Kinder und KanuFamiliy vacation Costa Rica

A journey with kids is always exiting. Costa Rica is an adventurous vacation destination with many activities for kids. The flight from Europe takes a long time, about 15 hours, but usually the children are sleeping. We recommend booking an overnight flight, when travelling with children.

It is helpful to be well prepared with toys and other devices to entertain your children.

The entry of Costa Rica is not complicated. You will get the border and customs-form on the air plane. The passport needs to be valid for more than six months.
After the immigration, when you are leaving the airport, a member of our staff will pick you up and bring you in our hotel. Depending on the traffic, the ride will take about 15-30 minutes.

Depending on which part of the world you are traveling from, it is likely to get a “jetlag”. To avoid or reduce the intensity of it, it can help to sleep on the plane. If you have problems sleeping on the plane, do not worry- even a few hours of sleep are better than nothing. On the day of your arrival, we recommend you to stay awake as long you can. With kids, it is much more difficult, because they cannot control there tiredness, like adults. When the kids cannot stay awake any longer, you should pay attention that they are not sleeping for too long.



We recommend, not taking too much things with you, because heavy luggage is disruptive. In almost every of our recommended accommodations, there is a laundry service. It is also no problem to storing your luggage or parts of it in our Posada Nena.
It is not necessary to get crazy about bringing enough drugstore products; you will be able to get everything you need in Costa Rica.

Depending on your activities, you should bring rain clothes and closed shoes, especially if you want to go hiking in the jungle. Because Costa Rica's location is right next to the equator, the sun is very strong; travelers with children should be well prepared with sun protection.


In general you should not have too many worries about the food. Fruits should always be washed, tap water is mostly potable. For sensitive children it is better to buy bottled water. We recommend to try the local food, but there are also international restaurants almost everywhere.

Health care:

Your health prevention routine should not change due to the fact that you have kids. You should carry a medicine chest, with medication against diarrhea and small wounds. The medical care is in general very good in Costa Rica; but you will not get the best possible health care everywhere in the country. That is why it is always good to have an Idea where you are and where the next hospital is located.
