If you are a couple who loves nature, adventure, animals and romance, you can have it all in Costa Rica! I am sharing my favorite itinerary below for honeymooners who have 7-8 nights or longer for their honeymoon.
Fly into San Jose and drive an hour for your first 1-2 nights in the mountains and tropical forest. What better way to start off your honeymoon than to cozy up next to a fire and listen to the soothing sound of nature all around you.
After breakfast the next morning, enjoy the trails through the park area - guests experience up close encounters with tropical birds, butterflies, sloth and cat feedings, frogs and more. At the end of the trail, guests encounter 4 magnificent waterfalls before heading back to the lodge.
If time allows or you spend an extra day here, you can also tour the Poas Volcano and a coffee plantation, which is not far from this magical place.
Now it's time for a little adventure mixed with relaxation. Drive about 2-2.5 hours to La Fortuna where the Arenal Volcano is located. You will want to spend at least 3 nights here because there is so much to do and see. You can hike around the volcano, zip line, go white water rafting, repel down a waterfall, horseback riding, tubing, ATV adventures, and more! After a day of adventuring, you can enjoy the relaxing hot springs as you sip on a tasty beverage.
