Tour Overview

Board your air-conditioned transportation for a drive through the city of Limon and its countryside. The province of Limon covers an area of approximately 14,702 square miles. With a total population of 169,000, many of Limon's residents are descendants from Jamaica that were originally brought here to build the railroad, and after it was completed, these Jamaicans stayed in the area to work on the cacao and banana plantations.

Pass by lush tropical forests, plantations, and small towns on the way to the dock at Pachira where you'll embark on a tour of the Tortuguero Canals. As you cruise the canal in your covered boat, keep your eyes open for the abundance of wildlife, such as sloths, white-faced spider monkeys and howler monkeys, crocodiles and many waterfowl species. After returning to the dock, you'll be served a seasonal fruit buffet and tropical refreshments accompanied by live calypso music. Afterwards, re-board your transportation for the short drive to the train stop where you'll depart on an open-air train for a journey through the scenic countryside. The train made its first trip in 1890, which gave birth to the banana industry. Upon arrival at the stop, you will re-board your transportation and head back to the ship via a scenic coastal road.
