There are so many fun activities in Costa Rica that it gets fairly difficult to decide which adventure to choose. Vacation time is so limited that you don’t want to waste a minute on a dud of an excursion. So, here is one idea that you are sure to enjoy during your stay. And it is safe for the whole family.
Fun Activities in Costa Rica
One very popular tour is visiting Tortuga Island. It is safe for the whole family and a fun filled day. It starts very early in Jaco where you’re picked up at one of the local hotels. The tour includes a Costa Rican breakfast and later a 4-course gourmet lunch right on the beach of Tortuga Island.
You can relax and have fun on Tortuga Island playing volleyball, tightrope walking on a slackline or just relaxing in a hammock with a cocktail. The stay on this island is 5 hours and meant to just enjoy life on the beach and the beauty of the ocean.
In the afternoon everyone boards the Manta Raya for an ocean tour of the many protected islands that are nearby. Of particular interest are the Bird Sanctuary of Guayabo Island and the former prison island of San Lucas. Later you’ll be back on land to have the bus take you back to Jaco.
This tour is rated 5-star by its visitors and is $115. While Tortuga means turtle, the island isn’t where you go to see turtles, oddly enough. It is visited for beach going fun and to experience the beauty of the island. It is an excellent choice for your list of fun activities in Costa Rica on the Pacific side.
When staying in Costa Rica with a group, the luxury villa Casa de Luz is highly recommended as a place to stay on the Pacific side of Costa Rica.
