- Hotel Mono AzulApdo 297 Quepos, Costa Rica 6350recommended Hotel Mono AzulIf I could keep this place a personal secret, I would. However, that wouldn't be fair to the charming Braman family who make this quiet retreat a home away home. Tucked into one of the most beautiful ... read more(and climatically comfortable) rainforests in the world, the "Blue Monkey" is a hidden oasis with luxurious comforts. I could spend an entire trip to Costa Rica simply lounging around their jungle-rimmed swimming pools and dining in their open-air restaurant - brimming with quality Tico (local) and American fare. However, this hotel is too ideally located to simply waste away the hours in a private paradise. It's in walking distance from the shops and bars of downtown Quepos, and just a few minutes drive to some of the most spectacular beaches and wilderness areas in Costa Rica. It's also a bargain for your budget, making it an ideal base of operations for exploring Costa Rica's central Pacific coast.Arlo Hemphill
Costa Rica is a safe, easy to travel in country and I feel you'll find many of the "hot spots" as good for kids. I highly recommend the Manuel Antonio area as a place for Costa Rica first timers. The area has a little bit of everything most people come to Costa Rica for - rainforests, beautiful beaches, exotic wildlife, great restaurants, adventure excursions - you name it. The Mono Azul is a very nice little boutique hotel hidden away in the tropical vegetation. There's a couple of secluded pools for the kids, an in-house restaurant for the family, and a bar area for mom and dad!

I have not been with kids, but know the lay of the land pretty well. Los Suenos is one of the nicer resorts on the Pacific side. It's a self-enclosed world with everything from golf courses to a marina, and a private beach. Lots of activities that cater to families.
