With its pristine beaches, serene forests and thriving wildlife, Costa Rica, in addition to being an ideal spot for green travelers is also a haven for couples looking for a romantic getaway. So, if you are looking for some ideas on how to spend your time with your partner in this forever sunny party town, then read on below:
Spoil Yourself in the Hot Springs at the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica
While watching a volcano erupt is usually pretty unromantic, soaking yourself in the hot spring of one can be both soothing and exhilarating.
The Arenal Volcano has been snoozing since 2010 but nevertheless it provides an adequate hot spring for soaking yourself in. Bear in mind that you’d have to take a hike in order to get there. Although the hike is anything but dull, be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
Head out to Marino Ballena National Park to watch whales
Located in Southern Costa Rica is the beautiful village of Uvita which is notable for its sandy beaches and annual music event. With a little luck accompanied by perfect timing, your trip to the Marino Ballena National Park might let you witness the migration of Humpback whales.
While the chances of you getting to see whales are pretty good, even if you don’t, you wouldn’t regret taking a trip to this national park as it has some amazing beaches. You can also set out to see the Whale Tale in Uvita.
Make a romantic gesture on a suspended bridge in Monteverde
Admire the beautiful canopy on this path with your partner, which consists of eight suspension bridges. The lush green scenery on both sides of this trail is sure to take your breath away, which makes this place a perfect spot to propose to your partner or make some sort of romantic gesture.
Experience the best of Costa Rica at a nice Villa
While most solo travelers don’t put much effort into figuring out their accommodation in a city, as a couple, a lot of thought goes into where you’ll be staying as a nice place to stay is essential for romantic getaways.
There are tons of amazing hotels and villas in Costa Rica but my top two favorites are Las Catalinas and Kura.
Las Catalinas provides you with the best that Costa Rica has to offer. From rafting and zip lining to surfing and fishing, the adventures on your bucket list will be checked off in Las Catalinas. It is also an amazing place if you are just looking to relax.
Kura is also an amazing villa to spend your romantic getaway at. Couples especially love this hotel as it provides them with their much-needed privacy and intimacy as there are only six guest villas on the property.
