Central America hides some of the most fascinating and off-the-beaten-track destinations. We’ve highlighted just some of the best Central America yacht charters you can discover on your next luxury vacation.
With an interesting mix of Mayan archeological sites and incredible diving, Belize is perfect for curious yachters. Unbeknownst to many, Belize is home to the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, with 190 miles of the 560-mile long reef system just off its shores. This fact alone makes Belize one of the best Central America yacht charters to consider.
Great Blue Hole
Experienced divers can explore the Great Blue Hole, an ancient 407 ft deep sinkhole, visible from space. Your whole group can also snorkel and swim amongst the whale sharks and exotic fish near Gladden Spit. While just inland from Belize City, you can’t miss the astonishing Mayan temples, tombs, and murals with visits to Caracol or Altun Ha.
Interested in seeing manatees and crocodiles? You can also head south to Placencia to witness incredible marine life from your yacht, or up close while snorkeling. While there, try your hand at fishing, or visit gorgeous secluded spots like the Silk Caye National Park.
Costa Rica’s strategic position makes it one of the best Central America yacht charter destinations. With a plethora of activities on the coast as well as inland, you won’t run out of things to do. From outstanding water sports including surfing, kayaking, and snorkeling, to numerous national parks, the beautiful country of Costa Rica has something for everyone. Don’t forget about the delicious local cuisine and variety of culinary influences that coexist.
On your Central American yacht charter, you can visit gorgeous anchorages including Isla Tortuga. Located just off the Nicoya Peninsula you’ll find excellent snorkeling, and places to have a relaxing swim. You’ll have a chance to see dolphins, manta rays, and even sharks. There are also shipwrecks waiting to be explored below the surface. Onshore, beautiful sandy beaches welcome sun worshipers, while nearby parks offer excellent hikes.

As you may know, Costa Rica is famous for its world-class surfing. Islas Huevos is one of the top spots to witness this and even try to catch your own wave. Head to Witches Rock where you can also scuba dive and admire the breathtaking scenery from your jet ski. For a slower-paced adventure, take a kayak to navigate the area’s many waterways.
Wildlife lovers will be amazed by the biodiversity of southern Costa Rica’s Drake Bay. A remote area home to small villages and primarily accessed only by water, Drake Bay has some of the rarest animals who thrive in the incredible parks. Venture to Corcovado National Park to see native monkeys, and if you’re lucky, the rare Baird’s tapir. Nearby, you can head to Cano Island to snorkel the reefs or kayak around this interesting archeological site. Formerly home to indigenous tribes, it was once used as a trading post and burial ground.
