Located in Central America, Costa Rica is a sublime, tropical nation awash with jungle landscapes, exotic wildlife, and idyllic beaches. A Costa Rica honeymoon can be spent exploring lush nature by day and enjoying great dining and relaxation by night.
A tropical honeymoon
Since Costa Rica is famed for its astoundingly diverse range of native species, getting up close and personal with nature is simply a must. The country's national parks are the best places to get in touch with your wild side during your Costa Rica honeymoon. Sitting on the southwest coast, Cahuita National Park is a gorgeous marine park with access to the country's best coral reefs. For more dramatic landscapes, visit the Arenal Volcano National Park, accessible from Monteverde. Admire the active volcano itself, hike across mountains, and even relax in natural hot springs amid stunning scenery.
No Costa Rica honeymoon would be complete without spending some time on one of the country's incredible beaches. There are multiple to choose from, but Jaco Beach is a great choice for visitors staying in the capital, San Jose. To take a couple's surfing lesson, head to Tamarindo Beach on the northwest coast of the country. Travel just a bit north to Playa Grande and witness the magical sight of giant leatherback turtles nesting.
If you're a couple that craves action and adventure on your vacation, then a honeymoon in Costa Rica will not disappoint. The Pacific coast is excellent for lovers of fishing, being particularly famous for sailfish and snapper. What's more, scuba diving opportunities abound along both the west and east coasts. The Gulf de Papagayo is famed as one of the best spots but most areas offer something for both experienced and novice divers. However you spend your Costa Rica honeymoon, you're guaranteed to have a natural paradise as the backdrop.
