Tortuga Island Tour
The Islas Tortuga or Turtle Islands are located in the Gulf of Nicoya, between the Nicoya Peninsula and mainland Costa Rica. The tour we offer to our clients starts early at 6:00 AM in the morning, with land transportation from San Jose or other destination to Puntarenas Harbor. There , our clients are taken in a Catamaran to the Islands, a trip around 1.5 hours long,. Onboard, there is life music, drinks, food and lots of fun. The views of the Gulf and the Nicoya Peninsula is pretty stunning. Occasional sea turtles, whales and dolphins can also be seen during the trip. Once at the island, people will enjoy the small but white sanded beach, swim, eat, drink, play volleyball, go snorkeling or enjoy the canopy tour. Once lunch is served, at around 3 PM, the Catamaran takes people back to Puntarenas Harbor and then, ground transportation back to San Jose, normally in a large air conditioned bus. We can also arrange the Tortuga Island Tour departing from Playa Jaco beach or other beaches along the Central Pacific Coast, including Punta Leona, Los Suenos, Herradura and also from the southern Nicoya Peninsula, from Montezuma, Tambor or even Mal Pais.
