Costa Rica Honeymoon May 2018

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

My fiance and I have started planning our honeymoon for May 2018. We initially were thinking St. Lucia but now think it may push us a bit past our budget. We really want a good mix of nature/outdoors activities and relaxation by the beach, so I am thinking Costa Rica may be a hit. We are flying out of NYC and our budget is 6k for everything (airfare, food, excursions, etc.), for hopefully 7 nights, 8 if we can swing it. I have been speaking to a wonderful travel agency (I know it's 2017 but they make it so much easier!), and are looking into a package that combines the Arenal area (Nayara hotel) and Guanacaste (Westin Playa Conchal). Has anyone been to these hotels? I know the Nayara hotel gets amazing reviews but am a little nervous about the Westin. Some of the mixed reviews I've read state that the beach is not that great (I know the beaches aren't going to have white sand/crystal water, but I would still like a decent beach!), and that resort is kind of massive- too big. Does anyone have any other suggestions for good beach resorts? I'd like it to be AI just because the first hotel won't be, so it'll be nice to have that convenience. Any suggestions for excursions in these areas or general tips? Thanks so much!!
