It’s not Paradise, but close to it! Tropical climate, blue skies, picturesque landscape, many micro climatic zones within driving range, natural preserves cloud forests, steppes, unspoiled beaches and mountains in three awe-inspiring volcanoes in the centre of Central America just 2 hours from southern United States border.

For the first time since inception we can now offer to an intrepid entrepreneur in Costa Rica the possibility of owning the crown jewel of tourism in one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

The longest running and most profitable
one-day tour in the country is now for sale.

Founded in 1975 and continuously operated by the original owners, this incredibly successful boat tour of the 23 islands in the Gulf of Nicoya has become available for purchase for the first time.  After more than 30 years of daily operations, the owners have decided to retire and are carefully searching for someone they can confidently count on to continue the legacy.

An average of 1,500 passengers per month are generated through a well established network of travel agents and a state-of-the-art on line reservations system managed from a central office in San Jose.  Passengers are transported daily, directly from their hotels, to the Pacific port city of Puntarenas by luxury motor coach and escorted by well trained bilingual guides.  The company’s headquarters in Puntarenas are located in a turn of the century, fully restored water front villa which includes a deep water dock, commercial kitchen, public restrooms and owner’s residence. On site enclosed parking is sufficient for tour buses and private vehicles. A coffee shop and souvenir store are possibilities for passengers waiting to board the custom designed 72' catamaran tied to the flower lined dock.

Designed and built in 1994 by multihull architect Paul Lindenberg, the catamaran includes ideas based on over 20 years of practical experience with a previous 50' passenger boat. This modern vessel is licensed to carry 100 passengers in comfort and safety and is specially designed with a bow ramp to land it’s passengers directly on the beach.

The destination is number one in Costa Rica's guide books, a pristine blue water, white sand, palm shaded tropical island 19 miles off shore.  Here, the highly trained crew prepare and serve a gourmet lunch surpassing in quality and elegance that which many passengers have experienced in the most sophisticated restaurants anywhere in their travels and literally thousands of their testimonials attest to the superior service, fine cuisine, spectacular scenery and seamless enjoyment that this world famous tour has provided over the years.

With the highest recommendations from every Costa Rica guide book and many international publications (Forbes, Islands Magazine, Gourmet, just to mention a few) this is a unique business opportunity for the discerning few looking for a well run, highly polished, turn-key enterprise that is making money in an expanding market.

Despite world wide economic trends, tourism in Costa Rica continues to increase.  Its reputation for warm and friendly people, close proximity to the United States and the internationally recognized ecological awareness of her government will maintain the growth of tourism in Costa Rica for many decades to come.
