Families who travel to Costa Rica know that Costa Rica is a fun, easy and safe family vacation destination. In fact, Costa Rica is this year’s most recommended travel hotspot in the world!
Positioned between Nicaragua and Panama, Costa Rica is easily accessible from North America and Europe with numerous daily flights. It is one of the safest countries in Central America, is affordable, easy to travel, and English is widely spoken besides the native Spanish language.
Here you have sunny beaches, thrilling rainforest, beautiful lakes and rivers, and breathtaking volcanoes and mountains. Add in exciting Costa Rica adventure tours and nature, and happy, friendly people, and it is easy to understand why Costa Rica is so popular.
The best way to plan a Costa Rica family vacation – especially for the first time – is to go with a Costa Rica vacation package from an experienced Costa Rica travel agency.
Vesatours specializes in Costa Rica vacations and custom travel itineraries, for nearly 30 years. Their multilingual travel consultants take care of your hotels, transportation and tours, designing a vacation plan just right for your family. A good recommendation is to use their trained naturalist guides. Costa Rica is filled with wildlife, but families may miss a lot of it without a naturalist guide who knows where to look and what to listen for in the jungle to give you the best experience possible. A guide ensures that all of your family members’ needs are met, and is a wealth of information about the country.
