If you are planning a Costa Rica honeymoon or anniversary, then you have come to the right place!
Costa Rica is a large country with a couple airport options, and multiple cities with beautiful scenery, activities, and resorts.
This itinerary is built specifically with honeymoons and anniversaries in mind to give the perfect balance of adventure and relaxation. This itinerary one week, but if you have more time, you may be able to extend your stay and experience more sights and/or cities.
So, let’s get to it – We suggest a split stay with half near Arenal Volcano and half on Papagayo Beach.
COSTA RICA HONEYMOON PACKAGE
ROUND TRIP FLIGHTS + 3 NIGHTS NEAR ARENAL + 3 NIGHTS AT SECRETS ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT
3 NIGHTS NEAR ARENAL VOLCANO
Location: Near Arenal Natural Ecological Park (2.5 – 3 hours from SJO or LIR airport)
Staying near Arenal is a must during your stay in Costa Rica. You will travel 2.5 – 3 hours from the airport to get inland near Arenal, but it is well worth it. We recommend transportation arrangements made prior to travel, and we do not recommend getting a car rental unless you know the area well. Arenal will offer a lot of sightseeing and activities within short distances, so you will not need to do extensive traveling once stationed there.
TOP RESORT PICKS:
- THE SPRINGS RESORT & SPA (5-Star Resort)
- NAYARA RESORT & SPA (Romantic Suite Options)
- CASA LUNA HOTEL & SPA (Budget Friendly Option)
After a few nights near Arenal, take a transfer from resort near Arenal to Papagayo Beach located on the coast in Guanacaste (about 2.5 – 3 hours)
3 NIGHTS ON PAPAGAYO BEACH
Secrets Papagayo Resort & Spa – All Inclusive Resort
Location: Guanacaste (Only 25 minutes to the LIR airport)
A little something special Secrets Papagayo offers for honeymoons and anniversaries:
Complimentary Newlywed Package (Welcome letter, Fresh fruit, Bottle of sparkling wine, Special turn down service, Breakfast in bed with Mimosas (Reservationsmust be made in advance with concierge), & 15% discount on all spa treatments.

At the end of your stay at Secrets Papagayo, you will take your transfer back to LIR airport (about 25 minutes).
When planning your flights to Costa Rica, it is important to note which airport you will be flying in/out of. The 2 international airports are San Jose (SJO) and Liberia (LIR). For this 7 day itinerary, the arrival flight to Costa Rica can be either airport SJO or LIR.For the return flight, you will definitely want to leave out of LIR if you are staying at Secrets Papagayo Resort & Spa.
