Honeymoon in Costa Rica Paradise

My Recent Honeymoon in Paradise; Costa Rica is Absolutely Perfect!

Guest post by By Ashley R.

 

Costa-Rica-honeymoonRecently, we took a honeymoon trip the Los Sueños Resort in Costa Rica. My new husband surprised me so many times on this trip that I will forever refer to it as the ‘Trip of Surprises’. First off, I trusted him enough to make our destination plans for us. He is a travel agent so I figured he’d do a better job than me anyway. I had a wish list for the trip and he was able to knock out every item I wished for. I wanted to go someplace warm and tropical. I wanted luxurious accommodations. I wanted to go all out with every amenity you could ask for in a resort. I wanted to take a couple of days to explore the area and see something unique. Mostly, though, I wanted to relax and be completely pampered during our stay.

He made all the plans and I only found out where we were going when we got to the airport the morning after our wedding. It had been a long grueling year planning for the expensive affair and we were worn out from the process. When I heard that we were going to Costa Rica, I was a little unsure of how much luxurious pampering I was going to get there. To be honest, I pictured 2 star little hotels with décor from the 1970’s. I don’t know where I got the image. Maybe from an old detective show I used to watch whose office was in Costa Rica.

When we reached our destination, I was beyond happy with what I saw. A limousine picked us up from the airport and we enjoyed chilled Champaign on our way. The limo was air conditioned, but I wanted the windows down to let in the warm, flowery tropical breeze. I could tell from that limo ride that this was going to be a great vacation!

When we arrived at the resort, the beauty of the setting as well as the Mediterranean architecture blew me away. My boyfriend, oops, I mean, my husband, had rented an amazing luxury condo overlooking the golf greens and the ocean. Check luxurious accommodations off the wish list! Our condo, was a over 3000 square feet in size. We had spacious master bedroom with a king size bed, and en-suite bathroom, and the balcony off our living room had a dining table with an ocean view. There was a gourmet kitchen, fully equipped, which was amazing for pancakes at 3am, but mostly we went out to dinner; there were so many wonderful restaurants to chose from! I felt like a queen.

During our stay we went on a couple of adventure tours into the jungle and also went snorkeling. The wildlife in Costa Rica is amazing. We saw many species that are unique to the area like the glass frogs and glass winged butterflies. Who knew such creatures existed? While snorkeling we saw a diverse selection of colorful fish and even a turtle!

I enjoyed the pampering the most, as I figured that I would. When my new husband told me we were going to spend a day at the spa he wasn’t kidding! We were there for six hours and enjoyed a beautiful light lunch too. I started my spa day with a well-being body massage that began with a dry body brushing that removed any dead skin in order to oxygenate the outer layers of tissue. Then I was ready for the organic black forest mud wrap; a neck to toes treatment that left me feeling squeaky-clean. I had a special Vichy rainforest shower, a facial, a manicure and a pedicure. It was all done with herbal essential oils that smelled divine and left me feeling refreshed. My husband knows how to make a woman feel pampered!
