Luggage weight on boat to Tortuguero

I know that the weight issue on the domestic planes has been discussed; however, does anyone know how strict they are on the boat ride that takes us to Tortuguero? I'm wondering if we have backpacks/camera bags on our person, would they be included in the 25 lb weight limit for luggage? Leaving things at the hotel in San Jose is not an option as we are continuing on to Arenal from Tortuguero.

Nobody actually weighs your luggage like they do when you check in at an airport, but there is not much room in those boats nor is there much room in the minivans that transport you to the launch site. I don't know what they would do if someone came on the excursion with a big suitcase and a big packpack. Everytime I've gone up there, everybody packs light.

I think thats no problem. On my visit to Tortuguero I saw an electric bull on the boat.

LOL--in other words, things are starting to "liven up" a bit in Tortuguero?
