We took a bus tour from a salesman out by the end of the pier. We went to feed the monkeys, see the crocodile and to a rainforest garden. We paid $25 each. The ship excursion was $115 each. We stopped at the same places.

Beautiful country and incredibly friendly people. Excellent local food. Tour guides are extremely knowledgeable. This was one of my favorite ports in our Panama Canal cruise. Pura Vida!

This port is gorgeous. It’s like a tropical paradise. There is a small animal santuary right in the port that you can visit for free which is beautiful, lots of birds and local wildlife there. Most people do not swim on the beach, we were told the sewage system is not the best in this port so we avoided swimming. We did the Scenic Train Ride and River Cruise tour. The train is very rustic, as they want you to experience the way it was 100 years ago, lol. The river cruise was similar to the one we did in Colombia, as it also went through mangroves. We seen some wildlife, but not as much as in previous tours. I was surprised by how much garbage is strewn around in Costa Rica. Would highly recommend a tour from the ship, would not go out on my own in this place.
