Costa Arriba Island Tour
This full day boat adventure takes you to all the best islands on the coast in one day. We start the day with a relaxing tour through the mangroves where your guide will explain the amazing ecology and history of this fascinating organism. Looping round the coast, we head over to Isla Mamey where your guide will leave you alone with some snorkel gear to explore this deserted Caribbean island. When we say deserted, we mean deserted so make sure you take plenty of water and suncream! After a couple of hours of pure relaxation, your boat will be back to take you over to Isla Grande – the larger and more populated island in the area. Here you are free to explore the island, wander up to the lighthouse, chill in a beach-side bar with a beer or drop into a local restaurant or cafe for lunch. Our last stop in this incredible day is to Isla Linton to see if we can spot the spider monkeys.
Note: Please be aware that the amount of people on these islands varies dramatically – Friday, Saturday and Sunday sees lots of tourists coming up to enjoy the beach. If you prefer to see the islands with fewer people, we recommend you take this tour through the week. Alternatively, if you are looking for a snorkeling adventure, we recommend the Hidden Beaches and Snorkel Tour where the spots are chosen specifically away from lots of people to avoid disturbing the fishes!
