Detailed Description

Embrace the spirit of surprise by planning the perfect proposal during your 10-day Costa Rica vacation. Your time together will feature romance and passion as you celebrate your past, present, and future. The journey begins with your arrival in San Jose at Juan Santamaria International Airport where your private driver greets you at customs and escorts you out of the capital city to a luxurious eco-friendly lodge offering a view over the Central Valley. Relax in the comforts of your private suite or return to San Jose to explore the historic city center at your leisure. Your guide greets you in the lobby of the hotel the following day, eager to lead you on an in-depth tour of a coffee plantation nearby. Finish your exploration with a coffee tasting where you will learn about the flavors you search for when drinking the popular beverage.

Your driver meets you after the tour and escorts you to Arenal. After settling into the comforts of your resort, you can bask in the secluded and serene ambiance of the private hot springs. The next day you will travel through the trees, sharing in the feeling of flying on a zip line excursion. In the afternoon, you sample the delicious flavors and seductive texture of sweets on a chocolate tour. You have your first opportunity for a magnificent proposal tonight at the hot springs, featuring a private chef in a remote section of your hotel. The following day, your private transfer escorts you through farmland to the foothills near the Poas Volcano and the brilliance of the La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Visit rehabilitating wildlife and view the spectacular cascades before reaching the luxury of your secluded lodge in Bajos del Toro.

Begin the next day with a fabulous cultural tour of the community of Los Bajos del Toro Amarillo. View spectacular orchids and learn to make delicious tortillas. Continue on a private waterfall hike to visit the three cascades on the reserve connected to your lodge. You have your second opportunity to propose by surprising your loved one at one of the waterfalls, including the final waterfall known as “The Promise.” The romance continues as you travel northwest towards the Pacific Ocean. You spend time rafting on the Corobici River before reaching Nosara Beach. Take the time to relax on your private balcony and enjoy the view over the coastline and mangrove forest.

The next day is at your leisure, and you can take time indulging in the marvels around Nosara Beach. Partake in a soothing couple’s massage or bask in the sunlight while floating in the infinity pool. You can also take the shuttle to the Playa Guiones or Playa Pelada. Search for the majestic wildlife hiding in the mangrove forest the next day, while following your guide on a paddleboard tour. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to relax and relish in your tranquil surroundings. The following day, you mount a horse for a sensational sunset tour on the beach. It is your third opportunity to surprise your partner with a proposal, waiting for the perfect moment on the sand as the sun fades behind the horizon. On your final day, your private transfer escorts you to Nosara Airport for your short charter flight to San Jose’s International Airport where you board your flight home.  To learn more about what to anticipate, consider browsing reviews of our partner Costa Rica travel agents from our other travelers.
