Battle of the beards?

bellamy.jpgCaptain Greybeard is obviously proud of his facial hair, but he can’t compete with eco-warrior David Bellamy (left), who will be escorting a group of UK passengers on a week-long cruise to Costa Rica and Nicaragua in December 2011.
The cruise, on the 170-passenger tall ship Star Flyer, will visit some of the world’s most pristine rainforest and beautiful beaches.
The week-long voyage from Puerto Caldera along the Pacific costs of Nicaragua and Costa Rica calls at the surf resort of San Juan del Sur; the half-moon bay of Playas del Coco, with spectacular wildlife; National Park Santa Rosa, famed for its cloud forest and wildlife; Samara, for kayaking and bird-watching; Puerto Carrillo; the National Reserve of Curu, with a good chance of spotting whales and dolphins; and the remote Isla Tortugas, before returning to Puerto Caldera.
Before Bellamy boards Star Flyer with the guests on December 11, the group will stay for two nights at the five-star Royal Corin Hotel, with views of the Arenal Volcano, one of the ten most active in the world. There are excursions to a local farm, as well as the Tabacon Springs near Arenal, which have healing properties, and dinner at the hotel, overlooking the erupting volcano.
The 11-night tour costs from £2,239 per person and departs December 8, 2011. The price includes return flights from London to Costa Rica; three nights’ hotel accommodation; seven nights’ full board accommodation on Star Flyer; two exclusive lectures by David Bellamy; one shore excursion hosted by David Bellamy; guided tours on the pre-cruise section; and water sports from the ship.
