Costa Rica Honeymoons


A Costa Rica honeymoon is a popular choice for couples looking for a Central American getaway. Boasting both serene beaches and lush rainforests, Costa Rica offers the irresistible combination of relaxation and adventure.

Coffee lovers, Costa Rica is famous for its java. So be sure to enjoy its brew as you honeymoon.


Costa Rica Honeymoons: Nature


Costa Rica boasts two stunning coasts: one of the Pacific, the other on the Caribbean. The island is home to four volcanoes, two of which are active, with mountaintop views that photographers can't resist. Nature preserves and national parks protect Costa Rica's landscape. White-sand beaches stretch for miles, while jungle territory is home to exotic wildlife.

Animal lovers can turtle watch along the Caribbean coast and whale watch in the South Pacific. If you trek into the jungle, be on the lookout for howler monkeys, sloths and exotic birds. Ten percent of the world's bird species can be found here. The fertile land is home to plant and animal life that makes it a popular site for biologists.

While Costa Rica can provide the comforts of hotel-based honeymooning at the beautiful Four Seasons, it also happens to be the number-one eco-tourism destination, perfect for couples looking to embrace eco-sensitivity in their accommodations. Find luxurious lodgings in the tropical forests, where you'll be surrounded by natural Costa Rican beauty.


Costa Rica Honeymoons: Adventure


For adventure-loving couples, a Costa Rica honeymoon can mean bungee jumping, white-water rafting or rappelling. Take a zip-line tour and swing through the forest. Try deep-sea fishing, learn to windsurf, or explore the island on horseback.

See an erupting volcano up-close at Arenal Volcano National Park. While a gorge protects you from the lava, it hardly detracts from the thrills of experiencing this natural wonder firsthand.


Costa Rica Honeymoons: Events and Attractions


If you're looking to experience Costa Rica's urban life, visit San Jose, its capital and largest city. Indulge in local cuisine on a rooftop terrace, check out Club Colonial, a 24-hour casino, and shop for hand-painted oxcarts and banana-fiber-paper notebooks. If you choose to stay in San Jose, take advantage of the many day trips and tours that encourage an exploration of more of the island.

Check out San Jose's Spirogyra Butterfly Garden, a beautiful garden that also serves to better the lives of disadvantaged women in the area. Thirty butterfly species live here; its lovely café is the perfect spot to pause in your busy day. Nearby, the El Pueblo Shopping Center is a tourist-friendly place for souvenir hunting.

Experience the Costa Rican nightlife, dancing to Latin rhythms in lively bars and discos.

Fiestas and public festivals are part of each town in Costa Rica. If your honeymoon happens to coincide with such a celebration, be sure to experience the traditional party. Bull-fighting, horse-riding contests, dancing and outdoor concerts make for vibrant and unforgettable cultural experiences.
