There are many Costa Rica holidays to choose from, but nothing quite as unique as a cruise that takes you to different ports along the way, allowing you to explore all that Central American country has to offer. Renowned for it's volcanoes, rainforests and picturesque beaches, Costa Rica provides an exceptionally diverse experience.
Whether you're exploring La Fortuna Waterfalls and Hot Springs (which lie at the base of Arenal Volcano) or the Montezuma Waterfalls on the coast, you're bound to see rich and diverse plant and animal life while visiting the country. It is no wonder that Costa Rica contains 5% of the entire world's biodiversity. With all-round tropical weather, it also makes for an ideal cruise destination (the best time to visit Costa Rica is from December to April, due to the dry season, which tends to coincide with most cruise itineraries).
Boasting both the Pacific Ocean and the Carribean Sea coastlines, there are plenty of cruises to choose from which go via Costa Rican ports on either side.
The Port of Limón is the largest and most popular port for Caribbean cruises. The surrounding province is sprawled with banana plantations and rainforest, not to mention the charm of colourful bungalows and reggae music.
Across the country, Quepos and Puntarenas, are typical stopover ports for Central America and Panama Canal cruises. Quepos, a town on the central pacific coast, is notable for the Manuel Antonio National Park, home to sloths, monkeys, iguanas, snakes, birds, the list goes on!
