Famous for its beaches, jungles and extravagant wildlife including howler monkeys, frogs, turtles and toucans, Costa Rica is a great place for a family adventure holiday. We start by heading east to see the stunning wildlife haven of Tortuguero on the Caribbean coast. Canoe and boat tours take us through the myriad of canals, and we may see the giant leatherback and endangered green turtles on the beaches here. Leaving the Caribbean we have a fun and thrilling morning white-water rafting before travelling to Arenal Volcano. Here, we have the option to sample the Ecothermales Hot Springs and see the recent lava. Sailing across Arenal lake we take a jeep up to the cloud forest reserve at Monteverde, where we include the 'Sky Walk', a canopy-level walk-way for us to explore. We can also visit the wonderful Selvatura Park, with its outrageous butterflies, reptiles and amphibians. Heading south to Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific coast, we have some time to relax on the beach before continuing down to Dominical to relax on the beach. A unique, easy horse/pony ride to the Nauyaca waterfalls and then a search, in the forest at dawn, for the elusive Resplendent Queztal rounds off this excellent family adventure and wildlife rich holiday.
Explore International. Some of our departures are run in conjunction with our friends at Hauser Exkursionen in Germany. This gives the holiday an international flavour and enables the children to make new friends across the channel.
Is this holiday for you?
Suitable for children from 8yrs old
Activities included in this holiday are easy short walks, horse riding, a tree top tour (Skywalk), swimming, zip-wire rides, boat rides at Tortuguero and white water rafting. The rafting will be on an exciting, but not outrageous, ‘whitewater' river. The grade varies from 2 (straightforward) to Grade 3 (exciting). There are lots of easy reaches in between the rapids and this does make the overall run quite manageable for novices or youngsters. The horse-riding is also easy and can be done by novices and children. The zip-wire is fully supported with guides and instruction. Throughout the holiday we stay in comfortable hotel or lodge accommodation. This holiday has a strong focus on wildlife and the eco-system of the rainforest.
