Trek the Rainforests of Costa Rica

Despite its immense popularity, Costa Rica is still rather unspoiled, boasting stunning rainforests and exotic landscapes that make for a superb lovers’ getaway. There are so many romantic things to see and do in Costa Rica that it's hard to know where to start, but be sure to include at least a few of the following: a trip to the Irazu and Poas volcanoes, the La Paz Waterfall and Butterfly Gardens or a tour through the Braulio Carillo National Park. Bond with your loved one as you zip-line through the rainforest or take a rafting trip. Only in Costa Rica can you see big cats in Corcovado National Park, monkeys and turtles in Tortuguero or oodles of orchids in the Monteverde Cloud Forest.
