a lot of knowledge about his country and he spoke English and Spanish during the tour. We enjoyed a really good breakfast and lunch; it was delicious. At Tortuguero, we saw cocodriles, alligators and sloth
The tour is well described by the tour information and the comments from those who have taken it. It was a great tour, but if you visit during the nesting season for the turtles September-October you should stay for at least one night if possible. You don't get to see any turtles on the day trip. It was a fairly long trip form San Jose to the park, and of course the same going back. But it was worth it.
