There is a reason why Costa Rica is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations, and that is because it is such an incredibly romantic place to go. Here are some of the top romantic destinations in Costa Rica for the couple that is looking to get away from it all.
1) Gaia Hotel and Reserve – This adults-only hotel is a secluded getaway that offers a nature reserve instead of a beach, but expect to be pampered in this unique atmosphere that gives you a chance to reignite the romance. You get a spa treatment, breakfast and access to the beautiful grounds where you can enjoy spotting sloths and iguanas while enjoying your morning coffee. While the hotel does not have its own beach, there is a beach not too far away where you can enjoy scuba diving.
2) Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort – This is an incredibly relaxing romantic spa offering volcano views, hot spring treatments and incredible food. Mention that you are on your honeymoon and you may get an upgrade! While kids are allowed at this resort, there are some areas which are more family friendly, so you can spend your days in the “kids free” areas. Enjoy a cocktail in the bar in the pool and enjoy a romantic horseback ride through the surrounding areas. All in all, this place is a great place to plan a longer getaway with a variety of activities on offer.
3) Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge – If you are on a tighter budget, and interested in eco-travel, then this is the place for you. It offers a romantic getaway package that includes your own bungalow, guided tours, birdwatching and all meals for a pretty decent price. You can add all kinds of bells and whistles, like scuba diving trips, sport fishing, and national park tours. Your travel package also includes transport from the airport, that can get a bit tricky so is well worth it!
4) Tango Mar – If what you are after is a beach resort, this is a great place to start. Rent a beachfront villa or a regular hotel room and still enjoy the romantic vibe. The romantic packages include horseback riding on the beach and a romantic dinner by candlelight. Relax during the day with a yoga class or a massage. This resort offers private beaches, waterfalls, and pools and is a great place for couples to escape.
