This one is about an hour bus ride from port to park. Once at the park we took a short walk and visited the insectarium and then the macaws and monkeys. The macaw and monkey part are some of my favorite memories from this cruise. Word of warning the macaws like buttons and ate the one off my moms hat...so maybe don’t wear a hat. Otherwise it was a very pleasant excursion with time for beach at the end. Some of the trails can be uneven so use caution, but I broke my ankle 10 months ago and traversed it fine. You do have to pay $5 for a locker. Read Less

The tour was great as were the monkeys and Parrots. The beach for swimming was murky. We swam in the onsite pool for a little while before heading back to the ship.

Amazing!

Amazing! We had such a great time with the wildlife and then an amazing lunch and beach day at Tabyana. There is a lot of walking. Be prepared. We had some on our tour who were clueless to what excursion they signed up for.

Loved this excursion, despite the heat and humidity! Had a great, funny tour guide. We weren't sure what to expect in the monkey zone, but it was so much fun! Our kids had huge smiles as the monkeys would leap from the trees onto shoulders and then on to other people. Great way to learn more about the island and ecology. Read Less

If you love animals, you'll want to see this. Having the opportunity to hold a spider monkey, pet a sloth, have a macaw stand on your shoulder, and see other animals and critters never seen in the US was a great experience.

Great excursion!! Love Gumba Limba and Tabyana Beach is LOVELY! found mtg spot for Tabyana Beach and Gumbalimba Park but the tour directions folks weren’t very clear and a bunch of us headed off with the wrong group. Finally our guide, St. Christopher, gathered us and led to the bus. VERY cramped bus - larger folk barely fit down the aisle. 35 minute ride to GumbaLimba Park. Beautiful day! Saw 2 woodpeckers near the huge fig tree. Saw iguanas and island rabbits (capybaras) before going thru the insectarium and Coxen’s cave. Climbed lots of stairs then crossed the bamboo bridge (Puente Bambusa) to see the birds. Scarlet and green/Military macaws as well as green parrots, turkey vultures, toucan and peafowl. Onward to see the monkeys although one visited us at the birds. I was winded when we got to the monkey area so the trainer told me to sit on the swing. Macheco, the white-faced capuchin monkey almost immediately came to sit on me!! The monkeys were fun and friendly except for some infighting with a male harassing a momma and her baby. Mango the monkey also sat on my head. We hiked back, said goodbye to Christopher and took the bus to Tabyana Beach. Read Less

Lots of fun here! Learned a lot. The ride takes you across the island, and you experience the poverty that exists here. The park is clean and lovely. Wear a swimsuit and enjoy the beautiful beach here after your tour. Buy something from the locals (you will fell good helping them and then they will tend to leave you to enjoy the beauty of the sea). Our tour guide was excellent. Read Less

After a short ride we reached the park. The tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the experience with the animals was great, particular the monkeys. We wish they would have told us that we could stayed at the beach, so we would have brought some swimwear. Read Less

Great park, very well done. The cruise ship should tell people you will need to rent a locker, once there, for their bags and that there are swimming opportunities in the pool and ocean. They did neither so we were unprepared.

Gumbalimba was AWESOME if you love animals and the beauty of nature like my family does and then the Tobyanna beach resort was the perfect spot for shore snorkeling! The reef is HUGE and we brought our own snorkeling gear in backpacks so one of the resort staff offered to show us some great spots on the reef for tip only and Phil was AMAZING! He found a sea turtle, squid, lobster, showed us his large "pet" blue fish that would let him pet it and he would feed the fish which brought tons of them all around us! We also tipped the the man from the resort and he watched our bags at our lounge chairs very intently while we snorkled. Read Less
