Part Two: Your Insiders Guide to Costa Rica

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!

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.
