Father’s Day, March 19, promotion: fathers, to Cíes for FREE

On Father’s Day we are launching a promotion to Cíes, an original gift with no expiration date or programmed obsolescence. Free of charge, no raffles.
Father’s Day is celebrated on March 19 in most countries around the world. That day is celebrated as St. Joseph’s Day in the Catholic tradition.
But this is not the case all over the world, for example, in Costa Rica, since 2018, Father’s Day is celebrated on June 17. This date was established by a bill adopted by the Legislative Assembly of Costa Rica, with the purpose of making the date coincide with the date of payment of salaries and thus stimulate commerce and commercial promotions for profit. This mercantilist intention of Father’s Day does not seem to have caught on among Costa Ricans, who are reluctant to adopt the new celebration date.
Click here to learn more curiosities about the celebration of Father’s Day in different parts of the world.
Far from the intention of our Costa Rican friends, in Naviera Nabia we propose FREE trips for parents who travel to Cíes with their families (of any type and format, but always 2 adults, one of them the parent, and at least one child).

Cíes Islands, a paradise forty minutes away by boat, the best gift for Father’s Day

The Cíes Islands are part of the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia. As a National Park, they enjoy a kind of protection. From the seabed to the conservation of species or the control of the proliferation of plants and other invasive species, the entire ecosystem of Cíes is specially monitored.

Going to the Cíes Islands at this time of year has the advantage of finding them already in spring hatching, without many visitors. In addition, our guides accredited by National Parks will accompany, in small groups, those people who decide to make a route in the Islands, which allows to know first hand, by expert staff, the thousands of details that in an individual visit may go unnoticed.

Visiting a National Park like the Cíes Islands on such a special day can become a memorable experience for the rest of your life. An experience that does not spoil, expire or break. A wonderful gift, no doubt about it.


Limited seating, best to reserve

The Cíes Islands, like the Island of Ons, have limited access for visitors, so it is important to book in advance in order to choose the most appropriate time and avoid being left without a place at the last minute.

Remember: places on the islands are limited. If you get lost, they fly!
