The folks at Zuma were very nice. The tours and equipment are very small compared to the ones in Cancun or Cozumel or Great Barrier Reef, but since I was diving without my regular buddies it was OK. The boat leaves Montezuma beach around 9 and it's a calm 30+ minute boat ride to the island. Divers transfer to a... More

This company has it's stuff together! I used them twice on my trip - To Montezuma and then back to Jaco. Boat departed on time, crew helped getting on and off the boat, and the trip was pretty smooth considering the swells and the speed. I mentioned to them hearing about a waterfall that flows into the ocean. They told... More

Javier of ZumaTours helped us and booked us the most amazing private tour to Tortuga Island. We weren't sure what to expect but we had a professional private shuttle driver pick us up early, A/C for us, and we arrived on time for the tour. We had great service, fresh made drinks and beers, full snorkel equipment, lunch on the... More

I have been fishing in many places and have caught a ton of fish.. This trip was awesome. The crew was helpful and worked hard to assist us with our catch and release. The entire day was beautiful and the wildlife plentiful. We saved a baby turtle that was caught up in a fishing net. There were dolphins everywhere, the... More

Took Zuma Tour jet boat from Montezuma on an all day excursion to Tortuga Island. Went snorkeling in two locations then lounged on the beach in the sun. They provided snorkeling equipment, lunch, water and beer. My husband and I both found it fun and relaxing and would definitely recommend it to others. Perhaps nothing as clear Caribbean water, but... More

Our family of 5 took a 1/2 day fishing trip with Zuma in March 2014. Owner Ivan is gregarious but did not accompany us on the trip. The guides on the boat were very uncommunicative, despite many attempts to engage them about what lures/bait they were using, what patterns they were following, how they might find the fish, their backgrounds,...

I took the high-speed boat from Jaco to Montezuma in February. It was a quick and comfortable crossing. The staff were polite and handled the boat well. I then tried to cancel my return ticket, because I wanted to return to the mainland via Puntarenas. The manager refused to refund my money even though I spoke to him in person... More

Dear, thank you for you feedback, and we’re glad you liked our speed taxi boat service! Our cancelation policies are clear, we have seen it together, and you accepted them when you made the reservation. We also suggested you many times in a nice way to use the money for other transportation or tour even not operated by us, even... More

We used Zuma Tours for a day trip from Santa Teresa to Isla Tortuga for snorkeling and hanging out at the beach there. We got picked right up at our hotel, and everyone was really helpful with coordinating where we had to go once we arrived at the hub. Then we were driven by boat to the island, where we... More

We booked the Tortuga Island Snorkeling trip on line, which was very easy. When we arrived in Montezuma the next day, the reservation was in order. The host was a very personable young man who obviously loved his job. The stops for snorkeling were wonderful. We saw tons of fish. Our host took to the water and brought up a... More

Zuma tours was a great way to get to Tortuga Island for the day. The price was reasonable, the boat ride was comfortable and safe, and they provided everything they said they would on booking! After a beautiful 40 min boat ride from Montezuma to Tortuga Island, I got to snorkel for 2 hours while my 4 yr old got... More
