Adventure Guide to Costa Rica

Adventures for Children If your parents didn’t have any children, there’s a very good chance you won’t have any. ~ Clarence Day, 1874-1935

There are many things kids can enjoy in Costa Rica. Anything to do with water comes to mind – look for swimming pool parks at Ojo de Agua and Orosi, in addition to many small towns. But for other distractions, look to Pueblo Antiguo (“Old Town,” open Fridays and weekends), two km/1.25 miles west of Hospital Mexico in La Uruca, on the way to the airport. In its 4.86 hectares/12 acres, it attempts to re-create Costa Rican life as it was between 1880 and 1930 in three sections: City, Coast and Country. Live actors display and explain crafts. Rides and fast food. Proceeds benefit the hospital, built in 1964 in response to the polio epidemic of the 1950s. . 506/231-2001.

Of course, San José offers the Children’s Museum, Bolivar Zoo and Spyrogyra (see San José Walking Tour, above), and the Butterfly Farm and Ave Zoo near Alajuela (see Alajuela section for details). Catch the Dulce Nombre de Coronado bus from Av 7, Calle Central, to the Clodomiro Picado Institute (. 506/229-0344). Here, kids can research snakebite venom and watch the staff extract it on Fridays at 2 pm. Ask the driver for the stop. Free. Costa Rica Expeditions (. 506/257-0766; www.costaricaexpeditions. com) offers active Family Tours, which they’ve done for years. This might be a good choice for your family group.
