We traveled to Costa Rica with 2 other families and booked a deluxe beach BBQ with 2 boats for our group of 14 (6 adults and 8 kids). We were picked up at Playa Ocotal for a ride around Monkey Head Island and a cruise to look for animals. We saw huge rays swimming below the surface, smaller eagle rays jumping out of the water, dolphins following the boats, and turtles floating on the surface. We were then taken snorkeling where our guides pointed out a variety of wildlife. After snorkeling, we took a side trip down a small river to checkout the alligators and birds. We then headed to the beach for a fantastic BBQ that included beef, chicken, and lobster along with some local fare. After the huge feast, our group engaged in a variety of activities including paddle boarding, tubing, water skiing, snorkeling, fishing, building sand castles, playing with hermit crabs, and relaxing on the beach. The crew of 5 were led by Rolbin and Leo who were excellent and knowledgeable guides very fluent in English. They played with the kids, entertained the parents, and made sure that everyone enjoyed themselves. It was a great way to spend a day and highly recommended.
