Temptress Voyages: Educational Adventure


Costa Rica & Belize

Temptress Voyages, the unique eco-adventure cruise line based in Costa Rica, provides a welcome alternative to the standard vacation, highlighting the natural history, culture and amazing beauty of the magnificent Central American countries.

The Temptress Family Adventure is designed to accommodate children of all ages. A trained, on-board Activities Coordinator instructs and supervises SPECIALIZED ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN. In addition to nature briefings geared toward kids, the children's program includes beach activities and sand castle contests, journal writing, coloring and essay contests, as well as separate dining with a kids' menu. Each day features an educational children's hike to explore the destination's natural wonders.

The M/V Temptress Explorer in Costa Rica provides family adventures for 6- and 3-night sailings, departing from the port of Puntarenas on the Pacific coast. The first day of the six-night voyage begins with Curu Biological Reserve, a designated national wildlife refuge, and Temptress winds down the south coast, with each day offering a new adventure in another exotic locale, such as Corcovado National Park, perhaps Costa Rica's most important natural area, sheltering hundreds of species of the country's favorites, where guests are sure to spot the park's jeering band of Cappuchin monkeys; Cano Island, a sacred site for pre-Columbian artifacts which cause visitors to speculate on the island's mysterious heritage; and Golfito, the country's historical "banana town." For just a taste of Temptress, passengers may choose a 3-night itinerary visiting several of these spectacular areas.

1995 was a banner year for Temptress Voyages, marking the beginning of a parallel itinerary in a new destination, Belize. The M/V Temptress Voyager, formerly sailing in Costa Rica, now offers 3- and 6-night Voyages on Belize's Caribbean coast and will also features the Temptress Family Adventures.

The Voyager transports passengers to some of Belize's most fascinating areas, seldom traveled by land: wild islands, lush jungles and Mayan temples. Six-night voyages begin in Belize City and provide insight into the local culture in ares such as Sittee River, Hopkins, Placencia, Punta Gorda and Monkey River. Guests will experience the deserted cayes that pepper the coast including Laughingbird Caye, Rendezvous Caye and Snake Caye. Children and parents alike will marvel at the spectacular underwater life while snorkeling and diving off these cayes.

Both the Temptress Explorer, which accommodates 100 passengers, and the 63-passenger Temptress Voyager travel primarily at night and offer all the comforts of home with exceptional accommodations and superb cuisine. All cabins are equipped with large windows which open to the cool sea breezes, individual air-conditioning controls and private bathrooms. Laundry and turndown service ensure ultimate pampering. In addition to the myriad of activities including sea kayaking and snorkeling. Temptress has purchased SPECIAL WATERSPORTS EQUIPMENT FOR CHILDREN and provides instruction and supervision for all activities.

Everything is included in a Temptress voyage: all meals, guided nature tours, port charges, taxes, National Park entrance fees, soft drinks, well-brand liquors and watersports.

Discover the natural wonders of Costa Rica and Belize with the whole family on an alluring Temptress vacation.
