Always the scenic and comfortable way to travel, this taxi boat service saves you both time and effort and gets you where you need to go. The trip between Montezuma and Jacó only takes an hour, during which you'll have the opportunity to look for dolphins, whales, manta rays and more. The boats land in Montezuma at Montezuma Beach, and in Jacó at Herradura Beach.
The taxi boat leaves daily for Jacó from Montezuma at 9:30 AM. The return trip, from Jacó to Montezuma, is made at 10:45 AM. The standard taxi boats can accommodate 10 to 18 people. Additionally, there are private taxi boat services, which can accommodate up to 5 people, and are capable of leaving at the time of your choosing (however, no later than 3:30 PM, as it gets too dark to navigate through the water).
This route is also very convenient if your starting destination is Mal Pais - Santa Teresa since Montezuma is only 20 minutes away. We can also accommodate drop off in Manuel Antonio.
During high tide and challenging weather, it might be necessary to wait until the water is calmer. Also, there are some periods during the year that for safety reasons the departure location must be changed.
