Herradura Bay

Herradura Bay

Welcome to the Wild

Arrive at San José’s Juan Santamaria international airport for transportation by private car to your superyacht charter. Along the route, take in the vibrant green landscapes of Costa Rica, where over the next 8 days you’ll encounter wildlife you never imagined and explore the wild side of Central America. Meet the motor or sailing boat in Herradura Bay. Settle in onboard or take a walk on Herradura’s long sandy beach. Keen for sportsfishing? Los Sueños Marina is a fantastic spot where you might catch 40lb dorado, 300lb yellowfin tuna and Pacific sailfish.

Superyacht Charter Tortuga Island

Tortuga Island

Monkey Safari

Take your first cruise to Tortuga Island, enjoying stunning views of Costa Rica’s verdant coastline. We will arrange a local expert guide to show you the best secret nature spots to see white-faced howler monkeys, white-nosed coatis, three-toed sloths, toucans and brightly coloured butterflies. Later in the day, grab a paddleboard or snorkel and explore independently in the island’s rich waters.


Rainforest Adventure

Today, leave the sea behind and venture deep into the rainforest by private jet. Land in a banana plantation and enjoy a private tour before a white-knuckle afternoon raft ride down the Pacuare River. Cruising is also available for a gentler experience. Find yourself in awe at the fabulous rainforest and huge waterfalls surrounding you. You will end up at an airstrip, from where you’ll take a stunningly scenic flight back to your superyacht, off Quepos.

Superyacht Charter Cano Island

Cano Island

Sharks & Stingrays

Lying 12km off the coast, Cano Island is known as one of the top dive spots in all of Costa Rica. Designated as a Biological Reserve, it features 15ft reefs, head corals, cup corals, and sea fans, and you are likely to spot sharks, stingrays, dolphins, turtles and morays swimming among them. On your tender ride back to the motor or sailing boat, keep an eye out for the humpback whales and dolphins that splash through these waters.

Corcovado National Park

Corcovado National Park

Vast Bio Rainforest

Today, explore the extraordinary Corcovado National Park, one of the largest lowland tropical rainforests in Central America. Spanning 163 square miles, half of the Osa Peninsula, Corcovado was designated “the most biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic. Encounter puma, ocelot, jaguarundi, margay and endangered jaguars, scarlet macaws, as well as howler, white-faced capuchin, squirrel and spider monkeys. For the evening, return to Puerto Jiménez with your superyacht.

Superyacht Charter Puerto Armuelles

Puerto Armuelles

Cloud Forest

The motor or sailing boat will continue south and into Panama for the first time, where it will anchor in Puerto Armuelles. From here, you will be privately transported to Boquete, home to the iconic cloud forest. A private local guide will take you on a set of spectacular trails up into the virgin cloud forest surrounding the perimeter of Volcan Baru National Park. You’ll spot Resplendent Quetzal, sloths, monkeys and 200+ species of colourful tropical birds, all set among stunning views.

Superyacht Charter Isla de Colba

Isla de Colba

Coral Reef Park

The largest island in Central America, this national park spans 194 square miles and fringed by one of the largest coral reefs on the Pacific coast. The island was a penal colony for political prisoners and criminals from 1919 to 2004, and because of its terrifying reputation, it was left alone and is today a natural paradise. From your superyacht, go deep sea fishing, diving or snorkelling - 760 species of fish have been recorded here, including snappers, barracuda, amberjack and marlin, plus turtles, humpback whales, sharks, whale sharks and orcas.

Superyacht Charter Puerto Jiménez

Puerto Jiménez


Finally, take the motor or sailing boat back to Puerto Jiménez for disembarkation before flying to San José for onward connection.
