Barva-Jungle-webUltimate Excursions Travel has selected the top three destinations for family travel  in the New Year, and Costa Rica is among the choices for 2016.

1 – The Atlantis Paradise Resort in the Bahamas calls out to parents and children with attractions and adventures designed to impress. Like its name suggests, the Atlantis Paradise Resort is one of the largest water-themed attractions in the world offering water slides, river rides, rock climbing and marine habitat unparalleled in the industry. Atlantis Kids Adventures is a supervised program where kids can choose from hundreds of activities and adventures. Parents can hit the Island Casinos or golf courses while the kids play.

2 – The jungles and rainforests of Costa Rica are a great choice for a family adventure. Costa Rica offers a huge diversity of family friendly activities and events. Visit one of the interactive museums, walk across a suspension bridge or take a hike through one of the national parks. Families can enjoy relaxing by one of the many beaches at Playa Cocles or Playas del Coco, scuba dive or snorkel in the Caribbean, filled with abundant sea life. Mountain biking, horseback riding, rafting, kayaking and tours in the Monterverde cloud forest await families and make Costa Rica a favorite vacation destination. A preferred time to visit Costa Rica is between June and September when the green sea turtles are nesting.

3 – Rancho de los Caballeros in Arizona is a dude ranch with the real feel of the old west. The children’s club starts bright and early with hiking, crafts, swimming and a ride around the stables. Parents can choose between soothing hot stone massages, golf, tours of the ranch by ATV’s or lounging by the pool. Families meet up for lunch and then hit the trails by horseback followed by a dip in the pool before dinner, where parents can enjoy a delicious meal while the kids rejoin their friends for more authentic western adventures. At night, families round out the day as they gather around the campfire and share their adventures.
