AMAZING tour! The crew (Joel was our main tour guide) was awesome- very friendly and accommodating. The weather was beautiful for a day out on a boat and for snorkeling. And the island! OMG- SOOOO PRETTY! Clear waters, white sand beaches, palm trees, and random wildlife roaming the island. And the lunch that was included was delicious and there was... More

First time to Costa Rica, so very excited. Visiting our daughter who was studying abroad. Looking forward as this was our first trip out of the country. We were somewhat limited in our activities, having to use buses and taxis as our means of transportation. We booked a tour with Zuma and made arrangements to travel there, leaving our hotel... More

That's not a fair review at all. After you sent us an email saying that you wouldn't be able come because your taxi didn't arrive and it was rainy..., our answer was: what do you mean Lynn? That was a light rain, and at 8:30am here it was over, we told you that over the phone at 8am, in Costa... More

Our experience was not as positive. Average snorkelling due to poor visibility (not the guides fault but we shouldn't have been told that visibility was good when we booked in Montezuma). Lunch was excellent. The problem was that the beer came out at 10AM and half the tour folks were pretty heavy drinkers so that by lunch the beer was... More

Dear Customer, our apologies for have not filled your expectations about the service, you know it's hard sometimes for the guides to control the drinkers while their helping and showing others nice things in the water, and never misses someone wanting to advantage of the beers of others..... But we take notes about your feedback and we'll try to improve... More

Lots of colorful fish to swim with. Lunch followed at the beach with plenty of time to lounge on the beautiful beach and enjoy the water. Be... More

I was in Montezuma with my mom for 5 days and this was 1 of 2 excursions we did while in town. I highly recommend the Tortuga Island snorkeling excursion! While boating along the coast and seeing all the beaches (plus a waterfall), we were served fresh fruit and beer or juice. We got to snorkel in two places for... More

We did the all-inclusive day tour to Tortuga Island and had a BLAST! Our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and fun. We were fed fresh fruit & drinks on the way to 2 snorkeling sites before heading to the beach for our lunch, which was delicious, and beach time. Would most certainly do again!

The staff is bilingual, with a good level of English. We did a snorkeling day trip to tortuga island and it was pretty adventurous. The guide on the boat explained many things while on the boat ride towards the island, the boats were equipped with completely new engines and safety equipment. While snorkeling the guide gave good advice where to... More
