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.

This tour was amazing! We especially enjoyed the river cruise and seeing the crocodiles.The monkey stop was awesome as well. Only wish on the fruit tasting that it wasn't the usual fruits I could get anywhere. We would have liked to have tried something different. Food was great at our lunch stop. Our guide Jesus and the driver (can't remember his name) were great! Would highly recommend this tour.
Enjoyed our Costa Rica tour. Adonis and Charles tried really hard to make sure we saw as much as possible. Enjoyed lunch on your. They both were good ambassadors of Costa Rica

We had such an enthusiastic guide at our Costa Rica location. We did a river cruise to view the crocodiles and the boat driver was a crazy young man who dangle chicken legs at the crocodiles. We had a very good lunch, learned much about the economy, sampled fruit, and drank rum/sugar cane shots. A very enjoyable afternoon.

Wild monkeys, lots of close up crocodiles, lots of different species of birds, a nice traditional Costa Rican lunch, a good scenic drive, stops for shopping, and very pleasant, knowledgeable guides. They took lots of time for everything. All in all, we had a great day.
This is a trip not to miss. It’s absolutely fabulous. First part was a trip to the monkeys where you get close up and feed them if you want. A great experience. Later the boat trip with crocodiles and wildlife was amazing. The crocodiles get close up and you can get great pictures, but don’t lean out of the boat too much as they are quite snappy! So many birds to look at, and with a great guide, you were given the names of these. I have never seen so many different birds anywhere like here. I can’t say praise enough for this tour enough, it had everything you wanted to see on it and close up. The views on the tour bus were excellent too. Finally a great guide.
