We did the aqua combo tour. Our guide was a lot of fun and the scenery was amazing. The snorkeling wasn't great. It was on volcanic rock and there just weren't a ton of colorful fish like you would see in the reefs. But it was still enjoyable. Lunch was tasty, fishing was fun. I would definitely recommend this trip.

You can't go wrong with this trip... We booked the "Aqua Combo Tour" for 30 people to be a great conclusion to a week long mission trip in Costa Rica. This trip was... In a word... FANTASTIC. Carlos (the son of the owner) was captain of the boat on our trip, and took awesome care of us... they were ready... More

Terrible tour agency. They cancel your tour at the time to go onboard. Not because of bad weather, simply because they cannot plan really a tour. Which should be their expertise. In addittion I'll have to wait 3 days to see if I'll get my money back. In summary, this agency should not be operating.

There was a Charlie's tour office at our resort (Allegro Papagayo) and we found the service there very good. Helpful, informative and not pushy at all. The prices are also really quite reasonable. We booked and went on a boat trip across the bay to Coco Beach. I don't remember his name, but our guide was fabulous and worked so... More

We used Charlie's Adventures for a snorkeling trip while staying in the Gulf of Papagayo. We were staying at the Andaz and were picked up right at our hotel beach. The boat arrived right on time. It is a full day of boating and snorkeling and lunch. Our guide, Bruno, was great. The trip to the bay for snorkeling was... More

Charlie's was really awesome. We were happier with their tours than the ones we booked through our tour rep. The person who helped us book was super helpful and friendly, and helped us make the best of our time there. There was no pressure, and they actually suggested various items to us so that we didn't double up on the... More

Me and my girlfriend went on the Snorkel Combo, which was $50 each. It ended up only being, her, myself and the tour guide, who was also the boat driver. The boat itself looked like a lawsuit waiting to happen. It was old, uncomfortable, and looked derelict. It turned out we had to waste about 45 minutes dropping off all... More

We did a half day Aqua Tour and had a great time snorkelling, fishing, BBQ on the beach. We saw dolphins, rays, pelicans, vultures, tons of fish. The BBQ on the beach was very good and some of the fish we caught they cooked up for us. Bruno our guide was very funny and kept us entertained all day

I went fishing with Charlies Adventure tours in December 2013 and had the best fishing day of my life. I caught a 10-pound Mahi, an 8-pound Mackerel, a small grouper, a small Bonito and a 70-pound Roosterfish! It was a wonderful day; thanks Carlos. Pura Vida!! Mike P., Houston, TX
