Description

Get introduced to the most fascinating aspects of Tortuguero, from historic Puerto Limon to the flourishing National Park, on this private tour down the coast. Along the way, visit a sloth sanctuary, learn agriculture at a banana plantation, and enjoy gorgeous views of the pristine coast.

Begin your tour in Puerto Limon, where Christopher Columbus first landed in Costa Rica just off the shore. In the old quarter of the city, learn about the area's historic character, including its thriving Afro-Caribbean culture. From Puerto Limon, begin driving down the coast, arriving first at a sloth sanctuary dedicated to the care and rehabilitation of rescued sloths. Learn all about the unique physiology and behaviors of sloths on a guided tour of the sanctuary, then bid the gentle creatures farewell.

Your next stop is a banana plantation. Costa Rica is the world's second-largest banana producer, and Limon is home to nearly 80 per cent of its plantations. As you learn about the industry and agriculture of bananas, you can also gain insight into Limon's unique culture. Continue driving along the coast, enjoying spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, before arriving in Tortuguero National Park for a boat ride through its flourishing canals. This scenic, wildlife-filled cruise is a beautiful and eye-opening conclusion to your tour before you're returned to Puerto Limon.
