Manta Raya: a Luxury Trip

The Manta Raya catamaran leaves from the port of Puntarenas, providing you with the sight of one of Costa Rica´s most important docks. Currently, this is where most of the international cruise ships dock when visiting the country.

The Manta Raya shows herself off through the Pacific Coast. The catamaran travels through the islands in the Gulf of Nicoya on its way back from the day tour to Isla Tortuga. This luxury catamaran is 71 feet long and 32 feet wide. It is equipped with two giant hammocks stretched between the twin hulls, and two fresh water pools…ideal for relaxing and sunbathing in the large terrace.

Aside from enjoying the boat, the crew will look after you and will make you feel at home. They will bring you fresh tropical fruit and unlimited drinks throughout the trip. The Manta Raya also has a ramp which allows for quick and safe landing directly on the beach.

Calypso Cruises is more than just a boat trip to a beautiful white sand beach. A day with Calypso is a unique opportunity to explore more of this beautiful country from the comfortable deck of a super yacht that was built just for you!
