Honeymoon Recommendations?

Hello - newbie here. Husband and I want to book something adventurous/romantic for a 10 day honeymoon.

We both love warm weather and warm water - plus horseback riding on the beach and in the ocean. The white water rafting and canopy zipping sounds fun too.


What hotel is the most romantic/luxurious - Peace Lodge? Paradisus conchal?

Are bugs a big concern?

When is the best month to travel to CR?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Go to Bosque del Cabo on the Osa Peninsula. The best run, most aesthetic, and romantic eco lodge imaginable.

Not sure about the 2 places you mentioned, but the sand fleas are insane especially after sunset. The mosquittos seemed to get my wife a lot but it really depends on what part of the country you go to and when. Late November is great because it is less crowded and the prices are lower, but the weather is still pretty good. Best snorkeling is on the carribean, Puerto Viejo, but it is much more remote and poor compared to the paciffic side. It is also more Jamicia/creole decendents there vs the local "Ticos" on the paciffic. Manuel Antonio is very beautiful and there is a ton of wildlife in the park (and even outside it). Volcan Arenal is also a worthy sight and the hot springs there are a must, but it is inland. Your best source of info is the Lonely Planet guide to CR. Everyone had one from every country when we were there.
