Where else in the world besides Monteverde can you explore a cloud forest while on vacation? It’s what keeps families coming to this kid-friendly region of Costa Rica. The animal spotting opportunities here are some of the best in the world — all kinds of creatures, from jaguars to ocelots to quetzals, call this region home. Aspiring zoologists and devout animal lovers will enjoy the spectacular canopy walking trails that take you high into the trees. Choosing where to stay is easy; our favorite kid-friendly property here combines lovely service, an excellent onsite restaurant and a gorgeous garden.
