Costa Rica’s Spa Paradise: Volcanic Hot Springs & Yoga Retreats For Honeymooners

Apr 23, 2024

Sometimes, vacation takes us off track: lots of drinking, lying around, and unhealthy eating. But, a wellness-centered resort stay in a beautiful serene location in Costa Rica can be the perfect reset.

Adventure, romance, and relaxation – if you’ve ever been to Costa Rica, you’ll probably agree that these three words perfectly describe a vacation in this tropical paradise. Newlyweds especially will find that its lush rainforests, secluded beaches, luxury oceanfront resorts, and relaxed pura vida lifestyle are the ideal backdrop for a romantic start of the new chapter of their life.

Costa Rica is a long-time favorite honeymoon destination for Americans. The country has set a tourism record in 2023, welcoming 16.7% more visitors than in the previous year, and there is a reason for this. Whatever you’re looking for – exploring the rainforest on horseback, adrenaline-fueled whitewater rafting, watching monkeys and jaguars in their natural habitats, or just sipping a cocktail by a private pool – you’ll find it all in Costa Rica.

If privacy, seclusion, and proximity to nature are what you seek, Le Cameleon Boutique Hotel in Puerto Viejo suggests three unique Costa Rica experiences that will turn your honeymoon into an unforgettable wellness retreat.

1) Soak in volcanic hot springs

There’s nothing better than soaking in a natural hot tub after a long hike through a national park – trust me on this. While Costa Rica has 61 dormant and six active volcanos, one of the most popular ones is Arenal. You can find mineral-rich thermal water pools, which are naturally heated by the volcano, in several locations around it. Stay for a few days or get a day pass at one of the luxury resorts in the area, each with its own unique ambiance, to enjoy hot pools, Jacuzzis, and even waterfalls surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.

If you want to feel more connected to nature, try the La Fortuna free hot springs. It’s not part of a resort – it’s a hot river in the middle of the jungle. The plunge pools around it have water of different temperatures, ranging from 85 to 95°F.

3) Enjoy a rejuvenating massage in your private suite

If you want to take your exotic spa experience one step further, complement your thermal bath with a volcanic mud wrap or hot stone massage. The best part is that you don’t even need to leave your hotel suite for that. Many luxury hotels, such as Le Cameleon, can pamper you with a relaxing and rejuvenating spa procedure right in your room. Finish a day of adventures with a couple’s massage and a glass of champagne by your private pool – now that’s what we call a perfect day in Costa Rica!

4) Do your morning sun salutation on the beach

Yoga is always a good idea. Doing it outdoors – in the garden or on the beach – will make your practice even more beneficial, as the beautiful scenery will engage all your five senses and recharge your energy. Sign up for a relaxing retreat or book a private session for just you and your spouse and let the beauty of your surroundings deepen your connection with your inner self and each other.
