Costa Rica Adventure Itinerary for Little Kids

 Costa Rica Family Adventure Company
Family Costa Rican Adventure
February 18th – 26th, 2011

Day 1 ------------------------ Arrive & drive to Arenal  (Nayara Hotel)
We will be at the airport to meet you and take you to the hotel which is around two hours from the airport. When it comes to places to stay this is one of the nicest hotels around. It has been open for two years and I absolutely love sending people here. It is small and has amazing views. When sending people to this place I just tell them to look at tripadvisor it has like 900 million reviews and they are all excellent so there is probably a pretty good chance you will like it.
(Meals: None)
Day 2 –----------------- Balsa River Rafting & Ecocenter Danaus (Nayara Hotel)
Lets take the kids rafting. The kids are young and its about that time we splashed some white water on them. This is a perfect river nearby for their level of rafting and I know they will love it. We will have some time in the afternoon to stop by a locally run private reserve which we can make very educational for the kids giving them a close look at some animals. We wont bore them but a lot of kids to get excited and it’s a great way to get involved a little with the local community and off the tourist path.
(Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)
Day 3-------------------- Travel to MonteVerde  (MonteVerde Hotel)

Today we have the option to do the canyoneering tour. Although this is quite the adventure if your kids are up for it even the little one can enjoy it. It is an adventure where you are on all fours making your way hiking through the jungle at the bottom of the canyon. I love it and you get soaked. There are some parts where the skill of rappel comes into play and the little one will be helped by a guide that gets him down the waterfall. After the adventure we will head back to the hotel for a quick shower and then make our way to the MonteVerde area where we will spend the next two nights in the cloudforest. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)
(Meals: Breakfast & Dinner)
Day 4------------------ Monteverde Reserve  (Monteverde Hotel)
Today we will visit one of the most majestic areas on the planet. This is the Monteverde cloudforest and your naturalist guide will make it an amazing hike and very interesting. This is one of the places that has made Costa Rica famous and they have done an amazing job protecting it. Just being in the area of Monteverde is an amazing experience and you truly are surrounded by nature and a feeling of tranquil from the moment you arrive. The area has many little things for the kids like frog and spider exihibits if the kids wanted to spend the afternoon after the Reserve visiting these places. (Meals: Breakfast)
Day 5 ---------------  Drive to Manuel Antonio (Arenas del Mar)
Today you will head south and make your way to Manuel Antonio which in my opinion is Costa Rica’s finest beach. I will say it was suggested by you Lisa which I have to give you credit for. The hotel I have you staying in is one of my favorites because it has the best view and you don’t feel like you are in the touristy area of Manuel Antonio. It also has lots of monkeys which is a huge plus for the kids.  (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Day 6- -------------- Tour National Park (Arenas del Mar)
Today you will visit the National Park of Manuel Antonio. This is a beautiful park and home to the rainforest meeting the beach. Your naturalist guide will be able to describe to you the difference between the reserve you saw in the Arenal area, the Monteverde Cloudforest, and the rainforest at Manuel Antonio keeping it interesting and most importantly fun for the kids with all the animals in and around the park.  (Meals: Breakfast)
Day 7---------------------------- Beach Day (Arenas del Mar)
Well this is the official R&R day. If the kids want to rent some surf boards or boogie boards the waves in the area are often pretty soft. This is your day to relax and enjoy the sun.
(Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)
Day 8-------------------- Drive to Central Valley  and Fly Home!!!
Make the drive to the airport, say your good-byes, and start planning the trip for the class IV rapids of the Pacuare River for when the kids are a little bigger and our rappeling down the waterfall and sleeping behind a cave adventure (Well your kids sound pretty adventurous for their age they might be ready if you just want to delay the flight a few days?).
(Meals: Breakfast)
