Costa Rica is easily accessible by any means: land, air and water. Being bordered by the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea means that boats and ships are able to reach the tropical beaches of the tiny, Central American country. Major cruise-lines such as Royal Caribbean and Princess stop at ports like Porto Caldera and Puntarenas to allow their travelers the chance to explore the land and get a sense of Costan Rican culture. Most of the time it is a short visit before they head to their main ports-of-call such as the Panama Canal or islands in the Caribbean. There are smaller cruise vessels, which hold about 100 people or less, that arrive from Panama and dock in Costa Rican ports, or depart Costa Rica and head down to Panama. The 7 to 10-day tours cost between $2,000 and $6,000, and take you to the National Parks and secluded beaches unreachable by car. Traveling to Costa Rica by boat will give you the opportunity to see what its name really means, the rich coast.
