A Costa Rican sloth.

From plush jungle eco-lodges to kid-friendly beachside jungle tents, Costa Rica has plenty of family-friendly accommodation pretty much anywhere that tourists go. Most mid-range and top-end hotels offer discounts for under-12s sharing a parent’s room; top-end hotels usually have kids’ activities too. See our feature Green Places to Stay with Kids in Latin America.

If you're passing through the capital San José, we recommend the Hampton Inn & Suites. For organised family adventure holidays in Costa Rica, click on the Best Organised Trips tab above.
