With lots of activities, this family trip to Costa Rica makes a good introduction to tropical wildlife, but also offers time to relax by the pool. The distances covered are short, so you can enjoy your stay to the full.

A full menu of rainforest trail walks, canopy walks, boat trips, guided visits – all with experienced naturalist  guides – will keep interest alive throughout the trip and ensure there's no time to get bored. Yet there is also plenty of down time so you can relax as a family – all the hotels where you stay have a pool. And if you want to be more active, you can use this time to take advantage of the many optional activities available locally – everything from whitewater rafting to zip-lining.
