Starting Your Tour
You’ll start your tour by being transported from Jaco or San Jose (depending on your location) to Puntarenas around 6 in the morning. Once onboard the bus and well on your way, you’ll be served a simple yet tasty breakfast and meet your bilingual guide, who will be with you for the entirety of the trip. Shortly after, you’ll arrive in the bustling town of Puntarenas where you will board one of our two luxury boats.
After departing from the port town of Puntarenas, you will navigate the Gulf of Nicoya for an hour and a half, making your way through the its rich, tropical waters as you approach the island. Tropical fruits, fresh fish ceviche, and natural beverages will be served along the way (on the way back a goodbye cocktail and appetizer will be served as well), plus you’ll have music and professional entertainment throughout the tour!
On The Island
Monkeys and birds… tropical fish and clear waters with white sand beaches! This place is gorgeous! Play some beach volleyball (included) and explore the available areas of the island. You can choose from various add-on activities, like a beach chair rentals along with snorkeling or banana boating (being towed by jet-ski) for just $15. You also have options such as kayaking or hiking the island with a guide to see tons of fantastic wildlife!
After all of this awesomeness, you are bound to be hungry! Lunch is served at 1 pm. Choose from a delectable Fresh Grilled Fish or Grilled Chicken, both served with Garden Rice, Vegetables, and a glass of wine, then followed by a special dessert which is chosen daily by the Chef and paired with a cup of delicious, Costa Rican coffee.
Around 4 pm, you’ll start your way back with the marvelous view of the setting sun from out in the gulf. Enjoy your maritime passage back to Puntarenas as the sun sets, listening to the music, singing karaoke and having a farewell cocktail with a few bites to eat.
