Kuna Vela Sailing Tours (Playas Del Coco) - Morning Snorkel and Sailing Tour
"What a great morning for a cruise! Probably one of the highlights to end a fabulous week in Costa Rica:) No problem finding them, they found me! Got off, right on time! Headed to Playa Hermosa to pick up the rest of the travelers. The staff was very professional and made everything so easy. From the Rum punch, to the fresh fruit and yummy chips and guacamole and beans! I was traveling alone but had so many wonderful conversations with everyone onboard. There were several families with kids, an older couple and myself. Never seemed crowded and everyone talked and had an amazing outing! The communication before the trip was also very on point. I had a few questions since I’d never done an excursion like this by my self. The response was prompt and put any insecurities right at ease:) OH AND, we got to see what appeared to be a mama humpback whale with a couple of babies! I had not expected to experience this. But the captain obviously knows his stuff! KUDOS! One more thing, the sail back was even more peaceful with the motor off…ahhhh. Love the splashes off the side on my 👣💜 Great value for the money. Would do it again and recommend to anyone looking for getting offshore! Thank you again! Pura Vida!"..."

"The hike was very informative as the guide really knew his stuff. The flora changed as we proceeded up and the fauna various colorful birds and howler monkeys added to the feel of being in the jungle. So many tree species and the hanging vines brought back memories of Edgar Rice Buroughs Tarzan novels as a kid. The final overlook stop of Playa Samara at sunset was a plus."..."
