Location: San José

Costa Rica Family Experience
Nothing brings learning to life like real-world experience. This week-long trip’s engaging lesson plan gives kids an education in biology and ecology that can't be found in a textbook. Here, spend the days (and nights!) studying the flora and fauna that inhabit the cloud forest and Manuel Antonio National Park. We'll get in touch with the land by rappelling, rafting, swimming, horseback-riding, and even surfing all over it. Have we gotten your attention?!

Kick back on Costa Rica's pristine beaches, visit a local family to learn to make tortillas, spot nature in a dense cloud forest, enjoy the natural beauty of Manuel Antonio National Park, kayak and paddle-board in La Fortuna.

Arrive at anytime to settle in with your family!

Set off from the capital and enjoy the countryside of the Central Valley. Our three-hour van trip brings us to La Fortuna, near the base of the spectacular Arenal Volcano. We'll stop to meet Doña Mara and learn the art of making (and eating!) tortillas for a typical Costa Rican lunch. Upon arrival at La Fortuna, a great base for active adventures, you can relax in the hot springs heated by the volcano's lava. During our stay in La Fortuna, there's a wide selection of activities for your family. From river rafting, to rappelling down waterfalls, to floating along the canals of the Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge in search of caiman, you definitely won't be bored!
