Why book a Costa Rica family holiday with Rickshaw?
Your Costa Rica family holiday will immerse you in a jungle bursting with brightly-coloured wildlife, have you swimming in turquoise waters, and hiking to smoking volcanoes. You’ll soon see why this charismatic country is the perfect place to take the kids on a family adventure.
Spotting wildlife with your children will become second nature as you glide along winding rivers, or venture into the rainforest on a giant canopy bridge. Gain a first-hand education into the ecosystem of Costa Rica as you explore together (it’s an ecotourism hotspot with high sustainability levels). Well set up for families, you’ll receive a friendly welcome from the local Ticas and Ticos (gals and guys) who generally speak good English, although trying out a few Spanish phrases will be much appreciated.

Getting around in Costa Rica
The beauty of a Rickshaw trip is the ease of travelling independently, either by hiring a 4×4 with plenty of time for stops along the way or choosing shuttle buses where it’s easy to sit back, relax and enjoy the journey as your experienced driver navigates the route. The distances between destinations vary from 45 minutes to 5 hours and it’s easy to find service stations for stops along the way.
Peace of mind with our local partners
We work closely with our local partners in Costa Rica who are, like us, committed to sustainable tourism which includes wildlife conservation and helping the community.
