Waterfalls & springs:
A family vacation in Costa Rica is not complete without a hike through a rainforest leading to an amazing hidden retreat of waterfalls and natural springs.
One of the most widely acknowledged waterfalls is La Fortuna which is positioned close to Arenal & is part of the numerous tourist activities enclosing the active volcano.
Also near Arenal is the Tabacon Hot Springs – a great natural spring for a romantic day out.
Part of the under-sized yet world-famous Manuel Antonio National Park, Playa Manuel Antonio is a top beach destination for family. A stony cape known as Punta Catedral shields the beach against rolling waves, making the water pretty calm and ideal for kids.
Playa Tamarindo is yet another very popular beach in Costa Rica. The wave breaks here are just perfect for surfers of any skill level.
If you are looking for a less crowded beach, then Playa Guione is a perfect alternative. More secluded than Playa Tamarindo, Playa Guione also feature great surfing scene.
Costa Rican beaches offer much more than just surfing and swimming. The black sand of Playa Ostional is a renowned sea turtle nestling site between July and October. Opt for a night tour to witness the yearly nesting, known as arribada.
