Costa Rica family holidays

Costa Rica is a perfect destination for a fun-filled and active family holiday. This friendly country in Central America features a large variety of landscapes, including mysterious cloud forests, steamy rainforests and stunning coastlines.

The country is extremely family-friendly – it’s safe, the people are some of the most welcoming in the world and the landscapes and the wildlife will make a lasting impression across the generations.

Embark on our Family Costa Rica: Jungle walks and turtle spotting holiday for an action-packed itinerary, including canoe trips, wildlife spotting, zip-lining and white-water rafting. Wow the kids with an extraordinary diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna on your two-week journey through Costa Rica. Read our Costa Rica activities guide for more inspiration.

For a slightly shorter stay, why not join our Signature Costa Rica: Wildlife and volcanoes holiday, which can easily slot into half-terms?
