Type

1

San José

City

The first day of your romantic honeymoon is here, and there will be idyllic moments aplenty for you both to take advantage of. On your first day, you’ll be waving goodbye to your well-wishers before boarding your flight to the capital city of San José. Touching down on the runway, you will be whisked off to the beautiful Hotel Alta las Palomas. Make a splash in the outdoor pool before popping the cork on the complimentary chilled champers and tucking into the special dessert in your decadent Deluxe Room.

2-5

Osa Peninsula

Wildlife

Rise with the sun, in the blissful furnishings of your abode before jetting off to the blissfully remote Osa Peninsula. Once arrived, slow things down, taking the day entirely at your own leisure. After soaking in the sunshine and spending some quality time in the day together, you’ll take a seat for a truly special candlelit dinner, complete with a bottle of fizz. And that’s not all. Before bedding down for another stunning night’s sleep in the El Remanso bungalow, you'll get the chance to unwind with a 1-hour massage each… And relax.

Day 3 sees a variety of adventurous on-site activities to undertake, from a guided Pacific hike to some colourful birdwatching. And for those couples seeking a little more thrill? You can choose to board the Waterfall Rappelling Tour. Get ready to push yourself beyond your limits as you peer down onto the cascading waters and unlock your inner courage by gently stepping off the cliff edge. Scenic views and beautiful rainforest abound, so it's definitely worth the challenge and one you can tackle together!

On days 4 and 5, spend quality time together however you wish. You may choose to embark on another guided hike, or take an early morning nature walk, spotting the abundant wildlife. Or maybe this is the perfect opportunity to scope out the additional sights of your spectacular accommodation, with a dip in the cooling pool waters or a snooze in the hammock.

6-8

Arenal & North

Activity & Adventure

On day 6, you’ll be making your way to Arenal, one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica. Check into your exquisite Honeymoon Suite at the Tabacon Grand Thermal & Spa hotel. After a day of travelling, you’ll be eager to spend the day chilling out at the resort and sinking back into the sensational delights of the spa itself.

The very next morning, you’ll indulge on a private tour of Arenal Volcano National Park. Uncover the active sights and sounds of Arenal Volcano, and absorb the panoramic views at its base, with a splendid guided nature hike. After a scenic journey, you’ll sit back and unwind in the warming geothermal pools at the luxurious Tabacón hot springs. Melt into the enveloping waters as you enjoy a blissful soak to soothe aching legs.

Your final day at Arenal offers up something a little different, as you wander through the Arenal Hanging Bridges Park, by twilight! On this exceptional evening tour, you’ll discover a totally different experience at night than you would in the blaze of the midday sun. You'll stamp excited foot, one after the next as the entrancing forest offers up natural treats in all of its nocturnal splendour. Feast your eyes on the nocturnal activity of amphibians, reptiles, and mammals as they go about their nocturnal grooves, and watch in amazement up to 4,500 species - twice as many as in the day - of butterfly flit amongst the forest. Not to mention the species of exotic flowers that only bloom in the depths of night.

Things to do

9-13

North Pacific Coast

Beach

On day 9, you’ll swap adventure for ambience, as you head for the peaceful village of Nosara on the North Pacific Coast. Embarking on a lengthy drive across country, you’ll stop off en route for a special VIP lunch experience before continuing on with your travels. Upon arrival, you’ll kick off your shoes and settle into the tastefully decorated furnishings of the Lagarta Lodge, where a chilled bottle of wine invites an evening of intimacy.

Wake up to the gentle lull of the ocean in your romantic Panorama Suite and enjoy a private morning Lagarta Nature Reserve tour. Fill up with a carefully prepared buffet breakfast feast before being picked up by the hotel's resident naturalist guide. Once you've reached the reserve, you'll begin a lazy 2-hour walk uncovering the vibrant plant and birdlife within the mangrove forest, as the roar of the howler monkey reaches your observant ears.

Then it's time to hit the beach! Head to the beauty of Playa Ostional, where velvety stretches of sand and shimmering shores will take your breath away. If you're looking for a little early morning activity - and we mean 5 am early - this is an exceptional place to capture a unique honeymoon activity and watch the turtles lay their eggs. On your final day, you may wish to enjoy a luxurious lie in and head down to any one of Nosara’s other plentiful beaches at your own pace. Eclipsed by the rugged rainforest itself, take shade under the sway of a palm tree or let the sun kiss your skin as you sunbathe hand in hand on perfect white sands.

14-15

San José

General Tour

Today, you’ll begin your journey home with a flight back to San José. Before spending the night back at the Hotel Alta las Palomas, you may wish to uncover the nightlife with a meander around the bustling Central Market. Dine on a tasty local dinner before heading back to the hotel to unwind in the sauna and bed down in the comforts of your double room.

On your final day, you'll board your final flight back home, dreaming of intimate memories made together.
