Your day begins with local transport to Herradura beach where you join the luxury yacht Paradise for the sail to Tortuga.
On arrival you will go off on a snorkeling tour of a coral reef. Enjoy the wide range of colourful tropical fish you will encounter. For those who would rather not, don’t worry you can go straight to the beach and enjoy the white sand and tropical sunshine.
Relax and try a happy Juice or two. This our own rum punch and it is available all day
Lunch is served in the shade of the palm trees at our own “rancho”. BBQ chicken in a special sauce with rice and salads.
In the afternoon relax and enjoy the beach, or swim in the crystal clear waters, before relaxing on the return journey.
Dolphins are a normal treat on this trip, with whales and turtles seen regularly.

Isla San Lucas
San Lucas Island is a very special place in Costa Rica. For over 100 years it was home to a brutal prison, often compared to Alcatraz, and Devil's Island. Since the prison closed in 1992, the Island has been off-limits to visitors. Now Samantha Tours have been given permission to run a One-day Tour to the Island. The tour departs daily from San Jose, and additional passengers can join the tour in Puntarenas.
We tour the old prison buildings in the morning, and after a freshly prepared lunch, we spend an afternoon on the beach at the beautiful San Lucas Island. we sail back to Puntarenas via the south of the island so that passengers can enjoy enchanting sea views, as the sun sets in the west.
During your time on the Island you will encounter a variety of local wildlife. The Cong monkeys (Howlers) are very common, and because the island has been isolated for so long, they are not really used to people. They will usually continue feeding (or dozing) you go past.
This really is very special day, and one that you should not miss.
