This tailor-made holiday in Costa Rica begins in Bajos del Toro, a wild mix of misty cloud forest, extinct volcanoes and countless waterfalls. This is where wildlife rules supreme: watch your children’s eyes light up as they hear the roar of a howler monkey erupt from the jungle or glimpse a fluorescent flash of a hummingbird among the emerald foliage. You’ll explore the rainforest to its full potential, with opportunities to ride on horseback around the blackened slopes of Poás Volcano, yoga mornings among the tropical surrounds and thrilling walks to gushing waterfalls; never mind the kids, who wouldn’t get excited to see the Hidden Treasure Waterfall on a Costa Rica family adventure holiday with a name like that? After working up an appetite, pick your own herbs and vegetables and fashion your own hearty dish on a traditional cooking class. You’ll have fallen in love with the jungle by now no doubt, so make the ultimate sustainable tribute by planting your own tree.
Next up, you’ll spend a few days in a luxury tented camp right under the gaze of one of Costa Rica’s icons: the charcoal-hued cone of Arenal volcano. If you want your children to be immersed in nature, this is the Costa Rica wildlife holiday to do it. Peeking above the canopy, your tent will have prime views of Volcán Arenal and the surrounding emerald rainforest. The camp has its own sloth sanctuary, so you’ll all have fun trying to spot these elusive creatures high up in the trees, while naturalist-led birdwatching tours will train your eye to spy toucans, oropendolas and more. To ramp up the excitement, rainforest walks after dark allow you to meet the jungle’s frogs. You’ll also spend time at an agroecological farm and archaeological ranch, where you can milk a cow, see how sugar cane is distilled into liquor and learn the indigenous method of making chocolate.
Arenal’s famed hot springs are a good way to recharge your batteries and a precursor to your final few days on your bespoke holiday to Costa Rica on the Papagayo Peninsula. An oasis with cashmere-soft sands backed by pristine jungle, this is the country’s ultimate coastal retreat. It’s a natural playground like no other, with a trio of beaches to get comfortable on and an abundance of water sports to enjoy, like stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and snorkelling. Little explorers can head off on their own guided adventures, whether its mini conservation projects, exploring mangrove-fringed channels by outrigger canoe or off-radar mountain biking – all thrilling ways to round off this unforgettable family holiday.
Floating like a cloud in the rainforest canopy, you will never be more in touch with nature than at the El Silencio Lodge & Spa. This stunning eco-lodge is based in five hundred acres of Costa Rica’s Central Volcanic Valley, between the Juan Castro Blanco National Park and the Poás Volcano National Park. Its grounds feature a tropical forest, rivers winding through the picturesque emerald grounds and three waterfalls you can reach on treks led by the lodge’s resident guides.
Separate from the world and connect with nature at this award-winning luxury tented camp sitting above the rainforest. Inspired by the luxury lodges of Africa and Asia, every tent is slightly elevated above the jungle canopy so you’re treated to commanding vistas of Volcán Arenal, the area’s iconic cinder cone. There are so many ways to soak up the surrounding wilds, whether its spending time in the camp’s sloth sanctuary or embarking on birdwatching trips.
Boasting a trio of postcard-ready beaches, all licked by thick rainforest and overlooking the shimmering sapphire-blue waters of Culebra Bay, the Andaz Resort occupies one of the finest stretches on the celebrated Papagayo Peninsula. This eco-chic beach resort not only offers tropical seclusion and water sports in abundance but also reflects the country’s pura vida philosophy in its locally inspired experiences, whether it’s wilderness hikes, pottery painting and authentic cooking classes making chorreadas or gallo pinto.
