Mom, dad, and the two brothers are gradually getting up, and getting their balance too. Your professional instructor is encouraging and genuinely excited for you all. By the end of the morning, you will all be able to pop up capably and feel a great sense of accomplishment.

Every morning can be like this while on vacation in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Opportunities for adventure abound for the active family. This can truly be a healthy, invigorating, family bonding vacation.

Costa Rica's tourism infrastructure is well-developed, making it easy to get around, and safe to travel.

Costa Rica is a small country with various micro-climates, mountain zones, beautiful beach areas, tropical rain forests, deserts, volcanoes, and remarkable national parks, all within six hours of the capital. Santa Teresa, at the southern tip of Nicoya Peninsula, is a wonderful place where you can do it all.

Santa Teresa, on the Pacific coast, boasts award-winning beaches, with jungle that comes straight down from the hills all the way to the beach. There are a ton of exciting activities in Santa Teresa Costa Rica that await the adventurous family. Canopy tours, snorkeling, fishing, horseback riding, yoga, kayaking, boogie boarding, and surfing will keep the family busy for a week or more.
