2 nightsCENTRAL VALLEY

Heading north, just outside of San Jose, you’ll start your adventurous honeymoon in Costa Rica’s Central Valley. Spend your first two nights at Finca Rosa Blanca, a luxury sustainable hotel nestled in an organic tree-shaded coffee plantation, and delve deep into coffee, art, food, culture, adventure and nature. 

Make the most of this superb location and the excursions Finca Rosa Blanca has to offer. Explore the nearby volcanoes of Poas, an active volcano with three craters, Bava, on the continental divide, and Irazu. Push your adrenaline levels while rafting down the Pacuare, Sarapiqui or Reventazon rivers or talk a walk through the plantation and learn about organic Costa Rican coffee.

 2 nightsTORTUGUERO

Today you will head to the Caribbean coast, visiting the land of the endangered green turtles and Tortuguero National Park. Spend two nights at Tortuga Lodge and explore the canals of the national park by boat while keeping your eyes peeled for caiman, crocodiles, iguanas, sloths and river otters. Your English-speaking guide will also take you into the nearby village of Tortuguero, a rainforest sandbar. With no cars, it is very laid-back and easy to explore, with bars, restaurants and souvenir shops to visit.

Tortuguero Beach is also a must-visit: with four different species of turtles nesting here throughout the year you are in with a very good chance of seeing these majestic creatures.

3 nightsPACUARE RIVER

Head back inland to the luxurious Pacuare Lodge, which is beautifully set in the heart of Costa Rica's central rainforests, with plenty of activities on offer if you get itchy feet. Opt for the adventurous choice of arrival - an exhilarating rafting journey down the Pacuare River's swirling rapids will bring you to the lodge's palm-thatched bungalow suites, poking out amidst the leafy jungle. In the mornings, relax by your private spring-fed pool or in a hammock swinging by the river, listening to the sounds of the tropical rainforest. During the day, hike to scenic waterfalls, fly over the canopy on a zip line or experience the Cabecar indigenous culture. 

As night falls, hundreds of candles form a magical setting for a romantic al fresco dinning experience at the hotel's excellent restaurant.

3 nightsOSA PENINSULA

From the Caribbean coast to the central rainforest - it is now time to head west to Costa Rica’s incredible Osa Peninsula for three nights. Here, you can be as active or inactive as you like during your stay in Central America's last remaining tropical lowland rainforest.

Lapa Rios is the ultimate eco-lodge. Nestled within a 1,000-acre nature reserve surrounded by wildlife, and with spectacular ocean views, it offers pure escapism with a selection of tours to choose from. Learn about the traditional medicinal uses of various plants and seeds on a guided hike through the rainforest, and understand why it is an award-winning sustainable hotel with the Twigs, Pigs and Garbage tour - one that is highly praised by guests and not to be missed. Or, add some magic to your stay and enjoy the rainforest by night and experience its weird and wonderful nocturnal world.

1 nightALAJUELA

A quirky yet stylish retreat, the Xandari Plantation will be your final stop before catching your return flight home. A mash-up of original paintings, colourful mosaics, stained-glass walls and superb views over the Central Valley, take some time to enjoy the artistic accommodation with a leisurely breakfast in the garden or a scenic swim in the pool. If you have time, you could squeeze in a round of golf in the nearby course or pay a visit to the Zoo Ave, which cares for injured or orphaned wildlife including crocodiles, white-tailed deer, snakes, monkeys, cougars and iguanas.
