Useful Tips for Planning a Honeymoon in Costa Rica

Once your wedding plans are complete for the actual ceremony, such as the flowers, dresses, decorations, and other aspects to make your day perfect, it’s time to start planning the honeymoon. A honeymoon in a tropical location is the perfect way to relax after all the stress of the wedding. Costa Rica is one of the most popular destinations for romantic getaways, including honeymoons. The following tips will help you as you plan your honeymoon in Costa Rica.

  • Plan for the weather. If you are adamant about having your honeymoon in Costa Rica, you may want to consider planning your wedding around the seasons. This will ensure that you visit Costa Rica during the best seasonal period. However, you can also save some money by planning your honeymoon for the off-season — just be prepared for rain.
  •  Seek local advice. Instead of mapping out an itinerary full of tourist activities, speak with the locals about local attractions and activities. Enjoying Costa Rica from a local perspective will allow you to immerse yourself in the beauty and culture that makes up this amazing paradise.
  •  Choose accommodations geared toward romance. This is your honeymoon, so don’t overlook the romance — couples massage, dinner on the beach or a sunset cruise bring romance front and center. A stay at the Ylang Ylang provides all these indulgences and more!

Cocolores – Also beachfront . They aren’t rated as high as they should be on Trip Advisor, because of their grumpy staff. But the food is amazing and people go back again and again.

Beautifully assembled food that tastes absolutely divine – worth every penny. Reviewers seem to love it all. Lovely curries. Price is a bit steep but not out of hand. I beg of you to follow the link and drool over pictures of the food.

Puggo’s – One of the newer restaurants. Everything on the menu is completely delicious. The first time I had the “whole baked fish” I thought it was the best fish I had ever eaten.

A locally beloved restaurant decorated like a bedouin tent, Puggo’s specializes in Middle Eastern cuisine, including falafel, hummus, kebabs and aromatic fish, which they dress in imported spices and herbs and roast whole. Cap it off with a strong cup of Turkish coffee. (lonelyplanet.com)
