What a fantastic idea! This excursion is perfect for both groups of people, as well as anyone else who wants to get out on the water. In fact, it is regularly named as one of the top things to do in the area. A sailboat rental is a “can’t miss” way to spend the day!

If you’ve never chartered a sailboat rental before, you probably have a few questions. How much does it cost to charter a catamaran? What does it include? We’re here to answer them all!

What to Expect With a Sailboat Rental

Before worrying about the average cost to charter a yacht, you’ll need to decide upon a few details. These are how long you want to stay out and where you want the sailboat to take you. At Esmeralda Sailing, our sailing yacht provides a unique sailing experience in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama. 

The boat is docked in San Juan del Sur, Rivas, a town on Nicaragua’s southwest coast. San Juan del Sur is known for a string of nearby Pacific beaches such as Isla Anciana, Playa Blanca, Brasilito, Playa Trebol, Maderas, Marsella, and others, as well as being currently considered; the “Mecca of Surfing.”

You have a choice between mid day and full day packages. The right one for you may depend on which destination you want to visit, as some are further away than others. Included in each package are convenient items like lifejackets, fishing gear, and towels. Additionally, you can find fun water toys and equipment such as paddle boards, snorkeling gear, balls, table games, and more. 

There are also numerous additional services you can choose to add. You may decide you want ceviche and fresh fruit, which are the perfect treats to eat under the sun. Would you like a DJ on board playing all your favorite songs? We can do it all!

In fact, we offer the ability to create a custom package in order to ensure you get absolutely everything you’re looking for. If you would like to create a special event on board, do not hesitate to contact our charter company to provide a personalized package for you. We have hosted engagement, birthdays, weddings, business events, nights on board, honeymoons, trips to other countries, diving, surfing to different destinations, and more.
