Traveling with children to Costa Rica can be quite an adventure. With the right combination of things to do and good accommodations however, it can make for a wonderfully unique, nature-rich trip. I went with another family for two weeks. Total count: 5 children! Our first stop was in Palo Seco, Parrita, close to the Central Valley! The location we settled into was 2 hours from the airport and well off the beaten path. I highly suggest at least two GPS maps!
