8-Day Star Clipper Cruise with Costa Rica Add-On

Combine a wonderfully encompassing exploration of some of the finest natural wonders of Costa Rica with a 7-night cruise on the Pacific waters with Star Clippers, taking in the remote and underdeveloped coastal destinations of Costa Rica and the serene Nicaraguan seaside town of San Juan del Sur. 

After a night in the lush Central Valley, head to Arenal for an unrushed stay amongst beautifully pristine landscapes, complemented by a further two days in the enigmatic cloud forests of Monteverde

Your elegant four-mast Star Clipper ship will then transport you on an exhilarating 8-day cruise, exploring secluded beach destinations in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The traditional ship is reminiscent of the legendary sailing era but furnished with modern comforts and amenities. Enjoy a unique but relaxed experience, with optional hands-on experiences, regaling stories from the Captain, and plenty of opportunities to simply relax and take in the sea air.

  • 8 days onboard the Star Clipper Tall Ship
