About a 3-hour drive northwest of San Jose, the Arenal region is one of the top areas of the Costa Rica for the vacation of a lifetime. Anchored by the Arenal Volcano and the town of La Fortuna, it is jam-packed with kid-friendly activities for every age and interest. Thrill seekers will love the abundance of zipline tours, the whitewater rafting opportunities, the waterfall rappelling and the ATV rides. Those who like calmer experiences might fancy a coffee farm tour, a soak in the natural hot springs or a scenic kayak ride on beautiful Lake Arenal. For kid-friendly hotels, the choices are just as diverse. Consider a large resort offering onsite amenities galore, or book a smaller property off the beaten path with spectacular volcano views.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
Our offices are closed for the holiday. We will respond to your request on Monday, November 28th. If you are a Ciao Bambino client experiencing an emergency while traveling, please leave a voicemail on
