Isla Tortuga In Costa Rica

Sitting at the gateway to the picturesque Gulf of Nicoya, what better welcome than a two-island formation that could well be Costa Rica´s favorite island. Isla Tortuga is the collective name for the islands of Tolinga and Alcatraz, and its popularity is justified. It is a favorite one-day trip to enjoy the fantastic vacation vibe it exhales as visitors explore the small vegetation-topped isle, relax in the tropical sun on the picture-perfect beach, and have fun in the water all day.

Tortuga Islands is just in front of the Curu Wildlife Refuge on the Nicoya Peninsula and across the gulf from the coastal towns of the Central Pacific. After an exciting 45-minute boat ride over the pristine blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, welcome to this island paradise with its white-sanded beach surrounded by clear-turquoise waters that are perfect for swimming, kayaking, SUP, and even snorkeling.

The island also has a nature trail that takes you to its summit, opening wildlife viewing opportunities. Watch out for monkeys, peccaries, birds, and insects that live the island life in relative peace. Combine some hiking with relaxation under a palm tree on the beach that offers impressive views of the pristine gulf waters and beyond. Isla Tortuga is an exciting day of tropical fun in the sun, worthy of a visit.

Isla Tortuga is a submarine lover’s delight for the snorkelers and scuba divers too. Thanks to its idyllic location, it is visited by manta rays, dolphins, octopuses, and sharks, among other marine animals creating a wonderland under the sea. Isla Tortuga is an adventure on all levels.

Twona Friends offers daily tours from the Central Pacific to the idyllic Tortuga Island for a day of fun and treats from the moment you step foot on the boat. The staff will ensure that your island adventure is top-notch in every possible way.
