Lazy Lizard Sailing Costa Rica

Open and Private Charter Catamaran Sailing Tours from Playa Flamingo

Sailing Tours in Guanacaste

Lazy Lizard Sailing offers catamaran tours from Tamarindo Beach, Flamingo Beach and Conchal Beach in the beautiful Guanacaste Province. We have over 16 years of experience providing safe, family friendly-excursions. Our catamarans are fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy a morning adventure on the water or to sail through the most beautiful sunset Costa Rica's Pacific Coast has to offer. If you are looking for snorkeling, ocean kayaking, or a private charter for you special event, join us on the catamaran during your stay in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Why Lazy Lizard Sailing

We've raised the bar when it comes to safety with plenty of life jackets in adult and kid sizes, life rafts, and the most experienced sailing staff in the region. Did you know we also have sea kayaks and zayaks for children as part of our tour? We always have plenty of snorkel gear for everyone along with noodle floats for those who just want to relax in the water. We don't have the largest tour group sizes (our open catamaran tours are actually among the smallest in Playa Flamingo) and that's just fine by us! We keep a lower guest-to-crew ratio that allows us to maintain our excellent customer service and safety ratings. When it comes to food and drinks, Lazy Lizard Sailing has you completely covered. We provide a brunch on our morning tours and bocas with a late lunch on our sunset tours. You'll find nothing store-bought aboard our ship — our chef makes it all up fresh from seasonal ingredients. And adults won't want to miss our signature Crazy Lazy Shot! Did we mention we keep the drinks flowing for the entire tour? We offer the best selection of domestic beers along with mixed drinks, and juices.

Enjoy a full afternoon of sailing and snorkeling or relax with Lazy Lizard on the catamaran. Experience the most stunning sunset on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast from the best vantage point possible — out on the water.

So glad we chose this cruise. From beginning to end it was great! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Snorkeling could have been better but we just went for a kayak instead and it was great. Read More

Went on the same cruise as others who gave this experience an average rating. There was nothing average about this tour! The process was easy - from signing up to getting a ride back to the condo. Read More

This ends up being an all day trip which wasn't completely clear to us in the beginning. That being said, it's a great time on the boat for snorkeling, a meal, open bar and sunset. We even saw whales and dolphins. Read More
