Good all-inclusive-sort-of tour!

Firstly, I (we) usually try to do stuff on our own, but this time we had little time and gave it a shot at having things "catered". Jungle Tom Safari was a good option. We took... read more

If you have given yourself a few days to go see the wonderful wildlife of Tortuguero, then I would really recommend the hassle-free, all-inclusive packages offered by Jungle Tom Safaris. The accommodation onsite is authentic, very clean and very comfortable. The buffet-style meals at the restaurant offered tasty traditional Tico cuisine. Best of all though was the tours themselves where... More

I was in Costa Rica for almost 2 weeks. The first 7 days was on a Caravan Tour that was very good. We covered a lot of territory, staid in lovely hotels, ate good food and saw a wonderful variety of wildlife. Our guide, Alejandro , was smart, funny, and everything you hope for in a guide. A great lot... More

We took a three day and two night tour to Tortuguero. The walks are pretty much at the same vicinity twice, it's on the trail around a hotel. Although, we found quite a lot of birds and reptiles, but I wish we could do a proper trail, I am not sure if there is any proper trail at all. The... More

We used Jungle Tom Safari Tours to provide our van and boat transportation from San Jose to Tortuguero. Great service . Van was a late model with what looked to be new tires. They provided breakfast on the way . Explained the different micro climate zones we were going thru. Told us about the banana plantations we passed and even... More

We used this service to get from San Jose to Tortuguero. They arrived to pick us up in a timely fashion in a rig that was a bit ancient. At a point about half way there, the rig wouldn't start, and all of the occupants had to get out and push to get it going. We were rewarded with a... More

We had wanted to spend several nights at Tortuguero as part of a 3 week Costa Rica tour and when considering various options, Jungle Tom Safaris seemed to come up with a perfect package at a price which undercut all the competition. I contacted someone who had previously reviewed their similar tour and, having satisfied myself that it really WAS... More

Can't comment on the yours as we booked with Jungle Toms as an easy alternative to taking the public bus/boat option and were really pleased we did. Hadn't realised breakfast was included, this was a great chance to try the typical Tico rice, beans and eggs breakfast...very tasty. Later, Luiz our guide, had the shuttle pull off the road so...

I booked a day trip from my hotel located on the west side of San Jose, closer to the airport. Do not take a day trip, especially if you are on that side of the city! They have options with overnight stay, I hope it works out better than my experience. The day started with the bus being late by... More

The rooms and pool were lovely. Our guide was friendly & helpful, however we were disappointed by the activities & felt that the website does not describe the activities accurately. The transfer from La Fortuna did not include breakfast or a visit to the banana plantation. The 'magical' boat tour was simply a boat transfer to Tortugero. The walk to... More
