Located in the Heredia region of Costa Rica about two hours from San Jose, this mountain and dense rainforest region features plenty of thrills for families seeking adventure. The Sarapiqui River runs through the small town and ziplining, kayaking, whitewater rafting, hiking and horseback riding are available for all ages and skill levels. No experience is needed for these adreline rushes just the pura vida attitude! Plenty of wildlife, especially frogs, can be found in Sarapiqui, too. Sarapiqui is a bit more off the beaten path so families will not find an abundance of hotels to stay in but if you are seeking adventure this is the town to visit, even for just a day trip.
