Category: Special Offers

Begin your journey with a 2-night pre-cruise stay in The Central Valley in Costa Rica, before boarding the majestic Star Clipper for a 7-night sailing traversing the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica and Nicaragua. During the sailing, visit picturesque ports of call including Quepos, San Juan del Sur and Isla Tortugas, widely regarded as the most beautiful island in Costa Rica. Following their authentic sailing experience, guests will spend 3-nights in Ecuador's capital, Quito, where they will take advantage of a private, full-day city tour including a visit to The Middle of the World Monument.

After your Ecuadorian escape, and for the final part of this bucket list experience, you will spend 4-nights in the Galápagos Islands. Sometimes called the 'Enchanted Islands', the remote Galápagos Islands are a unique example of natural beauty, with its wide range of wildlife and array of biological diversity. The Galápagos Islands, where Charles Darwin first set foot in 1835, acted as the inspiration to create his ground-breaking theories of evolution. Follow in Darwin's footsteps and witness the varied animals and sights that influenced him.
