Extremely hospitable crew (Josi, Luis, Captain Pablo). They gave us an exceptional time, and were very flexible, offering us many choices of activities. We also had dietary restrictions (kosher), and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Highly recommend the trip, whether as a family (as we did), friends or couples.

Met Roberto on the beach while visiting the Riu Guanacaste. He was very helpful with booking an ATV tour, a sunset cruise and a massages on the beach for our group of 4! He was not pushy and took the time to listen to us to know what we were looking for. I definitely recommend Charlie's Adventures!

Two hour tour ( I think it was longer) through the jungle! AWESOMENESS! We're able to take our teenagers and allow them to ATV, they loved it! Thank you so much for helping us with the ATV but also the snorkeling with hibiscus..... We had a fantastic time!

The crew of 3 (Josi, Eric and the captain Pablo) were simple amazing. Extremely entertaining. Hospitality was on the level of rock stars. Did a little fishing, private BBQ on the beach, and the BBQ'd what we caught, water cave exploration, snorkling, watched the dolphins crest on the trip back, and watched the sunset at the end of the trip....

We booked our day trip with Alex on the Beach and it was subcontracted to Charlie's Adventure Tours. There were only 4 people on this particular trip and 3 crew members, Josi, Pablo and David. The crew was fantastic and treated us like royalty. They were constantly asking us if we needed anything and were very, very attentive. They had... More

We booked our sunset cruise with Alex on the Beach and it was sub contracted out to Charlie's Adventures. Let me say these guys are just plain fun. They were very laid back but at the same time very attentive. They picked up our group of 19 on the beach by our hotel (RIU). We took a small motor boat... More

We did a sunset cruise with Charlie's Adventure, although we did not book through them. We actually booked with Alex on the Beach, which was then subcontracted out to Charlie. We had a large group so our tour was private. Cost was very reasonable! The boat left at 2 pm and we got back right after sunset, so shortly after... More

We had such a good time on the sunset cruise last week. It was VERY windy, and we were sure the trip would be cancelled. But the captain got us safely around the point and into calmer water- all under sail ( the only boat out there to actually put up their sails). we had a good time snorkelling, althought... More
