Costa Rica has a lot to offer, there are places so romantic that just by walking a little between them, next to the love of your life, you will feel like in paradise! Some of our followers have asked us about the mostcto visit in this country and these are the options we have chosen for you:
Sunset in Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a beautiful beach located in the southern sector of the Nicoya Peninsula, quite famous for its waves and surfing atmosphere, but it also has one of the most beautiful sunsets in Costa Rica. Imagine feeling the sand on your feet, while they hold your hand and walk next to the stimulating sound of the waves… You will probably feel a strong throb that takes over your chest, when you see a smile appear on the person’s lips of that you love. This will become a unique moment and a memory that will last for years.
Bajo del Toro, as in the fairytales
This is a small mountain town in the province of Alajuela, completely surrounded by nature. It is one of the places where you can breathe pure and fresh air, the hotels in the area are quiet, warm and romantic, ideal to spend some time alone with that special person and without a doubt fall in love with him or her again.
For lovers who wish to visit this place, the experience contemplates entering a secret forest, with scenarios so magical and impressive that you will not believe it… waterfalls and hidden turquoise rivers that descend between the mountains, paths that will be accompanied by the song of the birds and the resounding of the cicada, the perfect place to steal a kiss and give a penetrating look of those that will make you lose your head for an instant.

To share with that person you love, you could prepare a picnic, cook their favorite appetizers and take it with them. There are also ranches with chairs, places to prepare a barbecue and it is a “Pet Friendly” place.
Cartago, Yellow Flower Mountains
Located in the mountains of Cartago, on the slopes of the Irazú Volcano, is this perfect place to take the best pictures with your loved one, since being in a green field covered with yellow flowers is not the romantic setting that you can find every day. Some locals believe that these fields of yellow flowers are part of the Bosque de Prusia, however this is not the case.
For this month there will be a flower season, which starts from Saturday February 8th and will last 5 to 6 weeks, so you should start planning your visit now. The farm also makes multiple services available to its visitors.

Here you can relax in the hot springs, receive a soothing couple’s massage provided by the hot water from the many small waterfalls in its pools and enjoy a walk in its tropical paths and gardens. If you stay for the night, the dim lights that they light up the pools giving the most romantic atmosphere you could imagine. It is the perfect place to exchange glances and smiles, a few words of love and the birth of a wonderful memory together.
Just a few hours from San José and without going too far off the highway, there is an incredible place next to the ocean. This one seems to be designed for romance. Imagine driving to the rock on a starry night, sitting down to listen to the waves hitting the rocks, drinking a bottle of champagne together under the dim light of the moon that will illuminate your heart.
