We booked Zuma tours for transfers from Tambor to Santa Teresa, Santa Teresa to Montezuma, the water taxi across the bay- where we saw schools of Dolphins!!- to Manuel Antonio, and a transfer from Manuel Antonio to San Jose. Every part was smooth and seamless. The divers were in time, courteous and knew exactly where they were going! I will... More

Through where we were staying a group of us booked a snorkeling trip off tortuga island leaving from montezuma. The roads in this region are less than smooth but our driver did his best to provide a smooth ride. Once there we were greeted and directed to the beach where we boarded our boats. They were very clear in explaining... More

Unfortunately, our experience wasn't like the other reviews. We went on the snorkeling tour to Tortuga island. The trip started out great. Beautiful boat ride to the snorkel area. They dropped off people that didn't want to snorkel and took us to the first snorkel area. We snorkel for about 20 minutes and then told us to get back on... More

Dear, thank you for your feedback, we understand your annoyance, and the truth here is that we had difficult sea conditions during July, with June being the hottest month in the history according the global news, the red tide was very strong and gave us some headaches, furthermore, we had to cancel many days for this reason, ruin a bit...

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.

ZumaManagement, Manager at Zuma Tours, responded to this review

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.
