Belize yacht charters are the stuff of treasure island fantasies, with over 400 cays and islets scattered off the coast of the Central American country, which itself is wedged between Mexico and Guatemala. It’s a place where you can easily lose yourself for weeks on end, dropping anchor in a secret bay or mooring up to trek amid lush rainforest to find spine-tingling ancient ruins.

Costa Rica

Known for its sustainable tourism, rich biodiversity, steaming volcanoes, lush jungle and world-class surfing, Costa Rica, that Central American country cocooned between Panama and Nicaragua, is a yacht charter destination with a lot of heart and soul. A Costa Rica yacht charter is perfect for adventure-seekers who want to explore more – you can dive into underwater caves to discover new worlds, or hike amid protected wilderness where you may have a close encounter with a foraging giant anteater or a loafing sloth.

Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez is the richest body of water in the world supporting over 2,900 species of fish and mammals. Come to a place where blue whales, sharks, barracuda, wahoo and marlin swim in what is known as nature’s aquarium. Cruise around the coast to the Baja Peninsula and get the best of both worlds with the hedonism of Cabo San Lucas and the elegant tranquility of your yacht. This is an incredibly spectacular location with sportfishing tournaments, beach clubs, nightclubs, golf courses and Michelin star restaurants.

Chartering a yacht in Central and South America

The vast area encompassed by Central and South America includes Brazil, Patagonia, Belize and Costa Rica, as well as the mythical Galapagos islands, the vast Amazon rainforest and the Sea of Cortez. Chartering a superyacht in these waters is as varied as the destinations themselves: you could be snorkelling in national parks, surfing on world-class waves, trekking through lush jungle and up volcanoes, or fly-fishing miles away from the nearest sign of civilisation.

The best time to visit South and Central America for a superyacht charter depends on the specific region and destinations you wish to explore. The Caribbean coast enjoys a tropical climate and is best visited during the dry season from December to April when the weather is warm, and rainfall is minimal. Meanwhile Brazil's coast, including popular destinations like Rio de Janeiro and the Amazon rainforest, are best during the dry season from May to October. Patagonia is best visited during the summer months of December to February when temperatures are milder, while the Galapagos islands offer the best wildlife viewing and snorkelling opportunities from June to December. Whichever area you decide to visit, both Central and South America have a treasure trove of delights just waiting to be discovered by yacht charter.

The diverse coastlines of both South and Central America are teeming with opportunities for a unique and unforgettable yacht charter holiday with friends, family and loved ones. Perhaps it’s your first time taking your children to this part of the world, or perhaps it’s time to return to some favourite spots through a new angle.

First time visitors will particularly enjoy the pristine national parks of Costa Rica’s rugged Pacific Coast offer dramatic scenery, sandy beaches, some sweet surf spots, and wildlife at every turn. Nearly 30% of Costa Rica’s land has been set aside as national parks and preserves, many of which encompass coastal and marine ecosystems. For yachting holidays along the Pacific Coast, that means rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife, and gorgeous stretches of undeveloped coastline are just a tender ride away. Highlights in the country include Santa Rosa National Park, a surfers nirvana with Nancite Beach, Ollie’s Point and Witches Rock being among the most famous breaks, and Marino Ballena National Park, which is known for its migratory humpback whales.
