Immersing yourself in the lush, lively, and laid-back vibe of Puerto Limón is easy and effortless when you book Costa Rica shore excursions. Whether you’re looking to explore a vast and mysterious rainforest that encompasses over 3,000 acres on the Caribbean side of the country, delve into the history and culture of the port city and environs, chill out at a peaceful beachside yoga retreat, or feed your foodie curiosity with farm-to-table travels, there are experiences to fit the bill.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica shore excursions to the Veragua Rainforest, often described as one of the most beautiful in the world, are a popular way to spend time ashore, and there are tours that cater to varied areas of interest. For a guided overview of the rainforest, board an open-air sky gondola and glide over the forest canopy as you hear about its fascinating biodiversity. Stroll along a jungle trail that ends in a spectacular two-tiered waterfall, visit a butterfly garden, and see a reptile exhibit.
From your cruise to the Caribbean and Costa Rica, take a full-day expedition to the rainforest that includes a jungle boat cruise with a naturalist guide. You’ll travel down the Tortuguero Canals, the “Little Amazon of Costa Rica,” and experience the rainforest’s incredible flora and fauna, including water lilies, raffia palms, banana and cocoa plants, many varieties of birds, sloths, caimans, howler monkeys, and more.
If you’re up for even more action on your cruise to Costa Rica, try an exhilarating zip-lining adventure and fly 265 feet above the rainforest floor and over the treetops on 11 different lines. You can also combine a nature walk and kayak trip or plunge into action on a whitewater rafting trip and paddle down the Reventazon River on Class I and II rapids.
Prefer a more low-key experience? Indulge in a day of yoga and wellness at La Amistad Conservation Area. Recharge with a yoga class on the beach, followed by relaxing on the sand as you listen to the sounds of the sea. Stroll the streets and enjoy the shopping at the nearby village of Puerto Viejo.
Animal lovers of all ages will delight in a visit to the Jaguar Rescue Center, where these beautiful animals (and birds, reptiles, amphibians, and small primates) are rehabilitated, cared for, and protected. Guided Puerto Limon, Costa Rica shore excursions that take you to banana plantations, cacao farms, or coffee mills combine tours and tastings with history and culture for informative, fun, food-centric experiences.
