We took the sunset sail leaving our beach at 3:30. It was a VERY relaxng time aboard. There were eight passengers. Snorkeling was included at a secluded beach area, after which we were served snacks of fresh fruit, chips & dips. Captain Isael was very friendly! Latin music played in the background for the whole trip, changing to Enya for... More

The good things: I got picked up in time, the crew is very friendly, the itinerary takes you along some nice beaches, the sunset is very nice, Israel ( the captain) goes out of his way to briefly follow a pod of dolphins. What's not so nice: the location for snorkeling is the same for all sunset cruises, including those... More

This was an awesome sailing/snorkeling trip, only 8 people plus 3 attentive crew. Highly recommended, and the price was right too.

On our final day of vacation on Costa Rica we took the sunset cruise on Kuna Vela - it was beautiful. $75 per person for 4 hours. 45 minutes to get to a snorkeling location, it was too choppy for me, but my husband enjoyed it. Then we sailed to a small secluded beach for a brief stop, then sailed... More

this sail trip was one of the highlights of the vacation. 4 hours of sailing, snorkeling, sunset and open bar for $65 per person. can beat it. we've had 11 people onboard (all Americans) as opposite to 25+ on the catamaran tours. it felt more intimate as yacht is cooler than commercial ship. we may do it again next time...

We enjoyed an afternoon of snorkeling and sailing. With the temperatures soaring in January this was a welcome relief. We were brought by boat from our hotel to the Sail Boat to join another family. The first stop was snorkeling. Personally we found it marginal at best. We have been to some of the best snorkeling spots in the world,... More

We booked a snail/snorkel trip before our arrival in Costa Rica, and everything went very smoothly. They picked us up on the beach of our hotel, the Bosque del Mar in Playa Hermosa. We thoroughly enjoyed the sailing, the snorkeling, and even the food. The boat was very nice, and I couldn't recommend Kuna Vela more highly.

Aug. 2014- Can't imagine anyone not loving this adventure. Juan Carlos went out of his way to make sure our experience was the best it could be and it was. Costa Rica was amazing but this tour was most definitely the highlight. Everything it promised and more. And a thank you to Corrine for booking our reservations and answering questions... More

My sister and my two sons, ages 8 and 6 went on the sunset sail. My boys enjoyed everything, they got to sail the boat, we saw dolphins and turtles. The captain caught a tuna and showed us. The sunset was beautiful and the views outstanding!

We chartered this sailboat while we were staying at Riu Palace Hotel a few miles up the beach. Since the hotel is rather isolated, we thought it might be nice to view and explore beaches, mountains, and sea life from a sailboat. We did not make a mistake. The crew on this boat went out of their way to make... More
