Group Christmas Week Beach and Adventure Vacation

Jump to last reply

We're in the beginning stages of planning a family vacation (ages 17-50s) for 12-18 people the week between Christmas and New Years (~7 days). We're looking to rent a large house with a daily chef, but also considering hotels/resorts.

Our initial idea is Costa Rica, spending a couple nights at Arenal National Park to see the Volcano, waterfalls, maybe white water rafting, and then spend the rest of the week by a nice sandy beach, probably Pacific side, to relax, play beach volleyball, etc.

If we do Costa Rica, any suggestions for the best beaches or recommended beach houses for our relaxing part of the trip? Alternatively, any suggestions for other central america regions that provide similar adventure (hiking, waterfalls, volcanoes, white water rafting type activities) and beach combinations?
