A week of adventure is offered in Costa Rica
By Georgina Cruz
First Disney made us a gift of enchanting characters in story books and cartoons, later on in theme parks –with the opening of Disneyland five decades ago – and also vacation centers to enjoy the parks comfortably. More recently, Disney gave us cruises also filled with fantasy.
And now Disney brings us yet one other new magical surprise: adventures that are guided excursions to some of the most popular destinations in the world. This is Adventures by Disney, a company launched as a preview in 2005 and 2006 with trips that include, Path to Pura Vida, a one-week adventure in Costa Rica. In 2007, the Pura Vida excursion has increased its departures, and is offered from March to November (before it was offered only from June to October).
Disney, who knows a thing or two about family holidays, takes charge of all the details from transportation from one place to another in the itinerary and reservation of first class hotels, up to arranging for the services of local guides that know perfectly the territory being visited.
The excursions also offer activities for children and special memorable events for the family.
The seven-night trip to Costa Rica (called "Path to Pura Vida") includes, among other things, visits to the Arenal Volcano, the National Park of Manuel Antonio for diving, enjoying the beach and the forests.
