Costa Rica is always a great place for families to travel with kids. You have incredible wildlife, rainforests and cloud forests, adventure tours, and live volcanoes. The country is known for its friendly people and good service, along with its commitment to the environment and to peace.
Outdoor-loving families will find the travel experience enriching for all ages. What makes Costa Rica so great for families is that each day can bring a different adventure: sighting monkeys, sloths and iguanas in the jungle, thrilling zip lining, river rafting, swimming by waterfalls, and hiking near a volcano, to name a few.
In the northwestern province of Guanacaste, Hacienda Guachipelin is a beautiful, family-friendly property. Set on a traditional Costa Rican ranch by the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park, the award-winning eco-hotel offers fascinating Costa Rica nature tours and fun adventure tours.

Besides being sustainable and as organic as possible, meals at Hacienda Guachipelin’s restaurant are delicious. A huge breakfast is provided in the room rate.
With Hacienda Guachipelin’s One Day Nature Pass, you can swim at waterfalls and natural volcanic hot springs, go hiking in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park, learn about ancient cultures on an archaeology tour, and see exotic wildlife in the ranch’s Butterfly Garden, Serpentarium & Frog Exhibit. The dry tropical forest covering the western side of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste creates an interesting ecosystem for many different animals and plants than you would see elsewhere in Costa Rica.
You don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy Hacienda Guachipelin’s Adventure Center, open every day from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Many day visitors staying in other Guanacaste locations come to the popular eco-adventure hotel for tours.
