When I think about my ideal family vacation, you can bet crowded beaches, a muddy ocean and fast food are nowhere on my list. But that’s often what many families are relegated to given some of the stateside options; you end up needing a vacation to recover from your vacation.
So when my husband and I were invited to visit Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo with several other bloggers, I was beyond excited. When every single person I spoke to couldn’t stop gushing about their own Costa Rica vacation, I knew I was in for a treat. But add in the reputation of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, and I knew it would be a trip of a lifetime.
Of course, a couple’s trip can be quite different from one with the entire family. But given my experience at Four Seasons Costa Rica with my husband, I can wholeheartedly say that I can’t wait to bring my family back. Read my review on Cool Mom Picks to see why.
This summer (May 28 to Sept. 3), the resort is offering a special Camp Papagayo for kids. On the fun roster: learning Spanish, touring volcanoes and national parks, spotting monkeys and exotic birds, volunteering, surfing and ziplining through the tropical forest. All that, while mom and dad take on a complimentary cooking class featuring local cuisine, try a bamboo massage, or play tennis (five courts, including a brand new grass one) or golf on the award-winning golf course, a Certified Audubon Sanctuary.
