About
Lazy Lizard is the original catamaran company in Flamingo and Tamarindo area, with over 20 years experience creating unforgettable memories for all our travelers. Our catamaran tour starts at Flamingo Beach where our professional, friendly and experienced crew welcome you aboard. Breath in the refreshing Pacific Ocean breeze while being served refreshing drinks by our attentive crew. You will be sailing along the golden coast of Costa Rica where you have the opportunity to see the vast marine life the area has to offer (dolphins, whales, turtles, rays and more). The captain will take you to a crystal water point where you can play in the water, snorkel with a guide or individually to explore the reef, kayak or relax onboard the boat . After, we will restore your energy with a delicious tropical midday meal (gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options are available). The setting sun as you sail back to shore is the perfect conclusion to a memorable afternoon.

I will start by saying the food that they served was outstanding. All four of us agreed that the tacos were the best ever. Captain Josuay, Franklin and Andreas were on top of it the entire time. Gracious and entertaining. Homemade salsa, sauces, pasta salad, and more. The great service starts immediately and does not stop until you leave. Great rum punch, as well as other bar drinks, beer and wine. As much as you would like.

The guides/captain were very nice. Food and drinks were good. I am downgrading this review because the back area was extremely slippery. We had 5 different falls that occurred on our trip. Multiplied were while the people were holding onto bars and trying to be careful and still fell. You can’t use your shoes even if they are boat friendly and there is no traction pads of any kind. One teen slipped and hit his head on the seat level. Two mom’s slipped in the same area holding handled and hurt their knee/elbow, a dad slipped going to the head and another kid slipped and fell as well. This is a boat problem not people problem.

This was actually our second time sailing with the Lazy Lizard and they continued to be an excellent choice for a boat tour! My husband and I did a sunset cruise on an anniversary trip four years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it so when we decided to bring our six year old on her first international trip to Costa Rica, we knew that we needed to add them to our itinerary again!

This time we chose the morning cruise and would highly recommend, especially if you are traveling with kiddos! It was a little more relaxed and laid back and I felt like we got more time in the water. The captain and staff were excellent and so very hospitable; they hit that hard-to achieve balance of both letting you enjoy your time without being in the way, yet appearing with a drink or a helpful tip at the exact moment you needed something.

The meeting process is super easy, the “blue steps” at the beach are clearly marked and simple to find, as was parking along the road. The scenery along the sailing route is of course is beautiful and we dropped anchor in a lovely inlet where we all got the opportunity to choose to ocean swim, lounge on the “Lilly pad,” snorkel, kayak or paddle board. For anyone who doesn’t feel comfortable in the water, they have pool noodles you can use (recommended even for strong swimmers as it helped us see where everyone was) or choose a life jacket, or just stay and lounge on the boat! They provide all the gear you need for anything you choose to do.

While we all played in the water, the crew put out an incredible brunch spread with burritos, fruit, cookies and much more and there is an open bar available the entire trip that includes unlimited drinks of everything you can imagine from sodas to rum punch.

Before we went, I had a question about the booking process and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate and respond quickly. Their customer service is top-notch.

My family all agrees that this was the absolute highlight of everything we did on our week-long trip, and we will definitely book again the next time we are in Costa Rica. The best experience ever! Book it!

Everything was amazing! From the service to the activities, everything was great! Highly recommend. We went as a group of 16 girls and 2 chaperones and everyone had the best experience. The crew was excellent. We had an incident with other passengers and the crew did not hesitate to stand up and say something to them. Josue, Andres and one other guy on the crew made it so memorable! One of the best experiences in Costa Rica. Would absolutely do it again. The sunset was superb! The snorkeling was a one of a kind experience! The whole experience was surreal and unlike anything else.

My husband and my adult son and I did the sunset cruise last week. We were picked up at the Westin on time and we were dropped off In Playa Flamingo by the beach area. A small boat picked us up and we were brought to the catamaran. You leave your shoes in containers on the beach prior to boarding the smaller transfer boat. The crew is friendly, helpful and very concerned about passenge.r safety We had a briefing, drinks and empenadas as we were on our way . We sailed to a cove area for swimming and snorkeling. The area was calm. They have all kinds of floating devices as well as stand up paddleboards. There was a guide in the water for the snorkel tour. He brought up a star fish and pointed out an octopus for all to see. He answered questions about the area and sea life too. When we came back on board, we had tacos, all different kinds of salads and salsas, fruit and chocolate chip cookies. It was a delicious feast. I can't speak for anyone else but my family didn't get sick. The sunset was absolutely beautiful that evening. We had a fabulous time and highly recommend this trip.

We took 11 high school senior boys that had Recently graduated From high school And 4 dads on this morning cruise. It was amazing. Everyone loved the activities and the food and the music. Jordan was a great host and he even let us fish. Franklin was also awesome, Helping everyone with snorkeling. And Luis was the best captain ever. I am definitely going to try and bring my family back to do that excursion again. Thank you for a memorable experience.

Captain Josue and co were amazing! The highlight of our experience in Costa Rica. The scenery was unforgettable. The crew kept the drinks flowing and the food was fantastic. All the people were really fun to talk to and the boat was not crowded at all. Pura Vida!!

DO NOT EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING ON THIS CRUISE or risk becoming violently ill. Me and my family of 7, others from our hotel and others who we met on the catamaran who stayed at an airbnb and we saw at the airport got very sick following this cruise. Some of us required medical attention in Costa Rica. Illness ruined the rest of our vacation. It took two doctor's visits in the states and well over a week to recover. I sent an email to the company to alert them and they never replied.

Unfortunately, my family of 7 did not have a good experience on this excursion. On the trip, they serve food and drinks. About a day after, all 7 of us were moderately to very sick to the point of having to go to the infirmary of our hotel. While in the infirmary, we ran into a group of 3 who were also on this excursion and 2 of them were sick with the same stomach issues (the third of their group was not sick but he only had bottles of water on the boat). While at the airport, we ran into a couple who did not stay at our resort and both of them were sick with the same issues as us the day after this excursion. For a much anticipated vacation, this experience really casted a shadow on our trip. If you do this excursion, I highly recommend you eat before and only drink the canned beer/bottled water they have on the boat.
