Arguably the best family destination in Latin America, Costa Rica is well known for its white beaches, verdant rainforests and staggering biodiversity. One of the smallest countries in the Americas, it is also ranked as one of the world’s most progressively active environmental champions. Boasting an excellent tourist infrastructure and some superb accommodation options, it provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable family adventure.
Your journey begins amongst the rich landscapes of the Central Valley, where you’ll venture into the steaming fumeroles and sulphurous lagoons of the Poas Volcano National Park. Visit a dairy farm and go white-water rafting through rainforest before learning how to make your own delicious burrito. Then head to Arenal Volcano National Park for a canopy walk, wetland boat safari, plantation tour and chocolate making activity.
Then head to the north-west of Costa Rica to Rincón de la Vieja National Park, where you will explore the park on horseback and on foot. Finally, the country’s Pacific coast then provides opportunities for relaxation with your family after an activity filled journey.
