Costa Rica

I recently traveled to Costa Rica with my husbands family.  This was a fantastic multi-generational trip where we got to spend quality time with the whole family.  For this once in a lifetime trip we decided to stay in a luxury villa instead of a traditional hotel.  This enabled grandparents, cousins, siblings, aunt and uncles to all stay under one (very luxurious) roof and meant that we could really enjoy every waking moment together.

I highly recommend villa rental for a Costa Rica vacation.  Costa Rica is typically a very active vacation that can be tailored to a variety of activity levels.  We spent our days zip-lining, white water rafting, hiking, and exploring wildlife in Manuel Antonio National Park.  After a long active day it was really nice to come back to our luxury villa and relax. 

Our villa, like most luxury villa rentals,  was staffed with a house mother who provided daily cleaning as well as a chef who prepared delicious meals, snacks and everything in between.  We awoke each day to an amazing breakfast - and when we returned from a long active day there were cocktails and snacks ready for us to enjoy.  This also gave us the option of just staying put in our villa some evenings .  While we did venture into town for dinner a few evenings --- after a particularly active and exhausting day zip-lining it was so nice to come back to our villa, take a hot shower, put on comfy clothes and enjoy an incredible chef prepared dinner together.

This was truly a vacation that everyone enjoyed and it was so nice to be able to experience it together as a family.
