    This was an amazing experience! Our guide shared so much knowledge about turtles, local history and the surrounding area. He was careful to make sure we were able to see turtles coming off the beach, laying eggs, covering them up and babies coming out of the nest. All while keeping the turtles calm and comfortable. He even made sure my husband could come see a turtle laying eggs after he stayed in the van for an hour with our 3 year old when she was too tired to continue past 9pm.

    We had a great experience on Marlin del Rey III . The catamaran was not overbooked, so there was plenty of room to move around, the bartenders and rest of the staff were friendly and efficient, so there was never a wait for one’s next beverage or for some 2nd’s with the food choices.

    We actually saw 2 different sightings of whales breaching the waters, water spouts, large tales and all. It was my birthday and one of the other passengers actually took a picture of my wife and I kissing with the sunsetting into the Pacific, it was a great way to spend a special occasion.

    We had a great tour and got to see crocodiles, howler monkeys, iguanas, and many species of birds in their natural habitat. Our guide was experienced and very knowledgeable. After doing several hikes through the jungle this was a welcomed and relaxing tour!

    Great experience. Ivan and Miguel both worked together to give us the best experience on the river. They really know the area and enjoy their jobs. Gil our bus driver did a great job at giving us a smooth and enjoyable drive.
    The food at lunch very good and pottery demo a little added treat.
    This tour was a great value. Thanks to all!

    Fantastic! Great way to see the area without renting a car. We got a good mix of scenic views and beaches with water and swimming stops.

    Great Experience

    An awesome tour with a very knowledgeable guide who is passionate about the natural environment. We traveled by boat through amazing nooks and crannies in an estuary. We saw many beautiful birds, monkeys, iguanas and a crocodile. We also saw many huge termite nests that parakeets live in. The vegetation is beautiful. We highly recommend this 2 hour tour. The company Discover Tamarindo is the best around. You will not be disappointed!!
    Thank you for this great experience.

    The staff was very friendly, helpful, and let us take our time to explore and enjoy the water at the beaches we stopped at. We got Casco and Javier as our tour guides and we couldn’t be happier! They spotted out various animals and identified them to us. Made sure we were having a great time and were safe. Worth every penny!

    We had a fun snorkelling trip with our family of 5 (kids aged 14, 12 and 9). However, due to our lack of Spanish and the captains limited English we couldn’t communicate that well and trip was less interactive and fun than it could have been. We snorkelled in two places in the same bay and did see one stingray and various fish (and the captain also dived in and showed us a puffer / porkupine fish) and turtles sticking their head above the water on the way back (but not whilst snorkelling). Trip was shorter than we expected and we were back after three hours. Also be prepared to get very wet whilst on the boat. It is a relatively small boat and we got absolutely soaked from the spray on the way out and back.

    The guide (Marco) I believe exceeded my expectations. Everyone in my group was in a pair and I was the only solo individual so I rode with the guide. Which was awesome! I was up front and got to see everything first. He was very good at pointing out the trees, the critters, the short walk in the forest was awesome! Good to get out of the blazing heat for a bit saw a ton of monkeys! Highly recommend it’s not difficult to paddle super easy if you aren’t an avid kayaker.

    The entire crew was top notch. They were friendly, funny and made you feel like you were being entertained in their home. The boat was clean and had plenty of space. Some of the snokle gear was old and needs to be switched out (my mask was so cloudy, it was incredibly hard to see much of anything. The food was freshly prepared and was not your typical cold sandwich and cut fruit...it was surprisingly good! I would highly recommend this experience for anyone wanting to spend time on the water and being pampered!

    An absolutely magical evening thanks to The Caracola Experience. From the breathtaking setup to the gourmet delights, every detail was perfection. The sunset was the ideal backdrop, and the attentive staff made sure everything was flawless. Highly recommend for a uniquely romantic experience. Thank you for creating unforgettable memories!

    We charted the yacht in the morning to take 8 of us out fishing and snorkeling. Everything was looked after, we were picked up first thing in the morning at our hotel and transported to the marina in Flamingo. The transportation was very comfortable and spacious. Once we got to the yacht the staff introduced themselves and helped us board and we were on our way. The boat was lovely, everything you would want for a comfortable cruise. Gilbert was our host and catered to our needs, we went for lack of nothing. Our Captain, Byron, found a great spot to fish and in no time at all we had a tuna on one of the lines. Jonathan, the third member of the crew, very efficiently helped us get the fish reeling in and on the boat for pictures. After fishing the Captain took us to a lovely beach to snorkel and swim while the crew made us lunch. I cannot say enough about the lunch the crew served us, fabulous. They made sushi with the black tuna and grilled jack medallions with our catch and served it along with the rest of the delicious lunch.
    I would highly recommend chartering this boat if you have a group of people, you will not be disappointed. Byron, Gilbert and Jonathan, the crew, were amazing and made our boat tour a morning to remember. Thanks guys. Hope to do this again ❤️
