Honeymoon Costa Rica

The fly and flop honeymoon is an increasingly endangered species, with newlyweds making the most of their time away to pack in a bit of adventure, an achievement or two and, of course, some well earned time on a beach. The good news is that Costa Rica offers all of the above, and in an itty-bitty little place that’s incredibly easy to get around. Whether it’s wildlife, surfing, trekking, volcano climbing, zip-wiring or a good old fashioned suntan/cocktail combo you’re after, this charming Central American country covers all the bases, with low key and romantic boutique hotels a particular speciality.

Family Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a pioneer of eco-tourism, and a quarter of the country is made up of protected reserves and national parks. This makes it the perfect adventure playground for children and parents alike. Begin your explorations by heading for the Caribbean coast, taking in waterfalls and the world’s largest butterfly collection en route, and travel by boat into the Tortuguero National Park to discover the rich jungle and marine life of this coastal rainforest. Between July and October, sights include the rare green turtle, which comes ashore to nest on the beaches.
