Photo Fave: Costa Rican diaper changing station

by Shelly Rivoli
Before our family adventure in Costa Rica, I had not expected to encounter many, if any, high chairs along the way, let alone a diaper changing station. Now I know better. Although there doesn’t seem to be a common word to specifically  mean “high chair” (“chair for the baby” is more like it), it became almost a joke how one would turn up nearly everywhere on our path, from the busiest roadside restaurants to a backroads barn-turned-restaurant where we ate by a pile of bricks and a wood stove (there they actually had three!). And here in the ladies’ restroom at Zoo Ave in Alajuela: a beautiful wooden diaper changing station, of course. And it works great!

If you missed my post earlier this week, don’t miss my tips for visiting the marvelous Zoo Ave – a must if you’ll be in Central Costa Rica with small kids. Also, my review of family-friendly Hotel Villa Dolce where we stayed just 10 minutes away.

It's such a relief to find a decent diaper changing station. I've had the worst time searching around even in some popular locations. love the decorations too :).

I wouldn't have expected those amenities either! What a surprise.

I've changed my son ever which way imaginable. I'm always grateful when there is a halfway sanitary option to lie him down. Just checked out your Zoe Ave post. It looks great! My son is at the age where everything is animals (and trains and cars). Anytime I can throw in something he likes I'm excited. It's going on my list!

Good for fresh air, at least! Not so good for head colds…

That's fabulous!

Especially given that I once had to change my son on a wide window ledge, with the window opened to the cold night air, while visiting LONDON! We're from Los Angeles, where we have changers in the men's room thankyouverymuch.
