In my last post on Costa Rica, I introduced you to San Jose and shared some of our family’s favorite things to do, places to eat, and place to stay during your time there. Now it’s time to explore outside of the cities and dive into the adventure that awaits you and your family in the mountains, forests, and beaches of Costa Rica.

As you leave San Jose, wildlife is everywhere! You don’t have to travel far to be immersed in nature and animals. For our kids, this was an amazing site; they had never seen monkeys or colorful birds outside of a zoo, and they had never experienced so much green!

Nature is precious here, and it’s preserved and respected. Seeing so many animals in their natural surroundings was truly beautiful and awe inspiring.

As I explained in my last article, our family spent almost two months in Costa Rica, so I’m going to show you how to get the most out of this magical destination with this three-part guide. Below you will find part two of our guide with the best places to eat, sleep, and how to get the most out of your family trip to Costa Rica!

Costa Rica really is a different world, one that you can’t even really imagine or wrap your head around until you experience it. Our family spent almost two months in Costa Rica, so I’m going to show you how to get the most out of this magical destination with a three-part guide.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
