The drive to the rain forest was over an hour and almost two hours on the return with an unscheduled shop at a cheesy souvenir shop. Made for an overly long tour. Overpriced for not including lunch.

We took the rainforest tour with Ivan! A bus ride through the countryside of Costa Rica to the rainforest for a bit of a wild and a part "zoo-like" experience (to see the dangerous animals). A butterfly house, ride on a tram through the canopy and then a walk to a waterfall. A lovely day to introduce us to Costa Rica - I want to go back! Read Less

Veragua Rainforest, Tortuguero Canals, and Lunch - not worth the money. Canal boat tour was ok - spotted lots of animals, birds, couple sloths. Tour at Veragua Rainforest was extremely slow - could have done it in half the time. Aerial tramway very disappointing - just transports you from higher up to lower down the "mountain" - there is a walk to a waterfall at the bottom you can do. Then take the tram back up the hill. Was not a ride through the rainforest canopy that i was expecting. Read Less

We decided to go all out in Costa Rica. Costco didn't offer any options for this port so we had to book through Norwegian. To make sure we got to do everything we just went ahead and booked the Rainforest Extravaganza. It was a bus tour to the rainforest with an excellent guide. He was very friendly and informative. We don't usually like big groups and even though this was a nice time the lack of autonomy and repeated herding detracted a bit from the experience. But the rainforest was beautiful and we took a small gondola ride to a wonderful waterfall. There were other paths we wish we could have explored, but because of the timing and our tour, we weren't given the time. The only other thing about Costa Rica is that were were extremely surprised how poor and depressed the area was. While we know there isn't much money there - the area just seemed devastated.

He only charged us for what we did, not for what was originally planned, and was honest to a fault. Like the Cartagena tour, I highly recommend this operator. Read Less
