Since parents have become more adventurous, destinations like Costa Rica are now popular for family travelers.
Young travelers tag along with their parents for adventure and beach during summertime in Manuel Antonio, from December to April.
Entire families block out one or two weeks for a trip to Costa Rica looking for quality time with their children and for memories to take back home.
What makes Manuel Antonio a really cool and unique family vacation spot?
More hotels and resorts, like the Si Como No, Escape Villas and Parador are offering baby-sitting services and creative, age-appropriate activities.
Children love zip-lining and crossing suspension bridges, they love seeing monkeys everywhere.
Most parents take them to see butterflies, at the Butterfly Garden within Si Como No Resort where they can learn about the lifecycle of nearly 1,000 species of butterflies.
Above all, families enjoy the visit to Manuel Antonio National Park with its set of extensive trails where monkeys, iguanas, toucans and sloths can be seen.
