Key To Costa Rica Offers Family Vacation Planning Services And Customized Costa Rica Family Tours
BRATTLEBORO, VT--Key To Costa Rica specializes in family vacation planning and ecotours throughout Costa Rica, based on author Beatrice Blake’s 30 years of writing the guidebook, The New Key to Costa Rica. Key to Costa Rica’s CONSERVacations are personalized, active, engaging, and budget-friendly ecotours.
Key To Costa Rica offers a two-tiered approach to family vacation planning:
(1) customized ecotourism packages, called CONSERVacations and (2) travel planning advice for independent travelers.
Key to Costa Rica CONSERVacations give families the chance to experience the wildlife, culture, and natural landscapes of Costa Rica in a highly personal and hands-on way. Guests have their own private bilingual naturalist guide and driver who accompanies them for all or part of their journey, making for safety, security and ease while exploring “off the beaten path” destinations. The whole family reaps the benefits of learning from a professionally trained Costa Rican guide who can help them spot wildlife and understand the fascinating interconnectedness of plants and animals in Costa Rica’s diverse ecosystems. The guides also know how to keep things engaging and fun.
The authenticity of the experiences offered through Key to Costa Rica CONSERVacations comes from decades of connection with the country and its culture, yet their customized ecotours are an incredible value compared to other ecotours, especially since each family has its own private guide. To make these tours even more affordable, reduced prices are offered for families with kids under 12 and groups of 5 or more.
Key To Costa Rica’s Kid-friendly Ecotours are designed to accommodate younger children, while their Active Family Adventures and Nature and Wildlife Tours are appropriate for kids 7 to 12, teens and young adults. Young people have an opportunity to be actively engaged in their surroundings by helping feed and take care of animals at a wildlife sanctuary, seeing how Costa Rican kids make toys and games from plants found along rainforest trails, helping to milk the cows and make cheese at a village dairy, learning how chocolate is made in indigenous communities, visiting a traditional “trapiche”
In addition to customized tours, Beatrice Blake uses her expertise to help travelers avoid being overwhelmed by travel planning through her personal travel consultation services. Beatrice works with potential travelers to assess their specific travel needs and to help them create an itinerary that fits their interests, budget and time frame. She offers expert advice about transportation and accommodation options, ways to avoid delays and hassles, how to keep in touch with home while traveling, and more.
