Get Inspired: Green Family Vacation

Green Family Vacation

A sustainable luxury vacation to Costa Rica with kids of all ages at the Cayuga Collection hotels and eco resorts

A family vacation is an ideal way to reconnect, spend quality time together and create new memories. At the Cayuga Collection hotels and eco lodges, we want to help you create a unique family experience that is different from any other vacation you have enjoyed in the past. We offer all the fun, adventure, and comfort that families want most while elevating the experience to world-class standards in some of Costa Rica’s top destinations.

Most importantly, the experience will be guilt-free as our hotels and lodges are world leaders in sustainability. Take part in our vision for a more sustainable future, supporting local communities and the pristine natural environment of Costa Rica. We have seen that children of all ages appreciate this approach of offering a softer and more responsible way of tourism. Many kids later use their vacation experience to present school projects on environmental conservation, the rainforest or Costa Rican culture.

Our hotels, resorts and lodges offer a great variety of family-oriented activities ranging from guided rainforest hikes to zip-lining, surfing, horseback riding, kayaking and white water rafting. Pick and choose what best fits your interests and needs. Take a look at this sample family vacation itinerary.

*Please note that some of the Cayuga Collection Hotels are more apt for small children than others. While Kurà and Jicaro are adult-only, we recommend Lapa Rios for children age 6 and above. All other hotels receive children of all ages.

For children six years and older, Lapa Rios Eco Lodge near Corcovado National Park is a dream come true. No place offers more opportunities to see monkeys, sloths, toucans and many other rain forest animals.

Arenas del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort in Manuel Antonio is the perfect destination for an active family vacation. No other destination in Costa Rica offers such a wide variety of tours and adventures.

Balance out time on the beach with a traditional coffee plantation experience at Finca Rosa Blanca Inn, just 20 minutes from the San Jose International Airport. This can serve as the perfect base to explore tropical cloud forests and various volcanoes in the area.

Latitude 10 Resort in Santa Teresa is a very popular destination for multi-generational vacations due to the possibility of a “buy out” of the whole six room resort.

The Harmony Hotel in Nosara is a great destination for families with a variety of interests among family members. Between surf lessons, yoga, adventure tours and a great beach, there should be something for everyone.

Most visitors to Costa Rica spend a night or two in the capital city of San Jose. The Grano de Oro Hotel features one of the city’s best fine dining restaurants with a great kids menu.
