Costa Rica has long been known as a top adventure destination. From surfing to hiking and horseback riding to ziplining and white-water rafting, it seems like there is something for everyone who loves action and adventure. But the country also offers plenty of places to relax, indulge and experience some romance with a loved one.
A vacation in Costa Rica can be as rough and rugged or as languid and luxurious as you like. Though it’s been billed as a budget travel destination, Costa Rica has its share of high end resort that offer state-of-the-art spas, gourmet meals and sprawling pools. Spend a day getting pampered poolside or opt for a multi-course dinner followed by an evening in a steam hot spring. Of course, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a romantic experience in Costa Rica.
The country’s mix of high and low (when it comes to budget and style) means you can scrimp in some areas and splurge in others, all according to your taste. So if you consider a beachfront candlelight dinner the ideal evening activity, you’re covered. But you’ll feel equally at home if your idea of romantic bliss is simply chilling in a hammock listening to the sounds of the ocean (and seeing as a hammock was listed as one of the best places to make love before you die, it might be!).
