What You Can Expect

Tortuga Island Cruise

Tortuga Island, Costa Rica

Tucked between Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula and the mainland, Tortuga Island is a postcard-worthy tropical paradise. Your full-day escape begins with pickup at your Jaco or Punta Leona hotel in the morning, and then a scenic drive to the port at Puntarenas. Here, board a comfortable boat and settle in for a 2-hour cruise across the Gulf of Nicoya. Along the way, admire the brilliant blue water around you and keep an eye out for passing marine life.

Once you reach the island, the day is yours to spend as you wish. Drop a towel and catch some rays on the island’s pristine, white sand beaches, or head out into the clear water for a refreshing swim. If you crave more adventure, kayaks, boats and snorkeling equipment are available to rent for a small fee. You can also head out for a nature hike to explore the inland rain forest, where you might spot tropical birds or even one of Tortuga’s resident wild pigs!

Savor a delicious buffet lunch of grilled meat and fish, rice, salad and fresh fruit prepared by your friendly guide. Dine near the beach where you can take in a spectacular view of the surrounding turquoise waters. After around 4 hours of leisure time the island, climb back on the boat for the return cruise to Puntarenas and the drive back to your hotel, where you’ll be dropped off in the evening.

The tour and Island were great, the only thing is I wish they would tell you that when you get to the island you still have to pay for lounge chairs and the activity rentals.

IT WAS REALLY NICE. MY HUSBAND AND I WERE SAD THAT WE DIDNT GET ANY BEER OR WINE ON THE BOAT. THE BOAT WENT TO SLOW. THE SNORKELING WAS GOOD AND THE FOOD WAS YUMMY!!

Was disappointed that there was an additional fee for snorkeling. Musicians were the highlight. There seemed no place to explore behind the beach.

Enjoyed the Trip, Disappointed that we weren't able to walk around or tour the Island. You were limited to the Beach area only.
