Zuma tours has taken us from SJO to Montezuma, by shuttle to Jaco and boat to Montezuma, and also by boat from Montezuma to Jaco, and also on a tour to Tortuga Island. We've also taken the shuttle from SJO to Montezuma and back via the ferry at Puntarenas with other companies. The boat is way better: faster, less expensive, less effort, more scenic. You do have to get your feet wet at Jaco and Montezuma beaches and get some sun on the trip, but they take care of getting your bags on and off the boat. My only reservation was that we were some minutes late getting off the Jaco beach, and the young men running the boat lacked some skills in handling the engine and gas, leading to some unplanned starts and stops that got me a little wet. The alternative, shuttle and ferry, was crowded, hot, at times uncertain, boring, along several bumpy roads, and required us to haul bags up and down stairs as part of a tedious line on the ferry.

We attended both Tortuga island tour and private horseback riding organized by Zuma Tours. I think the Tortuga island tour was absolutely perfect! Everything went well and the staff was really friendly and made our day wonderful.

I also appreciated a lot that the horseback riding tour was done by a local guy, Marvin, who really loves his horses and takes good care of them. Also he was really friendly to us.

In general I have to say that everything went well with Zuma Tours. Even though I had a lot of questions they replied my emails quickly and helped a lot. I can warmly recommend the company to everyone.

The day we went for the la tortuga island snorkel excursion was a gorgeous weather day. However, there wasn't much to see when snorkeling and the beach was average. I was 4 months pregnant at the time and would not recommend the boat ride to anyone more that 3 mo pregnant or anyone with back problems. If you have motion sickness, forget it altogether. The ride was fast and rough, and that was on a day with perfect weather. Overall, if you are looking for a change in scenery, the la tortuga island may be a good option.

Zumba did a great job with our Tortuga tour! Professional and trustworthy! They look extra time with our group even spending more time with us.

Great snorkeling, and the guides are awesome! Was totally worth the money. A wonderful day trip. It was clear water and the fish were everywhere. You can rent chairs to sit on at the island. Lunch was to die for!
