Our Trip to Paradise

“Life doesn’t get any better than this”, we thought to ourselves as a toucan flew overhead and shrieks of excitement could be heard as a double rainbow formed in front of the kids. Costa Rica is full of incredible sights and sounds and hands down, was the best destination we could have chosen for our family vacation. Not only was it a haven to escape the rush of daily life, but it was an adventure that our children will never forget. Days could be filled with lounging lazily by the pool or being pampered with a massage to hiking through the rainforest or surfing at one of the local beaches. Our options and activities were endless, and we didn’t let the fact that we were traveling with 4 children (including a toddler and an infant) stop us! In fact, it made for a great fieldtrip for the older kids who learned all about the characteristics and animals of the rainforest.
Our accommodations were Grade A. Casa Big Sur proved to be everything and more than we anticipated. Nestled atop the rainforest, the sunrise vistas were breathtaking and having a howler monkey as our wakeup call was a pretty cool experience. Upon our arrival, the house was open and inviting, the kitchen already stocked with food, the pool ready to be jumped in, and a beautiful mahogany crib was awaiting our littlest weary traveler. The house staff was incredibly friendly and attentive to our every need. Our hosts Ben and Sidia, made us feel right at home in addition to making us feel like family. Our time in Costa Rica and especially at Casa Big Sur is something we’ll never forget. We intend to be back soon, ready for another adventure and ready to settle into Pura Vida!
