Costa Rica is a pioneer of eco-tourism, and a quarter of the country is made up of protected reserves and national parks. This makes it the perfect adventure playground for children and parents alike. Begin your explorations by heading for the Caribbean coast, taking in waterfalls and the world’s largest butterfly collection en route, and travel by boat into the Tortuguero National Park to discover the rich jungle and marine life of this coastal rainforest. Between July and October, sights include the rare green turtle, which comes ashore to nest on the beaches. On the subject of turtles, on Costa Rica family holidays nature calls the shots.
Your children will watch, enthralled, as a sloth descends a tree trunk in slow motion, then gasp as they spot hummingbirds flitting from flower to flower. Close encounters with playful monkeys and cheeky toucans elicit delight, but rushing down a white water river will have them screaming for more. Cloudforests offer an education too: seeing tiny fluorescent tree frogs and the mating dance of the manakin will give them a taste for biology classes when they return home. And watching a live volcano smoking before their eyes might make them long to become volcanologists. Wherever you go in this serene and lovely country, the landscape kindles a sense of natural wonder.
