Tortuga IslandTortuga Island - Cruising along the coast for a breathtaking 50-minute boat ride is how you’ll begin your voyage to Tortuga Island. Jagged volcanic rock spills into the sea to create a dramatic contrast with the brown sand, red rocks and crushed shells that make up the variety of different beaches along the way.

Spotting a group of playful dolphins, marveling at the enormous jumping manta rays or for the luckiest of visitors, catching a glimpse of surfacing humpback whales are just a few examples of the marine life frequently viewed as we make our way to the island.

Upon arriving to the tropical paradise of Tortuga Island we anchor the boat within viewing distance of the white sand beach for our first snorkeling session. The crystal waters at Tortuga are surrounded by volcanic rock reef which is home of the best snorkeling site on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast.

After your incredible snorkeling adventure we take you onto the white sand beach of Tortuga Island. While lunch is being prepared grab a cold drink and take a stroll along the beach and swim in the calm crystal waters. For lunch our chef serves up fresh BBQ fish or chicken in his secret sauce, tasty grilled potatoes and vegetables, bread and a big fresh tropical fruit buffet.
