I am researching destinations for my 7-10 day honeymoon in late September this year, and I would like some help and advice on what to do and where to go should we choose Costa Rica. In addition to Costa Rica, I am also considering Portugal, South Africa, and the Florida Keys.
What I like about Costa Rica is the diversity of ecosystems, and accessiblity to wildlife, adventure and leisure. For the honeymoon we are looking for a nice mix of good food, culture, adventure and leisure. Probably more adventure than leisure. I prefer an 'authentic' experience over touristy things. Some things I would like to experience: Go into the rainforest, see some wildlife (monkeys, birds, maybe even cats?), diving &or surfing, horseback riding, fishing. I would also love to see some Sea turtles nesting or hatching.
What will the weather be like in September? Does it differ on the different coasts?
Any suggestions on areas to visit, hotels to stay at, specific places or companies to go for activities?
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
