Playa Tamarindo: Sunset Sailing and Snorkeling Tour
- Duration: 4.5 hours
Our experience was good but we were stood up on the first confirmed date. We were all up at 4 :30 am to meet our bus at 5:30 but no show that day because the driver couldn’t find us. We chose date and enjoyed our day. The hot springs we went to were great but the showers/change rooms lacked cleanliness and most of the showers didn’t work. The fella at the front desk was less than friendly and not very accommodating.
My tour guide was Nacho, and he showed up right on time with ice cold drinks and snacks in case we needed them. He was a pleasure to tour with, pointing out many fun facts about the surrounding area, and showing us an amazing place to stop for lunch. The park itself was rather limited on nature viewing, but we did get to see several types of birds, a few monkeys, and a baby crocodile.
Interesting and informative guide through our drive and the boat trip. Saw many "hidden" animals due to good boatman and guide. Guide "called" to howler and capuchin monkeys and encouraged them to come closer for perfect views. One curious capuchin actually came on the roof of our boat to checkout the tourists!
We went on the sunset snorkeling tour with the Marlin del rey company. They were professional and safe but still fun. The food was incredible, the open bar was a nice treat and the price was very reasonable.
Everything about the tour was interesting, from the drive to the river to the journey up and down river. we saw plenty of wildlife and our guide Jose was friendly and informative. Highly recommended.
