place to start your search. This lush & tropical country offers everything from

adventure-packed to relaxing romantic and serene honeymoon plans. Read on

to learn more about what makes Costa Rica a bucket list honeymoon


Stunning Scenary in Every Direction

Costa Rica is renowned for its stunning natural beauty. The lush rainforests, incredible waterfalls, and pristine beaches on Pacific and Caribbean coasts make the place an ideal destination for romantic couples. (I hear the Jurrassic Park theme song playing)

An Adventure Seeker’s Paradise

If you are an active and adventurous couple, then Costa Rica is for you, because this country encourages eco-tourism, such as hiking, zip-lining white-water rafting, and snorkeling. You can even try your hand at diving in vibrant coral reefs.

Romantic Accommodations Abound

Costa Rica provides a variety of romantic accommodations, including premium resorts that offer every conceivable luxury. Many boutique hotels and secluded eco-lodges are ready to serve your every need.

Couples can relax and enjoy private beach picnics, candlelit dinners, and sunset cruises. Costa Rica offers a fine blend of adventure, relaxation, natural beauty, and cultural experiences, making it an excellent choice for a memorable honeymoon.

Animal Sightings

True happiness can be experienced in the Monteverde cloud forest, where small

groups can embark on canopy bridge tours and enjoy a breathtaking aerial view of the national park.

The rainforests of Costa Rica are home to more than 900 different bird species and a diverse array of monkeys and sloths(!), making animal sightings an assured experience and an opportunity for relaxation. It also helps reduce stress levels, allowing visitors to enhance their overall sense of well-being.

Wellness Through Yoga and Meditation

Finding wellness through yoga has become quite popular in Costa Rica. You can relax the mind and body through yoga sessions in Puerto Viejo’s Caribbean surroundings. Rustic, open-air studios in the Playa Cocles village integrate into the Zen experience, which allows vacationing yoga enthusiasts to have a relaxing time.

The Southern Pacific region of the country is establishing a leadership role in

promoting wellness activities. Surf camps and yoga teaching centers provide

accommodations, allowing enthusiasts to improve their hobbies. These havens,

surrounded by organic community gardens, offer a comprehensive wellness

experience, especially for those who visit Quepos, Uvita, Dominical, or Ojochal.

The options include enjoying guided meditations near waterfalls in Bajos del Toro,

indulging in a soothing massage at luxurious resorts, and snorkeling alongside the diverse marine life in Cahuita National Park's coral reef.

Local Dishes

Food also plays an integral part in the wellness journey. Costa Ricans are experts in creating delectable meals using the freshest ingredients, adhering to the farm-to-table trend.

The local Central Market in San José offers a way to connect with the earth with a

vibrant assortment of locally grown fruits and vegetables. The weekend farmers'

markets throughout the country offer seasonal items. Local sodas (small takeout

stands) offer daily menus that change every day to showcase the distinct flavors

of each region.

Truly, Costa Rica possesses a treasure trove of coveted experiences for

honeymooners, but with that said, it’s important to select an area that meets your

needs and goals for your dream honeymoon. If you’re trying to
