10 ADVENTURE-FILLED NIGHTS
One of VACAYA’s missions is to take you to exciting new destinations – fabulous places on our planet that have never been or are rarely visited by other LGBT+ travel companies. Using that mission as our guide, The Vacayans have created this luxury cruise around Central and South America just for you.
Our journey starts in uber gay-friendly Costa Rica, where its rainforests and friendly citizens await. We sail from Puerto Caldera and have 3 more incredible stops in Costa Rica, 5 in Panama, and an overnight in thrilling Cartagena, Colombia! We also transit one of the world’s modern wonders – the Panama Canal – as we sail from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. PONANT’s 5-star Le Bellot will be our home-away-from-home for 10 adventure-filled nights.
The upside of cruising on an Expedition Cruise on the super yachts of PONANT is that you can visit remote ports and secret harbors accessible only to these special vessels. This allows you to get right to the heart of your chosen destination. Additionally, most remote ports of call fall into the category of Expedition Cruise and are accessed via Zodiac (inflatable 12-person lightweight motorized boat) so you’ll be some of the first people to explore these special spots. A whole new world opens up with each and every step. And what’s better is that an expedition cruise saves you money because you’re buying fewer optional excursions. The Zodiac landings and the expedition leaders are included in your cruise fare!And with super yachts, you don’t have to worry about missing out on larger ports; we can go to those, too! So you’ll enjoy plenty of variety during your journey with VACAYA. We call this the SUPER YACHT ADVANTAGE.

The port of Puerto Caldera lies on the Pacific coast in the Puntarenas region at the mouth of the Gulf of Nicoya. Areas of wilderness stretch along the coast. Further inland, you’ll find countless natural wonders in the generous rainforests of Costa Rica’s national parks. In addition, Poas and Arena volcanoes majestically tower over this region. In this abundant natural setting, Costa Rica protects one of the planet’s richest biodiversities: monkeys, sloths, tropical birds, iguanas, crocodiles, waterfalls, canyons, and more than ten thousand species of tropical plants.
While we work tirelessly to craft the perfect itinerary for each trip, it’s always subject to change based on weather, sea, and myriad other conditions.
