The magazine made the list based on the family-friendly activities, atmospheres, lodging and dining options that countries have, as well as expert recommendations and their readers' opinions. According to the publishing, “bringing your family Costa Rica's unspoiled rainforests can be the trip of a lifetime.”

But the real secret why Costa Rica is so popular between families is that the country has something for everybody. So, even when you are traveling with kids, you can have vacation packages full of fun for children and relaxation for parents.
