Peter is pretty good in answering his email in timely manner, but try again. You could also see his listing on Airbnb,you kinda tell the availability through the calendar.
We will be on a cruise stopover (Princess Cruises); how long does it take to get from Limon to this tree and is this a reasonable stopover excursion given the time available (11 hrs)? Do you have a van or bus to pick us up and drop off? David
