Peninsula Papagayo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica – Peninsula Papagayo has opened Phase I of Marina Papagayo—Costa Rica’s first luxury port. Phase I includes 180 slips capable of accommodating private watercraft ranging from sport fishing boats to mega-yachts. Upon completion, Marina Papagayo will rival the globe’s most desirable ports of call.
Situated below the hurricane belt and naturally sheltered from easterly trades along Central America’s fashionable cruising coastline, Marina Papagayo will serve as both a pleasure stop and strategic harbor. This natural amphitheater location provides a year-round safe haven on calm, protected waters – a place to anchor one’s spirit for a few exhilarating days or a lifetime.
“As a pivotal mooring location for yachts and vessels cruising from the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and all points of the Pacific, Marina Papagayo will be a key international port and Costa Rica’s most elegant and impressive marina facility,” said Alan Kelso, CEO, Ecodesarrollo Papagayo, master developer of Peninsula Papagayo and Marina Papagayo. “Nearly 3,000 years ago, this country’s inhabitants saw this area as an ideal seafaring environment, and it still is. Marina Papagayo and our Marina Village will be Costa Rica’s first and most exclusive luxury destination for yachting enthusiasts and homebuyers, and the showpiece of Peninsula Papagayo’s resort community.”

– Ultra-wide docks with generous slips and fairways
– Dockside Marina Concierge
– On-site immigrations and customs operations
– Boat storage, high speed diesel fueling and service areas
