About
Lazy Lizard is the original catamaran company in Flamingo and Tamarindo area, with over 20 years experience creating unforgettable memories for all our travelers. Our catamaran tour starts at Flamingo Beach where our professional, friendly and experienced crew welcome you aboard. Breath in the refreshing Pacific Ocean breeze while being served refreshing drinks by our attentive crew. You will be sailing along the golden coast of Costa Rica where you have the opportunity to see the vast marine life the area has to offer (dolphins, whales, turtles, rays and more). The captain will take you to a crystal water point where you can play in the water, snorkel with a guide or individually to explore the reef, kayak or relax onboard the boat . After, we will restore your energy with a delicious tropical midday meal (gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options are available). The setting sun as you sail back to shore is the perfect conclusion to a memorable afternoon.

Our family of 8, including a 5 year old girl, 11 & 13 year old boys, and a 73 year old grandpa had a wonderful time on the Lazy Lizard snorkeling and sunset catamaran cruise. The drinks were plentiful, the staff was attentive but safe, and the dinner was delicious. One of the staff (Luis?) even went above and beyond throwing on goggles and fins to immediately dive off the boat to retrieve my husband’s cell phone when it fell in the water! We couldn’t believe he actually found it. They took great care of our group and we had tons of fun! Highly recommend!

My husband and I spent a wonderful afternoon on the Lazy Lizard. The Captain and crew were great hosts! They timed the afternoon perfectly to guide us to wonderful snorkeling and kayaking spots while keeping an eye toward the sun. Dinner was delicious with wonderful healthy choices (if you wanted them). Watching the setting sun was the highlight of the trip. The crew managed to pull together the perfect playlist to have us all singing and laughing our way back to harbour(I’m sure their cocktails had nothing to do with our engaging sing-alongs).

We spent 29 nights in Playa Flamingo. We had 3 sets of friends come down to visit us and each time we went out with the Lazy Lizard crew to catch a sunset. Great fun with a very entertaining crew. The 2nd trip we actually got to see whales and dolphins. Snorkeling was great fun, food and drinks were wonderful!

This was a FANTASTIC trip. Our guides and the Captain were dynamite: they led us snorkeling to great spots, found starfish for us to hold, even an octopus! We got to see a Puffer fish up close. They helped me reel in a fish (then we let it go). The Captain spotted whales and we watched for around 45mins while they flapped their tails and played. They had a great lunch, snacks, and drinks for us, and we enjoyed seeing the sun set from the catamarn. It was an incredible trip and we want to do it again! Lazy Lizard had outstanding service, totally worth it. Thanks, we loved it all!

This was our second time on the Lazy Lizard, both times were awesome. The crew is great, entertaining, knowledgeable, and take excellent care of their customers. Unlimited drinks and the food is incredible! Delicious tacos, pasta salad, and other sides. Joy guided us on a very fun snorkeling tour, before sailing back and enjoying the sunset.

What a great time! From when we stepped on the beach the crew from boat 3 was great. They were fun and super kind. As soon as we got on the boat we were given drinks and were aloud to explore the boat. Then once we set sail the crew was informative and played fun music the entire time. We were also given AMAZING pineapple empanadas. Once we were at our snorkeling spot they helped everyone get into the water. The tour guide even dove and got me a star fish off the rocks. Once we got back on the boat, dinner was served. Best tacos in the entire country. Everything was so fresh! The crew really made it the best experience in addition to make sure everyone saw the sunset. They even had a little dance party at the end!

Nine of us went on the sunset cruise. We were picked up in Tamarindo and driven to Playa Flamingo.
The name of the cruise is a bit of a misnomer as it starts with a brief cruise and then we anchored at a cove where we snorkelled and sea kayaked for an hour. Following this we cruised as we had lunch. Lunch was excellent. Far exceeded expectations. Tacos, nachos, salads and cocktails. The actual sunset was stunning and the return to Playa Flamingo after dark was beautiful.
During our cruising we saw dolphins and manta rays. Several puffer fish were seen while snorkelling.
Highly recommended.

I have been on several snorkeling trips over the years. This was not your average boating, this is an entirely memorable experience. Attentive, friendly, energetic, and fun crew! They brought the positive laid back vibes while creating a fun experience. From the fun music, energetic crew, the custom fake tattoos, homemade lunch, I’d highly recommend this trip to anyone. We saw dolphins, eel, sea snake, numerous variety of fish, starfish, and sting rays.

Joy and his team were the absolute best. They were very accommodating - they waited on us the whole time, bringing us all the drinks we want. The dinner was really good, too. We were very fortunate to see whales and stingrays on our way out and then on the way back, they paused outside the bay so we could watch the sunset.

I booked the sunset catamaran cruise with Lazy Lizard for myself, my husband and our two sons (17 and 14). Our crew was Gulliber, Nicholas and Franklin who worked very hard to serve the 27 people on board.

Even with 27 people on board, the boat didn’t feel crowded at all. Our drink orders were taken almost immediately.They had a wide variety of drinks on board.

We were taken to a beautiful bay where to allow us to go snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking or just swimming and sunbathing on the beach.

The food they served was fresh and delicious. Don’t even bother going out to dinner they will feed you well.

The highlight was the sunset, of course. And the dolphins - which the crew spotted and circled many times to allow us to watch the dolphins play.

Music played all throughout the cruise with a good mix. The crew was diligent in keeping us safe and in good spirits.

We would highly recommend Lazy Lizard and the crew of Gulliber, Nicholas and Franklin!
