Ten Top Reasons to Visit Costa Rica for Summer Vacation
Summer is approaching, and it is time to start planning that family vacation. If you are looking to truly get away and enjoy yourselves this summer, these 10 reasons might just convince you that Costa Rica is the perfect place for your family vacation.
Cost is probably at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to a family vacation, and Costa Rica is a surprisingly affordable choice. Because the country is located close to the United States, flights to Costa Rica are less expensive than flights elsewhere overseas. In addition, dining, activities, and amenities are less costly than you might think.
Families used to the daily grind of school, work and activities will find the leisurely, relaxed pace of Costa Rica to be a delight. Costa Ricans are family oriented and place as high a premium on relaxing and having fun as they do on working.
The weather is great.
You can count on warm weather, balmy sea breezes and sunshine year round – even during the rainy season.
Packing is easy.
As long as you bring some light clothing layers; a bathing suit; some hiking and water shoes; some bug spray; some sunscreen; a duffel bag; and a camera, you’re good to go.
Finding the best place to stay is a snap.
Los Sueños Resort offers beautiful condo and villa rentals with amazing amenities at reasonable prices. The resort is centrally located to many activities, as well as great restaurants and shopping.
There are lots of kid-friendly activities.
From boating and fishing, to ziplining, surfing and hanging out on the beach, there are plenty of fun things for kids to do in Costa Rica. Best of all, they’ll get plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise!
There are lots of parent-friendly activities.
Adventurous parents will love canyoning, whitewater rafting, or taking an ATV or horseback riding tour. Parents who stay at Los Sueños can enjoy couple’s massages in a first-class spa, golfing on a world-class golf course, dining out (or in) on five-star cuisine, or enjoying a bonfire together on the beach.
The whole family will love going on wildlife tours together, and seeing who can spot a crocodile, capuchin monkey, toucan or scarlet macaw first.
You have the chance to learn about a new culture.
Costa Ricans are friendly, open and warm people who enjoy meeting those from other cultures. If you head into the smaller towns and local restaurants and shops, you’ll be introduced to the Tica way of life. You may even learn a little Spanish!
Costa Rica’s warm weather, blue skies, lush foliage, jewel-like flowers and beautiful beaches make it a true tropical paradise, and an unforgettable vacation spot for everyone in your family.
