“The romance capital of the world”. Most dream of going to Paris with their significant other, but have you thought about taking the kids? I always recommend Paris with kids and usually people are quite surprised to hear that it is a very family friendly destination.

If you are around my age you probably will remember on road trips just staring out the window for entertainment. Sure I had a coloring book and occasionally my mom would even play a game of tick-tac-toe with me, but in car entertainment was definitely limited compared to today’s standards. I honestly don’t know how my parents did it. I am always making sure my kids have plenty of entertainment just so I don’t want to pull my hair out by the end of the trip. How many times can you hear “Are we there yet?”

With so many tasks during the day, it can be hard as a parent to keep up with everything. Before you know it you forgot to remind the kids to brush their teeth or maybe it slipped your mind to sign their school field trip form. Parenting is hard and that’s why I use every tool at my disposal to help out. Most days I need at least two more pairs of hands so that’s where these tools come in handy. One of these tools is the amazing Gululu smart water bottle. I have a hard enough time managing my own water intake throughout the day; I don’t have the time to manage the little munchkins too.

We recently came across one of these tools and it’s quite possibly the best product out there right now for travel with kids!

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!

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!
