Yay!! My country is beautiful!!!  I'm not honeymooning in Costa Rica though...I live there I want to see another place! :) But I definitely reccomend it.  We first planned for a local honeymoon and we were considering Monteverde (my favorite place) which has cozy log cabins and an awesome cloud forest.  I also like the resorts near Arenal volcano...really relaxing hot springs! 


Most people like to to go to Guanacaste (nort-pacific coast) for beautiful beach resorts. 


Where am I going? Mexico's Riviera Maya!!  :0)


There's a lot to see...enjoy!!

I thought it would be useful to add these links for Monteverde and Arenal:


http://www.monteverdeinfo.com/


http://www.arenal.net/


It has more info on lodging and things to do. Have fun!

You're sooo welcome, Ghana_Bride!  I'll try to post more links if I find any.  When we were planning our HM we also liked Flamingo Beach Resort.  It's in Guanacaste.  They have HM packages:

Los Lagos Resort near Arenal:

I stayed there with my family last December.  Very nice!  I would be a good place for a HM.

We are considering costa rica for our one year anniversary. Maybe you can help, we want to go cage diving with sharks. Not actually scuba dive with them, but go down in the cage. Do they offer this there?

Well, I'm not sure about the cage diving with sharks.  I'll ask around my friends and see.  In the meantime, I found this link for scuba diving packages:

Maybe you can contact them and ask. Hope this helps.

Here's the site of a popular National Park to go scuba diving among other activities.  I think you don't get to see sharks, but instead you see hump back whales and marine turtles.  It also has contact info if you have any questions.

Has anyone gotten married there?  We're looking for a really traditional setting in a smaller town---not in any of the touristy areas.  Maybe renting a beach house...???  Please email me if you know of any good locations for this...  Thnx!

Hi Ladies.  I went to Costa Rica for fun one year and it was great.  We did Arenal and then Tamarindo to surf.  If you want to be adventurous rent a car and do the tour yourself, that's what we did.  You will also save a lot of money that way.  I loved it, but the only thing that made me sad is that if you are a dog lover they don't treat them like we do in the states.  Otherwise you will love it!

I have been to Costa Rica many times and always come back in love with it even more! My fiance and I have decided to do something local for our HM but are planning to go to CR for our one year anniversary. I absolutely can't wait, the food, the people, the sights...
If you go to certain areas you almost get the island feel.
