Thinking about a Costa Rica honeymoon? Well, you’ve come to the right spot. Costa Rica is the quintessential paradise escape that will make you fall in love with your partner all over again.
Accommodations in Costa Rica run the gamut from simple cabins on the beach to five star luxury resorts, so if you want your honeymoon in Costa Rica to be rustic and natural or room service and spa treatments, you can have it.
A Costa Rica honeymoon can be tailored to be exciting or relaxing, so it’s really just a matter of choice.
Any beach lover would instantly fall in love with the beaches of the Nicoya Peninsula. From calm tranquil waters, to perfect surfing waves, the beaches here offer the perfect backdrop for a romantic Costa Rica honeymoon.
You can choose to take a room at a luxurious resort for a week or two, or rent a 4x4 and explore the coast searching for your own uninhabited stretch of beach, staying in a new town every night.
For the adventurous, head to Tamarindo and get yourselves some surf lessons. And depending on the season, you could even head up to Playa Grande 15 minutes to the north and watch nesting sea turtles.
How about beautiful cloud forests and dramatic volcanoes?
The beautiful cloud forests of Monteverde provide a lush, emerald green backdrop with the chance of seeing the gorgeous and reclusive quetzal bird. You can also spike your adrenalin by going on some of the numerous zip lines and canopy tours available here.
La Fortuna is a cute town situated next to the dramatic cone of the Arenal Volcano. Here you can relax at one of the luxurious hot springs or go on a night tour of the volcano, watching neon orange lava spew from the top of the cone. Both activities are a great way to spend time with your significant other on your vacation getaway.
Check out the afro-Caribbean vibe in Puerto Viejo, and dance the night away to Reggae music. Or look for manatees in the maze-like canals of Tortuguero Park on kayaks. Or go scuba diving together in Playas del Coco. Or go whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River. Or…well, I guess I could go on forever. (Click here for more ideas!)
