We took Zuma Tours from Jaco to Montezuma and then back to Puntarenas. Also took a day trip to Isla Tortuga with them. They were terrific across the board! Super nice, definitely knew what they were doing, and very efficient. Zuma Tours made getting from place to place feel like an adventure rather than drudgery (like a long shuttle ride... More

We did the boat ride to beautiful Tortuga Island for about 2 hours of snorkeling. Make sure you plan to do this when the sun will be shining as it was cloudy the day I went. It was still super cool but full sun would have been better. They feed you fresh pineapple while on the boat and then a... More

There wasn't much to see when we snorkeled, but the service of Zuma Tours was great. I would maybe book a different tour with them- great company, just not good sealife in the areas we went.

After a 30-minute ride from our hotel in Santa Teresa, we arrived in Montezuma shaken (not stirred). For those who know the roads, you'll understand. Berto greeted us and asked us to wait in the "office," small but at least air conditioned. The rest room is tiny and not particularly well maintained and the sink is "in the back." Victor... More

In March I used Zuma for a pick up in San Jose to Jaco for the water taxi and back again to San Jose. I loved the water taxi, we go to see dophins and sting rays from the boat. Zuma tours where very professional and punctual. I can not wait to use them again, and would recommend them. I... More

I use the water taxi service from Jaco to Montezuma every time I am in Costa Rica, which is at least once a year. I have never had a problem with the service, in fact I have no complaints at all. Taking the water taxi saves hours of over land travel, plus you're on the water, the staff seems to... More

We used their water taxi service to travel from Montezuma to Jaco to continue on our travels down the coast. They were very professional in all of our dealings with them. The ride was scenic and fun!

So for $55 a person, you get an activity to do from about 9am-5pm! Can't beat that. We got about 2 hours total beautiful boat ride, about 2 hours total of awesome scuba near Tortuga Island. Then they feed you a great chicken/fish lunch with beer at beautiful Tortuga island. You get 2 hours of free time on White sand... More

We used Zuma Tours water taxi to get from Jaco to Montezuma and vice versa. It was a little over an hour boat ride and we were there! Great option. I suggest booking ahead to make it easy (though not necessary). The way there was smooth sailing. The way back was incredibly wavy and we got wet (our luggage did... More

Easy reservations by PayPal or CreditCard via their website -- then a friendly follow-up email by a Zuma representative. I only used the Jaco to Montezuma (ida/vuelta - round-trip) service by fast boat, but based on that experience, I can confidently write a positive review and recommend their services. Zuma picks you up at your hotel or hostel in Jaco... More
