Calypso Cruises originated the One Day Tour to Tortuga Island Costa Rica from San Jose and Jaco more than 40 years ago and since then has escorted nearly 1 million happy tourists on the original Yacht Calypso and now on the Yacht Catamaran Manta Raya. This is the only tour to Tortuga Island that includes two hot meals and has a CST – Certification of Sustainable Tourism (no single use plastic cups, plates, tableware, straws or plastic bottles). Calypso’s award winning “All Inclusive Tour” is known for consistent quality, personal service and excellent food (featured in Gourmet Magazine) served on a white sand beach in casual elegance.
For these reasons Calypso’s “Tortuga Island Cruise” remains the most popular one day tour in Costa Rica and
CALYPSO’s complete One-Day-Vacation is a tour-de-force of all that’s magical about Costa Rica and is necessary before one can claim to have fully explored COSTA RICA.
