Travel with Children
The entire Quepos and Manuel Antonio area is one of Costa Rica’s leading family-friendly destinations. With beaches and rainforest in close proximity – not to mention a healthy dose of charismatic wildlife – the region can enchant young minds regardless of their attention spans.
Most families with children congregate in the hotels and resorts lining the Quepos–Manuel Antonio Rd, but this is more due to accommodations density than other factors. In fact, the appeal of Quepos for children is that there is plenty to explore beyond the hotel walls, which can give parents a bit of fresh air and breathing room.
All in all, the town’s excellent restaurant scene is kid-friendly, and the local Ticos are very welcoming to little ones. And finally, while you’re not exactly on the beach or up in the forest, it’s just a short and uneventful ride out to Manuel Antonio if the kids need an idyllic day on the beach.
