‘Watersplash in the Jungle’ is perfect for:

Families with teenagers who want a vacation full of water-based adventure in nature.

Costa Rica’s natural wonders are one of its best highlights, and this family vacation package takes you to two of its most famous areas: Arenal Volcano and Manuel Antonio.

The lush tropical rainforest and the Pacific coastline hide rivers, waterfalls, and wildlife that you can explore and discover together. Jump right into action and enjoy a vacation like no other!

Whitewater Rafting in Arenal

The first stop is the Arenal Volcano area. Stay at the Arenal Springs Resort & Spa, a family-friendly hotel with four on-site hot springs pools.

Relax and admire the views of the volcano, the gardens, and the forest that surrounds the property. Then get your fix of adventure and practice whitewater rafting in a guided tour at the Balsa River, which has level II-III rapids.

With gourmet dining, a yoga pavilion, and two extra pools, this hotel is a great place to sit back and relax whenever you are not out exploring

Chasing Manuel Antonio’s Waterfalls

The rest of the vacation takes place at the beach. Manuel Antonio is the place where both the jungle and the ocean meet, so enjoy the astonishing views at Shana Hotel. Perched on a hill, the hotel’s terrace provides a great view of the Pacific coastline.

Hit the beach down below to sunbathe or swim in the ocean. Then prepare to dive deeper into the jungle and go on a waterfall hunt trip for the day. Knowledgeable guides show you off-the-beaten-path water slides and pools that have formed naturally in the terrain.

By the time you head back home, everyone in the family has enjoyed Costa Rica’s thrills and nature. If this sounds like the perfect Costa Rica vacation for you and the teens in your life, simply contact us and we’ll gladly personalize this package to fit your needs.
