We did the zip line and boat tour, followed by lunch, and it was the perfect mix of adrenaline excitement and nature education for our young children (5 and 7). The zip line is incredibly safe, and even younger kids can participate with a guide or parent. It's just the right length and the views are spectactular. Our same guide then accompanied us on the Rio Tempisque boat tour, where we saw crocodiles, monkeys, iguanas, so many kinds of birds I lost count. Lunch was tasty and served very efficiently in the restored historic home original to the property. We were not able to stay for the historical part of the tour that included discussion of life in the sabana in prior days as well as sugar-making demonstration, but we will return another time! I was also pleased to see that they have options for people who are not able or do not prefer to take the boat ride or other type of tour - they do have a motorized vehicle tour that allows folks to see the nature without getting into boats or on horses. A wonderful outing and one we will remember always!
If traveling with young children, make sure you discuss in advance bathroom availability and when you will have access to your "stuff" to get snacks. I made the mistake of leaving my kiddos' snacks in the car, and one of them got super cranky on the boat ride due to hunger. Fortunately another (more well prepared) set of parents shared theirs and everyone survived!
