What to do with the kids in Papagayo?

The Costa Rican “Spring Break” is a 2-week period in July. The students here love to go to some of the beaches which we have in abundance. This year my eldest daughter Bianca (who lives in Atenas close to San Jose) came to visit us here in Guanacaste (particularly her little sister Samantha who is almost 3 years old).

The “Gold Coast’s” main attractions are our beautiful beaches and perfect weather. As a result of being a main hub for tourists and a fairly large local community we have a great infrastructure which provides a plethora of different activities without having to drive large distances or many hours.

Here are some of the things we did;
Our first activity was visiting the Monkey Farm, located in Ocotal.  Other than monkeys we saw all kinds of farm animals like peacocks, pigs, horses, birds, rabbits, and I am sure I am missing one or two more. We even took pictures of Samantha on her very first horse ride. The pictures make it look like she is riding all by herself.

The next day we went shopping at the Liberia mall. In the middle of the mall there is a huge playground. It is completely made of rubber and cushioned flooring so the kids can go wild and crazy without having to worry about their safety. This is all a HUGE world for Samantha and she was so very excited at every section of the Park, for her it was like Disney Land!!
Sammy Parc
On the third day we went to see Ice Age 4 in 3D.  In my opinion this was the best Ice Age so far!!LOL!  Our little beach community of Playa Hermosa has a very modern movie theater so this was also another cool and unique activity that you normally would not see at the other beaches.

On the fourth day we all went on a Catamaran called “Vision” for a sailing tour. The “Vision” has 2 huge platforms, one is covered and the other one is open air. They had a disk jockey spinning tunes to which all 90 passengers were dancing and having a blast everywhere on the boat. In addition to the dancing we saw manta rays, went snorkeling by a white sand beach called Playa Huevos and we also went into a couple of natural tunnels/caverns which brought us to the other side of the peninsula exiting on the other side of the bay!!  This was a very cool afternoon for all ages, not just the little kids.

We did all of these activities in 4 days and could have done many more things and seen many more attractions. We could have gone on a River Tour to see the crocodiles and other tropical birds, reptiles and more monkeys. There are many amazing waterfalls close by. We could have gone to Rincon de la Vieja which is our closest volcano to sit in the thermal waters, exfoliate in the mud baths or sit in a natural sauna to detoxify. How about horseback riding, zip lining, jet skiing, fishing, off roading, hiking, biking, paddle boarding, well I think you get the idea. There is no lack of activities and attractions here in our immediate area of the Papagayo Region.  Regardless if you are a resident or a tourist you can enjoy the relaxing tropical atmosphere, have limitless adventures or see many of the local attractions all very conveniently located close to home! Your choice, your pace.

How is the Medical Care?

Costa Rica has some of the best medical care in the Western Hemisphere and it is only a fraction of what it costs in the U.S.A. Tourism is one of the biggest businesses going as tens of thousands of people each year come here for everything from cosmetic surgery to hip and knee replacement.  Dental care is also first class but without the high cost of North America!

Why choose Costa Rica?

Experience: Costa Rica has been hosting medical tourists for more than fifteen years and is one of the top five medical tourism destinations in the world.

Accreditation: Hospitals and clinics have attained international accreditation through U.S.-based accreditation agencies JCI, AAAHC and AAAASF

Patient-Oriented approach: Medical and dental providers offer modern technologies and protocols while providing a personal and caring approach.  Patients say that it’s like returning to a time when the patient, not the system, came first. Easy access Travel is only a few hours from most U.S. cities. English is widely spoken in Costa Rica, and the friendly environment and commitment to excellence set Costa Rica apart as a medical destination.

How is the Food?

Traditional “Tica” food is not very spicy but it is very nutritious, it is made from rice, beans, corn, vegetable, meat, chicken or fish and usually served with corn tortillas. Costa Rican veggies, fruits and meats products contain less chemical preservatives and additives then other high populated developed countries. There are thousands of Costa Rican specialties that are very healthy and economic, mostly because they all are coming from national products.

Because of the large number of immigrants from the past 25 years, supermarkets and Specialty stores offer an impressive amount of imported fine products from North America and Europe which also benefits of Costa Rican. To this day you can buy almost every specialty from other countries with great quality such as wine where there is a spectacular variety and now much cheaper than before!

Only in our small region of the Gulf of Papagayo we have 5 large supermarkets most of them located in Playas de Coco offering a mixture of national fresh products and a variety of imported products as well. There is also fruit and vegetable markets in several communities including exotic products with unique flavors that are unknown to  foreigners.

The fact that we are at the beach we can buy fresh fish every day from the fishermen directly at Playas del Coco beach. We also have artisanal divers that catch seafood that do not exist in traditional markets and deliver right top your home which most of the time are cheaper than meat.

Being a very fertile country with an incredible abundance in the diversity of its food, Costa Rica offers a variety and quality of fresh and healthy food for even the most strict nutritionist and also for the most demanding culinary gastronomy lovers!

Bon Appetit!
