Manuel Antonio is an incredible niche of nature on the mid Pacific coast of Costa Rica; several coves of white sand beach surrounded by jungle-covered cliffs jut out to crystal blue-green tropical waters.

Wildlife and vistas are prolific; Monkeys are like cats in Manuel Antonio park; they come up close searching for food, (please do not feed) let you observe them, but never too close for comfort. The rare three-toed sloth is a common site here as well as other tropical mammals that have become accustomed to the visiting humans. The snorkeling is absolutely incredible for water lovers. Experiencing all these wonders of nature truly fulfill Costa Rica as an ideal honeymoon location.
Surrounding the national park there are numerous hotels, cabañas, houses and villas for rent.

There are other areas of Costa Rica that make for top honeymoon destinations like the southern Caribbean coast or the hot springs of Arenal volcano. On the Caribbean you can rent a fully equipped house just a couple hundred feet from the beach. At the hot springs in Arenal there are several spas where you can stay at the hot springs or rent an equipped cabin. Most places provide services to the springs, tours of the volcano and Lake Arenal. These two areas are my recommendations for the side trips within the country. Although, the sunsets at Casa Las Ventanas in Manuel Antonio truly make for one of the top honeymoon destinations in Costa Rica. Click to review rates and reservations.
