Costa Rica Yacht Charter Guide
Discover the extraordinary wonders of the Costa Rican rainforest on a bespoke yacht charter
Blanketed by rainforest and teeming with wildlife, Costa Rica is a tropical oasis both above and below the waterline. Not your typical beach getaway, a luxury charter along this relatively undiscovered coastline - be it onboard a crewed motor yacht or sailing boat - will open your eyes to 6% of the world's biodiversity packed into only 51,000 square kilometers between the Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, making this the ultimate playground for those seeking an adventure.
Infused with that South and Central American charm, Costa Rica is quickly becoming a major player as a unique destination to rent a luxury crewed yacht. Thinking of planning a charter in Costa Rica, and unsure about the seasons? Check our weather page here to see when the best time of year is best to book your memorable yachting charter.
Costa Rica is a wildlife-rich and culturally diverse gem in the heart of Central America, where sun-drenched beaches, dormant volcanoes, and incredible biodiversity awaits.
Home to some of the most awe-inspiring yachting anchorages in the world, you will typically awaken to the jungle call before taking a morning dip in the warm waters of these rainforest-fringed coves. For those seeking to venture inland, how about embarking on a canopy zipline tour above verdant rainforest abuzz with toucans and scarlet macaws to name a few, or hiking one of the 28 national parks to unveil cloud forests, fuming volcanoes, hot springs, and turtle populations.
Perhaps you would prefer to keep the adventure on the water? We suggest you embark on a guided mangrove river tour via paddleboard, snorkel or scuba-dive off the yacht's stern deck to unearth a technicolored underwater world or explore the surrounding area by jet ski, or tender - for a more leisurely adventure.

Costa Rican culture is a fascinating blend of indigenous heritage and Spanish Colonial influence. Situated in the heart of Central America, the people who make up this vibrant country are known for their charm and peaceful soul. Bordered by Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south, Costa Rica is naturally a culture-rich pocket stretching from the Pacific Coast to the Caribbean Coast.
While charting in such a unique destination, our expert team encourage you to embrace the local 'Pura Vida' lifestyle by venturing inland and soaking up the atmosphere of a country on the cutting edge of so many trends: farm-to-table restaurants, sustainable tourism where development is balanced by green energy, and a surfer-chic community scene.
Whether you chose to trace the Pacific Coast and catch those famed Pacific rollers, canoe alongside expert guides up the Pacuare River and into the heart of the Eastern jungles, or simply anchor in a tropical jungle-fringed bay and soak up the scenery on the aft deck with a Guaro Sour cocktail in hand, chartering a crewed motor yacht is the ideal opportunity to enjoy an adventure-packed vacation, whilst immersing yourself in the charming culture of Costa Rica.
Costa Rica's Pacific coastline is a haven for those looking to explore unspoilt beauty. And although relatively undiscovered, it is seemlessly easy journey from both the USA and Europe.
We recommend flying into the modern and convenient Liberia International Airport, easily accessible from many US destinations. From Europe, it is easier to fly into San José International Airport. Both are located near the Pacific coast making it an easy journey to get to your yacht. Make the return home from San José International Airport, which is 25 minutes by helicopter, or 1 hour 30 minutes by car from Los Sueños where you will leave to your yacht and crew.
Infused with rich flavour and vibrant colour, the Costa Rican cuisine is a force to be reckoned with. Drawing on multiple cultures and influences from Central America, the Costa Rican cuisine is inspired. Tantalise those tastebuds and tuck into ceviche, fresh produce and unfamiliar flavours in what are exquisitely executed dishes onboard your crewed charter yacht. Onshore, be sure to try Gallo Pinto - the national favourite of Costa Rica.
