FAMILY REUNIONS IN COSTA RICA
Costa Rica is an awe-inspiring setting for your next big family reunion. Resorts abound with rooms and venues to fit special accommodation for any size or kind of group.
Explore San Jose for a chance to see the city’s culture, history, and varied cuisine. Wander through its winding, cobblestone streets or take a guided tour to experience a rare moment in time, surrounded by colonial architecture. Visit the Casa Amarilla, or Yellow House, the stunning colonial-style mansion that is home to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. It’s closed to the public, but your family can sample a rare piece of history as they catch a glimpse of the famous ceiba tree planted by John J. Kennedy in 1963.
Venture into the jungle and take part in large group tours that include zip-lining, waterfall repelling, and nature walks where you can see every type of animal. Every member of your family will gaze in wonder. Sloths dangle from high tree branches and capuchin monkeys sing and call to one another, tossing fresh-picked fruit back and forth between them before scurrying off through the canopy.
Sprawling, immaculate beaches are just the right way to unwind after a busy morning spent exploring. Long stretches of sand are perfect for family games like two-hand touch football, Frisbee, and beach volleyball. Later, while the kids perform their gymnastics routines in the sand, building sand castles and memories with their cousins that will last a lifetime, the adults can take it easy with quiet conversation, reminiscing about their own childhoods spent together engaged in similar adventures. While the warm breezes pass from person to person, you’ll wonder why your family ever got together anywhere else.
