This amazing once-in-a-lifetime trip will send you on a canopy tour through the cloud forest, stimulate your taste buds on a coffee plantation tour, hike through a tropical rainforest with the monkeys and snorkel off the beautiful Pacific coast.

My Costa Rica has put together one the best Costa Rica vacation itineraries for a family trip and we are excited to make your next family trip one to remember forever. Make your visit to Costa Rica one you will never forget with this incredible family vacation! 


Day 1:

San JoséMy Costa Rica will be waiting for you at the airport the moment you step off your flight with a custom welcome package and a friendly smile. You won’t have to worry about a thing as we transfer you to your first destination. You’ll spend your first night San Jose. Make sure to get a great night sleep because your amazing family adventure starts tomorrow!


Day 2:

Lake Arenal SunsetYour first incredible Costa Rica destination is the Arenal Volcano! The Arenal Volcano is Costa Rica’s most famous active volcano and family destination spot. It is surrounded by a gorgeous national park, a  massive man-made lake, Lake Arenal, and the city of La Fortuna. My Costa Rica will pick you up bright and early in San Jose and transfer you to the volcano. Make sure to have your camera ready because the drive is breathtaking. Not only will get to sleep right beneath a volcano, but you’ll get to explore the magical flora and fauna of Costa Rica and see one of the most beautiful destinations in the world.


Day 3:

Arenal zip liningAfter a good night’s sleep at your hotel, get ready for an adrenaline-pumping day in the Costa Rica rainforest canopy on Sky Trek and Sky Tram Tours. The Sky Trek is a unique experience that sends you zip lining  at top speeds through the canopy. Get ready for a unique perspective and incredible views as you fly through a tropical rainforest! If you prefer something a little bit slower paced, try the Sky Tram. The Sky Tram is a relaxing gondola ride that still allows you to see the rainforest from the sky, but a little bit slower. It’s perfect for smaller children or grandma and grandpa.


Day 4:

MonteverdeDay four is a culture and travel day. A My Costa Rica shuttle will pick you up and take you to the famous El Trapiche Coffee Tour. You’ll learn about Costa Rica culture and coffee production as you tour the plantation and. even pick your own coffee! At the end of the tour you’ll get the chance to taste the freshest coffee that Costa Rica has to offer. Don’t forget to take some home! After the tour My Costa Rica will take you to your next   destination in Monteverde where you will check into your next hotel for the night.


Day 5:

Senda Monteverde SkywalkThe Monteverde area is made up of beautiful cloud forests that highlight Costa Rica’s amazing biodiversity. On day 5 My Costa Rica gets you away from the crowds and into the unforgettable  Santa Elena Forest Reserve. You can hike through the cloud forest, look for wildlife and admire the unique and misty canopy. Don’t forget to ask about an ecological night walk while you’re there!


Day 6:

Manuel Antonio Beaches Aerial ViewDay six is another travel day to your last (but not least) Costa Rica destination. You’ll head to one of the most popular vacation destinations in Costa Rica: Manuel Antonio.

Everyone in your family is sure to find something they love in Manuel Antonio.

Keep an eye out for sloths, iguanas, snakes, tropical birds and unique tropical plants! Once you’ve toured the park, take a dip in the Pacific ocean. Watch out for monkey thieves on the beach, they like to take your snacks!
