What people are saying about Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

I truly enjoyed this tour - it was so interesting and educational! Our guide Edgar first took us to a river that makes the border between Costa Rica and Panama. Then we went to meet the Watsu community of the Bribri Indians and cooked chocolate with them from cacao beans. We could participate int he process and take pictures. And we were served a delicious desert and chocolate drink at the end. So yummy! Edgar also shared with us lots of interesting information about the community and their way of living, their language, traditions, houses, religion,... He showed us other parts of the village and a little frog farm including 6 different types of poisonous frogs. I've learned so much in the course of those 2 hours. After that we went for a swim to a nearby waterfall, which was so refreshing. The entire tour took about 4.5 hours and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Edgar!

The bus was on time. The driver was so friendly and really took care of me. My luggage was immediately sorted and there were toilet breaks in the way. I really liked the fact I was given water and a pillow as it was a long journey. A huge thank you to the pink bus for making my journey so easy and stress free, I would highly recommend using this service.

Had an amazing dag! Beautiful nature and some rreally nice ziplining. But dont expect the guides to educate you so much about the flora and fauna as is insinuated i the description. But they are happy to tell you stuff if you ask for it. On the whole - a great experience that I really would recommend!

It was amazing, we visit Santa Teresa and Samara in a couple of days… I presence the best sunset I ever seen before !! We test local foot at a reasonable price, I definitely recommend this activity for everyone 😍😍🌄 🥘
