Our experience
Sofia_A, Apr 2024
We were pleased with the level of service and the day itself. However, we did not receive the bottles of water that were requested. The driver was nice and polite. There was not enough information about the park, about the country, or some interesting facts, but overall everything was wonderful! The minibus was quite comfortable as well. We recommend this excursion and this operator. They are a reliable company, so you can be calm about your choice!
The driver is excellent, but there is tour guide. We have enjoyed the trip, however.

A long drive to Tortuguero National Park. Not many animals to be visible, but it still worth the trip to have an experience there. The driver is very good.
Driver and his buddy were...

Driver and his buddy were both cool! Buddy was a bit talkative, but all in good vibes. Be ready for long trip to Caribbean coast, 3 hours minimum each way. Outside of that, pleasant trip. Pura Vida!

Great Guide, No Turtles, Everything Closed on Fathers Day. Overall, the circumstances for the trip had nothing to do with our guide or even the planned activities. The boat rides were phenomenal.
