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. Our tour takes us to Poas Volcano, with its humming birds and picturesque crater lagoon, then on to 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 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, as well as 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. A horse-ride to the Nauyaca waterfalls and a search in the forest for the elusive Resplendent Queztal rounds off this excellent family adventure and wildlife rich holiday. The majority of activites and most meals are included in the holiday price, making it great value and easier for you to budget for the family.
Is this holiday for you?
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, plus touring and visits to key Costa Rican tourist attractions. 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. Several of the places we stay provide opportunities for swimming. This holiday is suitable for active families with children of age 8 and up.
