How about a "green" family vacation in the rainforest surrounded by breathtaking flora and fauna, warm sandy beaches, and of course the Majestic Arenal Volcano? NatureAir the world's first carbon neutral airline is making it easier for families to bring their children to Costa Rica. NatureAir would like to announce that all children ages 2-11 years old can fly with NatureAir at 25% off the ticketed price.

"We are proud to say that NatureAir is the only airline in Costa Rica to offer this wonderful discount for children. As a way to help families out year round this is not a limited time offer, because we know the traveling to Costa Rica as a family is an unforgettable experience," said Alexi Huntley Commercial Director for NatureAir.

NatureAir is not only making it possible for parents to keep more money in the bank, it's also helping them limit their carbon footprints. 100 % of its carbon emissions are compensated through the protection and reforestation of tropical forests in southern Costa Rica's rich biodiversity zones of the Osa Pensinsula. Since 2004, NatureAir has compensated for roughly 20,000 tons of carbon dioxide thru the protection of more than 400 acres of tropical forest. The company has also been able to reduce emissions by replacing light bulbs, limiting copy paper, recycling, and improving it's flight plans in order to conserve more fuel, an improvement of roughly 4% in fuel efficiency per hour of flight.

While road travel is very difficult in Costa Rica, the thrill and ease of flying is unbeatable. Nature Air's planes are fitted with panoramic windows that allow unobstructed views of the volcanic activity, tropical waterfalls and even simultaneous views of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Instead of spending hours in the car children can be running through the sand in under an hour.
