BEST tour of the week! I was here a week and went on several tours (volcanoS, coffee, city, churches, museums and others!).
Dayana, the tour guide, was brilliant and full of informative facts! We were picked up at our hotel, taken for breakfast and then to the coast, where we boarded a large passenger boat and headed to Turtle Island!
On our way we saw islands that appeared to be a woman lying down in the water, a turtle and others (like when you look into the sky and see images in the clouds).
During the bus trip and also on the boat, Dayana filled our heads with relevant, important and detailed information! I am a History major but never studied Costa Rican history and was extremely impressed by her knowledge and rapport with us!
When we got to the island some of us went out snorkeling while a few remained on the island.
Snorkeling was delightful and the water felt incredible. After some snorkeling, I did a lot of swimming!
Meanwhile, on the island, they had fruits, drinks, snacks or people laid on the beach (there were towels, umbrellas and chairs to rent)! We later had a delicious lunch and finished up with coffee! It was heaven with no turtles! ;)
I had read reviews saying that "they abandon you on the beach." You're on a beach! What, do you want them to hold your hand there too? You have a bar, a restaurant, sand, a beach and swimming (Chad and I spent time, on chairs, near the water, taking turns buying rounds of pina coladas and margaritas).
Great tour with an AMAZING tour guide and a GREAT driver (pilot)!
