Lush and amazing, Costa Rica is a thrilling spot for a family vacation. Kids can swim and splash all they want in ocean surf, swimming pools, rivers, and hot springs.
Children are amazed by the tropical wildlife-butterflies, tree frogs, monkeys
and toucans-and a treetop canopy tour is not to be missed by kids or grown-ups.
Smaller in size than West Virginia, Costa Rica still has 800 miles of beaches and
coastline and rugged tropical mountaintops over 12,000 feet. Costa Rica visitors can
choose from San Jose International Airport (SJO) near the capital city, or Daniel
Oduber International Airport (LIR) near Liberia in the north.
Costa Rica loves travelers, and it's full of family-friendly resorts and inns.
Mountain lodges make a great place for kids and parents to see wildlife and go canyoning.
On the coast you can travel to gorgeous luxury hotels with beaches, gardens and trails where
kids can run and play.
Choose a rainforest resort or beachside condo—in Costa Rica, your family can choose its own adventure.
