All aboard!

Join us for an unforgettable journey. We’re a couple of Canadians with a passion for sailing and hospitality. We can’t wait to show you Playa Herradura from our intimate sailboat, The Reliant.

Choose your adventure! We can sail for your whole trip and keep an eye out for sting rays and other wildlife. We offer snorkeling, paddleboards and boogeyboards. Or just relax with a cold beer on a floatie. It’s up to you!

Looking forward to sailing with you,
Chris & Joy Gillard

We are located in Playa Herradura, which is 5 miles north of Jaco.

The nearest airport is SJO in San José (about 2 hours away).


From Jaco, travel on the main road (Costanera) heading north, about 3 miles.  When you get to the only main intersection in Herradura you make a left.  There is a bright yellow pedestrian walkover and a flashing yellow light, so it is hard to miss. There is also a shopping center on your left at the flashing yellow light with a rather large lighthouse in the corner of the parking lot.  Travel the road about one mile and you will come to a dead end at Herradura Bay beach.  (You will pass the entrance to Los Suenos on your right just before you arrive at the beach).

Once you arrive at the beach, you will see parking to your right and left, and a row of bar/restaurants to your left. Joy will be across from the first restaurant on the corner, called Puesta Del Sol.  Joy will be sitting on a concrete bench so you will see me as soon as you reach the dead end at the beach and will have on a bright pink hat.  Once we meet, Joy will call the water taxi and will proceed to the sailboat.
