Puerto Caldera to Puerto Caldera
Lush, full of life, kissed by the sun and blessed with a breathtaking shoreline, the “rich coast” is just what it claims to be. History, flora and fauna are highlighted by local Naturalists. Enjoy a catamaran and snorkeling adventure in Playa Flamingo, where you’ll discover pristine beaches, beautiful reefs, and colorful marine life. Take in breathtaking views in Playas del Coco before visiting Quepos for rainforest adventures and searching for red-backed squirrel monkeys in Manuel Antonio National Park

VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 1: Puerto Caldera
Located on the Gulf of Nicoya, the small town of Puerto Caldera is one of Costa Rica’s top attractions, perfect for travelers who like more off the beaten path destinations where the native Tico lifestyle can be experienced. It is the gateway to San Jose, Jaco and the big city of Puntarenas, plus Los Suenos and Tortuga Island. Carara National Park is nearby, the rainforest home to crocodiles, over 400 species of birds and is considered the most likely place to see scarlet macaws.

Day 2: Playa Flamingo
Playa Flamingo is considered one of Central America’s most beautiful beaches with it pristine blue water, exotic marine life, and some of the best deep sea fishing to be found. Located in Punta Salinas on the country’s Gold Coast, Playa Flamingo is the only full-service marina between Acapulco and Panama. Other water activities include year-round SCUBA diving, swimming, and snorkeling. The stunning and unspoiled white-sand beaches will remain in your memory for years to come. This port is accessed with a wet landing.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 3: Corinto
This busy commercial port is a gateway city to the Nicaragua San Cristobal Volcano Summit, the highest volcano in Nicaragua that offers challenging treks that are rewarded with panoramic views of the countryside and the Pacific Ocean. Or hike to the crater rim of Volcan Telica to look down into the sea of lava and listen to the ongoing roar. Find the UNESCO-designated Old City of Colonial Leon, filled with deteriorating churches and streetscapes and a blend of Baroque, Neoclassical and Gothic styles.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 4: San Juan del Sur
San Juan del Sur is a tranquil fishing village nestled at the head of a horseshoe-shaped bay on the Pacific coast of southern Nicaragua. The lovely bay is peppered with small, private yachts, and commercial fishing boats. Sign up for a shore excursion and see it all. Visit one of Nicaragua's national parks to observe the active Masaya Volcano, and shop for treasures at the Indian Market.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 5: Playas del Coco
Playas del Coco, with its unspoiled cocoa-colored beaches, is a jumping off point for rainforest canopy tours, nature walks, and other inspiring eco-adventures. It is one of the more popular beach towns in the country for both locals and tourists and is well-known for being a family friendly town. This port is accessed with a wet landing.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 6: Bahia Herradura
The coastal area of Bahia Herradura is known worldwide as the fishing capital of Costa Rica. It is a popular tourist destination with close proximity to Jaco Beach, with its excellent surfing conditions. This area offers many other outdoor recreational options along the black-sand beaches lined with palm trees. You will not have to worry about running out of daylight regardless of the time you visit because the sun rises and sets at the same time in Costa Rica all year long. This port is accessed with a wet landing.
VIEW THE JOURNEY
Day 7: Quepos
The former banana-exporting town of Quepos is your basecamp for a day of rainforest adventure. Take a walk along trails that weave up to waterfalls, or ride horseback to a beautiful jungle pool. A float trip through a mangrove swamp populated by monkeys, crocodiles, egrets, and herons is also available. Or you may choose a nature walk through Manuel Antonio National Park, with its lovely beaches, easy trails, and abundant animal life.
