We had the most romantic and memorable honeymoon at the Four Seasons Costa Rica. If we were not relaxing by the pool or in our honeymoon suite, we were soaking in all that Costa Rica and the Four Seasons had to offer.
The Activity Beach was so much fun. We became friends with the staff the first day and had a blast trying all a bunch of new things.
- Surf lessons
- Standup Paddle Boarding (Day and Night. Nighttime boarding was my absolute favorite activity we did. With lights on the bottom of the board you were able to see into the crystal clear water. Fish jumped over the boards, turtles floated by and we had lots of laughs when people fell off their boards :)
- Body surfing and boogie boarding
This was the one activity we knew we wanted to do when we arrived in Costa Rica. Our friends at the Four Seasons set up an a once in a lifetime experience for us at Witch’s Rock. Only about a 20 min drive from the hotel, this was a must-do activity if you are on the Peninsula. Since we were there at the beginning of the rainy season, we experienced a few showers. I honestly think it made our time more memorable. You will see in the pictures, the trees are lacking leaves. This is because the time of year we were in Costa Rica. If you were to travel in Janurary or Feburary, the trees would be plush and full of color. Typically, that is their high season for tourists in Costa Rica. During our zip lining day trip, we met a few friends and spent the next few days enjoying cocktails together by the pool.
Let me note that no one go hurt in the process, however there might have been a few tears along the way. After eating more than our share of food during our honeymoon, we (I mean me) decided we needed some exercise. I decided bike riding would be a fun thing to do and hopefully see a few white faced monkeys in the process. Well, lets just say I haven’t been on a bike in a long time and this was definitely not a beginner’s ride. I may have stepped off my bike and pushed it a few hundred feet but we made it through and got to see some pretty neat things in the process including, lots of monkeys, iguana’s and beautiful private homes. I even experienced my first time riding on the sand. If you are planning a trip to the Four Seasons, my advice is to practice your bike riding skills before heading to Costa Rica (just kidding).
Just call me Caddy Schilling. All jokes aside, this was one of the best days we had on our honeymoon. It was the last day and Patrick decided he wanted to play golf. I play, but not well enough to get through 18 holes on an Arnold Palmer championship designed course. Instead, I enjoyed a few cocktails and played caddy to my new husband. Honestly, the views from the course were the best we had seen the entire trip. Even if you don’t play golf, it is worth it to just see the views.
Some of our most relaxing days in Costa Rica were spent laying on hammocks watching the waves crash onto the beach. The Four Seasons has three beaches: The Activity Beach, an Adult Beach and the Beach Club. Since we were there for seven days, we decided to hit up the beach club for lunch and relax at the pool and on the beach until sunset. The views from this beach are incredible and the white sand is beautiful!
The Four Seasons Costa Rica offered so many more activities that we will have to go back and experience. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see the property and hear about our amazing culinary experience.
