Best of Costa Rica
See the best Costa Rica has to offer on this informative and cultural tour. This adventure will take you around town trying out local bites, getting up close and personal with wildlife, doing some shopping, and much more. If you want the full Costa Rica experience, this is it.
Your tour starts with an introduction to the local creatures. Upon arriving at a private wildlife area, you'll get to see the white-faced monkeys that call Costa Rica home. This is nature at its purest form. Expect to see these creatures jump around, play, and otherwise interact with one another.
From there, you'll make your way to the local "fruit towns," which live up to their name. Here, there are plenty of tropical fruits to taste and you'll receive them directly from the hands of the farmers. Afterward, you'll hop on a pontoon boat and do some exploration down the Tarcoles River, where there are crocodiles, herons, and other critters all around you.
Experiencing all of these activities may make you hungry. At this point of the tour, you will take a break for lunch (included) before finishing your tour with a little bit of shopping at various stores including a Costa Rican supermarket; make sure to pick up some coffee before you leave. Once you're done shopping, the tour proceeds to Puntarenas. It's here that you'll meet with your cruise ship, bringing your journey to an end.

Would recommend this tour. The boat trip was great. Our guide was VERY knowledgeable. His explanations of birds, animals, and history, were great. Liked the very good lunch of native dishes too.

This was one of the best excursions we have been on. Jesus, our tour guide, was absolutely excellent. He was very knowledgeable and created memorable moments. The inclusion of a bus and boat ride was perfect. And the lunch was delicious!

Jesus was an excellent guide, and Jose was a wonderful driver. The tour included a bus ride where we had an opportunity to stop and see the native monkeys. Then we took a boat ride on the Tarcoles River where we saw amazing birds, crocs, observed the tides and took lots of pictures. We continued to a buffet lunch in an atrium of a lovely hotel. It was an absolutely wonderful day!

This was a great day exploring the high lights of Costa Rica. Viewing wild monkeys near the road, and up close in our boat with large crocodiles, seeing many species of wild birds, we had far more experiences with wildlife than I had imagined. Our tour bus and guide were a surprise too. Nice day, punctuated with a nice local lunch.
