Departing from Herradura or the Port of Caldera, we'll transport you to the tropical paradise of Tortuga Island. We'll travel aboard a new and fully equipped boat. You could spot humpback whales, dolphins, sea turtles, and other marine animals depending on the time of year. Enjoy the scenery from the boat's covered observation deck, while you sip on delicious tropical drinks and fresh, seasonal fruit.
The Gulf of Nicoya is a favorite, thanks to its peaceful waters for snorkeling and spotting manta rays, dolphins, and a wide variety of crustaceans. On the island, you'll enjoy a variety of activities like banana boating, snorkeling, stand-up paddle surfing, kayaking, and more. Or, just relax on the beach and enjoy the banquet our staff prepares for you.
When you leave Tortuga Island, you'll feel truly relaxed and full of energy.
Take a leap to the second most beautiful park in our wondrous world, Manuel Antonio. The meaning of adventure must be unfurling in the infinite swirling of young palm fronds. If you look intently enough you may decipher the grand design of life in the footprints left by ancient world iguanas in the soil. Follow the trail until it opens onto the most eternal of all life forms, the wise and welcoming sea. A white sand beach is mother na-ture’s invitation to rest and become one with the infinite horizon. Do not return until you have found that deep calm, until your mind has cleared away the details of the journey and found its sacred rhythm between the edge of the sea and the edge of the sky. For where the sky and the sea meet is ever changing and ever con-stant just like you. As you slip between the covers, slip into that eternal meeting of tranquil blue and close your eyes to return to the eternity of you.
