A Sunset Cruise
Heading out on a tropical sunset cruise is one of the most romantic things you can do in Costa Rica. The salt air, the lush green backdrop, the sounds of the sea . . . it’s a beautiful way to celebrate. One of Costa Rica’s best sunset cruises is the Sunset Champagne Cruise, which departs from Los Sueños Marina and offers champagne and exquisite hors d’ouervres.
A Horseback Ride
There are many places in Costa Rica to enjoy a romantic horseback ride together, whether through the rainforest, over the beach, or up the mountainside. Discovery Horseback Tours in Jaco offers a tour perfect for couples; their Jungle Spa Adventure Tour takes you through beautiful mountain, beach and rainforest scenery to a hidden waterfall. Enjoy your time in the secluded heart of the jungle, and indulge in a refreshing natural mud spa.
A Nature Hike
Whether you would like to trek through remote parts of the rainforest, check out an active volcano, or take a leisurely walk through a gorgeous cloud forest, there are endless places for a private hike together in Costa Rica. You may even find some secluded spots perfect for a romantic picnic.
A Spa Retreat
A delightful spa retreat is never far away in Costa Rica. Located on the country’s Pacific coast, the Los Sueños Resort features two spas, which offer couple’s retreats, complete with couple’s massages and as many amenities as you would like. Don’t feel like leaving your cozy condo? Not a problem; you can ask your HRG concierge to send a couple of therapists your way for a nice afternoon couple’s massage.
A Day on the Beach
From a picnic, to an evening bonfire, to a leisurely, private stroll across the sand at sunset, you have many options for enjoying some time together on the beach.
A Fishing Trip
At first blush, a fishing trip may not seem like a romantic idea. However, chartering a boat and heading out to relax and enjoy each other’s company on the open water may just be the perfect choice for the two of you.
A Sumptuous Dinner
Whether you want to enjoy a four-course meal in a 5-star restaurant, or have your own private catered dinner in your luxury condo or villa, you’ll find a way to have the perfect romantic meal.
