Costa Rica

Family

Costa Rica is the perfect destination for families looking for either an active or relaxed holiday.

With a low malaria risk and numerous activities such as rafting, zip-lining, canopy walkways, active volcanoes, tubing, snorkelling, whale watching, birdwatching and boat trips, Costa Rica provides a wonderful way to experience the rainforest and cloudforest with incredible wildlife viewing that will appeal to children of all ages.

A wide range of excellent lodges and beach hotels to choose from in Costa Rica also means you are not stuck in one area, and whilst those with children aged 3 and under may be more limited with the activities in which they can partake, there are many hotels with excellent child facilities that are more than capable of keeping children entertained.
