MANZANILLO BEACH & SURF LESSON
You’ll be welcomed upon arrival at Liberia International Airport by your Pelorus host and yacht captain. Having settled into your vessel and met the crew, swim or glide on a paddleboard into the tangled mangroves of the Iguanita Wildlife Refuge and Manzanillo Beach. Look out for marine iguanas, howler monkeys, and skittish white-tailed deer.
Snorkel or dive Bahía Culebra looking for sunken pre-Columbian settlements in this area of outstanding water clarity. Retire to your yacht for a gourmet dinner.
Drop anchor off Playa Tamarindo. Made famous by the cult surf film ‘Endless Summer’, learn to surf amid its fantastic waves. Dive beneath the surf to swim with whitetip sharks and eagle rays.
VOLCANOES & 4X4 SAFARI
Transfer by helicopter to the 34,000 acres of the Volcano Rincón de la Vieja National Park. Explore the astonishing biodiversity that lives in the shadow of these two volcanoes, with kinkajous, pumas, tapirs, and jaguars at home in the lush jungle. Catch sight of rare emerald toucanets and blue-crowned motmots glinting in the canopy. Discover this region’s rivers with a class II or III white water tubing or rafting adventure before drying off and taking the helicopter back to your yacht.
The Pacific waters here are part of the humpback whale migration to Central America where the females calve in the warmer waters. Intercept them in your tender and watch them breaching before slipping into the water to join them. Return to lunch on Playa Conchal on the Costa Rican Gold Coast, the sand here a colorful blend of powdered seashells.
Discover the duality of Palo Verde National Park, its tropical dry forests and beautiful wetlands, by 4×4 before changing to mountain bikes or hiking. Explore its limestone hills and marshland on foot, keeping an eye out for the shy jaguarundi. Take to the waterways on a riverboat looking out for freshwater crocodiles, white-throated capuchin monkeys, and a dazzling array of tropical and migratory birds.
