ELEONORE’S FAMILY TRIP TO
COSTA RICA.

8 NIGHTS/3 STOPS 

 

Wildlife watching, beach like and hiking.
Costa Rica is a great destination with kids. Costa Rica is all about Adventures, hiking, wildlife watching and beach life. People are very welcoming and it is very safe to travel with young children. We were able to mix long hikes with farniente. Costa rica is mostly known for its beaches volcanoes and biodiversity. Make sure you bring your binoculars, as you will try to spot spider monkeys and quetzal during your whole trip.

  • We stayed at Hotel Tabulia Tree. The hotel is very clean, comfortable, great swimming pool and mostly very helpful staff. We even managed to see squirrel monkeys in the hotel grounds. However, I will not suggest eating dinner there. 
  • We stayed 4 days in Manuel Antonio. It allowed us to mix hiking and swimming.
