When most think of what a summer family vacation should be, they might think theme park or maybe sitting on a beach somewhere. But for the price of those vacations, you could instead have a once in a lifetime adventure in Costa Rica!

Central and South America used to feel too far out of reach, and flights a few years ago would definitely break the bank, but now flights are getting cheaper by the day, and it’s not only a reality to take an amazing family vacation in Costa Rica but an affordable one too.

Nowhere else will you find so much wildlife, outdoor adventure, and fun. 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. Below you will find the best places to eat, sleep, and have the most amazing family fun!

Becoming financially responsible has been a huge topic in our home recently. With two older kids we want to make sure they are fiscally responsible and we know it’s our job as parents to make sure they are ready for the real world. We have set up budgets and jobs for all of our kids, but it can be difficult to distribute that money to them. Gone are the days of a piggy bank.

Lately, I am blown away by all the amazing opportunities kids have now days. So much information and technology right at their fingertips. My daughter is nine, and there isn’t anything she can’t easily learn. At her age, I would have had to head to the library and hope they had a book on what I wanted to learn. It was difficult, and I missed a lot of opportunities because of this. I am so grateful, though that it can be different for my daughter. She can do anything she wants and, with practice and focus, learn new abilities and skills.

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!
