Itinerary help for honeymoon


I am planning my honeymoon to Costa Rica for next summer.

We like beaches, adventure and wildlife, especialy Sloths! We would really like to stay in a remote and private treehouse/jungle.

I think we will go to Puerto Viejo/Punta Uva from San Jose on the rafting trip and then go on to the Osa Peninsular and hopefully stay at Bosque Del Cabo.

We were going to go to Manuel Antonio but I think Osa sounds less touristy.

I really want to make sure we make the most of it in our two weeks there, without spending all of our time travelling!

We would like to go horseback riding, ziplining and maybe do some other activities.

Do you think we are missing out if we don’t go to Monteverde/Arenal/La Fortuna?

A friend stayed at Hidden Canopy Treehouse in Monteverde which looks amazing but would that take up a lot of our trip getting there and getting back?

I know you can do lots of activities in these areas – but can we do most of them in Puerto Viejo/Osa?

Many thanks,


San Jose, Costa Rica

If you want beaches, adventure and wildlife you will get all you can handle in the Caribbean and the Osa. Save Arenal and Monterverde for another trip--they offer nowhere near the same level of wildlife (and of course no beaches). They do offer adventure tours like ziplining, but you can find zipline anywhere in Costa Rica.
