In both ports we took an excursion that we found at the dock. In Cartenaga we took one that went thru the old city, a lot of walking but worth it. And in Limon we took one that we went on a river cruise and went to a resturant, okay but would see if there others. We saved about $20 pp per excursion going on our own, maybe even more.

I went to the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, with Carnival tours. I loved it cause I'm an animal lover but I wanted to be able to touch the animals and they would not let us (liability from Carnival) I'm sure in case they would bite. Also I heard the Togargo Canals or something like that a boat tour is excellent also in Puerto Limon. Hope this helps.

After visiting Cartagena Columbia I would suggest you stay on the ship. I didn't feel safe at all there.
Limon we took the bus tour to San Jose, which was a really good tour!
Live life to the fullest because tomorrow may never come!
