This dreamy island paradise fringed with tall swaying coconut palms, sugary white sand beaches and emerald waters invites absolute tranquility and luxury. There are numerous tour operators that will whisk you by boat to Tortuga Island most commonly departing from Jaco or Puntarenas and is about a 90 minute ride with plenty of amazing scenic views.
Once you’ve arrived spend the glorious day swimming, playing volleyball, hiking the forested hills, or simply sun bathing in the warmth of the sun and beauty of the area. For those seeking adventure take part in the canopy tour and zip line that will fly you through the tree tops giving you a birds eye view of the forest. For some aquatic fun get on a water bike, kayak the coast line or venture out on a glass bottom boat.
A huge attraction to this exotic island is its outstanding scuba diving sites and excellent snorkeling opportunities to view marine life such as sting rays, angel fish, sharks, Spinner dolphins and octopus. Unique and exclusive to the vecinity and all of Central America is the dive site with three sunken boats and diving outfitters that will take you there up close and personal. It’s easy to make this destination an unforgettable part of your Costa Rican adventure.
Why travel to Puntarenas when you can leave from and return to Herradura bay just a couple of minutes away from Jaco Beach? In this tour we will pick you up at your condominium or hotel and then take you in a ride aboard the Pura Vida Princess catamaran where you can enjoy the sights of other islands we will pass along the way and take advantage of both the open and closed deck areas that this 100′ catamaran offers. The on-board live DJ and full staff catering to your every need will ensure you you’ll never need or want to ask if we are there yet. Add to that, 4 free cocktails (a special blend rum punch that will remind anyone of the drinks you would expect to be sipping on in the tropics) and a full cash bar stocked with plenty of top shelf liquor to ensure we have something for everyone. Also included are natural fruit drinks, soda, and water for those that prefer to forgo the alcoholic libations.
“Enjoy a day of sun, fun and cruising!”
Once at Tortuga Island enjoy the private group area set back on the white sand beach adjacent to one of the best protected reserves in the country. No matter whether you are on the beach or in the water, Tortuga Island offers plenty of wildlife. Take the Snorkeling excursion that is included in the tour and explore some of the fish and underwater life in our warm 80+ degree ocean. Walk the beach and you will find plenty to look at and enjoy. Join us for a complimentary barbeque lunch with more natural fruit drinks, soda, water, rum punch, well stocked cash bar, and plenty of food to leave you ready for a nap on the beach under one of the shady umbrellas, surrounded by gentle breezes and the sound of lapping ocean waves. Get in on a game of volley ball, ride the banana boat, go for a paddle in a kayak, do a little trinket shopping in the well-stocked souvenir stand, soak and swim in the beautiful clear waters or just laze on the beach. Families and groups alike love the variety of things to do during the approximately 5 hours we will spend on the island.
