All I can say is wow, what a wonderful day, the weather for us was perfect, the ride to the island was very nice, small band on boat that kept you entertained. I do highly recommend this. they do have chairs and umbrella for rent if you need to get out of the sun. Water was wonderful and lunch provided was very good. I do highly recommend this trip to Tortuga Island.
Great tour! There was so much to do and everyone was so friendly. The food was good and so was the service and entertainment. Overall it was a great experience, definitely would return
This was a great trip. It was a long trip and I feel like I got more than my money's worth. The boat ride was nice because you can move around and enjoy the entertainment. They go all out to make you confortable even when you are on the island. Of course anything you plan on doing on the island will cost extra but that's expected. The lunch on the beach was good. it was cooke fresh right on the island. They bring all the raw food on boad and take everything back at the end of the day. it was neat to see how much work they put in to make your trip enjoyable. I will not forget this tour...
Overall this turned out to be a very nice trip for me. I don't care too much for the beach but needed to go to at least one while in CR. I was picked up at the Real Intercontinental Hotel in Escazu. And taken to a drop off point to get on a tour bus. This is the part of the trip I had a issue with. That was the most compact tour bus I had ever been on. I felt that for as much as I paid for the trip I could have a little more room. I know I know, it's just how I felt. Moving on, we were given a little sack meal for breakfast. It was a ham and cheese sandwich, juice box and an apple. I have seen other reviews where people didn't appreciate that. To me it was fine, it hit the spot. I believe we drove for an hour and a half or so to the docks to get on the catamaran. It was nice it had a bar and we were served snacks for the ride to Tortuga Island. I believe it was an hour and a half cruise to the island. Very picturesque island. Clean and neat. There were a few activities to do, banana boat ride, jet ski, eco-tour of the island and just chilling. We were served lunch after about an hour of being there. It was pretty good. There was a guy singing karaoke. I love karaoke so this was great. If I had drank just one more Imperial I would have gone up to sing with him. After lunch we had about 3 or 4 more hours to do whatever.There is a gift shop that sells a little bit of everything and they rent lockers so you can store your things. Please do this if you decide to ride the Banana boats, they get flipped pretty regularly. The most awesome part of this trip was meeting the local friendly Peccary. I had never seen one before and it came right up to my beach chair and wanted me to cover it in sand. I obliged him. There were also tropical parrots and some chickens roaming around. On the cruise back they gave us fresh pineapple and watermelon as well as some delicious carrot cake and drinks. It was a nice experience.
Excellent tour, food was okay. Boat ride was long but lots to look at!

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 a highlight of our trip. Although it was long- we were already aware of this it didn't matter. The ENTERTAINMENT on the boat was super entertaining and fun. He kept the guests laughing and also had them participate which kept ift fun. The other attendants on the boat were super friendly and nice. They came out with snacks throughout the ride i.e fruit, ceviche, cake. The food provided on the island was DELICIOUS.
I would love to give this a 5 star but I gave it a 4 because the breakfast that is provided is a ham and cheese sandwich which I specifically requested for osmething elese since I don't eat pork and was not accomodated. Also upon arrival to the ocean to do ANY activities you have to pay for them. I think this needs to be noted ahead of time so guests are aware. The beachy on the island is rocky and also not the cleanest. But due to staff and the boat ride I would RECOMMEND this trip to anyone. Lots of fun!!!!
I was disappointed with the garbage that was washed up on the beach. I pictured being on a beautiful island with white sand and clean beaches but as we explored the coastline I saw a lot of trash which included diapers washed up on the beach. Not very appealing when you just came out of the water. The staff however was very nice and accommodating and the food was wonderful. Over all I did enjoy relaxing on the lounge chair and having drinks. Just wish the beach was clean.
This was an interesting trip. It was good and everything it was advertised to be It was just long. long bus ride long boat ride long time on the island. I was picked up at 6 Am and didn't get back until 9 pm.
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.
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
The booking is very miss leading as to what you are being offered. You are only paying for transportation from your hotel to the actual beach. Everything including the chairs to sit down at the beach are an extra cost. There was no wine offered and you are only provided 3 vouchers for soft drinks. The lunch was good however it is not a buffet style and is more of a plate served to you think soup kitchen line. The only saving grace for this trip was the actual staff that was very attentive and cordial.
