Hudson McKenna Mar Vista Pool Costa Rica 2013
Since our family moved to Costa Rica two years ago, I get asked a lot of questions about traveling to Costa Rica with kids. I recently shared the five best things to do in Costa Rica with kids on Flights.com, but I wanted to get a little more specific about why Costa Rica is a great place to travel with kids and share some helpful tips for planning your family vacation to Costa Rica.

1. Costa Rica is bigger than it looks

I live in Guanacaste, on the Northern Pacific-side of Costa Rica, which is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. The closest airport in the Northern region of Costa Rica is the Liberia Airport. Flights into Liberia are usually a little more expensive than flying into San Jose, but worth it if you are visiting this part of the country (more on this below…).

You should know that when searching for the distance between the different areas of Costa Rica, you cannot always trust Google Maps, from a travel time perspective. I would add almost an hour to anything Google Maps says! The main roads in Costa Rica are paved, but many of them are simple, two-lane highways, and traffic moves a little slower here. You can get stuck behind slow moving trucks, cattle, or just about anything else you can imagine. Plus, some of the roads in the mountains can get very windy and so it’s not like you’ll be driving at a full 60-MPH either.

2. Fly into the Liberia Airport

Like I mentioned above, if you are visiting the Guanacaste area, fly into the Liberia Airport. It is only an hour drive from most of the beaches — Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, Playa Grande, Tamarindo — and the Papagayo Peninsula. The Four Seasons and the brand new Andaz Hotel is located at the Papagayo Peninsula. The Westin Conchal and the Flamingo Beach Resort are a little further south, and then you’ll reach Tamarindo, which is another popular tourist destination.

If you fly into San Jose you will be in for a four hour shuttle ride to reach the Northern Pacific side. Don’t forget to factor in the shuttle price to and from San Jose to see if it really saves you that much verses simply flying into Liberia in the first place. A shuttle for a family of four from San Jose is about $250 each way, just to give you an idea. The Liberia Airport is also a little bit closer to the Lake Arenal area and should take you about three hours to get to.

3. A bit about driving in Costa Rica

You can certainly rent a car and drive yourself around Costa Rica. Driving in Costa Rica is not dangerous and there nothing to be afraid of. Most of the roads you will be driving on are paved and pretty easy to navigate. And, you do not necessarily need a car with four wheel drive, depending on where you are going to be exploring. If you are still uncomfortable with the thought of driving in a foreign country, there are plenty of shuttle services to take you everywhere you want to go and your hotel can help book them for you. For the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, we usually use Eco Trans. Another great transportation resource for your visit is the Liberia Costa Rica website.

The Springs Resort Arenal Costa Rica

4. Pura Vida!

The people of Costa Rica are happy, helpful and friendly. This country is built on tourism, so they are very professional and most of the people working at the hotels, restaurants and on your excursions speak English. They help tourist all year round and understand the importance of good service. However, do not misunderstand good service for speedy service — things do move a little slower in Costa Rica, so relax! The common phrase in Costa Rica is “Pura Vida.” You will hear this phrase a lot while you are in Costa Rica and it simply means, “everything is good” or “life is good,” which it really is here. Costa Ricans are known as “Ticos” and “Ticas,” they will always be polite and very kind to you, so be kind back.

Arenal Volcano Costa Rica

5.  Visit Lake Arenal and Monteverde

To really see the authentic Costa Rica, you’ll want to head to Lake Arenal or Monteverde. Yes, there are beautiful beaches in Costa Rica and many people come just for the sand and surf, but you can see beautiful beaches anywhere, quite honestly. If you want this vacation to be different from your typical  beach resort vacation, then go inland to the rain forest. This is the real heart of the country in my opinion.

You’ll want to  stay for at least two nights, as this is not a day trip — it takes too long to get there and there is too much to see and do to turn around and head back the same day. Lake Arenal is known for its lake, massive volcano and the incredible hot springs. Monteverde is called the Cloud Forest for a reason — you are literally in the clouds and It feels a bit more like a quaint European mountain town than a tropical rain forest. Beware that the weather can be cooler inland and this is where it does rain quite a bit, much more than the beaches, so be sure to pack an extra layer.

Favorite Hotels: Tabacon Hot Springs, Lost Iguana Resort, and Monteverde Lodge and Gardens

Arenal Hanging Bridges
6.  Must-try: Zip lines and hanging bridges

Zip lining is probably one of the most popular activities in Costa Rica and you should definitely try it, as well as walk the hanging bridges of Costa Rica. I recommend doing this while visiting Lake Arenal or Monteverde. SkyTrek is one of the most popular zip lining companies — they are very safe and professional and they operate in both Lake Arenal and Monteverde. There are other zip line options all around Costa Rica and I have been on a few of them, but they’re not as impressive as Sky Trek. The Arenal Hanging Bridges are also a fantastic way to spend a day as a family and from here, you will see one of the best views of the Arenal Volcano.

Casado from Monteverde Costa Rica

7.  What to eat in Costa Rica

You’ll find a variety of food options in Costa Rica. The food is good, but simple. The traditional Costa Rican dish is the casado, which consists of rice, beans, chicken or beef and a small salad. Every restaurants’ version of this dish can be a little different, but I’ve never had a bad one. Another popular dish is arroz con pollo (rice and chicken), which is a little like having fried rice. It is mixed with vegetables and chicken and kids love this dish! The fish in Costa Rica is always fresh and you should definitely have the ceviche. Even if you have kids that are picky eaters, there is plenty of chips and guacamole, fresh fruit and smoothies to keep them fed while you visit. And yes, you can drink the water in Costa Rica!

Costa Rica with Kids

8. Costa Rica is totally connected

There is wi-fi everywhere in Costa Rica, so you will never feel helpless, out of touch or unavailable. Costa Rica is still on 3G, but I can get service out on a catamaran boat without any problems and update my Facebook and Instagram as we are on adventures. Having wi-fi will also help you navigate driving directions and maps. If you want to be able to make phone calls while you’re visiting, you should contact your service provider and work the international plan details before you come. My husband and I work online everyday and we rarely have any internet issues. If our internet does go out, we blame the monkeys in the trees.

9. Mark your calendars: The best time to visit Costa Rica

It’s always a good time of year to come to Costa Rica! Okay, well, to be honest the two months that are dry, dusty and dirty are March and April. They’re my two least favorite months here because everything is brown and dead. It’s dry season and there are even brush fires near us. I would avoid coming during those two months, even though they are usually during spring break time for kids.

September and October are the rainiest months, but my favorite time of year because the rain makes everything so beautiful in Costa Rica. Typically, at the beach, the rain hits in the afternoon, cools things down and then opens up for a fabulous sunset. The rain is a little less predictable when you head inland, but if you are visiting the hot springs you want it to rain… trust me!

Traveling to Costa Rica with Kids

10. Costa Rica is kid-friendly

There is so much to do here with kids, which is why it shocks me that people go to the same old theme park every year on vacation. If you are nervous about taking your kids out of the country, then Costa Rica is the perfect place to get their first passport stamp! It’s a very civilized country that caters so much to tourism that you’ll never feel unwanted or nervous about traveling here. Kids can learn to surf, stand-up paddle board, boogie board, go scuba diving, go out fishing, zip lining, horseback riding, hiking, explore waterfalls and hot springs, go kayaking and whitewater rafting, and see hundreds of animals! What more could you ask for on a family vacation?

Costa Rica is really the ideal travel experience for families who are looking for a little adventure, but still want some modern amenities and luxuries. Depending on what type of family travel you’re up for, Costa Rica has something for everyone!

April Baby Bundle Giveaway

It’s a new month and a new Baby Bundle Giveaway to kick us off! This month, we’re featuring some favorite picks for Baby from Babymoov, a company who is innovative, modern and chic, offering products that fit perfectly into your life as a mom, while still maintaining their style.

Babymoov 0 Emission Camera LG Savvy Sassy Moms

Zero Emission Baby Camera

Babymoov is the first brand to take into consideration the potential health impacts of electromagnetic waves. With the arrival of the Zero Emission Baby Camera, Babymoov launches a worldwide innovation: the first connected video camera that completely eliminates electromagnetic waves from the baby’s room.

The secret to this worldwide innovation is the use of PLC (Power Line Communication) technology. With this system, waves are carried from the baby’s room through the home’s electrical wiring to another room in the house. Parents simply plug their camera’s adapter into an electrical outlet in the baby’s room and connect a second adapter to the home’s modem. The camera sends the signal to the modem, which then connects the camera via WiFi to any authorized device. The camera’s patent-pending acrylic mount enables the camera to be used on any crib frame.

Key Features

Unlimited Range via WiFi
Connects to intuitive and complete application for iOS and Android devices
Walkie Talkie functionality
High-resolution image & video and crystal clear audio
Multi-users – connects up to 4 users simultaneously
Lullabies
Multiple Alerts for temperature, motion detection
Night Light
Night Vision
Temperature Sensor
Universal attachment to connect to any crib or bed frame

MSRP: $199.99
Zero Emissions Baby Camera

U.S. Arrival: Late April 2015
Optional WiFi Key (for nights away from home): $19.90
Optional Receiver (to watch baby continuously without using phone or tablet): $99.90

Babymoov Nutribaby Cherry Savvy Sassy Moms
Nutribaby Food Processor – Cherry

The flagship of the company’s U.S. launch is Babymoov’s award-winning Nutribaby Food Processor, a five-in-one tool that warms, sterilizes, defrosts, steams and blends and features a digital screen for easy set-up of the functions. The Nutribaby guarantees healthy and tasty cuisine by giving parents the ability to cook different ingredients, each in its optimal cooking time, at the same time. With the Nutribaby’s two cooking baskets, parents simply start with the foods that need to cook the longest then add the other ingredients to the second basket once their correct cooking time is left in the cycle. Cooking foods separately and for the correct amount of time ensures that baby benefits from all of the foods’ vitamins and flavors.

The appliance’s detachable blender and cooking units offer the largest capacities on the market, 6.25-cups blending and 3.75-cups steaming, to help busy moms easily prepare several meals at once or prepare one delicious meal for multiple children. All five functions of the Nutribaby are digitally controlled by the LCD display that guides the user in an intuitive way eliminating the need to constantly refer to the manual or measure water. Parents simply fill the reservoir, set the cooking time and wait for the cycle to complete.

Key differences between the Nutribaby Food Processer and other baby food makers on the market:

Two Baskets: Separate baskets allow parents to cook food separately. Separate cooking ensures food keeps its vitamins and flavors. With standard food processors, all the ingredients are cooked together and for the same amount of time.

Can also be used from birth to warm bottles and jars and sterilize bottles and accessories.

Set cooking time by minute, not water level, using a digital screen. Better ability to control cooking time helps ensure that veggies and protein retain their vitamins and flavors.

Huge Capacity: 6.25 cups food processing/blending; 3.75 cups steaming. The capacity allows parents to make multiple meals at once. (Beaba: 1 cup blending; Baby Brezza: 2.5 cups blending; SmartPlanet: 2.5 cups blending; 2 cups steaming)

MSRP: $119.99
Nutribaby Food Processor

Babymoov Digital Humidifier Savvy Sassy Moms
Digital Humidifier

Babymoov’s Digital Humidifier offers a huge capacity tank with a running time of 15 to 26 hours,
rotating steam head, choice of humidity, temperature and steam output levels, an automatic shut-off
when the water level is too low, a nightlight, essential oils diffuser and LCD screen for easy
programming. Babymoov’s Digital Humidifier allows parents to set the unit to their ideal humidity
level. Once the room reaches this level, the humidifier turns off. If the humidity level drops, the
humidifier kicks back on. This automatic on/off keeps the room at the optimal humidity level and allows the water in the tank to last longer.

Key Features

Display of ambient temperature and humidity levels
Cool mist (ultrasonic humidifier) with adjustable flow
Choice of humidity levels: automatic setting from 30% to 90% humidity
Humidity levels can be programmed at desired times
Nightlight function using separate red and blue illuminated LEDs (on/off)
360° rotary mist output
Running time: 8 to 22 hours (depending on setting)
Automatic shut-off when water level is too low
Removable essential oil diffuser
Child-Safe (dial can be blocked)
Silent
Backlit blue LCD display

MSRP: $99.99
Digital Humidifier

BabymoovTurboSteamSterilizer(Product)
Turbo Steam Sterilizer

Babymoov’s Turbo Steam Electric Sterilizer is the first 2-in-1 sterilizer that offers parents the cleaning efficiency of a sterilizer and the convenience of a bottle drying rack. The sterilizer’s patent-pending turbo steam system and long, removable steaming arms direct steam at the core of bottles for efficient sterilization of the entire bottle.

The Turbo Steam Sterilizer accommodates all types of bottles and its central structure allows it to sterilize up to six bottles, inside and out, in 10 minutes. The universal system’s removable arms modulate the space to sterilize other types of products such as breast pump shields and jars.

Like all Babymoov products, the Turbo Steam Sterilizer is intuitively designed, easy to use and backed by a lifetime warranty. Step by step instructions and a measuring cup are included. An alarm sounds when the cycle is complete and the system’s automatic shutdown prevents unnecessary energy consumption.

MSRP $64.99

Currently Obsessed with Lemon

Lemon squeezed for spring!

There is just something so refreshing about a big ol’ bowl of lemons. It makes me happy. Plain and simple. Not to mention, it is the easiest way to brighten up your home after a long winter!

I love this time of year, all the spring trends start to get me excited for summer, and the warm weather. A hot color for spring is yellow and I’ve also been seeing a lemon trend popping up too! I love lemons so much right now… you could call me a bit obsessed. In fact, we even started a Savvy Sassy Moms Lemon Pinterest Board!

Real lemons are easy to pick up at the grocery store, but if you want to put some lemons in a room other than your kitchen to last all season, you can purchase these cute Faux Mini Sugared Lemons we found from Pier One Imports, one of our favorite stores to find new spring home decor items — it’s always filled with so many cute things!

Yellow can be a tricky color to wear, but it is one of my favorite colors for accessories. Yellow sandals, bags and statement necklaces can be the color-key to any outfit. Try adding a yellow necklace to a plain t-shirt to dress it up a bit.

2. When Life Hands You Lemons Napkins, $7
3. Littla Glass Bubble Bowl, $53

As a mom to a  10-year-old, I know how frustrating it is to find clothing and swimsuits for tween girls that both moms and daughters can agree on. The market is flooded with styles that are either too babyish or too grown-up and there is definitely a sweet-spot when you find clothing and swimsuits that you love and your daughter will actually wearLimeapple hits both marks — moms think it’s tween-girl appropriate, but it’s cool enough to pass your daughter’s most rigorous fashion tests.

Limeapple Active Wear for girls and tweens

LImeapple activewear and swimsuits for tween girls

Limeapple is an activewear clothing company for tween girls and they have hit it out of the park in design, style and quality. They have an entire line of athletic clothing for tweens, which includes yoga and gymnastics clothing, as well as fun leggings, unique hoodies and their popular Bubble Collection. Their pieces are perfect for heading to practice, competitions or traveling. They also have a line of swimsuits that you’re going to love.

Limeapple Swimsuits Mckenna Isle BlueLimeapple Blue Swimsuit Mckenna 2
Must-have for summer: Limeapple swimwear

Finally! A brand making swimsuits for young active girls. Not only are Limeapple’s swimsuits super-stylish, but they are all made with high-quality fabrics as well. My daughter is 10-years-old — we ordered a size 10 for her and it fits her perfectly. She is so happy with the Isle Swimsuit ($43). I could tell from the moment she put this suit on and looked in the mirror she felt confident, which is so important. She really likes that it is a tankini — it shows her stomach while still giving her plenty of coverage, making it perfect for the tween crowd.
Limeapple Aqua Swimsuit McKenna 1

Limeapple Swimsuits Aqua
Many of the Limeapple swimsuits in the size 7-14 range come with removable soft breast cups inside the lining, which is great for girls who are starting to develop so they feel supported and completely covered. This is the Curacao Swimsuit ($43) and the top was a bit tight, so I would suggest going up a size for this swimsuit. Not only was it a really adorable swimsuit, but with these two particular swimsuits, my daughter can mix-and-match the bottoms and tops, creating four different looks.

All about Limeapple swimsuits
  • UPF 50+ protection blocks out 97% of the sun’s harmful rays
  • Lined in the front for a more comfortable wear
  • Removable soft cups for added coverage on sizes 7 to 14
