Costa Rica is a honeymoon hotspot with the Central American country gaining in notoriety as the perfect place for lovers on vacation. There are pristine beaches, lush and exotic jungles, cool cloud forests, and quite a few 5-star resorts, ecolodges, and boutique hotels. Lovebirds can enjoy a romantic escape surrounded by nature, beautiful sunsets with tropical cocktails, and indulge in exquisite Costa Rican and international fusion food. It’s also possible to embark on exciting day tours and receive world-class spa treatments, all from one place.

Tortuga Lodge and Gardens is located on the northeastern Caribbean coast and is only accessible by boat, hosted within the Tortuguero National Park which is home to one of the most important nesting sites of the green turtle and an abundance of other spectacular flora and fauna. Honeymooners can spend their days kayaking, hiking through the rainforest, fishing, diving, or just relaxing together underneath a palm tree with a rum drink (or all of the above). The lodge is intimate, secluded, and perfect for a romantic getaway.
