A few years ago I made a vow. A vow to my family that we would experience more of the world around us. We are lucky to be surrounded by breathtaking beauty here in Colorado, but there is so much more to see in our country and beyond.
In the past couple of years, I have kept my promise. We have taken family trips to New Mexico, Florida (twice), and South Dakota as well as visiting national parks right here at home. We will also be going back to New England for a visit this summer. But now it’s time to expand our horizons further. The Husband and I have begun to discuss taking a family vacation to somewhere tropical. Right now I have my sights set on a Costa Rica family vacation.
Why Costa Rica?
You may wonder why Costa Rica when we could go to Hawaii or the Bahamas. Those places are great, I’m sure, but Costa Rica has it all in my book. Gorgeous beaches, waterfalls, volcanoes, and tropical jungles. Plus, it’s a bit more off the beaten path than some other tropical locations. I can’t think of anything more perfect than a relaxing vacation on my terms as opposed to sitting on a crowded beach.
Visiting the rainforest and seeing parrots, brightly colored frogs, and sloths in their natural habitat are just some of the things I would love for my children to experience. Stuff is discarded in a matter of months, but experiences are forever.

Traveling with kids
Some people may think that it’s hard to travel with younger kids so they put it off until the kids are older. This is not true. I have always traveled with my kids and they have both handled it like rock stars. My youngest took his first big road trip at 20 months from Connecticut to Colorado and has been road tripping and flying ever since.
Traveling with kids is invaluable. They get to experience new things beyond their own little microcosm and see different cultures, even within their own country. They will learn history, geography, and see new architecture. Traveling also gets them away from the XBox and iPad and out into the fresh air. So don’t put it off. Turn your little ones into adventurers.
Go ahead. Take your family on that once in a lifetime adventure. If Costa Rica isn’t on your must-see list, Anywhere can help you plan a dream vacation to many other amazing locations. Even more exotic destinations are coming soon: Vietnam, Bali, Myanmar, Tanzania, and Chile.
