A 5/5 if there would've been more sea life. Pros: Great group of tour guides, beautiful beach, and a tasty lunch. Hats off to Douglas for making it a great day. Con: snorkeling was not so good the day we went, wasn't much to see.

I took the boat from Jaco to Montezuma on a nice day and it was a fast fun ride. They were also very helpful booking transportation for me from Montezuma to Coco.

Tasty lunch on the Island and a couple of hours of beach time. Kayaks, paddle boards, jet skis, and banana boats available for rental. Boat ride back to Montezuma back before 4... More

The chaps on the boat we excellent. They couldn't have done more to help and explain the route. The shuttle bus driver was a nutter. He spent the whole journey weaving in and out traffic and on his phone taking calls or reading messages. :)

We took the taxi boat to Montezuma last Friday morning. The trip across was great and really smooth. We didn't see any wildlife, but apparently they had seen dolphins and whales on earlier trip from Montezuma to Herradura. The guys were great and efficient, loading and unloading everyone's bags so that we could be on our way when we got... More

Took a shuttle from Santa Teresa, then speed boat to Jaco where we were supposed to be taken to the bus station in Jaco. Most people had booked further travels with shuttles and when I tried to explain that I was continuing my journey with local bus services I got questioned several times why with an irritated voice. They also... More

What a great trip! Marlon and Ulysses were great and super attentive to everyone. It's an amazing trip not only because of the sights and adventures but everything is so well organized and planned out. No lack of fresh fruits and drinks to keep everyone hydrated. Our guide even went to dive down and take footage of the small sharks... More

We took the water taxi between Herradura and Montezuma. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the boats and the life jackets, and the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They were out to ensure we had a great experience, in addition to getting from Point A to Point B. They'd stop the boat so we could see the dolphins... More
