Default Costa Rica Excursions

Have narrowed it down to Tortuguero Canals trip whihc always gets great reviews or the shorter boat ride from a resort (these are on Royal) Does anyone , maybe papa Bill, know any more about the resort boat ride--it is very generic in description--what resort is it from & does it also go to the Canals. It is about half the price & time as the other trip but if the two hr trip is the same area I'd be satified with the shorter one--just to get the flavor of the area...Not sure how well I will do in the humidity & heat....WE are panning to book the trips soon so any help in narrowing it down further will be appreciated. (saw a similar post recently but can't find it--so soorry if this is a repeat)

As you apparently know, I enjoyed the full Canal tour when we took it. Sorry, I do not know anything about the alternative trip.
Hope you enjoy your cruise.

We did a private Tortugera canal boat tour; we went to the tent on the pier at Limon with the tour sign with price. The highligts of the tour were a stop at a beach, the Canal boat tour (about an hour), a stop at the Dole Banana plantation, a stop to pet 3 toed sloths and monkies and a stop for me to buy coffee and vanila at a local supermarket. All for $35 per couple plus tip. We shared the car with another couple we met on board ship and had a wonderful day.
Bon Voyage

The very best tour I have ever done was in Costa Rica and was the White Water rafting.
