travel family trips costa rica

The place: Hilton Papagayo Resort, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

The cost: $263 a night for double occupancy; $49 for kids 4 and up

If your family can't agree on much, try Costa Rica, where you can spend your day bird watching, ziplining, or just relaxing on the beach.

The Hilton offers four different restaurants, plus a kids' club and free daily activities like dance lessons and beach volleyball. Visit right after school gets out and save.

Yes, summer is technically the rainy season, but that typically means just afternoon showers, says agent Irene Edwards of GreenSpot Travel.

The savings: 20% if you go in June rather than the March high season
