Marina Papagayo (Costa Rica)

Marina Papagayo (Costa Rica)

Characteristics

Description

The northernmost point of entry to Costa Rica is situated on Guanacaste's Gold Coast. The International airport is less than an hour's drive from the marina. Situated below the hurricane belt and sheltered from the easterly trade winds of Papagayo, this marina should offer a safe haven (albeit a five star one!)

Clearance and Immigration facilities are available here.

The marina has 350 wet slips for yachts ranging in size from 35’ to 240’ in length. Reports are that the marina is very exposed to the trade winds which can make berthing tricky. Chafe gear and sturdy spring lines are recommended to minimise the effects of the surge.

The harbourmaster is reported to be very friendly and helpful, as are the staff.
