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.

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!

One of the best parts of Costa Rica
Snorkeling I didn’t care for the deep water,but the kayak,paddle board and banana boat are great! The crew is very friendly and helpful.

The trip was very well organized. The bus had a restroom and it would have been better if it was cleaned more frequently. Else , sitting in those back seats would mean inhaling a lot of foul smell.

The boat ride was nice, but there really wasn't anything on the island. The snorkeling was good, food was good and I loved the hammocks on the island.
