We are opening up the Costa Rica Eco-travel Adventure to families!

Costa Rica is a wonderful place to travel and for the second time in our long history of traveling to this Tropical Paradise, we are opening up this adventure to children and their parents/grandparents/guardians.  For more information on the trip please visit the website.

If you're wondering why we're going south in the summer (normally we go in February) it's to see migrating and breaching humpback whales and nesting seat turtles.  Hope you can join us!
