Separating the Nicoya Peninsula from the mainland of Costa Rica, the Gulf of Nicoya is one area in the Central Pacific region that must be explored by land and water! Our Boat Tour for San Lucas & Jesusita Island is an incredible combo tour that incorporates nature, history, and culture in a full day adventure of fun!
Our boat tour is available for visitors staying in San Jose, Jaco, and Manuel Antonio. Your day begins with breakfast served on our bus in transit to the pier in Puntarenas where we will jump on board one of two vessels: The Great Bay´s Princess Catamaran or the Bay´s Princess. Both are well-equipped with snacks, beverages, and live entertainment to transport you to two of Costa Rica´s most beautiful islands.
Named for the infamous San Lucas Prison, our first stop is bursting with Mother Nature´s wonders and one of Costa Rica´s cultural heritage sights. Follow our knowledgeable bilingual guide down paths shrouded with breath-taking vegetation as you hear the rich history of the island that housed Costa Rica´s worst criminals. Now a gorgeous nature preserve that many howler monkeys like to call home, the San Lucas Prison was officially closed down in 1991.
Jump back on board our spacious boat and get an eyeful of Bird Island! Birders will enjoy spotting our feathered friends as Costa Rica boasts over 600 species. Our next stop is Jesusita Island, where you can explore the paths and pristine beaches while a delicious lunch is prepared for you. 3 hours are allotted at this island so there is plenty of time to swim, relax, play beach volleyball, and take in all the sights. We´ll arrive back in Puntarenas by 6, which allows you time to make dinner plans with family or friends in town or back at your hotel.
