Costa Rica Adventure Trips
The Spoil Mom Family Adventure was designed to keep the kids active enjoying some adventure but really allow mom to enjoy two of the finest hotels we know of in all of Central America.
Don't be fooled this is not all about the hotels. We fill the itinerary with private reserves for upclose wildlife meetings and our three favorite adventures of canyoneering, whitewater rafting the Savegre River, and ziplining.
This is a good itinerary for those looking to not move around a lot as we have you located in only two different hotels.Click Hereto Design Your Own

June 30th - Arrive and Drive to Arenal Volcano (Nayara Resort)
Today you will be met outside the airport by your private guide and driver. We will make the drive to the famous Arenal Volcano where you will be staying in the world famous Nayara Resort. I wish I could put all of our groups here but unfortunately because of availability it is always full. We happen to be lucky enough to get rooms blocked for you on these dates. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)
July 1st - Visit Danaus & La Fortuna Waterfall (Nayara Resort)
After breakfast we will make our way to the Danaus Reserve which is a very small, easy hike, and a chance to see little colorful rainforest species such as frogs, sloths, birds, and butterflies. It is a great little hike for the little ones and short enough to keep their attention. After the visit to the Danaus Reserve we can visit the La Fortuna waterfall which is a hike of around 400 stairs which if you feel is too much we can just enjoy it from the viewing area up top and then back to the Nayara Resort to enjoy the grounds and room. (Meals: Breakfast)
July 2nd - Visit Cano Negro or Canyoneering (Nayara Resort)
Today we have the option of canyoneering or visiting Cano Negro. The canyoneering is a great adventure for all ages as you make your way down a canyon and the little ones are hooked up to cables and let down while the adults rappel down the side of the waterfall. If you think this might be a little extreme for the little guys (just depends if your children might not like the height which is around 100ft) then we have another option of a boat float in the northern wetlands where you can see much wildlife such as monkeys and more sloths. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)
July 3rd - Zipline & Travel to Manuel Antonio (Arenas del Mar)
Today we will make our way to the Pacific coast again staying at a hotel which is often full but we were able to find availability. Before we arrive to the beautiful Arenas del Mar we will stop to do the zipline through the cloudforest. This is a great zipline that is kid-friendly. The adults will go alone while the kids will go tandom with a guide. Our final destination of the day will be the Manuel Antonio area which is home to Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)
July 4th - Visit National Park Manuel Antonio (Arenas del Mar)
Today your naturalist guide will take you to visit the National Park of Manuel Antonio where you will see plenty of monkeys as there are still more monkeys than people in the park. The park also gives you a chance of visiting the most amazing beaches in the area. The afternoon can be back to the room and a chance to relax or maybe the kids will want to rent some boogie or surf boards and test their skills on the small waves. (Meals: Breakfast)
July 5th - Raft Savegre (Arenas del Mar)
Get ready for one more adventure. We will be taking on some whitewater on the Savegre River. We run all of our own rafting trips and they are privately operated. Here you will enjoy a day on the river on small class I & II rapids while we get everyone wet but keep everyone in the boat. This is a great day on the river and a chance to be surrounded by virgin rainforest. The afternoon you can relax at the hotel. (Meals: Breakfast & Lunch)
July 6th ------- Fly Home!
Today we will transfer you back to the San Jose airport for your flight home!
Nayara - When we refer to spoil mom in the title of the itinerary, we are referring to how much she will enjoy the two hotels we have picked for this adventure. If you want to be WOW-ed by the hotels you stay at along with their views, then the Nayara will surely make the list. Located in front of the Arenal Volcnao with amazing views, the Nayara Hotel is perfect for couples but will work for families too.
Other Options Arenal:
Arenas del Mar - Arenas del Mar has been fortunate enough to have one of the most unique properties in the Manuel Antonio area. It has amazing views and private beach. All of our guests fall in love with Arenas del Mar.
Other Options Manuel Antonio:
With a country full of amazing people, a landscape that day after day just blows your mind, and some of the best rivers on the planet, I decided to call Costa Rica home. I made my early career whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River and working as an adventure guide for different companies. With this said, the goal of starting Costa Rican Resource was to get people out into nature to realizing that each and every human on the planet is a part of our natural world.
