‘Costa Rica Jungle Adventure’ is perfect for:

Families and groups who want to explore Costa Rica without breaking the bank.

This ten-night family package offers a great look at three areas of Costa Rica, from the mountains, passing by volcanoes, to the beach.

Experience the Central Valley from the Poas Volcano area, then the Arenal Volcano area – perfect for adventure and fun – and finish off on the beaches of Manuel Antonio. Three great destinations with three great hotels in each. And family fun in spades along the way.

Poas Volcano Lodge – A Taste of Mountain Life

Situated less than an hour and a half from the airport, on the slopes of Volcan Poas, is the Poas Volcano Lodge, a small, sustainable inn on the edges of the national park.

From here you have access to Poas National Park and a number of hiking trails through the local cloud forests. There is also the famous Waterfall Gardens nearby, which definitely need checking out.

This part of Costa Rica is often overlooked by tourists, but it’s cozy and lively. The cool climate and spectacular scenery make it well worth a couple of days.

Onwards to Arenal Volcano

Another good thing about Poas is that once up here, the Arenal Volcano is only a short hop over.

Take the private transfer and check into Lomas del Volcan, a cozy, family-friendly place at the foot of the volcano (that’s right, this trip features two volcanoes!). This place is perfect for nature lovers and adventurers alike.

While at Arenal Volcano it’s almost obligatory to do a zip line canopy tour, so this package includes one for the whole family. The Sky Tram and Sky Trek tour combines a gondola style float through the treetops with the adrenalin of the zip line itself.

A National Park by the Beach

After six nights next to volcanoes the beach is the next logical option. Manuel Antonio on the Central Pacific coast is the final stop in this family vacation.

Getting there is half the fun. A van picks you up in Arenal and takes you to Manuel Antonio via the famous Tarcoles River, where there’s a chance to hang out with some really big crocodiles. Talk about creating memories!

After the crocodile encounter, arrive at the Manuel Antonio hotel Costa Verde. This is another family-friendly option and the studio rooms fare comfortable for everyone. Watch out for the monkeys and birds on the property here, and enjoy the sandy beach, which is only steps away from the hotel!

Discover the delights of the Manuel Antonio National Park – where the rainforest hits the ocean – in a guided tour. This is a great way to learn about the animals that live here and get some exploration done before heading back home.
