Out tour started at 12pm ,we then proceeded to the banna plantation wheir our guide Jeremy described the various fauna and flowers in the area,and how many snakes red and yellow will kill a fellow coral snake.At the banna farms we noticed blue plastic on all of the bannas,we were told this was to keep the insects and pesticides away from the fruit. I asked if all the bannas were all sprayed as some our sold in the stores back home as certified organic.He replied he was not absolutely sure.We then proceeded to the banna train two coaches and a engine we proceeded threw the plantation stopping to see sloth and howler monkeys in the trees.LIQUIDS and plantain chips were provide as it was very hot and humid.You have to breath a lot of diesel fumes as the stack on the locomotive is to low and comes back into the coaches,we then met our bus and the airconditioning felt grand,back onboard by 430pm.

Closed on Sunday, not much to see, but tasted some product and heard a little explanation on the banana industry in Costa Rica. Please note at the port, there is a small bulding with all kinds of shopping from a lively bar, washrooms, local coffee, all sorts of clothing, souveiners of all kinds, massages etc. fully stocked with merchendise,but building is secured and only vehicular traffic is allowed in and out, that is secured which means, no excursion, no exit for you, you must remain in the secured area in port.

Again interesting and enlightening : the Plantation information was very interesting will never look at a banana in the same way again.
Train journey was an eye opener from the 'houses ' with no roof or walls except mud but the Satellite Dish was in pride of place. The Flora and Forna and the birds and animals were interesting and beautiful

Really very interesting to see a Del Monte banana plantation from the time the bananas are pulled in the assembly line. From the sorting to the washing and labeling of the banana. Our bus driver even stopped and picked up small 3 inch bananas for us to peel and try.

We saw one of the many banana plantations. There were rows of banana trees. We visited the packing operation and witnessed the bananas being processed and packed for shipping. We were educated about the growing, packing, and transportation of bananas. Very interesting.
