Costa Rica Honeymoons

A Costa Rica Honeymoon is a perfect tropical setting in which to relax and unwind in after your wedding day. Imagine remote eco-lodges, heavenly spas and deserted beaches. Costa Rica is bliss. You might be looking for pure relaxation and pampering, or a more active honeymoon with exciting highlights such as zip wires and rafting, or a combination of both.  We know Costa Rica like the back of our hands, and we are full of ideas about what makes the perfect Costa Rica Honeymoon. 

Why choose Costa Rica for your honeymoon?

Costa Rica is a rising star that has been off the radar for far too long! It is now becoming one of the most popular Latin American destinations, largely because of its specatacular:

  • Wildlife: Costa Rica is extremely diverse with cloud forest, rainforest, Caribbean coast, Pacific coast, volcanic regions and mangroves. All of which make this small and peaceful country home to a huge array of wildlife.
  • Jungle: If you are dreaming of a remote and luxurious jungle retreat after a hectic wedding, then look no further.
  • Beaches: the Pacific and Caribbean both have areas with larger hotels and those with quieter villages where the beaches will be virtually deserted. We can help in selecting one that is right for you.
  • Pura Vida: the mantra of Costa Rica is to enjoy life, live sustainably and be happy. You will fall under this spell after a few days, quite easily.
  • Direct flights: You can fly from London direct with British Airways. There are also lots of direct flights from the main US Airports.

  • What are the most romantic hotels in Costa Rica?

    Costa Rica is a small county, roughly about the size of Switzerland (Europe), and getting around is easy. For a luxury jungle experience then the multi award winning Pacuare is highly recommended. For the adventure-seeker then a visit to the tourist hub of Arenal where you can stay at a larger hotel such as Nayara is a good choice for a couple of days. For the ultimate wildlife experience then a trip to one of the most biodiverse pockets of planet earth, the Osa Peninsula is a must. One of our favourite hotels is El Remanso.

    What are the top Costa Rica honeymoon experiences?

    It all depends on what style of Costa Rica honeymoon will suit you best. Based on our visits, we have selected these experiences as being the most romantic and fun honeymoon activities:

  • Hot springs in the jungle under the stars: there are a couple of beautiful hot springs where you can have a cocktail, soothe your muscles and relax under the stars with the sounds of nature.
  • Zip wiring: an adrenaline activity to get your heart racing is not for the faint-hearted. Costa Rica has some of the longest zip wires in the world.
  • Couples massage: whilst at a remote eco lodge in the jungle treat yourself to a relaxing massage to help you get into the Costa Rican frame of mind-Pura vida!
  • Dolphin-spotting in the Osa Peninsula: we can arrange for the local fisherman to collect you from your lodge and take you out in one of their boats in search of dolphins that live to play in the turbulent waters created by the boat. A wonderful memory.
  • Sunset cocktails: finish your Costa Rica honeymoon at a beach and watch the sunset over the beautiful Pacific with a cocktail in hand.

    Our top three Costa Rica honeymoon tips

  • The capital is not the most interesting of places, and it is often gridlocked. We advise avoiding the centrally located hotels and recommend a stay at one of the coffee plantations on the outskirts of the city
  • Embrace the relaxed way of life of Pura Vida, and live like a local. It is a chilled out country.
  • Take binoculars! Even the most sceptical end up becoming amateur birdwatchers in this country where there are almost 900 different species.
