Tamarindo Snorkel & Sunset Cruise with Lunch
"We had an excellent time with our tour guide Felipe. If you’re driving to the meeting point, be advised that there is a parking area next to the restaurants, but there’s a parking attendant that charges $6 to watch your car. There a no restroom, if you need to use one, you’ll have to pay a dollar to use the restroom at one of the restaurants nearby. Once you’re ready to go, you’ll get on a small boat from the beach to the catamaran. No shoes allowed on either boat, you might as well leave them in your car. Once we were off and introductions were made, we made our way to the snorkel area. On the way there, we spotted some dolphins which the Captain kindly turned around so we could look at them. Once at the snorkel area, they had the gear ready. There isn’t much to see really, the water was very murky, but it was fun to jump off the boat. We had lunch after that was prepared by the bartender. Rice, beans, bbq chicken, pico de gallo, fresh fruit and chips. The food was excellent. We went back for seconds, the pico was the best I’ve ever had. After lunch we returned back to Tamarindo beach. It was cloudy and beginning to sprinkle so we didn’t have a good sunset view. Overall the crew was very friendly and attentive. Piña Colada was made with fresh pineapple."..."
