A honeymoon in Costa Rica offers endless possibilities, just like your new marriage.

The country is a virtual painting of romantic vistas, stunning waterfalls and pools, and unforgettable sunsets.  Whether you choose the fertile majesty surrounding the volcanoes or the breezes blowing off of the Pacific Ocean, Costa Rica offers an exciting, natural setting to kick off a new life together.  FCR recognizes that new couples are going to want to spend time both sequestered and outside and with that in mind, we will custom tailor your honeymoon trip to this beautiful country. 

Packages can of course be tailored to any taste.  FCR is proud to present numerous four and five star hotels, and your key to restaurants serving both local and fine international cuisine.  When you are ready to leave your suite or romantic cabin to sample some local color, scenery or adventure, FCR is there to guide you to the best that Costa Rica has to offer.


A typical Costa Rican honeymoon package might be as follows:

On day one your guide and FCR representative will meet you at the airport. FCR secures your transportation and soon you will be merging into the busy traffic on the streets of San Jose. Just outside of San Jose lies some of the country's most beautiful and romantic regions. Indeed, many clients choose to spend the first 24 hours in San Jose, in one of its four or five star hotels. San Jose is the bustling capital of Costa Rica with major attractions including interesting architecture, the National Theater, museums, shopping and international dining options. A brief stay in San Jose will allow the couple to revive their sprits for the honeymoon adventure ahead.

Costa Rica is home to spectacular and active volcanoes. FCR recommends that honeymooners travel from the San Jose area to the Arenal volcano area.

Superior rooms and romantic cabins are available in this scenic part of Costa Rica at the base of an active volcano. The vegetation and the bird life are varied. The area is fertile and flowers are everywhere. This could well be your first taste of Costa Rican coffee, gallo pinto, local frutas and breakfast specialties.

The Arenal volcano area puts you in striking distance of all sorts of activities outside of your accommodations. Local attractions include fantastic canopy tours on zip lines through the tree tops of the local jungle. In contrast, a couple can rest in the serenity of thermal mineral waters that are heated from the lava flowing below the volcanic soil. One of the most breathtaking sights is to see actual lava run down the top of the Arenal volcano in a fire ball at night. Many of hotels have natural spas and hot pools. In the area are several renowned hot springs resorts. A favorite of FCR guests, the hot springs resorts offer luxury spa services, private hot tubs in secluded settings and communal hot tubs that include an in-the-swimming- pool bar that seats thirty people. Open yourself to the experience of a couples massage in a tropical setting outside under the stars while soft music plays and you sip a little champagne. You may want to sample the ample buffet laid out in the restaurant before returning to your honeymoon suite.

On popular honeymoon adventure that the staff of FCR recommends is the canopy tour with horses. The area surrounding Arenal has some superior zip lines where clients are harnessed safely onto a series of pulleys that allow one to fly through the air up to 300 meters above the ground and with some lines almost a thousand meters in length. These tours may start in a cart pulled by a tractor where clients can view waterfalls cascading below. From the overlooks, it's a 15 minute walk into the primary forest. Your guide will discuss the nature of the area. The surrounding forest is home to toucans, monkeys and a variety of frogs.

The first time you are hooked into a zip line you are certainly paying attention. Our favorite tour operators use up to 11 lines of various lengths to “zip” you from platform to platform through the treetops. By the end of the excursion, you may feel like superwoman but you will have known you've had a shot of fear factor. Words can't describe the thrill of zipping out of a green canopy, suspended in midair, as you fly past a waterfall and make a safe landing on the next platform with your guide and instructors.

In the three to five days you might want to spend in the Arenal area, there is of course local shopping, walking tours, great biking opportunities and local butterfly farms and wildlife exhibits. FCR can put you on the trail with the best guides (with as little or the most help that you may need).

No trip to Costa Rica is complete without going to the beach. While the Caribbean side has its own character, FCR recommends a trip to Manuel Antonio on the Pacific coast. For an outstanding change of location, FCR might recommend the Arenas Del Mar beach front resort which offers deluxe accommodations in an area of "certified sustainability"-- in short a nature resort located adjacent to Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific Coast. There is nothing like the sun going down over the Pacific to reaffirm why you came here. There are secret beaches including Playa Guapil. These deserted wide sand beaches have plenty of shady palms and nature walking trails connecting beach to beach and leading to the nature reserve. You can walk the beach all the way to the Baru River (30 minutes) where you will be just a stone's throw or a stream's width away from the fishermen and surfers on the beach on the north end of Playa Dominical. An FCR favorite is a quiet water kayak trip in the mangroves where you may explore the untouched habitat of monkeys and small caimans.

Lovely Manuel Antonio makes you want to simply linger on the beach near your room or in one in one of the small restaurants or cafés. Many people choose to spend their time this way. If you feel you might want to get your blood racing again in the outdoors, FCR recommends the rafting in the area. A rafting trip to the Savegre River includes transportation and snacks for a day trip down this Class II and III white water treat. During the descent through the rapids you have a chance to enjoy the canyons, waterfalls, tropical scenery, a hike and even some lunch native style. This is actually a romantic adventure trip and provides great photo opportunities for a couple exploring the waterfalls on the river.

The trip portrayed above is simply representative of one of the trails we've blazed. Certainly we can set up and put you up anywhere in the country.
Some people prefer the northwest region of Guanacaste. Some people flock to the more remote and funky areas from beautiful Dominical down to Drake Bay. If you want to learn to surf we will put you in the hands of the best surfing instructors on the Costa Rican Pacific coast. If you want to dive, we'll get you to the Island de Cano where you can drop into the water between harmless white tipped sharks and fat tuna that just may be cruising through the underwater cliffs. If you want more adrenalin than romance in your day, FCR can put you on the Naranjo, where some of the river runs come close to the line between heart pumping excitement and white knuckled fear.

However you choose to spend you honeymoon days, FCR will provide you with transportation back from your beach front abode to San Jose. Most guests stay close to the airport the last night. If you still have energy, cabs are available to take you into town. Some clients have been known to hit the slot machines in the casinos on the way out or perhaps stay up late for a disco. We recommend staying near the airport as it will make the transition out simpler and less time consuming. When you plane takes off back to, you will still be reveling in your romantic Costa Rican getaway and planning your next trip back – with FCR as your tour company!
