Costa Rica's Hidden Highlights Family Adventure

Caribbean culture and volcano views; rich rainforest and beautiful beaches. Enjoy our favourite hidden highlights, and leave the logistics and driving to us.

The great thing about Costa Rica is that it's possible to experience everything that first captured your imaginations about this beautiful land - the beaches, the wildlife, the laugh-a-minute activities - and take it all way off the tourist trail. You'll not only enjoy a definitive family adventure, but leave knowing something about the people you meet and the places you visit.

If you like, today could be spent with Tino, a local star who can share with you the rich wildlife of a beautifully unspoilt coastal reserve and the exotic abundance of his own tropical garden.

Day 4 - Hike and snorkel in Cahuita National Park

One thing we love to do here is to hike along the pretty beaches and wildlife-rich forests of Cahuita, taking a boat ride back from the headland to snorkel at the coral reef if conditions allow.

Day 5 - Move on to the volcanic north

You now swap the Caribbean for the volcanic landscapes of the north. But rather than the crowds and commericalism of Arenal, you'll head to a brilliant lodge tucked away in quiet countryside.
