Located only 90 minutes west of San Jose, the gorgeous coast and quiet vibe of Herradura make it one of the best areas for a family vacation. Kid-friendly activities include tours to secluded waterfalls and swimming holes, sliding down natural waterslides, spotting monkeys and catamaran cruises to picnic on private beaches. Dominating the kid-friendly hotel scene in Herradura is Los Suenos Marriott Resort, which has an incredible range of condominium-style accommodations to choose from and tons of amenities to keep the whole family happy.

"We had an amazing time! You nailed it on the activities and lodgings. All the tour/activities were great! All the drivers were professional, friendly, courteous, safe, knowledgeable about the areas we were traveling through, and showed us things along the way. Thank you so much for arranging this fantastic family dream vacation for us!"

–Ting Family Trip

"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"

–Beck Family Trip
