Americas Costa Rica

Costa Rica Family Adventure Holidays

Costa Rica is a great destination for families and a good first experience of Latin America. Many of the hotels have family facilities, and the tourism infrastructure is generally well set up and organised with English being widely spoken. There is certainly plenty to see and do - from exploring nature in the rainforest to live volcanoes and relaxing beaches. If the kids get tired of the nature; you can send them zip wiring through the canopy or rafting down the river! You certainly won't get bored here.

Our family activity and adventure holidays in Costa Rica are shown below:

Holidays to Costa Rica

Families Worldwide offers a choice of active and adventurous family holidays to Costa Rica. You can be active and go white-water rafting, mountain biking, explore the rainforest by zip wire and canoe on the Caribbean coast. Visit rainforests and volcanoes, see sloths, crocodiles and toucans and go on whale-watching trips.

"The Costa Ricans pride themselves on their friendliness and enjoy life to the full. Their own favourite expression sums up everything: ¡Pura Vida! (Pure life!) You'll hear it all the time - learn it and enjoy saying it all the time to whomever you meet."
The Lefley family, Costa Rica Tailor-Made

Costa Rica is a great destination for families and a perfect first experience of Latin America. Sarapiqui is in the heart of Costa Rica's rainforest and a great base for activities such as rafting and kayaking. Tortuguero is famous for the turtles that come here to nest and both Caribbean and Pacific coasts offer fantastic beaches and wildlife watching experiences. Visit the natural wonder of Arenal Volcano with its beautiful cone shape and peer into Poas Volcano which steams and shoots water and mud up in the air. Playa Ballena is a perfect place to finish your adventure and witness the humpback whale migration.
