Perfect for a weeklong getaway, it dazzles with lovely colonial buildings, inviting beaches, impressive volcanoes, and lush lava landscapes (in which parrots appear with the frequency of our pigeons). Our fun, active family adventure focuses on the country’s Pacific side, never straying far from the water, and drive times are kept short. There are opportunities to hike, swim, kayak, surf, horseback ride, and learn about history and local ways of life. Let our experts know what your dream family vacation looks like and we’ll make the arrangements.
