Volcanoes • ziplining • hot springs • cloud forest
Enjoy this holiday trip in Costa Rica, based in small eco-lodges in premier environments, with the most fun-loving naturalist guides anywhere. Parents, grandparents, teens and younger kids love our Costa Rica adventures, but reservations over the December break -- especially at the intimate specially-sited lodges we prefer -- are hard to come by.
Costa Rica is delightfully friendly and safe, and easily reached from anywhere in the U.S. The country's commitment to preservation of its natural environments is a model for nations around the world. On this trip, you'll gain up-close experience with tropical rain forest and cloud forest, and explore three of the original gems in Costa Rica's environmental crown -- the waterways of Tortuguero National Park on the Caribbean coast, dynamic Arenal Volcano, and the world-famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve. All along the way, there will be serendiptious fun tailored to kids of all ages. Your kids will thank you forever!
“I thought the types, duration, and activity levels were very well geared for families with children. We loved all the animals we saw at Tortuguero on the boats, and we also saw a lot of monkeys pretty close right at our lodge. Our guide connected well with all our family members. He tenderly gave extra assistance to the grandchildren when he sensed an extra need. He was a delightful conversationalist during rides and meals, and he showed a keen sense of when to be a member of the "family" and when to disappear for a bit. He was extremely knowledgeable on his country, birds, animals, and geographical formations. He spoke in terms that we could readily grasp.” ~Mary Helen Black
