Family Activities
Depending on participants age, families can enjoy intense activities such as the Sky Tram and Sky Trek Tour (zip lining), a trip to Rio Celeste and Tenorio Volcano, a full day boat tour to Cano Negro or a horseback ride to La Fortuna Waterfalls. If you are oriented to litgher options, a Volcano hike with a dip in the Hot Springs, Safari Float at Penas Blancas River or touring on the Arenal Hanging Bridges may be a good fit for your family. Families with small children may enjoy a great experience at Arenal Natura, a small zoo with local flavor.
El Trapiche Tour (coffee and cocoa plantation), Monteverde Butterfly Garden, The Frog Pond and the Monteverde Train Forest are activities that may be suitable for participants of all ages. Those willing to endure a medium hike, should try a visit to Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve and adventure on the Hanging Bridges. Teenagers and adults looking for a real adrenaline spice can't miss the Zip Line and Tarzan Swing experience.
Perfect destination for fun in the sun and relaxation. Choose a beach hotel with gym and spa services, order a facial, a skin treatment or a full body massage and relax with the soothing sounds of the waves at night. Golfers are encouraged to stay at the Westin Golf Resort and Spa Playa Conchal or at the Four Seasons Resort to experience championship golf courses with extremely high service standards. Is your family looking for activity-filled days? The Canopy Tour Mega Combo (Canopy tour, water slide, hot springs, mud baths and horseback riding in a full day adventure), a hiking tour to Rincon de La Vieja National Park, a Zipline Adventure or a boat tour through Palo Verde National Park are among our favorites.
Family Activities for the entire family are guaranteed in the Manuel Antonio area. Its National Park is the most visited in Costa Rica, still rich in wildlife that you can eye-catch with the assistance of your tour guide. Don't forget to bring your bathing suits for a nice family time at the Manuel Antonio beach located inside the Reserve. Damas Island Mangrove Boat Tour is another activity suitable for all ages in the rainforest; as well as the Catamaran Adventure Tour for families seeking a fun time in the ocean. The lucky ones will be able to spot some dolphins! Families looking for the adrenaline filled activities will be thrilled to experience the Canopy Tour (Zip Lining) and going river rafting at Savegre River.
A family friendly destination where most lodges include programmed tours as part of the stay. Night turtle search, kayaking, night walks in private trails, fishing, aquatic bicycle, frogs observation, canal rides and birding are among the most popular activities in this area. Some lodges have access to both the canals and the caribbean beach side, allowing family members of all ages to enjoy all the wonders of this unique part of Costa Rica.
