This trip was absolutely amazing!! We had an incredible boat tour, saw a beautiful sunset and even got to fish and caught dinner. One of the best we ever had and we’re still taking about it.

Miller from Guanacaste Dream Vacations was communicative and informative. He texts me the day before to confirm the pick-up time and to remind us to bring towels with us from our resort. My girlfriends and I had an amazing time!!! We were able to connect our phones to the speaker and play music and just enjoy the view. They fed us too! Our captain and tour guide (Pierto) was very sweet, helpful, and showed us two different beaches, and took us around the coast. As promised, we watched the beautiful sunset. We got to see dolphins, stingrays, and turtles.
A peaceful and relaxing day

A peaceful and relaxing day. The crew were helpful and informative. We've done many sailing excursions with cold snacks, but this time we enjoyed a delicious whole snapper lunch prepared on an open flame complete with plenty of photo ops of vultures and “costa rican raccoons” milling about looking for scraps. The sunset was beautiful as expected, and the crew allowed us to take tons of pics. The boat is nothing fancy, but the overall experience was perfect.
