Full description
Spend the day in absolute luxury and escape the daily grind on a trip to Tortuga Island from San Jose. After pickup from your San Jose hotel in an air-conditioned bus, head to Puntarenas where a delicious hot breakfast awaits you. Dine on eggs, galla pinto, queso turrialba, caramelized plantains, fresh fruit, fresh juice, and rich Costa Rican coffee.

Once you’re all full up from breakfast, board your luxury catamaran for the day and set sail for the breathtaking Tortuga Island. Onboard the boat, make use of the expansive sun deck, swimming pools, and lounging nets, and don’t forget to treat yourself to more fresh fruits, coffee, juice, soda, and more.

Arrive at Tortuga Island and immediately feel immersed in this incredible tropical paradise, bursting with luscious greenery and glistening white sandy beaches contrasted against the turquoise sea. Spend the day swimming and snorkeling in the water, riding on a thrilling banana boat, relaxing on the beach, or chilling on the catamaran. At lunchtime, enjoy a gourmet 4-course meal including ceviche, grilled chicken, steamed rice, Julienne vegetables, garlic bread, and a salad bar. Lunch is also accompanied by coffee and dessert.

On the return journey to San Jose, sail between the islands of the gulf and admire a majestic and unforgettable sunset before reaching the port.
