Costa Rica is a wonderful destination for families, with lots of outdoor activities, great wildlife and some of the friendliest people in Latin America. *Please note this price is per person based on four people*

Your 11-day adventure starts in Tortuguero, a dense and intricate network of rivers, lagoons, and canals crisscrossing different rainforest, swamp and beach. This is a magical place for wildlife lovers, with frogs, monkeys and birds darting through the canopy, while turtles and caimans glide through the water. You can explore this pristine environment by foot and by boat, getting up close to the park’s fascinating inhabitants.

Your next stop is Arenal, home to the mighty Arenal volcano that soars through the clouds. Take a ride on the Sky Tram and enjoy aerial views of the surrounding forest, then zip line through the canopy and kayak around Lake Arenal – this really is the perfect place for active families. You’ll also take a walk along Arenal’s famous hanging bridges at night to spot nocturnal animals such as frogs and snakes.

It’s then time for some downtime on the coast. The Guanacaste Coast is the perfect place to relax and enjoy some quality time together. Your final stop will be Costa Rica’s Coffee Valley where you’ll enjoy a thrilling hike around the Poas Volcano with its incredible steaming crater.

Hanging bridges night walk

Costa Rica currently makes up 5% of the biodiversity of the world and its forests teem with wildlife. One of the best times to experience the staggering range of fauna is at night, with many species coming to life after the sun goes down. There are around 2,000 species of butterflies active during the day but 4,500 are nocturnal. A similar pattern occurs with the activity of some amphibians, reptiles, mammals, as well as some species of exotic flowers that only bloom at night.

Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park offers guests the opportunity to observe the forest in the darkness of the night during a walk that passes through the hanging bridges. It is also possible to observe animals such as frogs, snakes, lizards, mammals and nocturnal birds such as the owl and the barn owl.
