Default Puerto Limon Costa Rica

Was wondering if anyone has been to Costa Rica before and have taken any of the shore excursions. What is the best thing to do there?

Carol, We have not been there, but we are going in April this year.The ships have tours, Tortugero Canals, San Jose City tour, Aerial Tram tour of rain foredy, Costa Flores, and River Rafting, white water rapids. There probably many more, there is taxi service available called publitaxis. They can pick you up at the pier and do what ever you want. I emailed them ffor info, they did respond, but their English is as bad as my Spanish. Thier email address is publitaxis@publitaxis.com Good luck. Bob Boucek

Carol,
If you are into flowers the trip to Costa Flores would be the one to pick. They have a website that is very good. They are the biggest flower farm anywhere, at least that is what I was told. If you do this let us know when you return what you thought.

I sailed on the Regent Sea twelve years ago and we stopped I believe at Puerto Limon. My friend and I chose to do the excursion that involved riding a narrow gauge train through the countryside and arriving at a banana plantation. Somewhere we stopped at a place with a pool and a there was a lunch set out for us which was also near the beach. Don't know if this type of trip is still available or not, but we enjoyed it. The train was old and pretty neat.
