It always makes me a little sad when I hear of newlywed couples opting out of a honeymoon because they feel they can’t afford it. I can confidently say, no matter what your budget, there’s a honeymoon which is attainable for you. If you’re willing to do the research and plan far in advance, there are some great deals to be had!
One such deal takes place at the Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens in Costa Rica. Voted the “Most Romantic Hotel in Central & South America” by TripAdvisor, Nayara Hotel is set on 15 acres of lush tropical rainforest. The property has 44 individual, spacious casitas. Each casita boasts its own private terrace, Jacuzzi and outdoor stone shower.
Relax in Nayara’s open-air spa or Italian-style wine bar both set within the Costa Rican rainforest. The entire property has magnificent views of the active Arenal Volcano. The best part of all is room rates start at only $199 a night – making this a romantic, but affordable getaway.
The Romantic Nayara Honeymoon Package includes:
-Three nights accommodation in one of the casitas
-Complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and fruit plate upon arrival
-Dinner at Altamira Restaurant for two nights
-One private romantic dinner at a secluded location complete with your own personal chef
-Couples 70-minute hot stone massage at the hotel’s spa
-A visit to the Eco Termales hot springs
-A hanging bridges tour of the Cloud Forest
-A nature safari on the Penas Blancas River or a Sunset Tour
Believe it or not, rates start at just $1,429 per couple, including taxes. So, take my advice and don’t assume that a romantic honeymoon is out of reach. While your gorgeous destination wedding is unquestionably important, don’t forget to allow yourself time to relax post-wedding with your new husband or wife after all those months of planning!
