Default Found an unbelievable place in Costa Rica for das honeymoon

http://www.costaricatreehouse.com/houses.html

The Costa Rica Treehouse Lodge is a 10-acre oceanfront property, located inside the 12,000 acre Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, near Puerto Viejo on the Atlantic coast. They only have (4) rental houses. Apparently, you need to book 6-8 months out to get the "Tree House"....so the Beach Suite will have to do. It's 100ft. from the beach, almost completely open to the outside, has one air-conditioned bedroom (Ah....), and an 800sq ft. bathroom that is...uh...completely ridiculous.


Never been to CR before...we'll be there for 6 days, and I'm looking forward to hiking, horseback riding, surf kayaking, zipline/canopy tours, and massive foodrinkery.

Anybody else been to Puerto Viejo area? Suggestions?...

I figure just north of $3500 for the whole trip....we're both looking at this as a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon extravaganza. I, for one, only plan on doing this marriage thing once.

For reasons beyond explanation, the flight (NJ-Miami, Miami-CR) was cheaper than flying from NJ to Palm Beach International. (Just got back from a long weekend...)

Chaalston snob.

"Once in a lifetime" place/lodging, splurge-wise, more so than the CR destination. We've never been to CR, and figured we could do the whole trip for the cost of a flight to the South Pacific. Trying to get the time and money to do Tasmania & NZ next year or so....

I was almost going to ask myself, but wearing a ring while kayaking / boogie boarding in some decent surf does sound like an easy way to lose it....

Yes, the wife and I went there last fall, stayed at Pachamama right down the street from the treehouse place. We had a great time there, did a whitewater trip, sea kayak/hike, zipline, and at the end went up to the volcano at the north end of CR. I would recommend doing your adventure activities with exploradoras, 3 of the things we did were with them and they were great, very organized, very professional. There are several good restaurants within walking/biking distance of there, and even more in town. The beaches are nice, and not crowded at all. Also we were there for 10 days, and probably spent about 2500 total for the run including all of the activities and airfare. 7 days at Pachamama ran $375 for us. Definitely not as built up as the carribean islands, but a lot less expensive as well.
