Depending upon where you visit in Costa Rica it can now be a very touristy area such as the places of Manuel Antonio, Tamarindo, Jaco, or Arenal. Because of Costa Rica's rough terrain their are many places that are also off the touristy path that can give you a look into the not so touristy areas of Costa Rica.
Learning from the Ancients
During this tour we took a boat trip into an indigenous reserve and gave this family an experience that they would not find in any of the touristy towns of Costa Rica. It is important to experience this and see that all of Costa Rica is not living off of tourism economy. It is an excellent learning experience and should be a part of every Costa Rica Family Vacation even though it might take you out of your comfort zone for a few hours.
