Why a Costa Rica Honeymoon Rocks!

Manuel Antonio National Park honeymoonIt probably won’t surprise you to learn that an overwhelming majority of couples are more excited about their impending honeymoon than they are about their wedding. We have an inkling, in fact, that 100% of couples who are planning a honeymoon in Costa Rica fall in that very same category.

And who would blame them? When heading to Costa Rica on honeymoon, not only do loved-up couples have the chance to enjoy the superlative luxuries befit an unforgettable luna de miel (it even sounds more romantic in Spanish!) but they also have the priceless opportunity to see and experience one of the world’s most spectacular countries. All the while, of course, whispering sweet nothings into each others ears…

So are Costa Rica honeymoons really all that great?! Yes, they are!

And here’s Why Costa Rica Honeymoons Rock…

There’s Something for Everyone

Costa Rica honeymoonAs cliché as that may sound, Costa Rica really does offer something for everyone. Quite amazing considering its diminutive size. Whether you’re an active couple, chillax duo, a twosome who wants to get back to basics, or newlyweds dreaming of superb luxury, you’ll find copious choices in this stellar land.

That’s because Costa Rica has made good on its promise to dedicate itself almost entirely to tourism and wilderness preservation. It’s the world leader in eco-resorts (to suit all budgets), boasts an array of fantastic National Parks for active pursuits, is at the top of the game when it comes to outdoor sports, and is framed on both sides by endless miles of pristine beaches. Surf on the Pacific and sunbake on the Caribbean. Kayak by day and swoon over a candlelit dinner by the beach by night. No matter what you dream of doing on your honeymoon…you’ll find a place to do it in Costa Rica.

A Honeymoon Close to Home

There are innumerable reasons why Costa Rica is one of the favored honeymoon destinations for North Americans, one of the most pivotal being that it’s insanely close to home. Where else could you enjoy such phenomenal nature and variety only a few hours’ plane ride away? Because let’s face it: as much as everyone would love to enjoy a 3-month honeymoon, most people can only manage a one to two-week break. Wasting half of it on jet-lag would be a colossal travesty.

It’s Affordable, Without Compromise

A week-long honeymoon spent in a 5* luxury resort in Costa Rica can costs as much (or as little) as just ONE day in an equally luxurious resort back home. If you’re after a destination that delivers in style, and wish for more bang for your hard-earned buck, then Costa Rica just can’t be beaten.

Love nature? You’ll love Costa Rica

Costa Rica bio-diversityOne of the most bio-diverse countries on earth, Costa Rica is a wonderland of natural highlights. This is arguably the number one reason couples choose it for their honeymoon.

Among the kaleidoscope of ecosystems, you’ll discover over 30 national parks and wildlife refuges, a dozen bio reserves, and almost 30 fiercely protected zones, where almost 900 species of birds, 1, 500 varieties of fish, more than 200 reptiles, 150 types of amphibians, and 13,000 species of plants flourish splendidly. If you’re thinking you may require several vacations to soak up all this beauty…you may be quite right.

The Weather is Idyllic

Year-round warm temps and a tropical disposition are what gift Costa Rica that ‘postcard picture perfect’ image. Sure, there’s a rainy season, when parts of the country can be inaccessible and too soggy to explore in depth, but most of the time, and in the greater majority of the country, there’s always one spot that’s just perfect. Two extensive coastlines, numerous mountains and an array of national parks mean that no matter what month of the year you choose for your Costa Rica honeymoon, you’ll always find an ideal spot to visit. No need to pack the thermals!

The Culture is Enticing

The people of Costa Rica, so called Ticos, are as warm as the days and nights here. They are humble and proud people, with a strong sense of community and heritage, who are always hospitable and welcoming to visitors. In the most popular areas you’ll find an overwhelming majority of Ticos speak English well, and if they don’t, they’ll still go out of their way to smile, say hello, and help you if needed. With a plethora of interesting cultural attractions all over the country, as well as festivals and celebrations at least once a month, the options for cultural enrichment are plentiful too. Moreover, Costa Rica is exotic enough to feel ‘a million miles away from home’, but not quite foreign enough that you feel like you’ve landed on an alien planet. Because even though a serving of culture shock can do wonders for the spirit, it’s safe to say it doesn’t lend well to a very relaxing or romantic honeymoon vacation.

There’s A Constant Adrenaline Rush

Renowned as the adrenaline sports capital of Central America, Costa Rica offers not only superlative nature but a myriad of ways to get up close and personal with it. Combine wildlife spotting with a sting of heart pumping fun and feel the stresses of everyday life simply melt away. There’s just no better way to enjoy the very best this country has to offer.
