Maybe it’s because it’s foggy and grey again for what seems like the umpteenth time in the past week. Maybe it’s also because I’ve had it up to here with the Presidential campaign ads airing in advance of today, a.k.a. Super Tuesday. Either way, the new IslaMoin marina and resort in Costa Rica sounds like it would provide a nice respite for a while.
Still in development, the 208-acre property is on the Caribbean coast in the province of Limon, which is Costa Rica’s principal Atlantic port. It’s a narrow island rimmed with beaches and bordered by a canal. IslaMoin is a few minutes from Limon’s international airport, which offers connecting flights from San Jose International Airport as well as the international airport in Liberia. In addition, the location is within an hour to two hours’ cruise of a handful of national parks, wildlife refuges, and a forest reserve.
IslaMoin will feature two different marinas, each accommodating megayachts to 250 feet LOA. The first, Marina Village, will have 200 slips with a maximum draft of 18 feet. Each slip will be walking distance to various offices and shops, including customs, a marine-supply store, a yacht brokerage, a gourmet food market, restaurants, and gift shops. The second marina, referred to as the Internal Marina, will also accommodate 200 yachts, but up to 120 feet LOA and a maximum draft of 12 feet. These slips will be walking distance from condos, a spa, a hotel, and a convention center. Private clubhouses are being built, too, containing everything from a business center to a movie theater, a pool, and a party room. Captains and crew get their own clubhouse as well, complete with a heated pool and whirlpool, a business center, a movie theater, gym, and billiards room.
Regardless of where you dock or if you purchase a residence, you’ll have access to 24-hour concierge and security services as well as Wi Fi, golf-cart rentals, and other amenities.
