As a child, I didn’t consider the sacrifices my parents made in order to
whisk our family of six, half way across the world on regular
intervals. In fact, there may have been times I complained about having

Odyssey Outdoors recently returned from a GreenSpot family trip, and they share their experience in their latest blog post Costa Rica With Kids: Good Green Fun. Warning: Do not open link above with kids in the room - zip line photos may be too exciting for young audiences!
"As seasoned travelers, having been to all 7 continents, we've learned when choosing a travel consultant it is best to find someone who specializes in a country or region. When planning our 45th anniversary trip to Costa Rica we selected GreenSpot over several other agencies. Irene Edwards was easy to work with, understanding of our desires, extremely knowledgeable, and responsive to our email and phone requests. We wanted a private, upscale and luxurious vacation, and Irene obliged with great destinations, magnificent hotels, friendly and knowledgeable guides, and an adventurous itinerary well suited to our desires. To allot maximum time at each destination and minimize travel time from place to place Irene arranged private charter flights. We wouldn't think of planning another adventure to Central America with anyone but Irene and GreenSpot."
