A kid’s-eye view of Costa Rica with 14 year-old podcast host Sophia Aquino

Esencial Costa Rica


Fourteen year-old Sophia Aquino from Coral Gables, Florida had lived the Costa Rica experience through dreamy pictures and stories--that is until her mother surprised her with a birthday-present trip to explore the jungles and towns of Costa Rica. Join Sophia as she interviews a gaggle of kids on Costa Rican holiday eco-adventure.

Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer NPR Podcast guest host, Sophia Aquino talks with kids from around the country and Canada as they share their insights and recommendations about cool things to do and see in Costa Rica.

Highlights include traipsing through the jungles and beaches of Manual Antonio National Park, horseback riding and swimming in waterfall pools in the mountains, ziplining, white water rafting, milking cows at a rural farm, savoring the Children’s Museum, and National Museum in San Jose.
