When our travel consultant Theresa from Costa Rica Vacations sent me the initial itinerary for our honeymoon trip, I came right here to Trip Advisor to take a peek at the reviews, and am happy to be able to write a glowing one of my own now that we're home! We stayed four nights at Capitan Suizo and found it to be a perfect spot to round out our honeymoon adventure.
-Best sunsets I've ever witnessed from the lounge chairs on the beach just steps away from the hotel
-Delicious food and friendly staff at the open-air restaurant
-Multiple visits from a family of howler monkeys and several iguanas (my husband's fave part!)
-Kayaking out to the little island (and finding an octopus in the shallows!)
-Easy walk to town for dinner or shopping, but located in a quiet, private spot towards the end of the beach
-Lounging with a book - at the bar, in the room, in the pool, on the beach... so relaxing!
My tips include: ample sunscreen application, sign up for a catamaran tour, and watch out for the breakfast-thieving birds, they're cute when they hop on the back of your chair or your shoulder, but you'll be missing that fried cheese they snatched right off of your plate!
Overall a wonderful experience - we've been home less than a month and my hubby is already asking when we can go back!
