Welcome to Explornatura
Costa Rica is a peaceful and prosperous country in Central America. We at Explornatura want to be your ambassadors to this beautiful tropical paradise. There are two ways to explore and experience the natural splendor and amazing adventure activities we have to offer; by online or in-person tours and programs.
Our virtual program and camp options are brought to you using dynamic and user-friendly platforms and local Costa Rican professionals. Our Online Children’s Adventure Camp is designed to be intuitive and allow students to go through our different adventures with as little assistance from their parents as possible. This way we can promote the child's independence and help them get the most out of their virtual experience.
Our In-Person Programs and Camps are designed to entertain and educate both the child and their entire family. Our activities are designed to fit with the different developmental levels, Spanish abilities, and age groups. Parents have the choice of joining our different daily tours and activities or they can opt to enjoy their free time while the children are in camp. Every day we combine Spanish lessons for all member of the family who want to learn, with adventure tours, cultural activities, and surfing.
Before, during and after the camp, we are here to assist parents in the planning and logistics of their family’s time in Costa Rica. We can set up lodging, transportation, tours, and activities through our personalized concierge service. Come early and visit a different part of the country. Stay afterward and experience different adventures as a family. We are not only experts in all that is available in and around the Tamarindo, but also with every region of the country.

The last year has been an exceedingly difficult and completely unprecedented time for the entire world. Costa Rica shut down its boarders to international travel in March and only started to relax those rules in July. It was during this time that we started to develop our Online Spanish Programs and Children’s Adventure Camp. Initially we thought of it as a way to keep our staff working and to continue to promote learning and Costa Rica to our clients until we could once again welcome them back to our country in-person. What we did not anticipate though, was how popular and in demand these types of educational experience would become. So, we are going to continue to offer these great options to all our clients now and into the future.
Our online educational programs are designed to offer comprehensive and collaborative learning experiences for people of all ages. We have Spanish lesson that are private or small group. We have Spanish Book Clubs and Costa Rica Cooking Classes. Every program can be customized to fit yours or your groups or family’s learning needs.
The online Children’s Adventure Camp is a true collaborative effort that brings together adventure professionals from all over the country to showcase their unique tours and cultural experiences. Whether it is scuba diving off the Gold Coast of Guanacaste or white water rafting down a jungle lined river, we offer an in-depth peak into all the different experiences Costa Rica has to offer. We want your children to learn new things and see new sites that excite them to want to learn more. And if this motivates you to bring the whole family down and do these experiences in person, that is even better.
