For those looking for a honeymoon with exclusive lodges, unique excursions, beautiful beaches and lots of charm, Costa Rica ticks all the boxes. From the incredible Pacuare Reserve to the stunning coastline of the Nicoya Peninsula, this 11-day trip is Central America at its best.

Your adventure starts at Pacuare Lodge, which is reached by rafting down the Pacuare River – a truly memorable start to your honeymoon. The lodge itself is an idyllic hideaway deep in the Costa Rican jungle and the seclusion is truly magical. All shared excursions are included during your stay, from zip lining, hiking and birdwatching to canyoning and cultural experiences. The lodge itself is a beautiful place to simply unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet – give or take a few bird calls – that comes from living in the forest. During your stay you’ll enjoy breakfast in the Nest, a unique dining spot high in the canopy, reached by whizzing along a 130m cable.

Your next stop is Arenal where you’ll enjoy a sunset bird watching boat trip as well as a private dinner at an open‐air rainforest bungalow. Every honeymoon needs a bit of beach time and the Nicoya Pensinsula is a beautiful stretch of coastline where you can horse ride along the sand and simply enjoy some quality time relaxing.
