Trekaroo’s Favorite Costa Rica Family Vacation Experts

Il Viaggio Travel is Trekaroo’s trusted Costa Rica family vacation expert. Their custom built itineraries are anchored in exceptional immersive experiences for families. They are 100% Costa Rican owned and operated. Their small team specializes in tailor-made itineraries built around each family’s unique needs and interests.

Why Trekaroo Loves Il Viaggio Travel

Every travel partner is handpicked and vetted by the Trekaroo team. We look for operators who understand families and who are able to curate trips that are not just personalized but go the extra mile. Il Viaggio Travel does just that. They have deep local knowledge and connections with properties to help you get the best rates and any special accommodations met. If you have a child with special needs, having a Costa Rica family vacation expert architect and direct your trip will make sure that your needs are met every step of the way. Their amazing bilingual guides wear multiple hats – host, guide, driver, translator, fixer…  But what really sets Il Viaggio Travel apart is their ability to curate and craft hands-on experiences and facilitate connections with locals.  

“When we traveled with IL Viaggio Travel last year, we were particularly impressed with our local naturalist guide who acted as our host, driver, and guide. He made sure that as a mom, I didn’t have to worry about the logistics so I could enjoy the adventures as much as my kids. We loved that he would take us to local places to eat and was happy to answer our kids’ myriad of questions about everything under the sun. You know how the best trips are when you have a local show you the country that they love? Our trip to Costa Rica was exactly like that.”
