Costa Rica travelling: Why take a Costa Rica family vacation?
If you and your family like a sense of adventure in a safe environment then perhaps a family vacation in Costa Rica is what you are looking for.
There is so much to see and do in this Central American paradise. You will have to carefully select the sights and activities that appeals to you and your family.
There are 300 Costa Rica beaches through out the country. Many of them are located within easy driving distance of Costa Rica’s national parks and wild life preserves. Go snorkeling in the morning and take a nature hike in the afternoon.
On another day visit a volcano and then go mountain biking in a rain forest. Photograph exotic birds and wildlife. Later enjoy the challenge of white water rafting down one of Costa Rica’s many rivers.
One of the many natural wonders you will discover in Costa Rica are its butterflies (over 250 species). You will be surprised at their size and color.
You can even take a tour of a working “butterfly farm”; an educational and fun experience for the entire family.
Stay at hotels that cater to families. Many of these hotels have activities (swimming, water slides, hiking) for families right on the premises or within easy walking distance.
Meet local Costa Ricans (“Ticos”) and learn about their language (“español”), culture and history. You can even make arrangements to visit a local school (“escuela” in Spanish).
Also, enjoy local foods and cuisine. Delight your family’s taste buds with exotic tropical juice flavors like mora (blackberry) or eat fresh “papaya” or “piña” (pineapple). Take the opportunity to taste Costa Rica’s famous Salsa Lizano (slightly sweet salsa) at a local restaurant.
Make plans to take a Costa Rica family vacation soon! You won’t be disappointed!
