Love you to the beach and back
For the beach-lovers, Guanacaste is a dream come true. After a spectacular beach wedding, it is time to discover more of the beautiful beaches that embrace the coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. There are surf beaches, there are swimming beaches, there are bay beaches, and there are open-sea beaches.
Papagayo Golden Palms sits on Panama Beach in the Gulf of Papagayo, Costa Rica´s premier beach destination. Boasting calm, welcoming waters, spectacular sunsets, and sun-kissed days, you won´t have to go too far from the beach to get married or enjoy leisurely while on your honeymoon.
While Playa Panama is perfect for kayaking and SUP, other beaches are ideal for surfing if your honeymoon includes some waves or couple goals. So, whether you are a seasoned surfer or need a class or two, Santa Teresa Beach, Tamarindo Beach, and Avellanas Beach may be part of your love for the beach.
Love is as fiery as a volcano
While Guanacaste may be best known for its beautiful beaches, it is also home to some live volcanoes, bringing fire to a honeymoon. The Guanacaste Volcanic Mountain Range runs along the northern Guanacaste border and is filled with live, extinct, and dormant volcanoes. This translates to an adventurous honeymoon in nature where adrenaline and thrills are part of the fun.
Rincon de la Vieja Volcano is the most visited of the live mountains. Its crater and surrounds are protected by a national park of the same name. It has a variety of trails that will take you by fumaroles, boiling mud pools and steam holes, waterfalls, and different forests that thrive in the altitudes.
The volcano´s slopes are also home to adventure parks, spas, and close-to-nature tours that make for a fun day during your honeymoon. For example, Papagayo Golden Palms can organize a tour so that you can zipline through the forest canopy, tube down a river, rappel down a canyon wall, horseback ride through forest and farmland, and lots more. After a few days of relaxing by the pool, a bit of honeymoon adrenaline in nature is an exciting change of pace.
Papagayo Golden Palms and its event management team can take charge of all the details of your wedding and honeymoon in Guanacaste and create the perfect day for you and your guests. So come to Guanacaste and have the wedding day and honeymoon you´ve always dreamed about!
