Head to Tortuguero, where you can watch one of the world’s most amazing natural wonders – the arribada, when hundreds of sea turtles come ashore in a single night to lay their eggs. Venture into the limestone caverns of the Venado Caves; while not for the claustrophobic, there’s no denying that the rock formations, bats, and strange subterranean creatures are fascinating. There’s just so much to see and do!

Costa Rica’s variety of terrain guarantees that there’s something fun for every young traveler. Over the years, a number of areas in Costa Rica have become world-renowned for their adventures. At the Arenal Volcano, ziplines and canopy tours are perfect for the thrill-seekers, and the nearby Pacuare River is well-known for incomparable whitewater rafting trips. Tamarindo Beach is a surfer’s paradise for both experts and amateurs – and whether you’re 7 or 70, learning to get to your feet while riding the waves is an experience everyone should have.

Top Costa Rica Family Resorts

Sitting between the Pacific and Caribbean Oceans, Costa Rica features innumerable activities and resorts that cater to the whole family.

Each beach offers a distinct personality – from Playa Conchal’s pink-hued waterfront made up of millions of crushed seashells to the white sand and palm trees found along the Caribbean. The very diversity of the country, ranging from the misty cloud forests and tropical rainforests to the arid rolling hills of Guanacaste, brings variety no matter the activity – you could horseback ride every day of your vacation, and still discover something new in each destination.
