This was one of our favorite things we did on our recent trip to Costa Rica. Our cruise actually left from Coco Beach (not Hermosa). The bus picked us up from our hotel lobby which was super convenient. It was 20 mins or so to the beach and the catamaran. You take a dinghy a

Thank you for your review. Yes, we pick up at Cocoa Beach (Playas del Coco) and Flamingo. We are not surprised that many of our travelers rate this tour as the highlight of their vacation in Costa Rica. We are very happy that you enjoyed the catamaran sunset sailing cruise. It is one of our favorite tours and we take our children and our grandchildren on the cruise very often. They enjoy the snorkeling, beach and the dolphins that always follow and lead the boat especially when we are under sail and yes, the sunset over the Pacific is always gorgeous year around. We certainly agree with you about the food and open bar. There is no shortage of excellent food and drinks for both adults and youngsters and the crew and their service is outstanding. We appreciate you taking your time to write this great review and accurate description. Warm regards & PURA VIDA

Thank you for the positive review, so glad you enjoyed the Sunset Sailing Cruise. The sunset over the Pacific is gorgeous, breathtaking and memorable and we agree with you that the food is well prepared and delicious. This is one of our most popular tours and the one I take my grandchildren on. They really love the sailing and snorkeling. They also love our Sloth, monkey & Waterfall tour.

We absolutely loved our Snorkel and Sunset Cruise. We were picked up in front of our hotel on time and driven a few miles to Playa del Coco, where we boarded a skiff and then the catamaran. The catamaran was clean and the captains were super friendly. We cruised to the snorkel

You are correct, this is a "Must Do" if you are on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. We are so happy that you had such an enjoyable day. I have done this sailing cruise many times and I never tire of taking my kids and grand kids on it. Where else can you see the spinner dolphins riding the bow and playing in the wake while you are under full sail on a 75 foot catamaran. The food is good, drinks are cold and you can fish, snorkel, swim, relax and then see the most gorgeous sunset that you could ever imagine. Watch for the green flash (I have seen it twice) You are correct about the crew, they are wonderful, love their job and it certainly shows. Thank you for taking your time to write and hurry back. "Pura Vida"
