Take a shore excursion here as it is quite a run down place. We visited the Central Valley where all the coffee plantations are and the scenery changes to one that is very lush and green -coffee plantation tour was very interesting. Also visited village where the vibrantly decorated oxcarts are made

Caldera is a container port and a 15 min. cab ride to Puenarenas, which can only handle two ships, which is why we were stuck in Caldera, I assume! Very inconvenient!

Not much at the port. Take an excursion if you want to see anything. We took the Jungle Crocodile Safari. It was relaxing and we saw lots of birds and crocodiles. The snack afterwards was just a little fruit and coffee, but bathrooms were clean and dancers entertained us briefly.

Last day - the luggage had to be out of our room at 11:00 last night. We had breakfast (a full breakfast was offered) and waited for our bus transfer to the airport.

Not very clean. Trash all over side of roads. Mangrove River tour was okay. Thought there would be more jungle and monkeys and exotic birds. Just Crocodiles and iguanas and few birds.
