At first glance, planning a surfing trip for your honeymoon may seem like a strange idea. But Costa Rica is a paradise for surfers, making it the perfect activity to complement a romantic getaway vacation to this bio-diverse paradise of cloud forests, volcanoes, and exotic flora and fauna.
Even if you or your spouse have never tried surfing before, surf camps specialize in helping honeymooners enjoy this most ancient of healthy sports. Imagine being out on the crystal clear waters of the Pacific under a clear blue sky as you laugh and enjoy one of the most fun activities ever devised by human beings. And surfing blends perfectly with other exciting outdoor activities in the parks and nature reserves of Costa Rica.
The Elements of a Perfect Honeymoon
There’s a good reason why Costa Rica is a popular choice for newlyweds. The country has exactly the right mix of romance, adventure, and intimacy. Whether you want to splurge on world-class resorts or explore the hidden gems of the country, Costa Rica has it all. Honeymooners can spend a day out on the waves enjoying surfing followed by a long night of relaxing and celebrating their love in an intimate setting.
Some honeymooners come to Costa Rica strictly for the amazing surf spots, but there are a nearly infinite number of options when it comes to other activities. Whether you want to learn Spanish, visit an animal sanctuary, kayak, horseback ride on the beach, explore a beautiful waterfall, relax in natural hot springs, enjoy exciting nightlife, or wander through open-air markets bursting with fresh produce, there’s plenty to do and see in Costa Rica in addition to surfing.
Costa Rica is rightly famous for having some of the most spectacular nature found anywhere on the planet. Home to nearly 1,000 species of birds, 300,000 species of insects, and hundreds of species of butterflies, Costa Rica is the most biodiverse country in the world. Beautiful tropical jungles bursting with orchids, astounding cloud forests home to monkeys and sloths, and mangrove forests teeming with birds are all within a short distance of one another in Costa Rica.
