Isla Tortuga

This was my 2nd time to Puntarenas, this time though I arrived by cruise ship for the day. I had planned a group day trip to Isla Tortuga for some sun and fun. Let me start by saying that Puntarenas is safe for the most part, very rustic, don't expect hi rise resorts, this is where the locals are and many fisherman keep their boats here. If you want cheap eats, some shopping and a bit of local flavor then check out Puntarenas

I'll do a seperate write up for Isla Tortuga
