Costa Rica Family Holiday: Beach Cabins & House in the Sky

A relaxed cabin on the Caribbean; a House in the Sky above the hills; a Pacific hangout with miles of empty beach. Three amazing houses, one incredible trip.

From the reggae bars and coral reefs of the Caribbean, travel into the hills for activities aplenty and coffee at source, before settling into a little slice of paradise on the Pacific. With others to do the cooking, us to guide and support you and our local partners to show you around, you have all you could ever wish for to enjoy our beloved Costa Rica.

Day 5 - Hike and snorkel in Cahuita National Park

One thing we'd love you to do here is to hike along the pretty beaches and wildlife-rich forests of Cahuita, taking a boat ride back from the headland to snorkel at the coral reef if conditions allow.
