Honeymoon in Costa Rica!

FINALLY, here are some of my favorite photos from our 8-day honeymoon trip to Costa Rica!

We spent our first two nights in the capital, San Jose. We saw ruins, a botanical garden, and went to the national museum. Driving around was slightly terrifying because addresses don't exist in Costa Rica, many drivers don't follow the rules of the road, and pedestrians will cross the street right in front of you even if you have a green light. We were excited to leave and head to La Fortuna.

In La Fortuna, we were right next to Arenal Volcano for three luxurious nights at Mountain Paradise Hotel. While here, we ate the most incredible food, went zip lining, visited some hot springs, hiked up the volcano, relaxed in our private jacuzzi, and shared a New Years kiss :] My favorite part of this trip by far was waterfall rappelling! It was beyond thrilling and the sights were astounding. Anyone going to Costa Rica has to give it a shot.

We spent two more relaxing nights at Vista Las Islas in Paquera. We swam at the beach, hung out at the pool, and went sea kayaking. Our guide, Thomas, took us on an hour long kayak ride to an uninhabited island to snorkel and hand feed wild spider monkeys!! This might be ranked as the best part of our whole trip. Afterwards we took a ferry across the gulf and spent our last night, exhausted and sunburnt, at a swanky San Jose hotel.

Needless to say, our trip to Costa Rica is probably going to be one of the best trips we'll ever take anywhere. It is a truly beautiful country with the perfect mix of adventurous & relaxing activities. You can see many more honeymoonin' pictures over at my flickr :]
