Fun for the whole family, with lively music and entertainment, carnival, face painting, cookie decorating and of course, photos with Santa. Light breakfast bites and coffee will be served.
  • Young Explorers is a brand new outbound camp experience launched with the Peninsula’s own Papagayo Explorers. Every day, one three-hour outbound is offered for each camp cohort: tweens (ages 8-12) and teens (ages 13-16). Beyond sports, fun, adventure and exploration, campers will focus on a pura vida purpose each session, such as boosting confidence, inspiring perseverance, tackling conservation or teambuilding. Every day is the chance to do something completely different. So, make the most of it with a few full days or a week.
