Tween Eco-Travel to Costa Rica
Tweens can be the pickiest of family travelers, but are no match for the allure of Costa Rica’s rainforests, beaches and adventure opportunities. From the daily wildlife sightings and chilled atmosphere of Parador Resort & Spa, to the thrills of zip lining and white water rafting, tweens will be utterly entertained – and perhaps awed – by the capital of green, Costa Rica.
Parador Resort & Spa in Punta Quepos is a fiercely eco-friendly property on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast. Parents need look no further for a spot both they and their tweens will love. The luxury resort offers a range of tween-friendly amenities plus sustainability programs, including on-site compost plant, to teach about conservation in action. Located minutes from famed Manuel Antonio National Park. www.hotelparador.com
Families (or just the tweens) can explore Manuel Antonio’s jungles, swamps and beaches on naturalist guide-led hikes, boat tours and horseback riding. White sand beaches stretch for miles along the coastline for surfing, sunning, kayaking and parasailing. Complimentary facilities at Parador Resort & Spa include tennis court, gym, miniature golf, pool table, nature trails and shuttle service to the adjoining beaches. Three pools, four restaurants, the Pacifica Spa and free wi-fi help keep the tween set entertained for their whole stay.
