    What to Expect
    Start the day with pickup at your hotel selected hotels only), then transfer to the pier to meet your private boat and personal guide for the day. This is the perfect time to create the perfect itinerary for your group's interests, whether you'd like to explore far-flung beaches, spot the whales and dolphins that appear seasonally, scout undiscovered surf spots, or simply enjoy the sun and scenery on the Gulf of Papagayo.

    Motor past the estuaries and beaches that edge the Gulf of Papagayo and Snake Bay; when it's time for lunch, head to a quiet beach for an oceanside barbecue. Relax in a comfortable “beach camp” that your guide prepares, then sip a cool beer, soda, water, or juice as lunch is prepared. Dine on a fresh, Costa Rican-style meal of freshly-grilled chicken, fish, and sides.

    The afternoon is yours to enjoy exactly as you wish: join your guide for a hike down the beach, snorkel in the pristine waters, or simply relax and soak up the sun on the beach. At the end of the day, board the boat for the return trip to the original launch point. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
