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!
"My wife and children, ages 7 and 5, just returned from an amazing Costa Rica adventure arranged by GreenSpot. We arrived in Costa Rica at the very end of March and traveled to three different locations. Everything was arranged perfectly, and it seemed like every person by it driver, pilot, or hotel staff we came in contact with knew our next steps better than we did ourselves. The children went absolutely juts over the wildlife we saw which included monkeys (all 4 Costa Rican species!) crocodiles, iguanas, macaws, toucans, coatis, just to name a few. The kids are ready to go back tomorrow and whenever we go, I'm sure we'll be contacting GreenSpot.travel again.
