    What To Expect

    Meet your waiting driver in the morning when your cruise ship docks at the Limon port, and travel by minivan to a launch point on the Tortuguero Canal. Nicknamed ‘the Amazon of Costa Rica,’ this waterway winds though a protected biological reserve that’s home to a wildly diverse array of plant and animal life. Climb aboard a covered river boat, and cruise through the canal at a leisurely pace while a guide shares commentary on the rain forest ecosystem and helps you spot native creatures such as crocodiles, howler monkeys, sloths, iguanas, bats, and toucans.

    At the end of the canal cruise, take a short drive to the Jungle Breeze adventure park to begin your high-flying zipline tour. After a safety briefing from highly trained guides, gear up with provided equipment and climb to the first of 12 treetop platforms. From here, clip on to a series of 11 cables and let go to soar across the rain forest canopy at exhilarating speeds, taking in stellar views of the Caribbean along the way.

    After the fifth platform, the cables become increasingly longer, reaching a maximum length of 885 feet (270 meters) and heights of up to 263 feet (80 meters). If that's a bit beyond your comfort zone, there is an opportunity to finish the tour early and return to base camp at platforms 5 and 7. When you return to solid ground, transfer back to your waiting cruise ship in the afternoon.

    Tortuguero Canal

    The canals that lead to the Tortuguero National Park begin in the Puerto Moin sector, just 5 miles from the center of the Limon province. This moin sector has small docks for small boats that make the trip along the Caribbean coast, until they reach their final point in Barra de Colorado. This system of natural and artificial canals made by man, are a tourist attraction because it runs through beautiful sectors of forests, small towns and offers a perfect opportunity to admire a large number of wild animals such as monkeys, sloths, iguanas, alligators, waterfowl and many more.

    1 hour 30 minutesAdmission Ticket Included

    Puerto Limon

    Would recommend the tour!
    Scott_N, Mar 2023
    Steven was an excellent tour guide! Only me and my fiancé booked the excursion and he picked us up and basically gave us a private tour. He was kind and fun and showed us lots of cool things native to Costa Rica. Would def recommend!

    Fantastic Excursion
    Kim_C, Mar 2023
    A brilliant excursion combining the thrill of a great zip lining set up through the rain forest and a magical trip on the boat seeing wildlife up close and personal and being given great information from our guide. Cannot thank our guide Ariel and driver Hector who went above and beyond to ensure we had a magnificent day visiting Costa Rica. Would totally recommend this tour.

    Zipline and baby sloth saved this excursion.
    Andrew_V, Jan 2023
    Booked an excursion in Costa Rica for Ziplining and boat tour of the canal through Viator. Greenway was on time for pick up and drop off but the driver was horrible and the guide was silent most of the ride. The Zipline tour was fantastic! The guides were helpful, kind and energetic which was great! The driver hit/ran over every pothole and bump when some could have been avoided. The spare tire ending up falling off the van due to the crappy driving. Our 1 hour boat “tour” consisted of the boat captain driving us into a bunch of trees to find a crocodile, getting stuck, then driving over to a turtle on a rock and getting stuck on a log, then going back to the pickup point to pick up more passengers. There was no tour. The ONLY reason it was salvaged was by getting to hold a 3 month old baby sloth. I wouldn’t recommend booking a tour with this company.

    A very enjoyable day in Limon
    Tom_H, Jan 2023
    I would definitely recommend this tour for folks arriving on cruises. It was a much smaller group (10 people). At the first stop, my wife & I were the only 2 in our group that were doing the Zipline Canopy Tour. Our small group arrived at the same time as a large bus load of zipliners from the cruise ship. We went to the front of the line and had transportation back to the top were the rest of our group was taking a nature tour. We didn't have to wait for all the cruise tour busload to finish. From there we went to the Tortuguero Canal Boat tour. This felt like the Jungle Boat tour from Disney (haha). We saw sloth (including getting to hold and pet a baby), monkeys and other wild life. Very relaxing. We then stopped briefly at a beach bar and bought a cold cerveza and enjoyed the surf. Then our guide, Carlos, and driver, Gato, took us to the high point over looking Limon to a restaurant called Red Snapper. The view a beautiful and my wife & I shared a delicious red snapper plate that also had cocoanut rice & beans and fried plantains. All in all, a very enjoyable day in Limon.

    Tour guide not properly trained
    jis, Jan 2023
    Our guide (Michelli) was along for the ride. I believe she was new with the company and although she has lived in Costa Rica her entire life, she sat on the bus mostly in silence. Perhaps the company should have trained her properly. We got to the zip line (which was great). Michellli gave us no direction as to the next steps, the bathrooms, waivers, etc. The bus driver (Marvin) got lost and had to ask for directions and drove fast down the bumpy dirt road. Rough ride going there, better coming back. When we got to the zip line, the driver went to park the bus. After we all got off the bus with our stuff, we later learned that our stuff needed to be stored in the bus. Michelli left her phone in the bus so she couldn’t contact the driver to return. We finally got to zipline. We had a great time ziplining as that company was very well organized. Then off to the boat tour. The boat driver handed the mic to Michelli. Unfortunately she didn’t use it the entire trip. Very disappointed as we didn’t learn anything from the guide about Costa Rica, zip lining or the canals.

    Thank you for your review. Unfortunately on this date we gave the opportunity to a local guide to bring the group to Veragua. It was her first time and normally we support local people to make carrier in the travel industry as a guide. This tour was a very easy one due just have to bring the group to Veragua, where professional guides at the property get in charge of the groups. We are sorry for the inconvenience and this guide is not longer with our company due the lack of professionalism she show up during the tour.
    Zip line and canal ride
    Sallie_C, Jan 2023
    I did interesting ride through Costa Rica in order to find the zip lining location. So interesting to see all the different neighborhoods and the rainforest. The zip lining staff are friendly and helpful and kind. We all felt very safe and enjoyed seeing the rain forest from the canopy. The boat ride was so fascinating to see all the different flora and fauna along the canal. We were lucky to catch a small mom with her cub, monkeys, a small caiman, and some giant lizards or iguanas.So much fun!!

    Hi We really appreciate your review about our tour. Thank you so much for taking the time to post it.
    Great excursion
    joseph_h, Dec 2022
    Wonderful tour. Zip line was fun. Tour guide was awesome. Canal boat ride was ok, or much wildlife to look at, not natures fault. If I was to do it all over I’d do the zip line then do the rainforest walk and skip the canal boat tour. Awesome excursion.

    One of the best excursions we’ve ever taken
    dmm24kt, Feb 2020
    Renata, who took us to each part of the tour, was one of the best (if not THE best) tour guide we ever had! His friendliness, knowledge, and willingness to accommodate was far beyond the norm. His English was perfect and almost completely unaccented. The zip line portion of the tour had me concerned at first because the zip line guides seemed to send the next client down the line before the last one had arrived. However, the lines were among the longest and fastest we have ever done so there was never any close proximity between clients. And after about the third line the spacing between the clients always resulted in the arrival of the previous client before the next one was sent down the line. Guides were consistently thorough and systematic in safety practices hooking and unhooking clients from the lines. While Renato did not accompany us on the zip lines themselves, he did accompany us on the canal excursion and greatly enhanced the experience through his knowledge and commentary on the environment and wildlife.(He even asked at one point if he talked too much but I assured him that we were learning so much that “too much” was not possible!)

    Zipline and canal tour
    Pam-Darrell, Nov 2019
    Rain and wind made the zipline operator cancel. We received no partial refund. Canal tour was just OK as we were in the back of the boat and couldn't hear well. Engine noise in back was loud and tour guide did not have a microphone. Whole tour was cut short and no compensation was offered. It was not theirs or our fault for the weather, but we should get a partial refund.
    Response from Host, Nov 2019
    Hello Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we do not have control of weather conditions and yes, this day was raining so much. Our guides should cancel all activities, but they just try to accommodate something for offer you an experience in Costa Rica. Our guides didn´t offer any compensation due they are not the persons in charge of this. It is handled in our main office in San Jose. And it is not true we will not compensate. We have contacted Viator and requested them to refund 50% of the tour. We really wanted all our clients have a great day in Limon Costa Rica, but once again, nature didn´t help us on this particular day and time. It was a situation totally out of our control. The zipline was cancelled for obvious reasons. We never will put our clients in risk if the weather conditions are not the best ones.

    This was a very fun and exhilarating experience! The crew who take care of you are excellent and know exactly what to do and how to keep you safe. We were up in the trees, speeding through the forest. This was the first time I have ever done a zipline, and I would definitely go back to work with these guys.

    Our tour guide did a great job of talking to use about what we were seeing, she was well versed in the animal life and culture. She actually added a short stop at a banana plantation as an extra. This was a high light of our trip. The river tour was amazing and we had so much fun on the zip line.
