Costa Rica Family Vacations

We specialize in creating the perfect Costa Rica Family Vacation. Whether it’s discovering the mysteries of the rainforest, learning to surf, or building massive sand castles in the children’s program of an all-inclusive beach resort, there’s something for all types of families, all ages of children, and all types of budgets.

There’s nothing like seeing the wonder of Costa Rica through the eyes of a child.

We’re lucky. We live here and have watched our children grow up experiencing Costa Rica’s many wonders on a daily basis.

I’ve helped Fabrizio gather hermit crabs for family crab racing. And I’ve watched him marvel at the amazing veil of strange mushrooms encountered during a night walk on the Osa Peninsula.

I was right alongside when he caught his first wave. And, I’m not sure who was happier.

Most importantly, for you, we’ve helped thousands of parents, grandparents and children of all ages share the experience of a Costa Rican family vacation. Learning, laughing and growing together in the process.

Endless options and experiences

Take a chocolate tour and enjoy fresh samples, while learning how cacao is harvested, processed and turned into chocolate bars and cocoa powder. Watch sea turtles lay their eggs on a remote beach. Soak in tide pools carved in to volcanic rock. Bathe in the waters of a jungle waterfall pool. Let the kids monkey around with wild monkeys overhead. After that, sip a cool refreshing coconut right off the tree, opened for you with a machete.

For the adventurous, there are safari floats, zip line tours and local cowboys with expertly trained horses for riders of all ages. Walk along hanging bridges through the rainforest canopy. And conquer you fear of spiders, insects, snakes and bats with the help of a skilled naturalist. The children will be fascinated.

Above all, Costa Rica provides the setting for you to enjoy these experiences and each other, together.

From the beaches to the cloud and rain forests, from active volcanoes to calm ocean bays, from large all-inclusive resorts to private villas and vacation rentals, to small boutique nature lodges, we’ve traveled Costa Rica extensively with children and can make sure your Costa Rica family vacation fits your and your children’s needs.
