Why Visit the Caribbean

Many travelers that visit Costa Rica head to the Pacific coast beaches and skip the Caribbean coast altogether. We think they are making a big mistake! 


The Caribbean side of Costa Rica has consistently decent weather, beautiful beaches, lush jungles filled with wildlife and a relaxed Afro Caribbean feel. Plus, this area is home to many so many fun tour options!


The three most popular towns to visit on the Caribbean coast are Puerto Viejo, Cahuita, and Tortuguero. Tortuguero is a great place to explore for a few days. Here you can take a wildlife kayak trip, visit a banana plantation, watch leatherback turtles nesting, and more. 


Puerto Viejo and Cahuita are better spots for spending several days. From these two destinations, there are many exciting options of things to do for all ages and adventure levels.


Here at Caribe Fun Tours, we are experienced tour operators and know all the best things to do on the Caribbean coast. It is our goal to make sure you have a perfect vacation to Costa Rica and our trips reflect that. Also, all of our Caribbean tours and trips are led by experienced guides who will always put your safety and comfort first.

Along the way, the guide will point out an abundance of wildlife including sloths, raccoons, white-faced monkeys, snakes, and more! All guides are very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the area. They also carry a telescopic lens so you can get an up-close view of animals hidden in the trees.
