Amazing!

This tour blew all the tours I've been on in the US out of the water. AMAZING! So many dolphins, great information about the area and fun snorkeling as well. Highly recommend.

Really fun to see the pod of Dolphins - don't think you are allowed to plane board or get in the water with them anymore (which is likely good for conservation). Snorkeling was a total bust - we are spoiled from Hawaii - but there is no reef, and what is there, is dead. Highlight was trip to Osa Wildlife... More

I had asked the owner to arrange a tour for us a few months in advance and he said that he would try and set it up if he could get enough people to do the tour. We took a very early flight into Puerto Jimenez and after getting a cab to the hotel they were right there to greet... More

This is a great hotel. Clean, friendly staff, right on the water. Most, if not, all of the rooms have AC, which is much needed in the sultry, humid weather. Room rates are a little bit more expensive than surrounding properties, but in this case, you get what you pay for. There is no breakfast. The grounds are immaculate, their... More

Wanted to get word out that this was an unbelievable tour today. Went in search of whale shark first but unsuccessful. On our way back there were hundreds of dolphins. No lie. This was a great trip. Very enjoyable, even on a cloudy day.

The boat was comfortable; the guide - Josh, was great and very knowledge; we saw lots of dolphins; nice selection of fruits and snacks were served on board. The plane-boarding was amazing for one of us but the rest felt rushed. Our only wish: better control of the schedule and set of the expectation. We requested that plane-boarding was the... More

This boat tour was the only thing on our 2 week vacation to Costa Rica that we did not book ahead of time. The owner of Cabinas Jimenez recommended it to us because there was a sighting of a Whale Shark the previous day. We decided to give it a go since we had an open day and we are... More

Captain John, First Mate Sam, and Cruise Director Josh provided our group of 8 with a terrific time cruising around the Golfo Dulce. We started with a short mangrove tour while the tides were favorable, allowing us to spot a roseated spoonbill and blue heron. They then took us over to the Wildlife Sanctuary (reviewed separately), and afterwards they took... More

We didn't stay at Cabinas Jimenez, but went over to check out the beautiful grounds and inquire about the boat trip to the animal sanctuary. We spoke with John the owner and let him know that the next morning was the only possible day we could do it. He said he would try to make it happen. He called us... More
