Why this is the getaway your family needs...

We've designed this Signature Trip to be both an opportunity to get away from it all and a chance to truly live. Get your family to put their phones down and explore all of the terrain Costa Rica has to offer; see animals thriving in their native habitat; and go on amazing adventures –– together.

The most adventurous part of this trip will be…

Depends on your preferred terrain. Everyone will enjoy the beaches of Manuel Antonio and swimming in La Fortuna Waterfall, but for a rush of adrenaline, nothing beats knowing that you trekked around the famous Arenal Volcano or walked through the canopy of Monteverde Cloud Forest.

This trip will change your life by…

Reminding you of the importance of making memories. Is work important? Yes. Is school important? Yes. But years from now when you’re all gathered around the holiday table reminiscing, it's treasured memories you’ll be discussing, and top of that list will be the adventure you shared in Costa Rica.
