I was in Costa Rica the summer of 2006. Fun activities…ziplining, for sure. Playa Jaco is a great beach. Visit a cloud forest while you’re up there, and be sure to hit La Fortuna–this little town at the base of a volcano. There are also a ton of really great natural hot springs. It’s very inexpensive to travel in CR…have fun!

We went there and got engaged.  Do you want beach, mountains, rainforest or a bit of everything?  How long are you going for?  When we went we got hotels in small towns so it was easy to walk places and see everything going on but I know a lot of people would prefer more of a resort experience or secluded area for their honeymoon, do you have any preference?

FYI: I wanted to go to Costa Rica next June for my honeymoon.  I was turned off when I was warned of it being rainy season.  Although I did want to sight see and be adventerous I also wanted the option of laying on the beach/getting sun.

I just got back from my Costa Rican honeymoon!  They call the rainy season the “Green Season” and it did rain every day, but never while we were doing anything.  We got lots of sun too.

We flew into Liberia then stayed at the JW Marriott in Guanacaste by Tamarindo for 3 nights.  While there, we went deep seas fishing with Boos Tour Company and caught a huge Yellowfin Tuna which we took into town to make sushi that night.

Then we went to Arenal and stayed at the Arenal Nayara which some other blogger bees have stayed at.  It was AMAZING!  You get a private casita with an indoor and outdoor shower.  We had a room with a Jacuzzi outside.  We could see the volcano from our bed.  Awesome!!  In Arenal, we went zip-lining with Sky Trek.  They say it’s the longest and fastest zip line in the world.  I highly recommend it.  We also went to Tobacon Hot Springs and walked around the city of La Fortuna for a day.

The only drawback to Costa Rica is the roads.  Tons of potholes everywhere.  We rented a Corolla though and never had a problem, just lots of slow driving and bumpy rides. We loved the food and the people.  We wore bug spray at night and in any forested area and only left with 2 bites between us.

PM me if you want any more info.
