Costa Rica Popular Destination for Families

July 7, 2006

Costa Rica is one of the most popular family vacation spots in the world, according to a recent poll.

San José ranked sixth in an online survey of 279 American Express Travel Agents asked to cite popular international tour locations for families, the Associated Press reported recently.

The cities of London, Rome, Paris and Cancun, and the country of Italy ranked ahead of San José. Nassau in the Bahamas, the Riviera Maya in Mexico, Venice and Florence rounded out the top 10.

Tourism is one of the most important industries in Costa Rica, which is popular for its rain forests, beautiful beaches and a relaxed atmosphere often described with the catch phrase “pura vida.”

Active vacations and international family vacations are among the top trends reported by the travel agents, as are increased mother-daughter getaways. They also reported more grandparents traveling with their grandchildren and adults traveling with their parents.
