Why Large Villas Are the #1 Choice for Multi-Family Vacations

More than half of Costa Rica’s 3.1 million foreign visitors arrive from North America. Costa Rica is an excellent tourist destination since it is close to the United States and has plenty of fun activities for everyone in the family. 

Have you wanted to book a multi-family vacation and don’t know where to start? First, you must find a place that appeals to everyone, and we understand how challenging that can be since one family might want a beach day while the other wants to explore. 

Next, you need villas large enough to house everyone comfortably. It is helpful if you have a place with multiple services and personalized amenities that can take some of the stress off trip planning. 

Luckily, we have put together a complete guide on how you can find the perfect tropical vacation rental and why Costa Rica is a must-visit for any family. Keep reading on for more information!

Best Tropical Vacation Spots

If you are thinking of taking the entire family on vacation this upcoming year, a tropical vacation likely checks off something on the list for everyone, such as:

  • Beaches
  • Tours and excursions
  • Swimming
  • Warm weather

Finding tropical vacation spots is the more challenging aspect. To book the best tropical vacation for the whole family, you need somewhere safe with plenty of fun activities for every age. 

Central America holds some of the most world-renowned destinations with warm, sandy beaches and crystal blue waters. A few of the countries include mountainous terrains and densely jungled forests. The most popular tourist destinations in Central America include:

  • Costa Rica
  • Panama
  • Belize
  • Guatemala
  • Caribbean islands
  • And more

While places like Guatemala might appeal to young travelers looking for an adventure, there are a few priorities you must keep in mind when traveling with young ones or multiple families. 

Safety First

When considering international travel, safety is the number one priority for your family and friends. Central America attracts around 11 million visitors annually, but each country poses unique risks. Here are the top three safest countries to visit in Central America:

  1. Costa Rica
  2. Panama
  3. Nicaragua

Costa Rica is a hot spot for solo travelers, couples, and multi-families outings because it is surrounded by jungles and pristine beaches. You can spend one day lounging on an exquisite beach and the next day off-roading through muddy trails. 

Combined with lower crime rates and a friendly atmosphere, it is a top destination point for families. 

Places To Stay

Multi-family vacations (or large single family outings) have the unique problem of finding a large enough place to stay. Private beach homes in Costa Rica are a popular option compared to resorts or hotels for a few distinct reasons:

  • More privacy 
  • Better health and safety protocols (fewer residents mean less exposure to viruses)
  • Top-notch amenities
  • Personalized guest services 

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become more critical that you find places that house everyone while keeping people’s safety in mind. A private Costa Rica beachfront villa is the solution!

Luxury Amenities and Services

There are plenty of delicious places to eat in Manuel Antonio, meaning you won’t have a challenging time with picky eaters.

Are Costa Rica Beachfront Villas Worth It?

In one word: yes. Hotels and resorts are often overcrowded and understaffed, making it difficult to enjoy luxury amenities and services at the price they are asking for. A beachfront villa is an excellent choice since you receive personalized services with close access to safe and enjoyable activities. You will find personalized services such as a private gourmet chef, full-time maids, and a personal concierge.

Hotels are also cramped and often aren’t equipped with kitchens. At Vista Hermosa Estate, we can pick up groceries and items for you before you arrive and have everything set up to make easy meals at your place!

Start Planning Your Next Vacation

Private villas are a prime choice for multi-family vacations since they offer the utmost privacy without sacrificing luxury. Kids and teenagers will have plenty of space to run around and multi-room options and kitchens make it easy to plan out meals and put the toddlers down for naps.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country that is safe with a friendly and lively atmosphere. Vista Hermosa Estate makes planning your trip even more effortless. Are you ready to get started?
