Why you should visit Costa Rica
Family-friendly Costa Rica Hotels
The Tamarindo Diria, on Tamarindo Beach, has been welcoming guests for 40 years, so it has a long history of offering excellent service. It’s right on the white-sand beach, has a family-friendly wing with its own pool and five restaurants. The more palatial Riu Guanacaste and Riu Palace Costa Rica, both on Playa de Matapalo, also cater to kids with the RiuLand kids’ clubs and playgrounds.
Costa Rica Highlights
While you might be more interested in Costa Rica’s flowers and plants, the kids will love spotting howler and spider monkeys, tree-hugging sloths and even snakes and crocodiles on river tours. They will certainly love the zip-lining tours that will see them whoosh through the forest canopy. The Mega Combo Buena Vista day trip has a 12-platform zip line through the Guanacaste mountain range, followed by 420-metre water slide that shoots you out into a freshwater pool.
