We took the boat from Jaco to Montezuma. The guy picked the 3 of us up and 2 others also from the same hostel...the guy literally said nothing. It wasn't a language barrier because my husband is Spanish and speaks it fluently and tried to communicate but he just had nothing to tell us...the guys just didn't say anything....ever! Other...

Dear, we apologize for that issue. We don't like to hear that from one of our drivers or maybe it was a driver arranged for that day to supported us, actually it would be very helpful if you could tell us on what day it was, to figure this out and try to improve on this matter. We're glad that... More

I booked Zuma prior to arriving in Costa Rica as a fun way to get over to Mal Pais for our vacation. The driver arrived in a timely matter and got us down to Jaco beach safely. I was slightly disappointed that we had to wait on the beach for a couple of hours as we were ill-prepared after getting... More

We had a great experience on our snorkeling trip from Montezuma to Tortuga. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. The shuttle boat took about 45 minutes to the island, then we snorkeled for about 2 hours. Our guide swam with us and showed us a wide variety of underwater creatures - we even got to hold... More

We caught a shuttle/Taxi from Mal Pais to Montezuma ( about 45 min ride) and hooked up with Zuma Tours for a snorkeling trip. The boat was well equipped and maintained with 2 large motors ( always good to have one back up motor). The crew was young but well experienced. The snorkeling was okay, nothing great but the boat...

Very good service for the boat from Jaco to Montezuma ! Also a nice shuttle pickup in town ! It's really the fastest way to cross the peninsula.

We had a wonderful experience with Zuma. They picked us up on time in Santa Teresa and were very friendly. Upon arrival at the beach they took great care in protecting our luggage and explaining procedures. Would love to use them again if I'm back in Costa Rica!

Our water taxi rides from Jaco to Montezuma and back were a bit wilder than we expected, but the service was excellent. The staff helped us with our luggage and assisted my husband, who has limited mobility, to get on and off the boat. We were unaware, however, that wet boarding and landing were involved; perhaps that should be made... More

I used Zuma Tours shuttle from Liberia to Sta Teresa recently and was happy with the service. There was no- one else taking the shuttle that day but Zuma offered me the option to pay for two, as that is the minimum that any of the shuttle services seem to require. That still works out cheaper than hiring a car... More

We had an excellent experience with Zuma Tours. We did their boat and snorkeling trip to Tortuga Island and the water taxi from Montezuma to Jaco. They were very professional and helpful. Our guide on the snorkeling trip was friendly, spoke excellent English, and the lunch that they provided was good. Both trips were great. They also arranged for transportation... More
