Top Ten Honeymoon Spas in Costa Rica
Honeymoons are the perfect chance to take some time out, relax, and enjoy a spa treatment. And not just any old massage! These days, spas offer a myriad of specialty and luxury options for both couples and time on your own.
Costa Rica, famed for green living and the environment, is no exception. In fact, the country offers some truly unique spa options for honeymooners. Here are our favorites:
The Spa at Tabacon
Hotel: Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort, Arenal
Treatments at Tabacon take full advantage of the natural hot springs, featuring hot spring-fed hot tubs as pre-treatments, open-air rainforest settings, and individual bungalows with river-fed thermomineral water.
Golden Gecko Spa
Hotel: Lost Iguana, Arenal
Get a couples massage in front of a crackling fireplace – with the sounds of a cascading river, birds, and occasional monkey as the living soundtrack.
Hotel: El Parador, Manuel Antonio
Enjoy a wide range of individual treatments, or opt for a half-day package such as the Signature, which includes herbal steam room, Mediterranean detox marine polish, seaweed & hydro massage, facial, and full-body massage.
Hotel: Arenas del Mar, Manuel Antonio
The Honeymoon Bliss package will help you get even closer to your new spouse, with a couples yoga class, evening romantic “blissage,” and a romantic dinner on the beach. Add a complimentary guided meditation or mindful breathing session, and your marriage will be off to a peaceful start.
