What You Can Expect
Pristine white sand beaches and calm turquoise water surround Tortuga Island, making it a perfect place to swim and snorkel. With approximately five hours to spend at your leisure on the island, it’s up to you whether you want to relax, be active, or both! Sunbathe on the beach or go for a dip in the sea. Explore hiking trails or play sports on the beach. You can also choose to snorkel, kayak or take a banana boat ride for a small additional charge.
While you are soaking up the tropical ambiance, your guide prepares a gourmet buffet lunch for you to snack on when you get hungry. Your lunch choices include salads, grilled fish or chicken accompanied by rice and sautéed vegetables, fresh fruits, wine, and Costa Rican coffee. A few musicians play fun beach music as you enjoy your meal.
After a day in paradise, head back to San Jose, retracing your steps by boat and coach. Your tour ends when you are returned to your hotel in the evening.
Excellent tour, food was okay. Boat ride was long but lots to look at!
Very nice tour and tour guide. Recommend highly.

This was a delightful experience and our guide was most helpful. The crew were very efficient and caring. The catermarran was in excellent condition and very clean. The music was too intrusive. I do think that the musician should be more attentive to his audience for each sailing. If no one is dancing why keep up the blaring music? To experience the peace of fantastic scenery during the sailings was totally out of reach...as he played and sang loudly and consistently!!! One could not escape the musical intrusion.
The island setting ,food and staff were all satisfactory...a lovely special experience.. The coach trips were pleasant and with helpful informative commentaries. Thank you to guide, crew and island staff.
Great day tour priced right. Tour guide and boat crew were all you could ask for. On time-food and beverage wonderful. delivered as promised.
This tour was great! The guides spoke clear English, and they were very informative! We had Rafael and he was very patient and understanding with our group. The ride from the hotel to the port was smooth beautiful views of the country. The cruise and island wwee so much fun! Worth the money!
Breakfast was ham and cheese sandwich. It was not what we expected for breakfast. The cruise, snacks, drinks and crew members were great. Lunch was good not great. There was good music entertaining while we are on the cruise and at the island. If you are looking for more activities at the island then bring extra cash for snorkeling gears or snorkeling guide.
fun beach day.
I love this place it was beautiful. The company that managed the tour was 35 minutes late picking me up and they did not accommodate vegetarian meals(breakfast and snack-spent the day without food- no place to purchase) so I had to stay with food all day. We had to pay for additional items if you wanted to enjoy this place- the Beach chair, walking tour, snorkeling all were additional expenses
