Are you thinking about changing up your normal family Spring Break routine? Costa Rica is perfect for those seeking an alternative to the standard spring break destinations. No matter your age or preferences, Costa Rica is a perfect setting for your Spring Break 2019 vacation. An amazing diversity of options can be found from gorgeous sand beaches to mountains and jungles. Here are a few of our favorite Costa Rica Spring Break destinations.


One of our favorite places in all of Costa Rica is Playa Tamarindo in the province of Guanacaste. Tamarindo is typically hot and dry during the spring season and is a perfect place to take in the Pacific Ocean and the activities it offers. Surfing is the main attraction and Tamarindo is a great place to learn how to ride the waves.  Additional water sports include paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and sport fishing.  Tamarindo also has a vibrant nightlife to experience after your long day on the beach.  You’ll be amazed by one of the spectacular sunsets that Tamarindo provides.

Playa Flamingo

Playa Flamingo is an additional option that has magnificent beaches and is located north of Tamarindo.  This area is more relaxed if one wants to escape the Spring Break bustle.

Manual Antonio

Manuel Antonio truly is unique with the feeling of being “One with Nature”.
You’ll feel that the moment you step outside of your vacation villa, cute monkeys and spectacular birds will greet you from every corner of the jungle. One of the most amazing parks in Costa Rica, Manual Antonio National Park, abounds with exotic birds and animals. The park is modest in size but packs a substantial amount of biodiversity with many animal species to see.

When you’re not enjoying the park, Manuel Antonio has numerous beach options to explore.  The most popular is Playa Manual Antonio, with its silky white sand and beautiful coral reef, a great beach for enjoying your day swimming or snorkeling.
