What people are saying about Half-day Tours in Puntarenas

Rainforest Skywalk & Tarcoles River Eco Cruise Tour Puntarenas Shore excursion
"This tour was great! I have cruised many times but this is the first time I ever booked an independent shore excursion. This company and tour did not disappoint. The instructions said not to exit the pier and we would be picked up right outside the gangway. Didn’t see anyone so we walked to the port exit and the tour guide was waiting holding a board with my name in it. We loaded the van with only a group of 12. Drive was about 30 minutes. Stopped for the restroom before going to skywalk. After the skywalk, stopped for a fruit and juice snack before heading to the Tarcoles River. Loaded a boat and off to see the crocodiles. We were able to see lots of them. Another bathroom stop, and then because we had extra time, we stopped for lunch (so good…not included in price of tour) and then a place to do some shopping. Had us back to the ship in plenty of time. Better than any cruise ship shore excursion that I have ever taken."..."

Monteverde Cloud Forest Waterfalls, Wild Trekking and Horseback Riding
"This is the BEST Monteverde hike! It is breathtakingly beautiful and just when you think it can’t get any better, you move to an even more fantastic location! There were stunning waterfalls, rope and wood suspension bridges that seemed right out of a scene from Jumanji. We swam in a pool of crystal clear fresh water and sunbathed on the rocks while gazing up at the towering trees of the rainforest. Spectacular! We finished the hike with a horseback ride back up out of the valley and walked into an awesome restaurant with a wall of windows overlooking the rolling hills from Lake Arenal to the Arenal Volcano! Brilliant!"..."
