Kuna Vela - Real Sailing Sensation

American Owned and Operated 

Kuna Vela Sailing Tours is American owned and operated. Our highly trained professional crew is Costa Rican with a combined 50 years of experience on the Gulf of Papagayo. We love sailing, nature, and people.

As a 14-year-old studying Spanish in Cleveland, OH, I always dreamed of living in a foreign country. Years later, I somehow found the courage to take a leap and start a sailing charter. I love the sea and sailing, and I want to share the experience with you. Book a charter today!

kuna vela sailing tours logo Amazing half day on the Kuna Vela

We had an amazing time sailing, snorkeling, and relaxing on the Kuna Vela. Andres (first mate) and Israel (captain) made the experience great. They were very accommodating and kind. Andres pointed out a bunch of sights to see, led us snorkeling, and took pictures the entire time of us which we now have as great memories. We saw Humpback whales, dolphins, and sea turtles while sailing and a variety of fish while snorkeling. We definitely recommend this tour. It will add a really memorable experience to your trip to Costa Rica.

kuna vela sailing tours logo Amazing Trip!

Wow what an outstanding tour. We were lucky enough to be the only family on the tour that day and what an experience. Andreas and the captain were exceptional. We sailed round Papagayo and saw incredible marine life including dolphins and whales. We snorkelled for a little while and although visibility wasn't great we still saw a fair few fish. We were treated to delicious fruit and snacks and what seemed like a never ending supply of beer! They found us the perfect spot to watch the beautiful sunset. The trip was our highlight to Costa Rica and I would even say the best excursion we have ever done in our travels. CJ and Kuna Vela are the best. Book you won't be disappointed!!

kuna vela sailing tours logo Best. Excursion. Ever!

CJ has a great thing going with this tour. My boyfriend and I had a great time and will definitely be doing this again when we return. The captain and Andres were AMAZING! Andres really does a good job of showing you the sights and ensuring that your sailing experience is nothing less than stellar. His photography skills were great and we really appreciated all the photos he got for us. There was only one other couple on our tour, so we really felt like we had individualized attention. We also saw dolphins which was a perfect ending to our sail. We can’t wait to do this again and to recommend it to others!

We took two different snorkel/sail trips while in Coco. The first one was with Kuna Vela. The ship was great...two person crew for the four of us got us great attention. Very personable crew and served us water/ beer and punch...whatever we desired. Of course, We are divers and hadn’t seen beautiful coral in years in this hemisphere. The music and crew made us feel so welcome. Fruit plates were a really nice touch and sandwiches and chips were plenty! We saw sea turtles all along the way and the porpoises led us back to Coco! The morning trip feature more fish and the early sail is well worth it.
