Costa Rica is the most family-friendly destination in Latin America, with children receiving a warm welcome wherever you go and plentiful activities on offer to appeal to younger children and teenagers alike. Three main regions will be visited on this itinerary that combine a great range of activities such as a chocolate tour, canopy zip lining, a tarzan swing and cloud forest canopy walkways. However these can easily be tailored to focus more on nature walks and night walks in the jungle, or even more adventurous activities such as rafting and zip lining depending on the preferences of your family! At the end of the tour three relaxing days will be spent on the beach if you are ready to completely unwind before you head home, but this area has a choice of activities within easy reach should you find yourselves getting restless.
