    Pick up was in time. We drove approx. 15min out of town. We were 8 guests on the boat with plenty of space. Time on the boat was 2 hours. Guide and „Captain“ Spotted the wildlife and the Guide explained Details about animals and plants. Please note that the starting time of this aktivity is related to the high-tide !! So the time may change. On my Tour we saw a spectacular Sunset and were able to take pictures as well before heading back. A Lunch/Dinner in a Restaurant in Quepos with 1 Drink is included at the and of the Tour
