While your wedding will likely be one of the happiest days of your life, it’s the honeymoon that really gives you the chance to relax, reconnect and spend some quality time with that someone special.
Therefore, it’s important that you pick the perfect location for your newlywed adventure together.
There are few places more fitting for a romantic getaway than Costa Rica.
Whether you want to soak in the sun on a sandy beach, explore lush forests or even get your pulse racing with some exciting activities, a holiday in Costa Rica can be anything you want it to be.
Here are just a few reasons why this Central American gem makes the ideal honeymoon location.
The beautiful beaches
Sun, sea and sand: what more could you ask for on your honeymoon?
Costa Rica boasts some of the best beaches in the world, providing a tropical backdrop for surfers and sun worshippers alike.
At Real World Holidays, we can take you to some of the country’s most stunning sandy stretches in the likes of Playa Conchal, Playa Hermosa, Uva and Manzanillo.
If you want to dive right into the refreshing, azure waters, then you can even go surfing at Tamarindo and Playa Negra, indulge in a sport of kayaking at Damas Island in Manuel Antonio or take a look at the rich marine life living under the waves as you snorkel at Caño Island.
The natural beauty
As incredible as they may be, there is so much more to Costa Rica than just beaches.
There’s also a wealth of awe-inspiring natural features to experience, such as the waterfalls, rainforests and natural parks.
You can embark on a road trip in the Guanacaste National Park, strap on your walking boots for a hike across the unspoiled Pacific rainforest or make the most of paradise with the jungle canopy walkways and natural hot springs of Arenal.
These are the memories that you and your partner will cherish for a lifetime.
The spectacular wildlife
All those amazing natural environments are home to some fantastic species of wildlife that you won’t want to miss.
If you’re a lover of animals, then you and your significant other can enjoy on a spot of wildlife spotting in Tortuguero National Park.
Alternatively, you can plan a tour of Corcovado to see rare creatures like tapirs and jaguars or take to the waters to catch a glimpse of wales and dolphins.
The adventurous activities
There’s no denying the tranquil atmosphere of Costa Rica, but that doesn’t mean you can’t kick things into a higher gear if you want.
There are plenty of activities to get your heart racing here. Visit the area’s active Arenal Volcano or go zip-lining through the treetops in the area.
Of course, the waters also offer a host of high-octane activities too. These include rafting on the Rio Savegre and tubing at Rincon de la Vieja.
The stunning weather
Costa Rica benefits from a beautiful climate that stays warm and sunny for much of the year.
It’s also not too intense, with relief in the form of light afternoon showers, particularly from May to June.
The best time of the year to visit will likely be between December to April in order to avoid the heavier downpour of the wetter seasons.
Whenever you plan your honeymoon though, you’re sure to be welcomed by blissful rays, so make sure not to forget your sunscreen.
Weddings can end up being very expensive but it’s important that you don’t compromise on your honeymoon.
Thankfully, Costa Rica delivers an exceptional experience at a lower cost than many European destinations and holidays to other similar tropical locations.
Plus, with tailor made tours from Real Holidays, you can explore Costa Rica without breaking the bank.
