If the prospect of spending the next few months bundled up at home, fighting the cold with high heating bills and nightly fire doesn’t sound appealing, maybe it’s time to a book a family adventure to Costa Rica and thaw out for a bit. Family vacations to Costa Rica are a great way to spend breaks from school with activities that the whole family can enjoy. An excellent family getaway can be booked by signing up with a surf camp or surf school, where the entire family can learn a new hobby, improve on already existing skills, of simply goof around and have some fun during the winter months.
Many families from the U.S., Canada, the UK, and other parts of Europe head to Costa Rica during the chilly months to warm up and take a break from work, school, and the cold weather than can start to wear you down. Surf camps and surf schools are popular family adventures, offering classes, rentals, and accommodating surfers of all skill levels. One of the most popular regions of Costa Rica for family surf camp adventures is the Guanacaste Region, located on the Pacific Northwestern side of the country. The area is home to some of the most gorgeous and stunning beaches in all of the country and also some of the best locations for surfers. Both beginners and experts will be able to catch some waves on the shores of Tamarindo Beach, Playa Grande, and Playa Avellanas.
Known for having the country’s most consistent surf breaks and the best weather this area is a hot spot for family adventure getaways. When not catching waves, the whole family can explore more of what the area has to offer, including some of the best national parks, including Rincon de la Vieja, Las Baulas National Park, and Palo Verde National Park. Here visitors can explore mangroves and waterways home to a variety of plants and animals such as crocodile, caiman, howler monkeys, spider monkeys, and two types of sloths, toucans, parrots, and the country’s famous Blue Morpho Butterfly.
