On Valentine’s Day, the most common thing is to have a candlelight dinner and give flowers or chocolates, but in Budget we believe that the best thing that can be given is memories. Especially after the last couple of years. So this Valentine’s Day, you and your loved one can make new memories touring Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is a romantic destination itself. Beaches, mountains, and adventures. Imagine a romantic dinner on the Manuel Antonio beach. Or a picnic on the top of the Irazu volcano. Well, in Costa Rica you can live those experiences and more.
Here we are going to give you 5 romantic ideas to spend Valentine’s Day in Costa Rica.
- A beach day.
Can you imagine spending Valentine’s Day on a heavenly beach? Luckily, beaches like this are what there are most in Costa Rica.
You and your partner can spend the day at Punta Uva beach, with Caribbean waters. It’s a virgin beach due to preservation laws. So you and your partner can enjoy nature at its best.
You can also choose Samara Beach, Guanacaste, on the Pacific coast. This beach is surrounded by an immense extension of white sand and tropical forests.
The best thing about Playa Samara is that it’s full of marine fauna, with beautiful coral reefs, so it is ideal for snorkeling and diving.
- A day of adventure.
If you and your partner are those who love adventure, then you will love trekking in the Póas Volcano National Park.
The Póas volcano is active and offers one of the wildest views in Costa Rica as it’s both intimidating and stunning. It also has two lakes at the summit, is surrounded by a dense forest park, and it’s a true oasis. It’s more than a mile wide and more than 900 feet deep but is really easy to get to, with access routes, viewpoints and even a museum that tells the story of the volcano and the national park.
- Dinner with the city landscape of San José.
The Mirador Valle Azul is a restaurant that offers a cozy space, delicious Italian food, incredible wines, and, best of all, a breathtaking view from San José city.
It has outdoor tables, and you can make a reservation in advance.
- Enjoy a night full of stars.
Are you one of those people who asks the stars for wishes? Then you will love this.
Even in a big city like San José, the capital of Costa Rica, you could drive to several viewpoints and enjoy a sky full of stars.
Las Piedritas is a beautiful viewpoint where you can enjoy the city’s skyline and the views of the night sky.
It’s easy to get there, in just a few minutes you can leave the city behind and connect with nature.
- Picnic in Prussia.
The forests of Prussia will leave you speechless.
In the surroundings of the Irazú Volcano National Park, you will find the Prussia Forest. It’s an ideal place to have a picnic and spend a romantic time outdoors.
Grab your hiking boots, put on comfortable clothes, and go enjoy 16 km of trail. The tour is self-guided, wherefore you can do it calmly and at your own pace.
- Bonus. Visit the haunted tree in the Prussian Woods.
If you and your partner are the ones who love spooky themes, you will love this.
In the Prussian Woods, there is a haunted tree. Or at least that’s what they say. The haunted tree is one of the most famous attractions in this place. The name is because once one of the visitors left a figure of a little witch in the tree, and over time, other visitors did the same thing, turning it into a kind of tradition.
Today the tree does not retain any of the figures, although it sure does have a spooky look.
Costa Rica has many more options for you to spend an unforgettable Valentine’s Day.
With Budget you can visit all the places you want, touring the country at your own pace and best of all, just the two of you.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
