 Costa Rica Offers Budget Friendly, Family Friendly Travel Options

Published 04/08/2011

(San José, Costa Rica) – Budget-minded and adventure-seeking travellers who don’t mind a little rain are clicking their gumboot heels this month as a collection of award winning Central American ecolodges prepare to launch into “Green Season.”

The nickname comes from the increase in precipitation that Central America experiences from May through October – while regional rainforests return to their signature lush, green colour, visitors benefit by getting to keep a few more greenbacks in their wallets.

During Green Season, discounted rates and packages can be had at any of the six Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality-managed resorts, hotels and ecolodges in Costa Rica or Nicaragua: Latitude 10 Beach Resort, Lapa Rios Ecolodge, Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn, Arenas Del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort, The Harmony Hotel and  Jicaro Island Ecolodge. The high-end hotels, known around the world for their uber-sustainable and Earth-saving ways, are perfect for that dream family vacation and offer a number of kid-friendly activities, like white water rafting, nature hikes, ziplining adventures and snorkelling escapades.

“It’s a great time to visit Central America,” said Hans Pfister, CEO and principle of Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality. “Temperatures remain high and it hardly ever rains the whole day through. Plus, there’s great surfing, outrageous wildlife-viewing opportunities and fewer guests at the resorts. And with summer vacation right around the corner, now’s the time for families to take advantage of these great Green Season rates. For the same price, where would you rather take your kids: Costa Rica or Disneyland ?”

As an added bonus during Green Season, Costa Rica ’s domestic airline, Nature Air, is offering free round trip tickets for two children accompanying two adults on flights within the country from May 1 through Dec. 15, 2011 (restrictions may apply).

Discounted hotel rates are in effect at each of the sustainable hotels from May 1 through Oct. 31, 2011. In addition, a number of other special promos are available to make the family vacation just a little bit easier on the wallet:

Stay for five nights and pay for only four: this enticing offer is available from April 25 through Aug. 25, 2011 at Latitude 10 Beach Resort, Lapa Rios Ecolodge and The Harmony Hotel; and from April 25 through June. 30, 2011 at Arenas Del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort.

Stay for three nights and pay for only two: this offer is available from April 25 through Aug. 25, 2011 at Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn and Jicaro Island Ecolodge; and from Aug. 26 though Nov. 20, 2011 at Latitude 10 Beach Resort, Lapa Rios Ecolodge, Arenas Del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort and The Harmony Hotel.

Stay for two nights and pay for only one: from Aug. 26 through Nov. 20, 2011, stay at Jicaro Island Ecolodge or Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn and take advantage of this whale of a deal.

Kids stay and eat for free: looking for an eye-opening family vay-cay? This offer is available June 15 through Sept. 15, 2011 at Lapa Rios Ecolodge, Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn, Arenas Del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort and The Harmony Hotel.
