Know More about this tour

Known as Costa Rica's Amazon because of its surrounding rain forest, the Tortuguero Canal region is rich with exotic flora and fauna.

Board your covered boat for a leisurely cruise through the jungle canals. Your guide explains the rain forest eco-system and points out sights of interest. Keep an eye out for wildlife including howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, bats, aquatic birds, iguanas and crocodiles as well as exotic flora. At the end of your cruise, board your waiting transportation for the short transfer to Brisas de la Jungla, where an interesting nature walk and visit into the rain forest awaits for you.

La Jungla Trail offers a 1 km trek through a secondary forest offering beautiful landscapes, various flora and fauna, and including many opportunities to see the remarkably fascinating different frog species of Costa Rica, such as the red dart frog (dendrobates pumillo).
Inside the trail, among the abundant fauna, visitors may witness the 3 toed sloths and see the different species of birds: Toucans, Oropendola, Tanagers, Hummingbirds, kiskidees, squirrels, and the majestic butterflies that swarm through the trail. The creeks which appear during the trail, add a crisp freshness to the air, yet more importantly enable the reproduction of many of the organisms living there. For example these creeks create the perfect atmosphere for the various types of frogs you will encounter, allowing the perfect place for egg laying.
You will witness the beautiful flora, such as the epiphytes, orchids and bromeliads as well as other ground level plants with various sized leaves appearing in their plenty. The different species of trees ranging from young to old, small to large, serve as homes to many of the creatures being large mammals to tiny insects. These trees as you will witness are also adorned by the lianas that hang from the branches.

After the tour, enjoy complementary fruits and get that special gift you are looking for in the souvenirs store.

On the way back you will enjoy a short city tour before the drop off at the pier.

    Very interesting , saw some wild animals

  • 22-Jan-2017

    Guide was informative and enthusiastic on hike and boat tour. Smaller and fewer reptiles than the ones we saw on Pacific coast a couple of years ago. Perhaps if there was a speed limit on the river, more animals would be inclined to hang around the river banks. A nice tour if you've never travelled before but expensive based on previous tours

    The tour consisted of a 1 hour boat ride, 1 mile hike in the rainforrest and a visit to the banana plantation. We really booked this tour for the banana plantation as we were on the boat and visited a rainforest the day prior. But, low and behold, while on the bus, the guide told us that Dole banana plantation was not open. He pulled over on the side of the road, picked a banana and did a show and tell in the bus......I am convinced that they knew ahead of time that the itinerary was not going to be honored, they should have let people know so that we would have had the option of booking another tour. This was the only day we were in Costa Rica, and I would have liked to have seen more than the howler monkeys and ants.....ALSO, at the end of five hours, we were hoping to return to the ship...tired, grimey, but the guide needed to take us to a restaurant. This was the last stop, and we all could have eaten lunch for free at the ship, but it seemed as though he promised the restaurant to bring the group......It was very uncalled for, especially since lunch was not included in the tour.....The tour itself started out great....guide was knowledgeable and funny, but it got progressively worse as the day went on.....I would ask alot of questions before you book with this company again.
