Our Favorite Spots For Family Travel in Costa Rica

  1. Manuel Antonio National Park - mixes sun, beaches, rainforest, ecolodges and adventure in one spectacular park like nowhere else on earth. After a day of exploring the rain forest and spotting an amazing biodiversity of creatures like butterflies, birds, plants, insects, sloths, and four species of monkeys! Then, relax on the beach for a while. Don't relax too much, or a monkey or coatimundi may try to steal your snacks! What's a coatimundi? You'll just have to come and see them, the photos don't do justice, they're so cute!
  2. Monteverde Cloud Forest - is high in the mountains, dense and green and home to a few of the same species you'll find in a lowland rain forest such as howler monkeys and sloths. But, many more species are unique, thriving in this cooler, more humid forest in the clouds. Your guide will mimick the call of Central America's most legendary bird, revered even by the Maya. Woooeeee, woooooeee! And with some luck, a brilliant green and red Quetzal will come to see who's making all of the Quetzal sounds!
  3. Arenal Volcano - is a chance to get just close enough to an active volcano. On an active day, you'll likely see explosions of smoke coming out of the top and at night, red glowing lava flowing down its slopes! There are volcanic hotsprings with pools and literally an entire river of hot water!
