The boat sank. No safety instructions and the crew managed to sink the boat 8 miles from shore. The most horrible experience of my life and my entire family was in the boat. At least I know this boat won't carry anymore tourists since it's sitting in 450 feet of water. I honestly can't even believe this attraction is still... More

There were quite a few positive things about the trip to Tortuga Island. For one, it was beautiful and the staff on the boat were great. There was fun music on the boat and dancing which was a lot of fun. However, we felt that for 120$ per person, the food should have been better quality and beer should have... More

I would highly reccomend this tour to anyone visiting Costa Rica, we have travelled large portions of Costa Rica, and not many tours will give you this kind of quality for the money you spend. Tours and excursions are generally offered by several different companies offering the same excursion, I have to say Pura Vida is the best option if... More

This was so nice to be picked up from our hotel and returned later that night. We could enjoy all the drinks we wanted to and did. It was a nice trip on the boat to the island and so many options once you got on the island from, snorgling, banana boat rides, hiking and kayaking. All which are included... More

Todd and Tataina and crew are very attentive from the moment you meet them. This is a day cruise to Tortuga Island with 3 meals and drinks. The food and drinks are very good. Once you get to the island, they have snorkeling, an eco-hike, kayaking, banana boat ride and of course swimming and relaxing. They are very hands on... More

Let me be the first to say! The cruise was awesome, the staff was friendly. They served food throughout the cruise, and rum punch and mojitos was included. They gave you breakfast lunch and dinner. The owners are a Husband and Wife team and they are hands on with all the guest. I can't say one negative thing about this... More
