There are two agents on the beach, who are in charge of renting and assigning the chairs and umbrellas. We only point the service, in case our clients want to rent them. Kind regards

The price was a little expensive but it was a long day. We started with a typical Costa Rican breakfast, then boarded the catamaran for a 1 1/2 hour ride. The crew brought drinks and fruit to us throughout the ride. The snorkeling was fun, but I have been to much better
