Costa Rica is a natural paradise unsurpassed in wildlife and adventure. We’ve been delighting in its diversity and surprises for some 20 years and have designed this exhilarating—and completely customizable—family adventure to reveal its beloved sights and best far-flung places. To make the experience fun and supremely comfortable for your traveling clan, we tie it all together with scenic flights, overnights at exquisite family-friendly eco-lodges, and ample relaxation time. Opportunities abound for active excursions, such as horseback riding, kayaking, getting eye-to-eye with monkeys and toucans from hanging bridges, and flying by zip-line through the rain-forest canopy.

Trip Overview

The trip had the perfect combination of restful luxury, kid fun, and educational adventure! Every transitional link in the trip—be it lodging, waterfall rappelling, vehicular transportation, internal airfare—went without a hitch. We never waited or scratched our heads or had to call someone... Every reservation was perfect... We felt incredibly well cared for.
