Costa Rica - Family of 6 - July

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip for the family in July to Costa Rica. Mom, Dad, and 4 kids ages 18-12. So adventure is on the list for our one week vacation. We've never been to Central America so we're looking forward to it.

As I've researched Costa Rica I am pleasantly surprised how much there is to do. Certainly we want to see a rain forest, volcano, etc.

But I wanted to get your advice on how best to use our week. Should we establish a "base" on the coast and do day trips? Is it better to do an A-B-C trip?

Given the limited time, what would you recommend as an itinerary?

Also, its often hard to find reasonable accommodations for a family our size, so any suggestions here would be great too.

Thanks!
