Important Information About This Trip
When you choose Natural Habitat Adventures for your custom Costa Rica family adventure, you may select from a wide range of smaller luxury and deluxe hotels and lodges. As the world’s premier nature travel company, we focus solely on small-group journeys and avoid the large impersonal hotels that devalue an authentic nature experience. Please consult with one of our Adventure Specialists to determine which hotels and lodges can best accommodate your group’s size and preferred travel style.
Costa Rica contains some of the world’s greatest natural treasures, which make it a family adventure paradise. This sample itinerary features some of the most exciting and interesting activities for families within this ecologically diverse country. The itinerary is designed with families in mind, including accommodation options that offer family rooms and some that allow young children to participate in scheduled activities. Because it is a custom adventure, we will check availability on your dates of choice, and while you will be traveling independently, you may accompany other guests from each camp as well as share a naturalist guide on wildlife drives, forest walks and other activities. Please note that there is a minimum age limit of 8 years for the zip line, and a minimum age limit of 9 years for rafting in Sarapiqui. Our recommended hotels and ecolodges combine comfort and atmosphere with the highest quality nature and wildlife experiences. Depending on the time of year and the movements of wildlife, accommodation selection will heavily influence the quality of your adventure. Our team of Adventure Specialists can help you choose the best combination of locations for your specific dates. Call our experts at 800-543-8917.
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
