1. Buena Vista Del Rincon Eco Adventure Park Hotel & Spa

Our luscious Buena Vista Del Rincon Eco Adventure Park Hotel & Spa is just what you need. Nestled in the center of the tropical forest in the province of Guanacaste, we focus on running a sustainable resort that doesn't harm the environment.

Commuting from the Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) to our resort is an easy 44km (27 miles) drive. We're also 64km (40 miles) away from the beach.

After taking in the impressive scenery, you'll arrive in paradise. Room accommodations come in three locations, cabin, lake, and hacienda. Dining in our restaurants will undoubtedly thrill your appetite. Our food is grown and harvested on our farm. So you and your family will enjoy organic meals.

If the kids are in the mood for fun, then take a hike through the tropical forest, go ziplining, or slide down the jungle water slide. See it and experience it for yourself.

2. Four Seasons Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo

Bring the kids to the Four Seasons Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo for fun in the sun. This resort offers white-sand beaches for tanning, and the ocean provides swimming or surfing.

Do you want to explore? Go to the Monteverde Cloud Forest to tour the wildlife refuge. At the end of the day, enjoy a family meal together in one of many eateries before resting in your comfortable suite.

3. Arenas Del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort

Arenas Del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort are situated on the beach. Grab the kids and take surfing lessons, go snorkeling, and paddleboarding.

After you've gotten your fill of the beach to tour the Manuel Antonio National Park, where monkeys, sloths, and birds live and play. With so many things to do, time will fly bye.

4. Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica

Dreams Las Mareas provides a beach, mountains, and jungle for guests to peruse. Enjoy the beauty of Dreams Las Mareas as a family or branch off. The Explorer's Club provides entertainment for children ages three to twelve. The activities focus on science, nature, and exploration.

The Core Zone Teens Club is perfect for kids ages thirteen to seventeen. It's the ideal escape for teens wanting to spread their independent wings and mingle with their peers.

The resort also provides babysitting services 24 hours a day, which is perfect if you're visiting for a wedding, but don't want to leave the kids at home.

5. Nayara Resort Spa & Gardens

Nayara Resort Spa & Gardens puts you in relaxation mode with a welcome drink. But they offer a two hour late check-out. However, their accommodations allow the time in between check-in and check-out to create lasting memories.

Your family can experience rafting, horseback riding, or walking through the jungle. The elegantly rustic rooms balance the best of indoor and outdoor decorations.

Pampering at the spa helps the tension melt away after a busy day. Dining in their restaurant is a great way to unwind after exploring the forest.

6. Tabacon Grand Thermal Spa & Resort

The sprawling views of water and land engage guests upon arrival. Tabacon allows visitors to see the Arenal Volcano, which heats the Tabacon River thermal water that flows through the resort.

Waterfalls and warm pools comfort guests too. Exploring the surrounding jungle will excite the kids and your inner-child. But their well-known spa offers services and treatment sure to put you at ease.

The comfortable family suites provide privacy, and the rest needed to enjoy an active day.

7. Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort

Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort offers an on-site golf club, horseback riding on the Jaco Beach and hiking in Carara National Park. Ziplining and shopping are both mood-boosting activities for the entire family.

Children can partake in the Tortuga Kids Club during your spa treatment or intimate lunch with your partner. The rooms provide luxury linens, high-speed Wi-Fi, cozy beds, and amazing views of the property. But the rooms aren't the only place to find comfort. Massages, body scrubs, and facials remove the dead skin and muscle tension.
