Beach has soft white sand and the tour we did offered so many things: snorkeling, banana boat rides, layout pad in the water, paddle boats, kayaks, skidoo, beach chairs. Every item cost between about $11 and $14 each, per person. Take cash or credit card to enjoy these fun offerings. The... More

The staff was very friendly. They are looking for extra tips which are greased with the "happy juice" ,a rum drink, they serve continuously on... More

This is a great tour for people that like to relax, snorkel, go on a cruise, or booze with other fun people! The boat is very well maintained and service is excellent. I love the lunch and all you can drink rum punch that is included with this tour. I booked my tour through Joe at Costa Rica Waterfall Tours... More
