We had a very fun day in Puntarenas on the 8 in 1 Gio Tour. Unfortunately, we were unable to do all of the activities planned due to the traffic congestion caused by it being Easter holiday weekend, and that there were 2 cruise ships in town at the same time. Jesus, our guide, discussed the concerns, so together we... More

Ten out of ten to our guide Assus, this tour took in white faced monkeys, an absolute highlight and fantastic experience to get so close to nature, also included a river boat ride with lots of close up sightings of crocodiles and other wildlife. Delicious lunch included at a local cafe and of course souvenir shopping. Great value tour.

Yes- sounds like an excellent choice for cruise ship passengers. But, the 8-1 tour is a bit of a false lead. The so called "fresh fruit stand testing" is really a stop at a rest stop and store that sells fruit and made to order smoothies (at an elevated cost in $US dollars). There is no testing, unless of course... More

There were about 20 in our tour, so they put us in 2 large, air-conditioned vans, each with its own driver & guide. After a quick tour of the city, we headed to the Tortuguero Canal.
