Package Itinerary

We depart for a scenic early morning drive to the Pacific seaport city of Puntarenas. Upon arrival, you will be met by the experienced skipper and crew of the yacht Manta Raya. She is specially designed for comfort and safety and will take you on an exciting cruise on the calm waters of the beautiful Gulf of Nicoya. The tour includes transportation to and from Puntarenas, a sumptuous seafood buffet, a cruise among more than seven islands, and time for snorkeling.

The Nicoya Peninsula:

The Nicoya Peninsula is the perfect off-the-beaten-path escape. Explore Blue Zone living & detox from daily stresses at this international wellness destination. The peninsula is habitually overlooked by many travelers, but those willing to stray from the beaten path will be met with stunning natural landscapes and seclusion.

The rugged, mountainous landscape and laid-back lifestyle are ideal for any traveler in need of a little rest and relaxation. Heralded for its magnificent beaches and long dry season with beaming sunshine, the Nicoya Peninsula is 80 miles long averaging about 31 miles wide.

Water sports and wellness define much of the character of the area. Separated from the Guanacaste plains in the north by the Gulf of Nicoya, the Nicoya Peninsula is an isolated paradise and water wonderland of eco-epic proportions.

Montezuma Beach
The remote village of Montezuma has gorgeous rainforests, waterfalls, and surrounding beaches. The beach here is extensive, but is rocky and can be a challenge for swimmers. At low tide, travelers can explore and swim in the tide pools. Travelers can also hike in the nearby Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve on the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula.

Cabo Blanco has especially beautiful white-sand beaches, nesting grounds for native bird species, and abundant wildlife. For an adventure, check out Montezuma Waterfall south of the town. Hike along a stream past a couple of smaller falls before coming to the upper falls, the real crowd-pleaser.

The best beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula are lauded for their seclusion and laid-back ambiance. Some of the region’s beaches have been discovered by surfers who are opening up heretofore hidden sections of gorgeous shoreline.

Samara Beach
Samara Beach wraps around a long horseshoe bay with calm water – perfect for swimming! Kayaking, snorkeling, and sport fishing are also popular off Samara Beach due to its calm waters. The long beach disperses some of the crowds that gather on the weekends for a relatively calm and laid-back beach experience.
