As Costa Rica announced it will reopen its borders to tourists from September (see the latest reopening updates) we’ve been fielding endless questions from couples who’ve had to postpone their adventure honeymoon vacation due to the COVID pandemic. As luck would have it, we’re actually heading into the perfect adventure months here, at Costa Rica Rios – September is when our whitewater rafting and kayaking tours usually take off, a time when we indulge in wild river action after two months of copious rains.
In September 2020, thanks to the you-know-what-pandemic, we’re having to re-plan many of our tours and, to satisfy government regulations and keep all out precious guests and guides safe, are currently only offering private and bespoke tours for honeymooning couples and families – or groups of friends traveling within their own social bubble.
Adventure-seeking couples will undoubtedly be the least affected of all our guests. Our honeymoon tours, by their very nature, are all about romance, adventure, fun, exclusivity and utterly amazing experiences – usually taken in remote areas and staying in cozy lodges, well away from tourist crowds.
Our adventure honeymoons, in essence, are always private & bespoke so planning your visit with us in COVID times isn’t going to be any more difficult!
Here’s the where, what and how of planning your bespoke adventure honeymoons in Costa Rica during COVID-times.
WHERE can you enjoy safe adventure honeymoons in Costa Rica?
Costa Rica has reopened all of its national parks with restricted visitor numbers (down 50%) which means as long as you plan ahead and book your visit with us, you’ll get all the spoils minus all the crowds. It’s really a win-win.
Right now, honeymoon adventures around the Arenal and Manuel Antonio National Parks are proving to be immensely popular. These are usually the two most-visited national parks in the country and 2020 offers the unrivaled chance to experience them in relative solitude.
For couples who wish to be totally immersed in pristine wilderness, and have the adventure of a lifetime, we can plan Off-the-Beaten-Path Honeymoons that include the wildlife-enriched Osa Peninsula. This kind of itinerary delivers the best adrenaline-thrills, coupled with exquisite tropical glamping in one of two of the most distinctive jungle lodges in the country.
For the ultimate adventure and an itinerary chock-full of exhilarating activities, we can also plan adventure honeymoons that include Turrialba, our favorite base for river-based exploits. There’s simply no better place for extreme canyoning, whitewater rafting and kayaking,

WHAT activities can you enjoy on Costa Rica Adventure Honeymoons?
Costa Rica is one of the world’s best honeymoon destinations for adventurous couples. Traditionally, honeymoons are taken to exotic and romantic destinations but Costa Rica manages to take that up a notch.
In this hub of eco-friendly tourism, an exotic and romantic honeymoon can include any and all of the following:
- Mountain biking
- Whitewater rafting
- Whitewater kayaking
- Horse riding
- Scuba diving
- ATV riding
- Waterfall chasing
- Wildlife spotting
- Thermal-pool soaking
- Volcano climbing…
…and just about every other super fun outdoor activity you can think of!
We usually fill every single day of our adventure vacation packages with a mind-boggling abundance of all the above-mentioned activities, given our guests want to squeeze every exhilarating moment out of their Costa Rica visit. On our adventure honeymoon itineraries, however, we are mindful to include a little more ‘downtime’, just so couples can enjoy the gorgeous lodges, startling beaches and indulgent spas.
It’s this beautiful and unique fusion of experiences that makes Costa Rica ideal for honeymoons: the country is simply tailor-made for romantic yet thrill-filled experiences.
HOW can you plan a bespoke adventure honeymoon, in COVID-times?
With private ground transfers, a bespoke itinerary and dedicated guides, your adventure honeymoon in Costa Rica will arguably be the safest way to travel in COVID-times. We can dodge any crowd that might descend on specific spots, make last-minute changes and basically work hard to keep you safe AND happy.
Tailor-made honeymoons are also genial when you have specific wishes: some couples prefer the super-hot deals of Green Season Honeymoons whilst others want to visit certain parts of the country at the very best time of year. Whatever the case may be: simply tell us when you want to honeymoon with us and what activities you’d most like to do – we can then guide you to the best places to visit, also taking your honeymooning budget into account.
When you Build Your Own Honeymoon, you’re in charge of the pace of the itinerary the intensity of the activities and the kind of lodges you’d love to stay in. The rest, you can simply leave to us.
Trust that with our comprehensive knowledge and experiences, we’ll plan a stunning honeymoon itinerary that’ll get your married life off to a (zip)flying start!
