Julia Max, Marina Papagayos Costa Rica. We could not check into the country here unless we paid $580 for an agent and waited 48 hours. So we took a panga into Playas del Coco and checked in along with Crossroads who shared the taxi into the airport. Took 5 hours due to waiting at Liberia and with Port Captain and Immigration. Misunderstandings with the National Zarpe led us to believe we had to detail every stop along our way south. That is NOT the case. Dan, the Harbormaster at Papagayos Marina will e-mail the port captain in Playas del Coco with a national zarpe from here to Golfito and ALL PORTS IN BETWEEN. This will make your cruising much easier. You still have to check in with the port captains along the way, but no worries about going ashore wherever it looks enticing or you want to anchor for the night.
Marina Papagos has many slips available with special for Posse participants, fuel @4.75/gal, electricity, potable water on the dock, trash, laundry, swimming pool, restaurant, marine store and a concierge for car rental and excursions. We took 2 excursions from the nature center in the peninsula resort attached to the marina.
This is a 5 star+ resort and community. Dan, the Operations Manager, from Florida, will take you on a property tour to see the lovely environment with all the amenties available to you for a price.
We have rented a car and are presently on a personal tour of the national parks in the north country. No guide yet.
