Health & Safety Guidelines

Kuna Vela is committed to following the guidelines for owners and managers of Tourist Services within the framework of COVID-19 set forth by the Ministerio de Salud of Costa Rica. We use the sanitary norms that Tourist Services must meet to contribute to prevention, detection and control of this disease. It is our goal to provide a safe, healthy and sterilized environment for our clients, guests and partners and maintain the highest standard of quality.

  • All procedures follow Costa Rica and CDC Covid-19 prevention guidelines
  • Cleaning measures for boats and public meeting places, sanitary facilities and services with: toilet paper, drinking water, anti-bacterial for hand washing, gel alcohol with a composition of at least 70% alcohol or ethanol and paper towels for drying hands.
  • Frequently touched surfaces (handrails, keypads, doorknobs, food trays, armrests, seats, ropes and other fishing gear, bunks among others), must be cleaned with 70% alcohol solution or commercial disinfectants frequently.
