Día de tour

Realizar snorkeling fue lo más bonito del tour. Recomiendo llevar agua para tomar y lavarse las manos al menos.
We enjoyed the beach day

Great service, since we were picked up from the hotel the guide was very friendly. We had time to have breakfast and then we boarded the boat, during the journey we saw dolphins and took the opportunity to spend a nice day at the beach.
Must do in Costa Rica

Fantastic tour, they take really great care of you and Tortuga is just beautiful. We were able to snorkel and saw quite a few fish, the drinks were excellent and our tour guide Diana watched out for us all along the way along with the rest of the crew. Good lunch, drinks (not included) and amazing experience all around.

This was a great tour and worth every penny. Isla Tortuga and Isla Alcatraz is a must see when visiting Costa Rica. The trip takes you through the scenic countryside into Puntarenas where you will take a boat ride to Isla Alcatraz. The island has many attractions such as hiking, snorkeling, volleyball, swimming, drinks and a gift shop. Plan on spending 14+ hours on this adventure.
Great getaway

This was a very relaxing trip to the island of Tortuga.
Tour guide was very accommodating and helpful. He was also very knowledgeable.
I hope they would include a hiking activity in the island for people who don’t want to explore the island.
Great Costa Rican beach day

Beautiful island and wonderful way to experience a beach day. The views there are like no other beach, and you look out into a cove on one side and small islands throughout the water. Everyone on the island is helpful and there to make your day great. The only heads up I feel guests should know is a lot of things cost extra money. The breakfast is a stop at a cute restaurant on the way to the port that everyone is responsible for their own, and on the island even bottled water and restrooms cost money. Everything is very reasonably priced, but we did not bring enough cash and ended up using credit card to just use the bathroom.
Great experience

Mariela was great. Very energetic and great knowledge of the area. The only downsides were the transportation and the actual island itself. We had no bathroom breaks or breakfast until 8am and we were picked up at 5am. The actual island is a money grab. Bathrooms are $1, renting a chair is $14. You pay for literally everything there. But it was beautiful and a great way to spend a Saturday. If you don’t mind spending some money, I would definitely recommend.
