The main reason we planned a family trip to Costa Rica was to experience its incredible wildlife with our kids. When we heard that Corcovado National Park was one of the best places to see wildlife in the country, we made sure to add it to our three week Costa Rica itinerary with kids.

We almost didn’t go to Corcovado National Park as it’s very remote and quite difficult to get to independently. But then we discovered Sukia Travel, a local tour company which offers a multi-day family tour to Corcovado National Park based out of Drake Bay. We quickly signed up and we’re so glad we did – our family tour to Drake Bay & Corcovado National Park with kids was an absolute highlight of our Costa Rica family vacation.
