Available at all the beaches are a range of water sports and activities to keep the kids busy and beachside bars providing cocktails for the adults!
For The Adventurous: Jungle Safari in Costa Rica
Perfect for February half-term, the best time to visit Costa Rica is from December to April, during the dry season.
The country in South America offers a variety of activities for everyone, from the smallest to the tallest in the family. Particularly popular in Costa Rica is the awe-inspiring wildlife adventures that are guaranteed to take your breath away.
In the deep rainforest canopy, monkeys, sloths and macaws take pride of place, swinging overhead of the visitors while rainforest frogs and other miniature insects roam around the forest floor, to be spotted by the kids.
If you’re not an animal lover, maybe zip lining or river rafting is for you? Perfect for the older thrill seekers in the family, you can swing like monkeys over the rainforest at about 1,400 feet or paddle like seawater turtles down the Sarapiqui river.
For The City Breaks Lovers: Rome
Rome works well for families who only want a short break, but still need a holiday!
This romantic, ancient city is full to the brim with history, fantastic cuisine and stunning architectural beauty, which will make even the grumpiest children and teenagers happy!
Why not consider coordinating the trip with your children’s curriculum, with adventures to the Vatican or Colosseum that will help towards your child’s learning – and breaks for gelato and pizza as a treat for a day of sightseeing.
