Beautiful sunset cruise and snorkeling
Cynthia_G, Jan 2023
Beautiful sunset, cruise! The crew was wonderful and attentive. The snack trays were beautiful snorkeling was a lot of fun. I would definitely do it again.
Great sail
Marlene_H, Dec 2022
We had a great sailing experience. The staff was attentive to our needs. The day was perfect, sun with enough wind to sail without the motor. They used the motor to get to the snorkeling spot. We did not snorkel but we did go a shore and explored the caves. Afterward, the motor was turned off as we sailed back to the sound of music and the view of the setting sun. I would do it again.
My wife's 50th birthday vacation!

I highly recommend the sunset cruise. Andres, Joshua, and Israel were super kind and knowledgeable... And make an excellent rum punch. We saw whales and rays jumping out of the water! We explored a shallow cave and hung out on the beach. We had a great time! Also, what better way to end your day than watching the sun set. Beautiful!
Amazing tour
Christine_L, July 2022
This tour was so amazing! We loved that it was a small group on the boat and the more intimate experience of sailing versus a catamaran. We enjoyed the sail out to snorkel and snorkeled in a beautiful area that you could swim ashore. We climbed to a lookout point, explored caves and even saw monkeys! The crew timed the sail back perfectly to sunset. I appreciated that the crew offered drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) throughout the excursion and excellent snacks for the way back! I highly recommend to anyone!
Incredibly beautiful afternoon
NADINE_G, July 2022
I had an incredibly beautiful afternoon sail, I can't recommend, Kuna Vela enough! The crew was wonderful and we really got to see some lovely spots in the Gulf, and also had the good fortune of seeing dolphins off the bow and lots of breaching rays. The sunset and a double rainbow were absolutely gorgeous.
Sunset cruise
Megan_M, June 2022
Very attentive to the passengers. Food was good. Had a good time snorkeling. Awesome beach. Loved how the captain sailed away from rain.
Great sunset!
Lee_H, Apr 2022
Hanging out with friends watching the sunset. Fruit tray and sandwiches provided by on board yummy! You have the option of swimming on the beach or snorkeling, our group decided to swim on the beach. I recommend you grab some noodles - we did not but got lucky and was able to borrow some from another group.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
We are very glad that enjoyed your Sunset & Snorkeling Tour with Kuna. We are happy you enjoyed the fresh fruit platter, corn chips served with guacamole & Bean dip as well as our tray passed sandwiches. Yes you are correct, once we find a nice cove you have the option to snorkel with our guide, float around the boat with noodles or enjoy the beach! When you choose the beach I do agree; grab a beverage and a noodle and enjoy those white sand beaches!!! We hope to see you back aboard Kuna Vela on yout next visit to Costa Rica! Pura Vida Lindsay, Clint and Kuna Crew

We appreciate your kind words about our amazing crew, they will be so happy to hear you enjoyed their service. We hope to welcome you back to Kuna Vela some day!!

Laura_B, May 2021
Great time! Boat was a sailboat that I preferred over the catamaran. Staff was awesome and very attentive. We had a perfect sunset!

Excellent Customer Service and Beautiful Views
Brandi_B, Mar 2021
This was a fantastic trip! From the wonderful communication with Clint, the owner, to the hospitality on the boat with Diego and Israel. We wish we had had the chance to snorkel, but unfortunately, the waters were not clear enough that day. There were four of us gals and we all loved the sunset tour. There was a couple on the boat with us and they had done the same trip the year before. To me, that speaks very highly of the company. Thank you Clint and crew!
Response from Host, Apr 2021
Pura Vida! It was so nice to meet you and we at Kuna Vela are so delighted you had a pleasant experience during your sunset sail! Even though the waters were a little cloudy that day, we are glad you could still take in the beautiful Gulf of Papagayo scenery. We wish you all the best and hopefully we see you again on your next trip to Costa Rica!
Beautiful sunset cruise experience
Sarah_M, Mar 2020
Great boat and crew! Snorkeling wasn’t great because the water visibility was low on our day. Crew compensated by taking us on a cave exploration excursion and then a little whale watching jaunt. Food was delicious as well. Will definitely be booking again next time we are in CR!
Amazing from beginning to end!
jessicadaoud, Feb 2020
From beginning to end an amazing trip! We were greeted by Lindsay who did a great job introducing the team. They were all amazing. The drinks kept coming, the food was delicious, and the company even better. Andreas documented our trip and they send you all the photos free!! Everything was well planned and the day went by smooth. We left feeling like they were family. They make a point to connect with their guests. We will definitely book again with them!
Response from Host, Mar 2020
This review filled my heart and says it all! Exactly how we want all of our guests to feel! Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind and thoughtful review capturing what Kuna Vela is all about! We sure hope to see you back some day soon aboard Kuna Vela! Fondly, Lindsay, Clint & Kuna Crew
