Travel to Costa Rica with Kids:
Family Intercultural & Biodiversity Excursion
This year has been a wild-ride thus far in regards to travel and time away with family.  We're hopeful that the coming months will provide opportunities for travel and are excited to offer a unique travel experience for families with kids 6+ years old.  Providing an awesome combination of culture, activity, diversity in ecosystems, industry, and flora & fauna, this trip is a great opportunity to explore less-traveled and incredibly beautiful areas in the North Central region of Costa Rica. Designed to be a full 5 day itinerary of hiking, swimming, chocolate-tasting, animal viewing, and more, it provides you the opportunity to extend the trip on either end to add in some of your own travel ideas (of course, we're happy to provide suggestions or aid in planning!)
