A great day at a beautiful beach. All excellent. Only downside was that it took almost one and a half hours early in the morning to pick people up at different hotels.

Love the tour . Percy will make you feel at home. He literally took the time to know everyone’s name. He’s the best host ever . He sat and had personal conversations with everyone. The amazing staff as well. Enjoyed every moment from the food to snorkeling and the banana boat. Thank you very much for the amazing experience

A fabulous day that I highly recommend. The trip to and from San Jose was a bit long, mainly because we were in the center of the city. People staying west of the city had a much shorter trip.

Overall a great experience! Pros: beautiful location on the island with many activities included(snorkel and banana boat) and not included (jet ski ($25-50) and paddle board ($15) Beach chairs $15 Food was wonderful with smallish/regular size portions Live entertainment was enjoyable The beach is a cove, perfectly swimable and turquoise water. My allergy required an accommodation was respected with other options. Drinks were great and fruit was offered all day. Attentive bilingual guide and great staff (Jonathan and Manta Ray staff) Cons: There was NO pickup time itinerary based on the hotel you were being picked up from. They have a fixed route yet they tell everyone waiting to be ready at 5:15am even though some didnt get picked up until 8am. We did not receive our guaranteed 5 hours on the island. We had 4 hours. We traveled almost 6 hours so not getting the full time matters.

The Calypso cruise tour was one of the best tours I have ever been on in my life. The staff made all of us feel comfortable and were attentive to our needs. The hospitality was a 10/10. The breakfast and lunch was really good too. The bartenders on the cruise were amazing. I would definitely do this tour again.

Our tour leader was Percy. He was extremely personable. We were picked up early at our hotel (very prompt!) and driven to Calypso Tours where we had a nice hot breakfast. We then boarded the catamaran and travelled to Tortuga Island. There was a crew of about seven who made our day SO relaxing! Was a beautiful day with optional snorkeling and banana boat ride. Lovely four course lunch and time to enjoy the white sand beach and even a little bit of wildlife roaming around! Sun was setting as we came back across the Gulf of Nicoya. It was a long day, but very pleasant! Recommended if you enjoy boating and the beach!

The staff was excellent, and boat and island awesome. We were supposed to get an email about the website to view pictures, but never did. How can we access the pictures taken by the captain and staff?

Had a good experience and the staff was really good and friendly. Only downside was that I had left information about food allergies as they asked for, but it was not like they did anything with that information. So had to settle for less food then everyone else.
