ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! MUST DO! Calypso Tours offers an amazing experience to Isla Tortuga! Definitely worth the money as everything is included banana boat ride, snorkeling, fresh fruit and fruit juice, delicious breakfast and lunch! Staff were absolutely amazing! They were so attentive and made the whole day seem like a party!
Amazing outing! every detail was very well thought out. Friendly and thoughtful staff, comfortable surroundings, tasty food and perfect fruit snacks. The island was beautiful and full of animals running around. My son especially enjoyed the pig who is such a big beggar that it was waiting for the boat to come in and knew what time we would be eating. I would go on this excursion again in a heartbeat. They kept us moving the whole time so we stole some time to hang out on the hammocks.
Fue una experiencia inolvidable. Tuvimos la oportunidad de compartir con otros viajeros todo estuvo muy bueno. Me recogieron a la hora prevista toda la tripulación es genial hacen un trabajo excelente pero el único sobre que recuerdo es el de la guía turística Celys es muy amigable nos dio muchos detalles durante el tour nos enseño mucho sobre la cultura Tica en general al igual que por cada punto interesante durante la travesía nos fue enseñando y lo hizo en español e ingles simultáneamente de forma muy clara en ambos idiomas y en cuanto al tour en general vale cada centavo que se pague el bus muy cómodo desayuno el almuerzo fenomenal al igual que las frutas que en todo momento están sirviendo durante el viaje. Fue un día muy lindo, y no me pesa haber seleccionado este tour.
A wonderful ride with a GREAT staff! What a perfect day! The staff was extremely helpful and hardworking. The food was DELICIOUS! I have no negative comments for this tour!
I do want to address some of the negative reviews I have seen. Several people complained that they had to get up so early, but it is important to know that you are going all the way from the center of the country to the coast. It takes about 2.5 hours to get to the coast by car, then there is a 45 minute catamaran ride. The bus was very clean and nice and the catamaran was obviously well taken care of!
Another negative comment I read was about the food. This comment baffles me because I felt like they did nothing but feed me great food all day long. I was so full, that I didn't even have dinner that night because I had so much food. When we arrived at the dock, they gave us a delicious local breakfast. Then once we boarded the catamaran, they came around with fruit. When we got to the Island they made a scrumptious salad bar and lunch. When we loaded back on the boat in the afternoon/early evening they gave us even more fruit.
Everything was wonderful! I absolutely loved it! Highly recommend!
