Honeymooning in Costa Rica
Newlyweds want to make their honeymoon as memorable as their wedding. Costa Rica has been one of the top honeymoon destinations for years. It has nice, pristine beaches and beautiful rainforests that the newlyweds can enjoy exploring together. Here are some of the things couples can do while honeymooning in Costa Rica:
1. Manuel Antonio, Central Pacific Coast
Just a 2-hour drive away from the capital city of San Jose, this is where you will find the famous Manuel Antonio National Park. It is a haven for couples who love adventure. You can experience whitewater rafting, kayaking, para-sailing, surfing, waterfall rappelling, zip lines, and even horseback riding. Wildlife also abounds in the area. Yes, this place is perfect for couples who are fond of animals.
2. Arenal Volcano National Park
The park has many attractive spots including one of the most active volcanoes in the whole world, the Arenal Volcano. You can relax at luxury resorts or spend a romantic day at the steamy hot springs. You can roam around the park’s exotic rainforest and get rejuvenated at one of their spas at the end of the day.
3. Tamarindo Beach, Guanacaste
Tamarindo is known worldwide for its white sand beach. Make your sweetheart’s romantic dream come true by watching the sensational sunset together. Taking a dip during the night is also a very romantic idea. The beach’s warm Pacific waters and your sweetheart’s embrace will make it impossible for you to feel cold.
4. Nicoya Peninsula
There could never be anything more romantic than spending your honeymoon at small, private, isolated hotels overlooking breathtaking beaches. You can show each other your affection without worrying about the crowd as there will be less tourists than other places in Costa Rica. You can also have fun watching Leatherback and Hawksbill sea turtles or have a romantic dinner at their garden and restaurant.
5. Papagayo Gulf
Just 30 minutes away from the Liberia International Airport, you can find an array of luxurious hotels and resorts. This includes the Four Seasons Resort, the RIU Guanacaste, the Occidental Grand Papagayo, and the Hilton Papagayo. Because of its close proximity, most tourists choose to stay at Papagayo Gulf and book day tours to other tourist spots in Costa Rica. The hotels offer tour packages to Arenal Volcano, Monteverde, and Rincon de la Vieja Volcano.
6. Tortuguero Village and Jungle Canals
You can experience the romantic City of Venice while you are at the Tortuguero Village and Jungle Canals. Aptly called Costa Rica’s Venice, Tortuguero has a colorful village and relaxing boat rides reminiscent of the romantic Venice gondola rides. You can also see some wildlife at the canals including sloths, jaguars, monkeys, caimans, parrots, and turtles.
7. Tabacon Grand Spa and Hot Springs
If your idea of the perfect honeymoon includes five star accommodations and luxury spas, you should opt for the Tabacon Grand Spa and Hot Springs. They have a Luxury Honeymoon Package which includes three nights’ accommodation. The package also includes welcome cocktails and daily breakfast. The resort has a breathtaking view with its lagoons and arched bridges. You and your honey can share a bowl of chocolate-covered strawberries while enjoying a 30-minute Jacuzzi bath.
8. Canopy Tour
Do not leave Costa Rica without trying the Canopy Tour. Especially if you think dangling from a harness and soaring high through the jungle treetops will give you and your partner a different kind of high.
9. National Theater Of Costa Rica
If your partner is into architecture, art, design, or theater, the best way to surprise him is to arrange a tour of the National theater of Costa Rica. It is a source of great pride for the locals because of its rich history and breathtaking architecture. There is a nice restaurant in the lobby where you two can have a romantic brunch together. It is extra fun when you visit the place on the second Sunday of March when the International Festival of the Arts is held.
10. Fiestas del Palmares
What screams Cost Rica more than rodeos? Join the locals during the Fiestas del Palmares so you can watch it live. The festival is also fun if both of you are fond of music and fireworks display. Experiencing this together will be a very enjoyable way to bond as a couple.
