    This is such a beautiful beach. We spent a few hours here. Lots of super-soft sand and lots of shells. We walked for miles. great beach for families or couples.

    This was a great excursion on the water in CR, we were on a 50th Birthday celebration trip to CR and we chartered the boat for a private sunset cruise for our group of 11. Prior to booking I spoke to Geneva a couple of times and she was very helpful in explaining the choices of food and drinks available/included. Closer to our excursion date we got a email from them inquiring about our preference for the drinks and also confirming the number of guests who were vegetarian and non vegetarian as the majority of our group was vegetarian and precise directions to the pick up point. On the day of the excursion we arrived exactly at 1.30 pm and the crew was waiting for us in their small dingy to take us to the sailboat. Our crew Bismarck, Jonathan and Jeffrey were all amazing and after a initial safety briefing we set sail and the drinks started flowing. They have a vast variety of cocktails, beer, juices, soft drinks available and Jeffery and Jonathan kept them flowing as we sailed out of the bay, The entire group had a splendid time on the deck listening to music connected on their Bluetooth device.Captain Bismarck informed us that he would find a good spot with less waves where we could swim/ snorkel and about 2 hours into the sailing we anchored off a quiet cove. The crew helped us all with snorkel gear and Jonathan swam with us showing us the area to snorkel to see some marine life, unfortunately we didn’t see much.As soon as we got back up on the boat we were served the cowboy caviar ( dip of corn, beans etc ) and tortilla chips followed by soft tacos ( bean for the vegetarians) and ( chicken for the non vegetarians) along with a selection of sauces. The tacos were excellent and enjoyed by all. Unfortunately shortly thereafter Mother Nature intervened and there was a massive Thunderstorm accompanied by thunder and lightning, the rain was incessant and visibility was almost zero, Captain Bismarck safely anchored the boat close to the shore and told us that we would wait there until the storm passed, unfortunately the weather conditions did not change and after over an hour being anchored our group decide to head back to shore. The crew safely navigated us back to the pick up point and before disembarking asked us to have a final drink and popped a champagne for our Birthday boy. Despite the disappointment of not being able to enjoy the sunset we are grateful that we got 3 hours of great weather. If you are looking for a top notch experience,book Serendipity without hesitation.

    We had an absolute blast fishing with the Bushwacker for two days! The 40 years of experience shines through, amazing guide! Would love to get out fishing with Skeet again!

    We booked for a regular dive and we had soooo much fun! We saw giant mantas! Actually they were around our instructor kind of playing all the time, uncredible! We went to catalina islands two consecutives dives. The boat very comfortable, two floors and a bathroom. Very easy to jump in & out from the boat. Gear in good condition, good brieffing that make our dive way easy. We were only 4 divers in total wich makes a big difference ( we checked other companies on the area and groups were up to 10 divers) 60 min each dive and a tone of fish! Visibility around 80 feet and warm water. 100% recomended

    My wife and I spent five days in Guanacaste at The Westin and this day was the highlight of the entire trip!! This boat is in excellent condition and very clean. Melissa is a fantastic person to meet and the service was second to none. She is very knowledgeable of the local area and her goal is obviously your enjoyment. The bonus is a gorgeous day on a very rare 32' Panga Boat which is classically stable, strong and comfortable to move around with fully shaded hardtop. We are planning another trip already and will contact Melissa for help with local arrangements and a few more days on this classic boat with her! There are the fancy resorts and big sport fishing boats....then there is Sweet Melissa!! Don't make the mistake of not meeting her!! The combination of this classic fishing boat design and Melissa will set your trip apart from any other fishing trip you've ever taken!
