Kuna Vela - Real Sailing Sensation, Fishing and Surf

Kuna Vela Sailing tour was created by Captain Yann Riou who travelled round-the-world and fell in love with Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Thanks to his expertise and passion for navigating, we provide you a friendly and personalized service. Our enthusiastic crew is ready to share with you his broad knowledge of marine life and his concern about an environmentally friendly behavior.


We are pleased to have obtained “ecological leaf”, level 2 that repays us for our constant efforts to put into practice the recommendations and directives, with the purpose to be more friendly to the ecological environment in which we work as a tourism company.

Sustainable tourism development is a balanced interaction between the appropriate use of our natural and cultural resources, improvement in the quality of life of local communities and the economic success of this activity, which contributes to our national development. This program includes too being part of the national code of conduct to protect the children from sexual exploitation. Improving sustainable behavior is possible in Costa Rica thanks to the Sustainable Tourism Certification CST.

What our clients are saying...

Our group initially met each other when we started a hiking tour across the CR. At the end of the trip, 14 of us said our final goodbyes on a private sunset sail aboard Kuna Vela. Israel and Ricardo were the right mix of helpful and unobtrusive. The drinks were flowing and the trays of fruit and dip were delicious. There were several sailors in our group and Israel handed over the helm to allow them to add sailing the Pacific Ocean to their resume. We sailed to a beach then introduced the foam noodles to the Brits of our group (loved them). But, the magic happened when we settled down to watch our final sunset together. The music was playing softly and the second the sun went over the horizon the song ended. It was incredible and almost indescribable. The culmination of our 2 weeks could not have been accomplished any more perfectly. Thank you so very much to Israel and Ricardo!


Nice and relaxing sunset cruise with snorkeling. This was not your typical party boat. 12 guests in a friendly setting. Captain Israel and Ricardo are top notch.

Sunset cruise

Michael F, Viera, United States
We chartered this sailboat while we were staying at Riu Palace Hotel a few miles up the beach. Since the hotel is rather isolated, we thought it might be nice to view and explore beaches, mountains, and sea life from a sailboat. We did not make a mistake. The crew on this boat went out of their way to make our day enjoyable. From snorkeling with our own private guide, to catching up with flying devil rays and sea turtles, our little family had an unbelievable time. All crew members were extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the adventure. And after a morning of snorkeling and exploring an exotic beach, we returned to the boat to find a delicious meal waiting for us. I can’t thank the Kuna Vela owners enough for providing us with a day we surely will never forget.
