Depart from Adventure Inn accompanied by your bilingual naturalist guide. After the coffee plantations, we'll head over the Central Valley mountains into Braulio Carrillo National Park where steep slopes are covered with thick cloud forest and beautiful waterfalls can be seen from the road. After the park, we stop for a typical Costa Rican breakfast, fresh fruit, coffee, eggs and the popular gallo pinto.
We continue on to a Banana Plantation, where we visit a banana packing plant. Your guide will explain the process of growing, cutting, carrying out of the plantations on overhead tracks, assorting, cleaning and exporting the fruit.
We later embark on the most exiting part of this tour: the boat trip into the jungle on the calm Caribbean canals of world famous Tortuguero National Park. Stop to listen for howler monkeys, see crocodiles basking in the sun, or a tame cayman coming up to the boat looking for a snack, colorful exotic birds, untold iguanas, so much rich life around every turn in the canals.
We will enjoy a hearty, typical lunch to please the hungriest of appetites the after we will take a tour the laid-back village of Tortuguero with no cars, no roads, and where you will have a chance to interact with the local people as you walk on the beach and through the paths joining the village.
Finally, we get back in the boat, take it through more canals to the bus, and head back to San José and Adventure Inn, making a rest stop along the way and arriving around 6:30 pm.
