Costa Rica Vacation with Kids

Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and I was lucky enough to take my kids and mom this past December thanks to Dramamine.  I first experienced Costa Rica in October 2010 when my husband and I honeymooned there for a little over a week.

 

I remember during that trip dreaming about returning to the lush and tropical country with my kids, when we had them.  So when Dramamine reached out to me about an action-packed adventure I jumped at the chance.

It was quite literally a dream come true!  And even better, we experienced absolutely no motion sickness during our weeklong stay in paradise.  We packed two kinds of Dramamine, Dramamine Non-Drowsy Naturals with Ginger for my mom and me, and Dramamine Motion Sickness Relief for Kids, a chewable motion sickness tablet for kids.

My daughter Harper experiences motion sickness, a lot.  I cannot tell you how many times she has thrown up in the car, trains, planes and anything else that moves.  I’ve become a master at cleaning up vomit, minimizing the zone of sickness, and swiping throw-up bags from airplanes.  Even my mom gets in the action because they really are the best!

We have tried having her not eat food, moving her car seat to the middle seat position, having her sleep in the car, having her not sleep in the car.  We tried motion sickness bands, ginger suckers, and tums (someone told me the calcium helps with motion sickness).  Nothing that we tried worked.  Until that is, Dramamine for Kids!

We went on a catamaran boat excursion, and guess what?  Absolutely NO motion sickness!  Which meant we were able to enjoy paddleboarding, swimming in the Pacific Ocean, eating and drinking, and even some dancing on the boat.

We went on Hanging Bridges, 13 of them to be exact on a 2.5 hour hike in the Arenal Volcano area.  Still no motion sickness!

I went Ziplining on the most incredible carbon fiber zipline course with 13 cables.  No motion sickness.  And then the real test, bungee swinging, and still I conquered it with no motion sickness!

For all of your travels, make sure you pack Dramamine (I always look for the non-drowsy varieties) so that you can enjoy the fun moments, and all of life’s adventures, with no motion sickness!
