We haven’t gone to Costa Rica yet, but we picked these places off of tripadvisor reviews/photos.

Near the airport (we get in late): http://www.fincarosablanca.com/?page=rates

This place is fairly affordable and convenient for sleeping just one night by the SJO airport.


By Arenal (volcano):http://www.thespringscostarica.com/index.html

Expensive – gorgeous though.


By the beach – this is a brand new place and it just looks so beautiful. Also, very affordable at under $200 a night! A little risky b/c there aren’t as many reviews on tripadvisor since it just opened in Jan. http://www.oxygenjunglevillas.com/

If you haven’t nailed down your itinerary yet…definitely head to Samara in Costa Rica. Sleepy little beach town, away from the gringo-infested Tamarindo, etc.

Fiance and I spent a week or so last spring in Costa Rica. We split our time between the touristy must-dos in the Arenal region (ziplining, canyoning, volcano hiking, hot springs, etc) and then headed west to the coast. We stayed at these amazing little treehouses in Samara–definitely the best in town. http://www.samaratreehouse.com/  There’s a surf school right next door, and they also have sea kayaking tours out to the little island of chora in the bay. They served us breakfast every morning underneath our treehouse. If you go, book one of the treehouses with the ocean view. They only have 6 units (2 aren’t on stilts) and some of the views are blocked by palm trees. Several good local restaurants, too! A great little beach shack bar or two–it’s secluded and perfect!!!

We stayed in this awesome place near Manual Antonio that had the perfect combination of everything we wanted. Romanitc setting to die for surronded with hiking trails and waterfalls, great tour choices, and non stop gormet food from your own private chefs. It was wonderful! The AI package was $3700 for the week for two people and includes all kinds of stuff. We were a bit nervous a first because it is not a regular hotel – there is only one group at a time there, so it was kind of hard to check out. But it turned out to be even better then we expected. Really great.

If you do Arenal, I HIGHLY recommend staying at the Arenal Observatory Lodge. It’s the only place on the lava side of the volcano, and we watched the flow from our private balcony, the hot tub, the hotel terrace. Really great. Although it is not super luxurious (nice, big, clean rooms…but basic) so if you want that for your honeymoon maybe not the best place. But everywhere else you have to take night tours to the right side of the volcano to see the lava (some actually come to the hotel terrace).

Fiance and I keep a travel blog, and you can find info and pics in our Costa Rica post at http://patrinadoestheglobe.blogspot.com/

Good luck!

I will be going to Costa Rica on my honeymoon and we are staying in a few different areas.  I saw that Finca Rosa Blanca was mentioned above, that is one of the places where we will stay.  It is beautiful!  We are also staying at Arenal Nayara and the Grand Occidental Papagayo.  We went through a company called Latin Destinations and they have been wonderful so far.  Good luck!
