Absolutely wonderful, from van pickup, through open bar boating to snorkel area, to brisk but comfortable sail, a great experience for multigenerational family group with 3 young kids! Absolutely fabulous crew!!! Attentive, informative, gracious Uriel ensured basic boat safety, snacks, service of full range of beverages, brief snorkel instruction and accompaniment in the water. Captain Luis managed the catamaran beautifully. Thanks and Wow!!

Thank Bill H

The staff are super nice and friendly but I’ve been to many snorkelling catamaran’s and this one was the worst. The catamaran is small and they overfill it forcing some to stay at the back and get sea sick. They need to be less concerned about profit and bring about 10 less people onboard.

The snorkelling was a fail and the secluded beach (Honeymoon Beach) was meh. We had no visibility even following the guide. We saw some fish but nothing to write home about. Swimming to the beach had many debris in the water and it’s a tiny beach with two large trees that you are warned not to touch so going to he beach is kind of pointless. If they knew that visibility would be poor they should discount the tour. We paid $85USD for basically a boat ride with stunning views of the sunset and a turkey sandwich, nachos and fruit and veg. Not worth the price if you ask me. I must say though that being in Costa Rica for one week and admiring the sunset every day, this boat ride had the best one!

TIP: They don’t serve food until after you snorkel so come with snacks on board or a full stomach. So eat lunch beforehand and use their meal as an early dinner or snack.

This review is more about the company and not the staff. The staff were excellent and even went around with shots before the end and applied tattoos for the kids which they loved. The company would get five stars if they were flexible and more concerned about their client’s experience and not profit.

Lazy Lizard was a surprise. It was well organized. There were 3 guides present. The boat was clean, the music was good, it included free drinks, and a choice of water activities. All needed equipment was provided and it included lunch with fresh local fruit. The sunset and photo opportunities were many. Talented sailing and a tranquil end to the evening.

The crew on the Lazy Lizard was outstanding - engaged with the guests, fun-loving attitudes. The snorkeling was so-so, to be expected for this area, but the snorkeling guide went into the water also and helped identify fish, etc which was very helpful. The food was excellent - sandwiches, chips, fruit, veggies, soda, beer, and cocktails - an abundance of all. We enjoyed this so much we would have done it one more night but sadly we were leaving the next day. Bring a towel, camera, flip flops, swimsuit - simple.

This trip was one of our favorite adventures in Costa Rica. The crew was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We had our 80+ year old parents with us and the crew was so kind and careful to make sure they had a good time.
The snorkeling was really just a good swim. But we adapted and turned the deck into a competitive diving platform - the belly flops were epic!
The highlight was the slow sail back at sunset. The music was perfect for this child of the 70’s and the kids didn’t groan too loudly at our singing because everyone else was singing too. The sunset and warm breeze will remain in my memory for a lifetime.
