After a short drive from the Puntarenas pier enjoy a 90 minute boat ride through the beautiful and small charming islands that adorn the Gulf of Nicoya.
In the Gulf of Nicoya, there is a heavenly archipelago of several islands with lush natural beauty and a sanctuary that is home to seabirds, white sandy beaches and the flora and fauna of our Central Pacific region. Tortuga Island is located in this beautiful archipelago. Situated 12 nautical miles from Puntarenas, Tortuga Island (called by local indigenous people “Tolinga”) has an area of 120 hectares and is maintained as a protected forest which has been awarded the Ecological Blue Flag for more than five years. This distinction is awarded to beaches in our country that have pollution-free waters. Due to its geographical features, Tortuga Island’s waters are clear turquoise, which are optimal for swimming.
A delicious lunch will be waiting for you. Explore the island and enjoy the beach, relax or play beach volleyball. Optional activities such as snorkeling and banana boat rides are available at an extra cost.
