Offering a peaceful vibe that somehow coexists easily with exciting adventures, there is always something wonderful for families to enjoy and if you are thinking about escaping the cold of your hometown this winter, we at Stay In Costa Rica are happy to provide family homes that will be your sanctuary for your stay. This guide to family-friendly winter activities in Costa Rica will ensure that no parent will ever hear the dreaded phrase, “I’m bored,” during their time in the tropics.
Family-Friendly Winter Activities in Costa Rica
We are very close to nature here in Costa Rica, and never more so than when visiting Monteverde Cloud Forest, located in the Puntarenas Province, about 2.5 hours from your Stay In Costa Rica haven of comfort. Offering tours that include bird watching, nature hikes, and night hikes that bring the forest to life, this preserve was created in 1972 on about 328 hectares, an expanse that has increased to over 10,000 hectares today. Proving that education can be fun, Monteverde, also known as the Great Divide, sits on two continents, offering the ability to step over the separation between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, allowing the kiddos the distinct thrill of being able to say they stood on two separate continents at the same time. The tours of Monteverde Cloud Forest, led by knowledgeable and personable guides, are highly recommended for all traveling groups, but when your children realize that they can touch the clouds with a visit to this preserve, the delight they express will make you happy you chose to experience this family friendly activity.
Toes in the Sand
Of course, not all adventures have to be structured ones during your Costa Rican vacation, and perhaps the most memorable activity you can share with your children will be a visit to the beaches of our tropical nation. Greet each morning with a walk along sandy shores at sunrise for some private moments with your favorite traveling companion before the kiddos awaken, and spend entire days on these sand beaches, swimming, snorkeling, or simply sitting at water’s edge building sandcastles with your tiniest travelers. And yes, even in the winter months, this is the most popular activity, as summer reigns eternal in this part of the world and temperatures are more than likely going to be in the 90s during your stay!
Vista Los Sueños Park
Vista Los Sueños Park in Jaco Beach is a different sort of theme park, swerving away from costumed characters and mechanical thrills, offering instead a natural adventure that will excite every member of your family. Zipline through the rainforest, marveling at the verdant beauty and the opportunity to examine Costa Rica from the sky or, if you desire the views but aren’t keen on flying through the trees strapped to a thick cable, ride a horse into this tropical paradise you can enjoy the views from the ground and still have some excitement and thrill involved! Also offering extreme canyoneering, ATV adventures, coffee tours, and an exclusive beach day tour, this experience is destined to take your breath away, making you wonder why you waited so long to take this family vacation!
Even in paradise, the urge to chase a dimpled white ball around verdant courses can be strong, and of course, is another popular family-friendly activity in Costa Rica. La Iguana Golf Course, located in the Los Sueños Resort is an 18 hole championship course that also offers a beautiful peek into the natural side of the area, including glimpses of the iguanas that the course is named for, as well as monkeys, birds, and exotic plants. Challenging but not intimidating, La Iguana can be the perfect introduction to the game for your older children, creating a new family tradition that will be loved for years to come.
While we aren’t quite sure that “mini fore” is even a term, we do know that the attention span of your youngest traveling companions might not be a match for an entire 18 holes of golf, but that’s ok. The Mini Golf course in nearby Jaco Walk offers the perfect introduction to the sport and the ideal way to develop a love for the sport.

Spend your days exploring the beauty of Costa Rica with the knowledge that every night will be spending enjoying all the comforts of home. This guide will give you a sneak peek into what a vacation in Costa Rica should provide!
Property Walkthrough: Casa Solara Family
This would normally be the point that we would begin to extoll the virtues of the inside of our luxurious sanctuaries, but today, we want to do things a little differently, especially as the exterior amenities of this stunning property will make you want to spend as much time as possible, exploring all your piece of paradise has to offer. Perched high in the hills overlooking Los Sueños, the creamy stucco walls, iron railings, and red tile roof create a dramatic contrast to the verdant landscape that surrounds it while still managing to feel cozy and appealing. The indoor/outdoor lifestyle is very popular in our hometown, and as walls of windows open out onto multiple levels of decks, you will never feel cut off from all that beauty.
The back of the home is where the magic really happens, offering multiple places to lounge, relax, and bask in the stunning views, perhaps even from the infinity edge pool perfectly positioned to enjoy views of the bay and then the sea just beyond the trees. A hot tub will be much appreciated, offering a touch of romance intermingled with serious healing properties; travelers are often surprised at how tired and achy their muscles can get after a day of vacation adventures. Enjoy cocktails at sunset, taking in the panoramic views of green trees, red roofs, and the blue sea beyond until the sun falls into the waters and the velvety black of night reduces visibility. A private barbecue will encourage family pool parties with the main dishes being the catch of the day, caught by you in earlier fishing expeditions. The arched patio cover frames those views, with the covered portion, and the exterior furnishings underneath provide a shaded spot to nap on a sunny afternoon and your dreams of paradise will pale in comparison to the reality!
Luxury and Serenity
When you can finally tear yourself away from the views outside, (never fear, generous windows in nearly every room ensure you never have to venture far from the vistas that have burrowed their way into your soul!) the interior of Casa Solara Family will stun you with its charm and comfort. Tile floors feel cool beneath bare feet, leading the way to a living room furnished with the softest of sofas and the most modern of televisions. Offering large screens and crystal-clear pictures, these state-of-the-art marvels are nice to have around, but quite frankly, they may lose out to the views that can be found in the space instead! Coffered ceilings, iron scrollwork and wood bannisters, and more arched windows finish up the picture of the most comfortable living room space in Costa Rica! Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home add a touch of elegance to the grand vistas that surround the home and can be found in the dining room, a space built to be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Play board games on a rainy evening, enjoy a freshly prepared feast every night of your stay, or simply sit in silence, drinking in the views of the pool, the bay, and the sea beyond. The kitchen is a luxurious space, offering more of those expansive views, an especially large footprint, and professional style appliances that add style and purpose to the room.
The final part of this tour of beauty takes us to the bedrooms of Casa Solara Family, with each room providing a tranquil magic that will ensure your dreams will be sweet ones. Premium beds anchor these rooms, views are framed in large windows that offer curtains that can be drawn shut against the Costa Rican sun on mornings you just want a little extra sleep. Private entrances to balconies overlooking the village, seating areas where coffee can be enjoyed on quiet mornings, and en suite baths that are sumptuous and luxurious and equipped with updated fixtures, soaking tubs, and soft and fluffy towels are just more extras that we consider standard in this stunning home. Contact us today to reserve Casa Solara!
If you have visited Costa Rica prior, you probably have some very definite ideas on what you want to do and how you want to spend your vacation moments, but for those who are visiting for the first time, the opposite can be true.

Best Tours In Costa Rica
Starting with a reminder that even though these are adventures that may begin on land, at some point during any experience, the sea will become a part as well! Even our ATV Tours, lasting between 2 to 5 hours, will take you to waterfalls and beaches as you also explore remote villages where time never seems to change their lifestyles and rainforests filled with wild animals and luxe canopies of green. Offering a beautiful adventure for seasoned or novice ATV Riders, these adventure tours begin at $70 per person for a 2-hour ride through paradise, increasing in cost per hour.
For those who like their land adventures with a little less horsepower, taking a horseback ride through the rainforest and farmland of a naturally beautiful preserve may make your vacation absolutely perfect! Our Horseback Riding- Jungle Spa experience may just change your life, offering a spring fed waterfall at its epicenter, with spa volcanic spa mud that will refresh your body and spirit! This adventure costs $100 per person.
There are two park adventures you can partake in during your getaway to Costa Rica, both offering the opportunity to experience the rainforest at its best, swimming in crystal clear waters, and possible encounters with wildlife, including 3 species of monkeys, 400 species of birds, and quite possibly visits from shy and slightly lethargic sloths. Manuel Antonio National Park ($99 per person) and Carara National Park ($78 per person) are destined to bring you photo opportunities producing frame-worthy photographs and create memories you will tuck away in your heart forever.
Water Journeys and Activities
As you can imagine, the opportunities to explore the water are plentiful in Costa Rica, and we at Stay in Costa Rica offer a plethora of water related tours! Explore ancient mangroves with our Isla Damas Mangrove Tour, take a boat ride on the wild side with a River Rafting Tour down the Naranjo, El Chorro, or Savagre Rivers, and kayak or canoe with a guided tour that includes all the equipment, water, and fresh fruits you need! Surfing Lessons are provided allowing thrill seekers to hang ten with the best of them.
And adventurers of all kinds may want to test their balancing skills with a SUP or Kayak tour and those who like to feel like they are flying on the water may prefer the sailing classes we offer, picking up a new skill or maybe they will want to take part in our Sailing Catamaran Cruise. This last tour takes participants to an uninhabited beach where they can play, relax, or snorkel, enjoying lunch and an open beach bar, ending with a sunset sail that will bring you back to the comforts of your vacation sanctuary!
Our Tortuga Island Catamaran Tour is another option, especially for those who just don’t have it in their DNA to sit still for long, offering the chance to ride the banana boats, explore the underwater life while snorkeling or swimming, or hike along island trails where the beauty of nature fails to excite.
We’ve explored land and sea and all that is left is to look to the skies! Flying through the trees attached to a zipline is one of our favorite ways to see the area and our Canopy Zipline will show you the region from a new point of view! Our Waterfall Tours offer land, sea, and sky adventures as you stand behind the falls, swim underneath their spray, or simply stand at the top watching the world around you.
Although your feet will remain firmly planted on the wooden planks of the hanging bridges or the mossy trails that lead through the rainforest, the Monteverde Cloud Forest tour will take your breath away as you explore nature from new angles. Rainforest Adventures take travelers on an aerial tour of the transitional forest, including ziplining, climbing waterfalls, and the opportunities to learn about the creatures who make their home in the rainforest. Also offering the Poas Volcano Day Tour and the Hot Springs and Arenal Volcano Tour, the skies will bring you adventures you never knew your soul needed.
But Wait, There’s More!
We definitely do not subscribe to the “less is more” life theory, and our exploration of tours continues with a thrilling adventure of the most coldblooded kind. Our Crocodile Tour takes visitor downstream on the Tarcoles Rivers, bringing them through the mangroves and to the spots where the coldblooded reptiles like to warm themselves on sunny days!
And finally, at the end of the day, when you may be tired of exploring the landscape you can take your adventures indoors for a little local flavor, taking one of our Cooking Classes that will teach you how to eat like a Costa Rican! Every adventure we offer promises excitement and the chance to reach new horizons, but your favorite adventures may be the comfortable ones that involve coming home to our Stay in Costa Rica sanctuaries!

Taking time to unwind, relax, and enjoy the best Costa Rica has to offer is always a good idea. If you happen to be an angling enthusiast heading this way, setting your sights on time well-spent at Los Suenos Marina is sure to inspire. This prime fishing destination is one of the country’s top choices among those who love to cast a line with good reason. The following are just a few of the many reasons why you’ll want to be sure to spend as much time as possible fishing in Costa Rica.
The Best Places To Go Fishing in Costa Rica
When it comes to options, luxury, and easy access to the water, the Los Suenos Resort Marina has everything anglers could want and then more! The Los Suenos Marina is government-sanctioned and hosts upward of 200 wet slips as well as 100 dry slips on-site. Anglers will also enjoy seamless access to helpful full-time staff, a fuel dock, and dry storage spaces that can easily accommodate vessels up to 35 feet long. Wet slips here typically range from 30 to 180 feet. The marina plays host to vessels of all types from yachts to luxury sport fishing boats. The full-service approach to customer and vessel care at the marina is unsurpassed and its location near the lush and fertile fishing grounds of the Pacific Coast makes it a top destination for fishing enthusiasts from across the map.
Many anglers head to the Los Suenos Marina to take advantage of a picture-perfect departure point for fishing tours, sport fishing excursions, and water sports alike. For a tranquil, customized, and exciting day on the water, guests can always take advantage of the small fishing charters that leave from the marina practically daily! These charters can accommodate around 3 to 5 people at a time and include a knowledgeable captain, fishing gear, and even beverages and lunch options onboard. There are also opportunities for anglers to get out and participate in deep-sea excursions either independently or as part of a chartered fishing experience. Making the Los Suenos Marina even more convenient is the fact that fishing licenses can be purchased right on-site to ensure anglers are always in compliance with fishing regulations. A fishing license purchased at the marina is typically valid for a month or a year depending on the type purchased.
What You Can Catch Around the Marina
It’s fair to say that many anglers head to Los Suenos Marina to join up with charters that are focused on reeling in Billfish. In fact, Los Suenos has earned the title of Billfish Capital of the World with good reason! The combination of calm waters and stunning weather brings Billfish in abundance which means a notoriously lucrative haul for anglers. Overall, Costa Rica is a haven of opportunity for sport fishing thanks to the variety of species that thrive within the surrounding waters, and Los Suenos Marina is no exception to that rule. It’s possible for those looking forward to casting a line in this area to successfully find marlin, red snapper, yellow fin tuna, grouper, wahoo, dorado, rainbow runner, and sailfish alike. High offshore sportfishing season in this area is often referred to as Green Season and occurs towards the end of May and runs through July. It’s a time of year when anglers who set their sights on Los Suenos Marina can count on finding plenty of Mahi Mahi biting! If you reel in a Yellow Fin during Green Season around the marina, you’re likely to find you’ll be pulling in catches that range from 40 to 80 pounds each. During this time of year, trolling early in the morning out of the marina is an idyllic approach for those who are looking to reel in tripletails, runners, jacks, and bonitos too.
Easy Access Included
No matter when you have time to enjoy a well-deserved getaway to Costa Rica, Los Suenos Marina is easy to access thanks to its proximity to the country’s major airports. Located in Herradura Beach on the central Pacific Coast, the marina enjoys a place just 10 minutes from Jaco and no more than an hour-and-15-minute drive from Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). This is the airport that serves the most international flights in and out of Costa Rica daily. Those who fly into SJO will travel 5 miles west and take the exit for Orotina and Jaco. Next, make your way to Highway 27 towards Caldera and follow it for around 17 miles. You’ll exit at Jaco and drive for 21 miles to Herradura until you see signs for Herradura Road leading to Los Suenos.

The large, 3,200 square foot homes are ideal for those who want to spare no expense and have a big group of family or friends on this holiday. You can relax in the attached bathrooms with a jacuzzi and shower.
Open the French doors to the covered terraces with plush seating. Sit at the tile countertops to do some remote work. Admire the vaulted ceilings and the adjoining dining area for sitting and having a nice dinner. The possibilities are endless! We recommend booking the Bella Vista 3D for a small group, Bella Vista 4B for those who want an ocean view, or the Bella Vista 4E for a family getaway.
Lastly, the Monteceielo presidential residences are the newest on the market. We love these properties for groups who want a modern place to stay during their excursion to the beautiful country of Costa Rica. These modern residences feature 2,390 square feet of living space with a master bedroom, second bedroom, great room, and far-reaching views of the nearby Pacific Ocean and Herradura Island. You can even access the common area swimming pools to cool off in the morning or meet your neighbors!

We guarantee that you and your friends or family will never want to leave this breathtaking house that features far-reaching views over the bright blue waves, tons of common space, and sun decks.

There is so much to do and see in Costa Rica, especially if you head here during the late summer months. Not only can you avoid crowds and attend annual events that only occur during September, but you can still soak in the bright sunshine and warm weather before it turns chilly. Check out these fun Labor Day events in Costa Rica, things to do, and places to see in this breathtaking coastal area over September.
Spend Labor Day 2023 in Costa Rica
One of the most exciting and fun things to do in Costa Rica is go ziplining high above the ground. We recommend heading to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, featuring over three kilometers of cables that are more than 130 meters above the ground! Cruise along the zip lines, with the longest one spanning over 770 meters, to feel the breeze in your face and the adrenaline coursing through your veins. You can also check out the Arenal Volcano National Park for ziplining to the coast through the treetops, mountainsides, and canyons.
Another fun area to check out for ziplining is Guanacaste, the home base for Diamante Eco Adventure Park, which takes you through the longest dual zipline for best friends and couples to soar high above the ground side by side. Talk about romance!
Are you a huge fan of hiking? If so, we recommend going volcanic hiking in Costa Rica to see one of the 67 volcanoes for an easy stroll, moderate hike, or challenging peak climb. Head to Irazu Volcano to see two craters in an active volcano and enjoy this family-friendly hike. If you want a slightly harder climb, the Arenal Volcano in the national park offers numerous hiking trails, old lava, and bright green forests. For those who want something more challenging, take a harder hike in the national park during the winter season!
Test Your Limits with Hiking
If you just can’t get enough of exploring on foot, then hiking is THE best way to spend your Labor Day weekend in Costa Rica! Head to Manuel Antonio National Park to check out monkeys, flora, fauna, and incredible views in the nearby area. This 1-hour hike is great for older adults or those with children. If you want something tougher, then head to the Monteverde Cloud Forest to take on 13 kilometers of trails along suspended bridges high above the trees. We also recommend the Cerro Chirripo in Costa Rica to summit the 3,800+ mountains and soak in amazing views! However, make sure you make your reservation for Cerro Chirripo a few weeks beforehand as the refuge you can stay in overnight has limited space.
For true adrenaline junkies, whitewater rafting is great for those with kids or those who want to tackle raging rapids! If you have young kids with you on the trip, then we recommend going on the Penas Blancas River in Arenal for an easy and gentle trip. If you want something more challenging, the Naranjo River in Manuel Antonio offers a nice mixture of floating and tackling rapids. For true athletes, the Pacuare River leaves no stone unturned when it comes to rafting, whitewater rapids, forests, and waterfall views!
Last but not least, snorkeling is a fun and easy way for you to see marine life under the bright blue water and get a different viewpoint of the lush country of Costa Rica. Scuba divers can see between 20 and 100 feet below the surface. We recommend going to Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge to see the bright coral reef, bays, and inlets. Another easy spot for beginner swimmers includes Cahuita National Park to see the largest coral reefs or Cocos Island to see marine wildlife. If you want something a bit extra, Cano Island is great for unique diving sites.

As soon as you see the outside of the house, you will be blown away by the large pool. This infinity pool is great for lounging around at night with a glass of wine, teaching our kids the basics of freestyle, and chilling out after a long and hard hike in the nearby forest. Plus, at night, you can soak in the warm hot tub to ease your aching muscles from all of the activity over the past few days.
If you would rather spend your free afternoon reading a book and relaxing instead of doing any strenuous activity, lie down on one of the plush lounge chairs with a book and listen to the sounds of the rainforest out of your back door. You can also sit around one of the outdoor tables with your friends to play a game of cards, enjoy happy hour drinks, or chat about plans for the upcoming trip.
Lastly, we absolutely love the covered outdoor seating area that is ideal for a rare rain spell or a super hot and humid day. We recommend sitting at the long outdoor dining table and enjoying an alfresco meal as the ceiling fan cools you off.
Kitchen and Dining Area
Another great area that is ideal for entertaining your guests is the kitchen and in area. We love sitting at one of the numerous plush and cozy bar chairs and eating appetizers with our friends as we sip on a glass of wine.
