Ideas for activities with kids

Hola. We are visiting Manuel Antonio park for 2 days. We will spend 1 day at the park and would like some ideas for day 2. Our kids are 7 (girl) and 3 (boy). Any ideas would be great. Thanks

It seems with kids that young and only two days in the area that you might want to just have fun at your hotel pool or play at one of our local beaches......if you really want another activitiy.....the Mangrove Tour might be a good option as well.

Fincas Naturales butterfly and frog exhibits would also be good...

The Damas Island Mangrove boat tour is a great experience. I had monkeys come into the boat

The horseback riding tour is excellent, even for kids and beginners and you get a great swim in the waterfall. They can go on their own pony, be led on a rope or ride double with a parent or a guide. Mangrove boat is great, especially with the monkeys on the boat, but often the younger kids will get bored by the end of the trip. The snorkel tour is a fun day on the boat, our snorkeling is only average though in our area. You can also ride double on the ATV tour. The kids love this and get to swim in the waterfalls too. As long as the kids are near (or in) water, they are usually happy! Enjoy!
