Welcome to Costa Rica, the most visited nation in Central America, and for good reason. Costa Rica literally means rich coast and the reason for that name becomes apparent immediately upon seeing Costa Rica for the first time. A land with a diverse and lush topography that is steeped in history and culture makes Costa Rica a favorite destination for many.
Cruises are a favored way to visit Costa Rica. The ports of call are the Port of Limon, located on the Caribbean side, and the Port of Caldera (also called Puntarenas by various cruise lines visiting Costa Rica) on the Pacific coast. The cruise lines that service Costa Rica are: Celebrity, Costa, Cunard, Holland America, NCL, Oceania, Paul Gauguin, Princess, Regent Seven Seas, Royal Caribbean, Silverseas, and Voyages of Discovery.
Puerto Limon, on the Caribbean, is a popular travel spot for those who love eco-adventure Shore Excursions such as our Puerto Limon Canopy Zip Line and Banana Plantation Excursion. Many Costa Rica Excursions will include activities in protected areas such as sightseeing, visiting waterfalls while on our Puerto Limon Veragua Rainforest Exploration and Aerial Tram Excursion, and numerous water sports both tame and active.
Puntarenas, located on the Pacific Coast, is well known for its tropical jungles which are visited on our Puntarenas Rainforest Treetop Skywalk and Sightseeing Excursion, incredible beaches and waves that call out to surfers from around the world. Excursions here will also offer sightseeing and a multitude of water sports and beach breaks: Puntarenas Super Combo Highlights Excursion and our Puntarenas Rainforest Horseback Riding and Aerial Tram Excursion.
Whichever port you come into, you are sure to enjoy your visit to this lovely country. Don't be surprised when you realize you are not only having the time of your life, but you are already busily planning your return trip. This is truly a paradise on earth!
