“We are pretty adventurous but also want the relaxation since it is our honeymoon. This will be our first time traveling out of the country so we want to see all that we can without feeling rushed. My fiance and I have been together 5 years and when we get married, it will be just over 6 years.”

Honeymoon in Costa Rica
Summary of the trip planning conversation
Hi Miranda, welcome to kimkim and congratulations on your engagement. We'd be happy to make this a great honeymoon for you both!
We can put together some great adventures mixed with relaxation in Costa Rica. When it comes to activities, are there certain activities either of you are especially interested in? Otherwise, one of our local specialists can put together some ideas for you to consider.
Any preference for accommodation? We can recommend some beautiful, boutique places, for example, depending on your budget.
We don't have a preference on where to stay but we don't want to rent a car so we were looking into somewhere that would have transportation to different activities. Horseback riding is a must as well as zip lining and river rafting

Great. Our local specialist can make some recommendations, then. It might be good to divide your time between two different places from where you can do some great day trips. This way, you'll feel relaxed yet still be able to see two different parts of Costa Rica...
Let me know if that sounds good, and happy to get you connected to one of our specialists.

Great. I've invited Mariana to join us. She'll work with you to put together a detailed trip plan for your honeymoon which can be customized based on your feedback. Expect to hear back within 24 hours :)
My name is Mariana and I will be happy to help you create the best honeymoon you can imagine. I’m based in Costa Rica and our company specializes in active adventures.
I'll be more than glad to help you organize this trip, I'll try to include all the activities you mentioned.
I don't know if you already have an idea of what places would you like to visit, here are some ideas of what we can do:
Day 1: Arrival to San José Inlt. Airport and private transfert to your hotel (night in San José)
Day 2: Depart to Pacuare river where you will raft until you get your lodge in the middle of the jungle
Day 3: Relax day at Pacuare
Day 4: Shared transfer to La Fortuna where you will see the Arenal Volcano
Day 5: Arenal: you can relax at the hot springs, go to the hanging bridges, or go on a sunset cruise in the Arenal lake among other possible activities.
Day 6: Depart to Tamarindo beach (Pacific coast) in a shared transfer and arrival to a nice boutique hotel made especially for couples.
Day 7 and 8: Relax in Tamarindo, surf leçons available in this area, you can also do horseback riding, practice some kayak or a boat tour along the mangroves.
Day 9: Depart to San José Int. airport and flight back home
Let me know if that fit’s what you’re looking for or if you want to change some parts.
Great! It looks good to me. We were hoping to arrive earlier in the morning on Day 1. So are there things to do in San Jose for the day?
Sure, you can visit the museum of gold, Museum of jade, the national theater and the central market. Everything is walking distance from your hotel so that’s really good.
I hope you like the itinerary, let me know if you have any questions.
