Friendly and beautiful, Costa Rica is a fine destination to introduce children to the adventure of travel. Though still a developing country, it boasts some of the best tourism infrastructure in Latin America, with a range of family-friendly activities surrounded by some of the loveliest scenery in the world. Whether you are looking for a beach vacation, a wildlife hike, or extreme adventures including zip-line canopy tours, horseback rides and volcano climbs, you’ll find it all here.
Costa Rica is compact, about the size of West Virginia—you could wake up on the Caribbean, do a rainforest tour after lunch and watch the sun set into the Pacific ocean, all in one day.Editor’s Note: This recommendation was taken from our Costa Rica Things to Do blog.
