Make your honeymoon special at Lapa Rios. Our bungalows open to spectacular ocean views, allowing ocean breezes in day and night. Sunbathe on your own private wooden deck, or cool off under a pleasant open air shower. Wander through the many rainforest trails and listen to the natural music of rainforest wildlife. And when night falls, let the rhythms of the rainforest gently rock you to sleep.
Lapa Rios will help you create the romantic honeymoon you have always dreamed about:
Please note: We recommend couples book in January, February, April, May and June or late August to mid-December. These months have few school holidays thereby limiting families-with-children traveling to Costa Rica.
“As soon as we entered, there was a special, magical air to Lapa Rios. We both admire your staff for their excellent jobs they have done and the pride they take in their work. When we first entered our bungalow we were delighted. Every thing we have done and experienced was “muy excellente” from the fine dining (and I can be tough to please) to our walk to the beach or our hike to the waterfalls.
Each activity was so much fun here than it could be anywhere. Even waking up at 6 am was pleasurable since we got to see wonderful wildlife like monkeys, toucans and Scarlet Macaws. We hope to celebrate an anniversary here one day. This place is absolutely perfect and a little slice of heaven. See you soon.”

At Lapa Rios we understand that “one size does not fit all” and would be happy to help you create your own honeymoon package. Just let us know how many nights you would like to stay (we recommend a minimum of three to four nights) and add on the activities that you’d like to try. Choose from surf lessons, swimming with dolphins, wild waterfall hikes, horseback riding, yoga at sunset and relaxing massages with views of the Golfo Dulce and Pacific Ocean. In some cases, we can make the reservation for the activities ahead of your arrival, but in other cases, we recommend you make your decisions upon arrival taking into consideration the weather and your mood. Take a look at our tours and activities page.

Combine your honeymoon in Lapa Rios with other unique destinations in Costa Rica.
Your travel choice will affect the people, culture, economy and environment of the places you and your spouse visit during your honeymoon. Fortunately, there are some easy ways to ensure that the destination as a whole benefits from your visit.
Big budget weddings are out and elopements are in, according to wedding planners across North America. As a destination, Costa Rica has always been on the top of the list for honeymooners, but now Lapa Rios Rainforest Eco lodge is seeing an increase in couples coming to say “I do”, which is why they are offering elopement packages along side honeymoon rates.
What sets Lapa Rios apart is the guest list of howler monkeys, red eye tree frogs, jaguars, two and three toed sloths and over 300 species of wild birds. Because communications are limited—with phones or Internet only available for emergency purposes—couples enjoy special time together with no distractions.
We have heard from couples that a dream to come to a private, eco-resort like Lapa Rios for their honeymoon is no longer feasible if they have to spend big on a wedding. By eloping to Lapa Rios, they leave behind the stress of big bills, and can start their life together in one of the most romantic, exotic, bio-diverse and eco-friendly destinations in the world.
