Assisting couples with booking their honeymoon in Costa Rica is one of my favorites! There are so many ways to see Costa Rica and so many activities to do that pre-planning is a must.
Jessie and Tyler just returned from a week in the Arenal/Monteverde/Guanacaste area. They decided to pack a lot of activities into one week because that fits their personality. They enjoy being “on-the-go” while on vacation and found Costa Rica to fit their lifestyle.
Here is a sample of their itinerary:
Arenal, Costa Rica
After landing in San Jose, Jessie and Tyler immediately went to Arenal to stay in their own private bungalow with an outdoor shower and backyarden garden (their favorite hotel out of the whole trip!). They spent the next couple days going on a waterfall horseback riding tour and then hiking along the base of the Arenal volcano and relaxing in the Hot Springs.
Monteverde, Costa Rica
From Arenal they transfered up to the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Monteverde is a unique balance of conservation and tourism. There is an amazing variety of flora and fauna, plus the largest variety of butterflies and moths in the world.
Since Jessie is a biologist I suggested a guided night walk in the forest. Over 80% of the forest life becomes active after nightfall. They also went ziplining, walked the hanging bridges, and viewed the butterfly and hummingbird gardens. Favorite tour of the whole trip: the night walk!!
Guanacaste, Costa Rica
They finished the week in the small town of Tamarindo where they got in some beach time, went snorkeling, and tried many of the local restaurants food and drink.
After the happy couple returned home we talked about their experience, the weather, their favorite parts, the bumpy roads, and the people of Costa Rica. Jessie and Tyler also wrote a review on the Elite Escapes Facebook page:
Thank you so much to Leah and everyone at Elite Escapes for planning and organizing the most amazing honeymoon. It was a perfect week in Costa Rica. Everything was great from hotels and activities to the transportation around the country. Pura Vida!
