Unique Family Nature Getaway
Rainforest Glamping at a True Wilderness Resort & Some Beachfront Relaxation
Number of nights: 7
If nature and wildlife are what you think of when you think of a Costa Rica family vacation, then this package is for you! You are sure to see incredible flora and fauna while enjoying some of the most unique accommodations in the entire country.
The journey begins with a true safari experience at Rafiki Lodge, an exotic property near the Savegre River where you will see nature up close—including world-class birding—and go on exciting tours. The style is glamping, or glamorous camping, and the accommodations here are luxury tents imported directly from South Africa. But these are not tents like you know—you get to experience all the elements of the jungle, without missing out on all the modern conveniences you would expect at a luxury hotel. This is a real experiential travel location where you can enjoy being off the beaten path.
After tantalizing your senses in the rainforest, you will travel north to Manuel Antonio where you will visit the most famous national park in the country. Stay in the exclusive Buena Vista Villas and enjoy the pool, comfortable rooms, and great restaurants, or take a trip to the white sand beaches. Your family will always remember this vacation!
