The Colors and Textures of the Tropical Forest
Give your children an intriguing alternative for your family rainforest tour in Costa Rica and the opportunity to learn about nature and her secrets during your family vacation. Through interactive workshops and special packages, we enable you and your family to discover the beauty and excitement of the rainforest.
This day is full of exotic tropical colors and sensory exploration in the middle of the forest, perfect for family vacations with small children and fun for everyone. Your guide will greet you and "tattoo” you with a safe, washable natural ink that comes from the yellow fruit of a tropical plant.
Your guide will then lead you through the snake exhibition, where you’ll learn about the reptiles and amphibians that inhabit our land. You’ll stop at our Color Station, a small garden of plants and seeds, which your children will use to perform an entertaining experiment.
While you continue with another guide through the Medicinal Plant Garden and the Heliconias Gallery, your children will continue playing in the painting workshop. They can design their own T-shirt with natural dyes, or make their own fossil of exotic leaves. This tour is complemented with a flight through the treetops on the Aerial Tram and a delicious traditional Costa Rican meal for the whole family.
