Costa Rica with teens a good vacation?

Jump to last reply

We've been thinking of a trip to Hawaii, but were encouraged to look at Costa Rica. I really don't know where to start as I don't know areas at all.

We would probably have a couple weeks there in July, need to be budget conscious and would like to do our own food most of the time with a few nice meals out. We have four kids girls 13,14,15,17. They want a combination of beach and adventure. White water rafting has specifically been mentioned.

Would Costa Rica be a good family vacation? If so, in what areas should I be looking? We'd love a good chunk at the beach, and some jungle feel would be great, too. Volcano?

Any advice would be so wonderful! Thanks in advance!
