Cocos Island / Itinerary


ITINERARY (sample 10 day trip)

Plan to arrive in San Jose one night before departure, as there are sometimes delays with air travel.
It is also recommended to always purchase travel insurance in case of any possible cancellations.

Day 1: SAN JOSÉ.

Transfer by minibus to Puntarenas
Confirm pickup time, this may vary dependent on tides.
The boat can depart within 32 hours of noted times depending on ocean conditions. Contrary to what people think, these conditions are usually fine and hence, departures are on schedule. This is a factor not in our control.
