Accessible only by a lengthy boat ride or a small plane, Tortuguero truly feels like it’s in the middle of nowhere, in the best possible way. As if the excitement of arriving to this sparsely populated area isn’t enough, children will immediately pick up on the kid-friendly atmosphere of Tortuguero, although it’s best suited for kids 8 and up. There are no cars, just boat rides along rivers and bike rides along paths to get around. Tour the national park to see the wildlife here, and consider visiting the local school for an immersive cultural experience. The sea turtles are one of the highlights; four different species call this area home and they nest March through October. For kid-friendly accommodations, think rustic but comfortable, much like the area itself.

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
