We took this quick trip (1 hour) down the Tortuguero when we ported into Costa Rica. Its about a 20 minute drive from the Cruise terminal and we met with the people outside and managed to negotiate 30.00pp for 2 people. It was an interesting riverboat ride. We did end up seeing sloth's, monkey's, beautiful birds, and other interesting things.... 更多
I learned a lot of stuff about animals and other stuff and Modesto was a great guide. The food and lodgeing was great with the tour. Our family, including 2 children ages 8 and 6 saw numerous sloths, crocodiles, 3 types of monkeys, tropical birds and exotic frogs. we highly recomend river boat francesca!
We have just spent two weeks in Costa Rica, and one of the undoubted highlights was our trip to Tortuguero with Modesto of Riverboat Francesca. I cannot recommend him highly enough. The trip was a breeze to organise via email from London and we were picked up bang on time in San Jose ('Big Ben Time' as Modesto called it!).... 更多
We did the three days/ 2 nights trip with Modesto, like all the other reviews it was good value for money and a really great trip. We saw loads of wildlife and the hotel Laguna lodge was really nice. I would highly recommend if you the personal touch to book with riverboat Francesca!
My friend and I had the most fantastic time with Modesto on the Tortuguero canals. We had a two week exciting holiday travelling around Costa Rica, and the 3 days spent with Modesto and our lovely small group were our favourite. Everything was perfect - from Modesto's delightful company and sense of humour, his talent for spotting animals along the... 更多
Really enjoyed our few days with Modesto, he has a great balance of fun and knowledgable as a guide. Despite the rain, and the resulting lack of animals to see, he managed to wow us repeatedly by showing us the thick vegetation deep into Tortuguero's canals.
This was the best tour ever. Fran and Modesto are so welcoming. They also know everything about everything in Tortuguero. It was a private trip for 5 of us and they could not have made us feel more comfortable From eating meals with them to taking 5am walks (they offered so we could see more turtles), they were the best... 更多
My friend and I travelled with her young daughter up the east coast of Costa Rica on a road trip, finishing off in Tortuguero. We had contacted Francesca a month or so before our trip to book the tour up to Tortuguero, sharing the tour with another couple. We were met at Moin by Modesto, Francesca's husband, and taken on... 更多
Booking your Tortuguero trip with Modesto at Riverboat Francesca is the start of a great experience! Modesto is a very welcoming and knowledgeable man who will make sure you'll enjoy every second of your trip!
Even before we arrived in Costa Rica they were really helpful. They collected us from The Radisson Europa in San Jose. I would not recommend staying there as it was very over pierced and didn't have a nice atmosphere. Having said that the moment we came into the care of Modesta we had a fantastic time. My 3 teenagers and... 更多
