TRIP ITINERARY

TODDLER FRIENDLY VACATION IN COSTA RICA 

DAY 1 | WELCOME TO TROPICAL COSTA RICA

Traveling with toddlers is pure magic! Costa Rica is the perfect destination to experience its beauty and accessibility for young families. Witnessing your bambino taste its first tropical fruits, seeing its first tropical butterfly, hearing its first tropical bird songs, and touching the Pacific waters for the first time is simply priceless. Come join us on this Toddler Friendly Vacation in Costa Rica!

Once you touched grounds in the Central Valley of Costa Rica, a MrTico representative will greet you and take you to a small family owned hotel with colorful gardens and swimming pool. Here you can relax, adjust to the tropical climate (which is perfect year round due to the Central Valley’s elevation), and have your toddler(s) taking a nap in the afternoon.

DAY 2 | ARENAL VOLCANO AT A TODDLER FRIENDLY LODGE & HOT SPRINGS

Traveling with toddlers shouldn’t be stressful. Take your time waking up, have a morning walk in the gardens with your youngster(s), experience the bird sounds, and spot the iguanas, butterflies, and bright flowers together. Enjoy a cup of tea, coffee, and fresh orange juice, and the typical Costa Rican breakfast with tropical fruits while sitting outside.

Later this morning our driver will pick you up for an interesting drive in a comfortable vehicle with a/c to La Fortuna, better known for its world famous Arenal Volcano.

Upon arrival in time for lunch and possibly your toddler’s nap you will be checking in at one of the area’s best hotels with excellent volcano views.

Late afternoon we will pick you up again for a visit to the area’s famous hot springs (just 5 minutes from your hotel). Enjoy the numerous thermal baths in a tropical setting with your child, have a refreshing cocktail drink, and later on we’ll invite you for dinner on location. You’ll be taken back to your Costa Rican residence at around 10 pm for your well-deserved night sleep at the foot of the Arenal Volcano.

DAY 3 |  NATURE FLOAT DOWN A GENTLE SAFARI RIVER

Start your day with a fantastic nature float trip on the Peñas Blancas River. Enjoy the abundant wildlife surrounding this rainforest lined river, where you can easily spot monkeys, birds, iguanas, sloths and other local residents.

You can take advantage of the stealthy rafts gently moving down this slow paced river to constantly be on the lookout for interesting wildlife your guide will help you spot!

After this adventure you will be transported back to your hotel in time for lunch and a nap. The afternoon is free for you to enjoy the hotel’s premises, gardens, pool, and Volcano views. Or perhaps you like to visit the cozy town of La Fortuna with its central park, many eateries, and souvenir shops

DAY 4 | THE NICE & FRESH MONTEVERDE CLOUD FOREST RESERVE

On this day you will travel, first by land, then crossing the majestic Arenal Lake by boat, and continue by van to reach the Cloud Forests of Monteverde.

Cloud forests are a particular type of tropical rainforest that occurs at specific tropical mountain areas and constitute unique ecosystems. Take advantage of your early arrival to visit Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve on your own to explore the beautiful flora and its birds.

DAY 5 | MONTEVERDE’S AERIAL TRAM & HANGING BRIDGES

After breakfast, continue this wonderful day with an adventure on the Sky Tram and Sky Walk. The Sky Tram provides a one of kind experience of aerial travel through and above the cloud forests of Monteverde as well as the breathtaking views of the golf of Nicoya. Together with your small fry you will experience cloud forest from a different perspective.

Upon arriving to the location, board a slow paced gondola and ride smoothly up to a wide observation deck at the highest point in the private reserve. Afterwards, enjoy a leisurely nature hike on the Sky Walk, a system of elevated walkways and bridges through and above the cloud forest canopy.

We have deliberately kept the afternoon free of activities for you to fill it in as you wish. We recommend you venture to Monteverde town, the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve, visit the butterfly garden, orchid garden, or the frog pond. Or simply relax at your lodge located in the midst of the cloud forest

Enjoy a feast of fresh fruits, grilled fish, brochettes, pasta salad, drinks and the finest hospitality. Go snorkeling at one of the offshore islands!

Dolphins will play in the wake as you sail silently through the blue pacific waters. The rushing of wind and waves are frequently interrupted by the splash of dolphins and whales coming near for a closer look. Take your children for a leisurely swim at one of the white sand beaches where we’ll stop for a break. Many different kinds of reef fishes are seen while enjoying the cool waters. Several species of sea turtles frequent the waters of the Marine Preserve. In the early afternoon you will be treated to a delicious meal.
