Costa Rica Family Vacation

Nurturing Nature

Costa Rica is deservedly known as the Jewel of Central America and has been rightly lauded as one of the top travel destinations for adventure. A diverse nature lover's playground, the country never fails to charm, whether you're kayaking through the thrilling rapids, riding horseback to stunning waterfalls or ziplining through the lush canopy.

Trip Details



We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.


These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.



“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”


“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”


“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”


“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”


“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Hotel Punta Islita, Guanacaste

We chose the sophisticated Punta Islita for our Costa Rican adventure because they share our love of contrasts. Where else would you find a jungle retreat on the Pacific that boasts tennis courts, a spa and an infinity pool? The outdoor dining area is covered by a thatched roof and features elegant international cuisine. Best of all, you can listen to the sounds of the rain forest as you sway in a hammock on the terrace of your luxurious room. View hotel website »
