Ecotourism and Family Travel in Costa Rica
“Ecotourism is the heart of Costa Rica’s tourism sector,” says Alejandro Castro Alfaro, Director of Marketing for the Costa Rica Tourism Board. “The country takes pride in providing unique, safe and authentic experiences for visitors of all ages.”

After just a few hours in the country, this is abundantly clear. If you weren’t pre-sold on Costa Rica’s unique environmentally conscious tourism offering before you arrived, then you will certainly not remain indifferent to it once you’ve seen it firsthand.

The importance of sustainability in travel is no different when it comes to family travel in Costa Rica.
