Sail to a place often regarded as paradise on a luxury cruise to Costa Rica. With both Caribbean and Pacific coasts, lush rainforest, volcanoes, misty highlands, and laid-back cities and beach towns, this Central American country does indeed seem blessed with wonder, natural and otherwise. Ticos, as Costa Ricans are known, celebrate their good fortune by greeting one another with “pura vida” (pure life), the essence of this happy, laid back, and spectacularly beautiful country.
These Central America cruises give you a chance to experience nature at its most pristine. You’ll have the chance to see cloud forests and coffee plantations, visit a sloth sanctuary, and observe monkeys and crocodiles in the wild. Opt for the thrills of white water rafting or zip-lining, or simply while away your time on long, golden beaches.

Enjoy luxurious staterooms, cuisine, and service as you discover Costa Rica, Cozumel, Colombia and Fort Lauderdale. Climb, snorkel, swim, bike or chill in some of the world’s most beautiful places.
Costa Rica’s beaches are legendary. On the west coast, you’ll find calm bays for swimming backed by dense rainforest, as well as stretches of wave breaks that make for exhilarating surfing. Costa Rica’s east coast borders the calm, teal water of the Caribbean, making for a blissful beach day and opportunities for snorkeling and sea kayaking.
Costa Rica is blessed with both tropical rainforests along the coast and mist-shrouded cloud forests in the highlands. Both offer myriad adventures, from hiking to zip lining, aerial trams, and ATV excursions. Wildlife is abundant—look out for toucans in the trees or pairs of scarlet macaws soaring over the forest canopy. Butterflies here seem super-sized, in brilliant colors, while slow-moving sloths gaze down at you from the trees.
Costa Ricans are deeply committed to protecting the natural world, and you’ll find several activities that combine excitement with ecotourism. Visit a sloth sanctuary from Puerto Limón, or learn about the ecology of stingless bees at Api Agricultura. Visit Cahuita National Park with a naturalist, or find out about the conservation of macaws at the Natuwa Sanctuary at El Manantial.
Explore the rainforests and beaches of Costa Rica on a cruise lasting between 11 and 16 nights. You could sail round-trip from Tampa, calling at Puerto Limón on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast. Or join a longer voyage between Valparaiso, Chile and Los Angeles, calling at Puntarenas on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. Some Panama Canal itineraries also stop in Puntarenas.
Cruise to Costa Rica with Celebrity and enjoy the good life on board a stylish, contemporary ship.

Choose The Retreat for the ultimate in luxurious travel, with access to the exclusive Luminae at The Retreat restaurant and a serene private lounge.
Itineraries will bring you either to Puntarenas on the Pacific coast or Puerto Limón on the Caribbean side. Whichever port you visit, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the country’s natural wonders, from cloud forests to animal sanctuaries, jungle rivers, coral reefs, and sandy beaches. Discover for yourself the meaning of “pura vida” on a voyage to Costa Rica with Celebrity.
