Our tour guide Juan was amazing! So knowledgeable and fun. He made sure we saw everything we wanted to. Great driver too- he was safe and got us back to the ship in plenty of time. Highly recommend!

Misrepresented - not really about chocolate
Gretchen_B, Feb 2023
This excursion is misrepresented. It says you will taste chocolates (chocolateS plural) from around Costa Rica, which you do not (only one). It says you will make your own chocolate bar, which you do not. It says there is a "chocolate creation lab" but there is not. This was an interesting tour but chocolate was a very tiny part of it - less than 10 minutes for us to mostly watch them make some hot cocoa. No bars. The tour guide was very good and we did enjoy it but we were really excited about the chocolate part and that was a big let down. The transportation was great and air conditioned. They took us to a great spot for lunch (although it was very expensive tourist prices). The stop for fruit was really not a thing (more like a gas station) and we opted not to do the banana plantation thing bc we saw the fields from the car and that was really all it was. Overall I don't think I'd do this one again since the chocolate wasn't what it was represented to be.
Amazing Excursion!

Enrique, our guide, was magnificent! We were given several opportunities to enjoy the local populace and sights, making it more intimate. Definitely would do this tour again, and I’d request Enrique!

Great times in Puerto Viejo
Errol_P, Dec 2021
Witnessing the process of chocolate being made from scratch was an awesome experience. Our tour guide, Larry, was knowledgeable about the local history and landmarks. He was accommodating, funny, and friendly. Gigi, the driver, was a treat as well and kept us safe. All in all, this was a relaxing excursion filled with fun!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
We appreciate your review! It was a pleasure to serve you on the chocolate tour and that you enjoyed it!
Costa Rica hautnah erleben
Tobias_B, Apr 2023
Es war ein toller Ausflug im Kleinbus, zu dritt, mit Fahrer und einem netten Guide, welcher sehr gut englisch sprach. Der Empfang am Cruise-Terminal in Puerto Limón war professionell und herzlich, wir haben Land und Leute hautnah kennengelernt, einheimische Früchte gekostet und konnten sogar Wünsche fürs Mittagessen äußern, was sehr authentisch war. Zum Schluss hat uns der Fahrer direkt an der Gangway zum Schiff rausgelassen. Wir können diesen Ausflug nur empfehlen und haben jeden Moment genossen.
