The planning of a family vacation can be exhausting, it requires a lot of forethought and tons of packing, making you get stuck over thinking everything. If this sounds familiar, let us tell you that it doesn’t have to be this way.

Picture yourself sunbathing, a chill Margarita in your hand and the kids enjoying the pool. The next day, the little ones amazed by the monkeys on the trees waiting in silence to spot a crocodile, while you take-in the tranquility of the scenic view of a pristine wetland.

Costa Rica can be one of the best family vacation destinations. The opportunity of enjoying a tropical paradise with all the comfort of a full-service, high-end accommodation is what makes the difference. Not to mention, that the year-round tropical weather makes the packing so easy!

Years of experience welcoming guests, combined with the know-how of having two kids of my own, makes My Guanacaste Vacation a certified expert in all the things to consider when planning a family vacation.
