My husband and I just spent our honeymoon at Lapa Rios Ecolodge! Our experience was surreal and a whole other level of relaxing! We stayed in bungalow #14, the honeymooner bungalow, and, while it is the furthest from the dining area and quite the hike, we loved the exercise and nature walk every time we left our bungalow. Everything is lush and gorgeous! The view of the ocean is to die for! We slept like rocks every night and took plenty of siestas during the day. We were prepared for waking up to the howler monkeys, but slept right through them on some mornings. It can't be stressed enough how amazing the staff workers are. EVERYONE was so accomodating and friendly and I was impressed that they knew our names right away. Their hospitality is what makes the ecolodge a luxurious eco experience. We didn't have a single bad meal. I still crave their food now. The hikes are wonderful and the guides are extremely knowledgeable. We went on the waterfall hike and the medicine walk and recommend both! We did the dolphin tour and sanctuary visit, which is extra but totally worth it since you spend the day on a boat, snorkel, and visit a sanctuary to see rainforest animals up close. We had unbelievable massages during which I fell asleep because of the extreme relaxation. We ate a private dinner by the pool on our last night. My favorite romantic moment was sitting with my new husband in our bungalow, drinking champagne by candlelight and overlooking the ocean while listening to the rainforest creatures at night. I can't rave enough about our wonderful experience. It was a rewarding, adventurous and unbelievably romantic honeymoon.
