Costa Rica Holidays
The holidays are a great time to get away from the stresses of everyday life. The kids have a break from school, and parents can take time off as most offices are closed for part of the holidays anyways. Taking the whole family on a trip can be a great bonding experience and it’s a chance to introduce to children to new cultures, languages, and experiences.
Many families opt for vacations to warm, sunny destinations to escape the cold of the winter months. Costa Rica is a great option for families looking to get away for the holidays and spend some time exploring all that this tropical country has to offer. Costa Rica offers up something that the whole family can enjoy so whether you all have similar interests or if you’re as different as night and day, everyone will come away with memories to last a life time.
Tamarindo is a great spot for family vacations in Costa Rica. Located just a few hours from San Jose, Costa Rica’s capital, Tamarindo is on the Pacific Coast in the Guanacaste Province. This area is home to rainforests, volcanoes, and of course stunning beaches. Some activities that the whole family can enjoy including hiking through national parks, exploring natural volcanic hot springs, snorkeling or scuba diving, dolphin and whale watching, and surfing.
Tamarindo is home to some of Costa Rica’s most famous surf spots and the beaches in the Tamarindo area are great for beginners or advanced surfers. Family surf lessons are a great way for everyone to try something new and because there are waves for any level of surfer everyone will have a chance to shine. Surf camps offer packages so that in just a few lessons or even a week the whole family can be catching waves.
Staying in Tamarindo with the whole family is easy as well. There are tons of accommodations to choose from so whether you’re looking for an all inclusive resort or a vacation home rental, finding a place for the whole family won’t be a problem. Many of the surf camps in Tamarindo include lodging so if you decide to do a surf camp your accommodations may be included for that portion of your family vacation. The Tamarindo area is home to lots of fun and delicious restaurants as well so even if the kids are picky eaters, you’ll be able to keep everyone happy and well feed. There are bars featuring live music and other entertainment as well so nightlife activities will be easy to arrange as well. Tamarindo has grocery stores, pharmacies, and other amenities so anything you might need you can easily find in the area, so parents can rest assured that it won’t be difficult to travel with children of any age.
Taking a family vacation to Costa Rica is a fun and memorable to spend the holidays. Rather than spending money on presents this year, spend money on a present that the whole family can enjoy together and spend your holiday season in Costa Rica.
