San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2013
Costa Rica is Central America’s top-ranked family travel destination with a long list of thrilling attractions, adventures, and phenomenal wildlife. Given all of the options, it can be difficult for a family to narrow down the perfect itinerary, particularly in a week-long trip. In order to solve this dilemma, Ciao Bambino, a leading voice in luxury family travel, and Kensington Tours, award-winning private guided tour operator, worked carefully together to design this new Kidtastic Ciao Bambino Costa Rica Adventure just for families.
Ideal for children of a variety of ages, each stop offers an array of exotic activities for school age kids to teens. Moreover, the itinerary is structured to minimize time in the car on Costa Rica’s notoriously slow roads while maximizing fun. “For families who love action, Costa Rica is the perfect destination,” notes Kathleen Doheny, VP of Marketing for Kensington Tours. “This new Kidtastic itinerary with Ciao Bambino contains all the stuff that family legends are made of.”
The eight-day tour was meticulously crafted after Amie O’Shaughnessy returned from Costa Rica with her own jet setting-clan on a customized Kensington Tours adventure. Brandi Merchant, Kensington’s cheerful Latin America Destination Expert, worked tirelessly with Amie to research and create an itinerary that makes it simple for all families to access the best of Costa Rica in a kid-friendly format.
“Getting up close to Costa Rica’s wondrous creatures was a priority for us,” says O’Shaughnessy. “Seeing animals in the wild takes time and patience. The best family itineraries are multi-dimensional and ensure kids stay engaged through cultural encounters, adrenaline adventures, and get their much needed downtime.”
Highlights from this new Kidtastic Ciao Bambino Costa Rica Adventure:
>> Enhanced by carefully-vetted kid-focused private guides and naturalists who provide education, entertainment, and personalized attention at every step along the way. This means families have the freedom to enjoy Costa Rica at their own pace, in their own way.
>> The trip begins at a coffee plantation just outside of San Jose’s international airport. The exotic adventure starts immediately in this authentic cultural setting and everyone has a chance to unwind.
>> The next stop is Arenal, Costa Rica’s adventure central, for three days of outdoor thrills including a safari float trip, a ride down the country’s highest zipline, and enjoy an educational cultural experience at a local, organic farm. Families get plenty of time to play at the spectacular The Springs Resort & Spa, a fantasy jungle playground with 27 thermal pools, river tubing, horseback riding, mountain biking, a climbing wall, an onsite wild cat rehabilitation center and more.
>> Manuel Antonio, a tropical paradise set of the Pacific Ocean, is home for the second half of the trip where families can pair wildlife safaris by land and sea with relaxation on the beach, ensuring everyone returns rested from their holiday.
