Spend a day in paradise: enjoy a luxury cruise over the mesmerising turquoise seas of the Gulf of Nicoya to the spectacular Tortuga Island. Spot incredible wildlife, indulge in delicious food and even take a dip in the jacuzzi on board the catamaran! What are you waiting for?

Tortuga Island Tour from San José

Having been picked up from your hotel in San José first thing in the morning, you'll leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind and head west to the port of Puntarenas.

During the drive, you'll be treated to a light breakfast to build up your energy before your catamaran cruise over to Tortuga Island, located in the Gulf of Nicoya.

If you're lucky, as you sail across the sparkling turquoise waters of the gulf, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, you'll be able to spot whales, dolphins and other incredible marine animals swimming alongside the boat. The luxury catamaran also has a jacuzzi where you can relax while enjoying the stunning views and listening to live music.

And of course, you'll also be able to indulge in delicious snacks on board, including tropical fruits, fish ceviche and unlimited natural drinks.

Following your hour and a half cruise from the mainland, you'll arrive at Isla Tortuga. Soft white sands, crystal-clear seas and lush tropical jungle await you on this paradise island. You'll have five hours of free time to explore to your heart's content: relax under the Costa Rican sun, hike a trail through the jungle or play volleyball on the beach... the island is your oyster!

After an incredible day on Isla Tortuga, you'll begin the return journey to Punta Arenas, before heading back to San José where you'll be dropped off at your hotel.


Your excursion includes a delicious hearty lunch on Tortuga Island:

  • Two cold salads with dressings.
  • A fillet of fish and a chicken breast, both grilled and served in sauces.
  • Rice with sautéed vegetables.
  • A glass of house white wine.
  • Dessert and Costa Rican coffee.

If you have any allergies or dietary requirements, please indicate them in the comments box when making your reservation.
