My family and I went on a Zuma snorkelling tour to Tortuga Island and were not disappointed! We had an amazing time! The guides were nice, helpful and informative. While on the tour we saw pufferfish, eels, starfish, flying fish, angelfish, and many other tropical fish. On the island we were treated to a typical Costa Rican lunch and had... More

Trip was spoiled due to the masks stinking of diesel most of us could only last 5 -10 min. if you go with them take your own mask.

Dear customers, thank you for your feedback. This is a bit strange because the snorkeling gear goes on the bow and the gasoline tanks are on the stern, but it looks that something happened that day with the handling. All the masks have a plastic smell but not diesel, we'll check this out with our guys to improve about this... More

We booked the tickets online ahead of time, but my guess is that you can do it the same day. There is only one trip per day (11:00AM to Montezuma, and 9:00 to Herradura) so you must make arrangements on where to spend the night or nights if you want to explore the other side. We took the water taxi... More

We arranged a private boat tour of snorkeling and fun on Tortuga Island to celebrate our friend's 40th birthday. We asked in advance if they could decorate the boat and/or provide a birthday cake, and they did all that and more! The boat was beautifully decorated with balloons and streamers (which remarkably stayed attached during the boat ride) and were... More

We had an amazing boat expedition from Montezuma to Isla Tortuga. We're backpackers so we're picky with the activities we choose and we are very happy we chose to do this one! Not sure if we had a lucky day or if it happens for most but our boat was surrounded by easily over 20 dolphins! They jumped out of... More

Had a great ride. Bus picked us up on time in front of our condo. Saw dolphins on way to Montezuma. Professional staff. Highly recommend. Made reservations online, make sure to look for off season discount codes.

This was our second trip to Isla Tortuga and Douglas was our guide on both occasions. I really can't say enough about the whole crews' positive attitudes and willingness to go all out to make sure you have a good time. My impression was that these guys thoroughly enjoy their jobs entertaining the tourists while showing them around. At the... More

Ivan, his family and staff have made our trips into Montezuma more than just a vacation. They make us feel like family, from the beach house rental to the trips to Tortuga Island. Everything we needed for an outstanding time was just a quick call away. Their knowledge of the area, the ocean, what to do and where to go... More

We did evert hinges through Zuma tours and it could not have gone better. Zip lining, snorkeling and boat taxis. What an amazing and friendly staff. We will always use them every time we visit. They made us feel like family.
