Spring Break for 2018

  Family of 3 adults and 1 child visited Costa Rica in March 2018

“Looking for a Costa Rica trip that includes volcano hot springs, zip lining, horseback and ATV riding, waterfalls, authentic food, fresh market, white water rafting, picture opportunities, a little adventurous but also relaxing. 3 adults and one child ages 46, 46, 14 and 11. Pretty open to experiences, but nothing too rigorous on the adventure side.”

Welcome to kimkim!

I am happy to help you put a plan together for Costa Rica that includes all that you list, volcanos, zip lining, horseback riding, waterfalls and more.

One question I have for you, in the request email, you mentioned that your duration is 2 day? Is that accurate, or did you mean 2 weeks? I want to make sure we have the right dates to plan against.

I've put a couple of suggestions for 1-week trips together, and want to see what you think. They are just suggestions, but we can definitely customize for your family, just let me know what you like and don't like in each of them.

One week

Yenyi Fu - kimkim staff

Great, then the 1-week trip suggestions I sent should be a good reference. Take a look and let me know if you like them, or if you have something that you want to add or remove.

Traveler

I'm assuming that the ATV trip is at Adventures in Arenal and Monteverde. Is this correct? Not crazy about spending 4 hours in a car while on vacation. Anything else I can do instead? Other than that, it looks good. What kind of hotel would I be staying at?

Yenyi Fu - kimkim staff

Hi,

We can do the ATV adventure in Arenal. Instead of the 4-hr drive from Arenal to Monteverde, we can organize a few different options for you. Maybe a boat transfer across the lake, with a visit to a coffee farm, or if you want, we can also organize a horse back ride from Arenal to Monteverde. If you don't want to drive at all, we can organize transfers from your hotel to each destination.

In terms of hotels, we can help organize 3-star, 4-star level hotels. Do you have a preference?

Let me loop in Randall, who is one of our specialists in Costa Rica. He can help you create the ideal plan for your trip.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Traveler

Perfect, I think we are on the right track. I like the coffee farm idea and horse back ride. either 3 or 4 star is fine.

Randall Jiménez - Costa Rica Travel Specialist

Send proposal.

Traveler

This looks perfect. So what is this going to cost?

Randall Jiménez - Costa Rica Travel Specialist

Good morning,

I am glad to hear that you liked the proposal I sent you, I will start working on the pricing immediately.

A quick question, are you looking for two rooms or only one room with two double or queen beds (Depending on the property) for the whole family?

Traveler

Price is really going to drive the sleeping arrangements. So if you can give me options, that would be great.

Randall Jiménez - Costa Rica Travel Specialist

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.

This is a quick message to check what you thought about the proposal I sent you last week, remember this was just an idea and we can make any adjustments that you want or need.

Hope to hear soon from you!

Traveler

Thank you for the follow-up. I am reviewing and discussing with my family. I will get back to you with our decision.
