What people are saying about Costa Tropical

Great thing. My husband and sons were over the moon. Nice surroundings, nice photos as a souvenir. The organization could be better - the tour was postponed by phone from 4pm to 4.30pm and in the end it started at 5pm anyway ... Meeting point (Local No. 2) not easy to find because there is no house number in Paseo. GPS only brings you to the beginning of the beach, but the meeting point is at the end ...

Pick-up on time, the two crew members were very attentive to us and a special mention for allowing my 6-year-old son to "steer" the boat and for the paddle trip. I recommend including for families with toddlers 3 years old. You just need to be well equipped. A big thank-you.

Great trip along the coast to a wonderful swimming location. Even in May the coastal waters were warm. Very nice hosts
