Known as Costa Rica's Amazon because of its surrounding Limon rain forest, the Tortuguero Canal region is uniquely rich with exotic flora and fauna.
Board your covered boat for a leisurely cruise through the jungle canals. Your guide explains the rain forest eco-system and points out sights of interest. Keep an eye out for wildlife including howler monkeys, sloths, toucans, bats, aquatic birds, iguanas and crocodiles as well as exotic flora. At the end of your cruise, board your waiting transportation for the short transfer to Brisas de la Jungla, where an interesting visit into the Limon rain forest awaits for you.
La Jungla Trail offers 1k walk through the heart of the famous Costa Rica rainforest, along with a naturalist tour guide providing interesting information about the unique ecosystem. This part of the Limon Highlights Excursion offers beautiful landscapes, various flora and fauna, and opportunities to see the remarkably fascinating different frog species of Costa Rica, such as the red dart frog.
Inside the trail, among the abundant fauna visitors may witness the 3 toed sloths and see the different species of birds: Toucans, Oropendola, Tanagers, Hummingbirds, Kiskidees and much much more! You may also encounter squirrels and the majestic butterflies that swarm though the trail. Don't forget your camera! The creeks that run along the trail provide not only crispness to the air but also the perfect environment for the various frog species living there to lay eggs.
You will also see beautiful flora such as the epiphytes, orchids and bromeliads. There are trees of all sizes from seedlings to giant towering ones that are home to many creatures from tiny insects to large mammals.
After the tour, enjoy complementary fruits and coffee and get that special gift you are looking for in the souvenir store. On the way back to the pier, a short city tour is included before the drop off at the pier.
