Excellent Experience
January 06, 2020
This excursion included a boat ride down the Tortuguero Canal and a visit to a banana plantation. The tour leader was exceptional. It was apparent that he loved his country. He shared many facts about Costa Rica. We saw quite a bit of wildlife on the boat. We were only able to go to the entrance to the banana plantation but it was still interesting.
