Dating in Costa Rica: Where to Go for National Lovers Day
April is here! National Lovers Day is near, and you know what that means?
Romantic vacation time! And where better to go than Costa Rica itself?
Since your girlfriend is from Costa Rica, it would make sense to spend the entire pseudo-holiday with her in Costa Rica. The country itself is filled with many romantic opportunities, perfect for couples who want to take advantage of that.
National Lovers Day isn’t Valentine’s Day, but it’s close. Valentine’s Day is for love and friendship, while this one, as the name implies, is exclusively for lovers. Couples who couldn’t enjoy February 14th because of various reasons can make up for it on National Lovers Day 2022.
Mark your calendars! Lovers Day is on April 23rd. So if you ever wanted to go on a vacation trip with your partner, you better book your tickets now.
But where are you going to go? Costa Rica isn’t exactly a small place. There are a lot of destinations worth going to, lots of scenery to take in, and plenty of restaurants and hotels to visit.
Not to worry. Here are suggestions, all of which Costa Rica prides itself on.
Costa Rica has a lot of waterfalls. Couples often visit them to get a good look at the beauty of Mother Nature. Travelers love going to them, and there’s no denying that seeing a dramatic view lights something in us as humans.
If you don’t mind a good hike to see them, here are famous waterfalls perfect for visiting during this national relationship day:
1. La Fortuna Waterfall, Arenal Volcano
This stunning view sits close to the Arenal Volcano and has been a hot spot for travelers. If you want to get a good view of it, there are two viewing areas that show different perspectives of the waterfall.
Tip: Remember to bring a swimsuit. There’s a pool at the base, perfect for swimming, especially if the hike made you sweat a lot.
2. Llanos de Cortez Waterfall, Guanacaste
This is known to be one of their prettiest waterfalls, and it’s free. There is no need to pay for entrance fee, though they will accept donations to the local community. It’s a simple 10-minute walk from the parking lot to the falls. But you need to be careful because the trail is steep.
It’s surrounded by dense wildlife too. You will probably see monkeys and birds as you hike to the waterfalls. You may also bring your swimsuit here since the pool at the base is clean and clear. There’s even a sandy beach nearby if you wish to have a picnic there while viewing the waterfalls.
3. Nauyaca Waterfalls, South Pacific Coast
This one is known for its location, as it is remotely tucked into the deep rainforest found on the South Pacific Coast.
You have various ways of getting there. You can go on horseback, on foot, or by truck. Once you arrive, you will see that the trail is split into two. The first one brings you to the upper falls, while the other one goes to the lower parts.
The upper one gives you a stunning view. However, it is said that the lower part is where the fun is. There is a large swimming hole there that can cool you off from the hike. You can explore, relax, or swim in the area. If you’re lucky, you’ll witness some brave ones do a dive from the upper parts.
Costa Rica isn’t Costa Rica without its beautiful rainforests. On National Lovers Day, make sure to visit the wildlife and have an adventure with your partner.
Here are some rainforests you should visit:
1. Corcovado National Park
This one is the most remote out of all the rainforests in Costa Rica. It can get humid as the forest accumulates more than 200 inches of rainfall every year, so wear the appropriate clothes.
The rainforest is in the Osa Peninsula, where you have the best chances of spotting wild cats, harpy eagles, scarlet macaws, spider monkeys, tanagers, and tapirs.
2. Carara National Park
If you want an easy and accessible rainforest experience, try Carara National Park. It’s near the Central Pacific Coast and San Jose. It has two trails you can follow; the 0.6-mile Araceas Natura Trail and the 2.7-mile Laguna Meandrica Trail.
Here, you will see all kinds of wild birds such as the scarlet macaws, the two and three-toed sloths, and even the wild crocodiles by the very famous Crocodile Bridge.
Volcano Hot Springs
Here is how you mix adventure and relaxation: Hot Springs.
Costa Rica has an abundance of volcanic hot springs, which the local tourism industry takes advantage of. You can enjoy viewing the wildlife while your body relaxes in the high bicarbonate and chloride (but low on sulfur) water. Here are a few suggestions:
1. Arenal Hot Springs
The Arenal Volcano is one of the most popular destinations in the country for tourists and locals alike. It’s really no surprise since it powers up amazing hot springs nearby. You already got to see the La Fortuna Waterfalls that sit next to it, and now you have many spots to sit in as you soak your body in thermal pools.
2. Tabacón Hot Springs
This one is an eco-friendly, carbon-neutral resort. There are five pools available – which have different temperatures – and you don’t even need to be a guest to enjoy the springs!
Couples can take a refreshing dip in the cold river, the warm pools, or even slide down a water slide. Tabacón Hot Springs is perfect for sustainable travel, especially if you only have a one-day timeframe.
3. Baldi Hot Springs
Baldi Hot Springs gives you extraordinary views while still in a relatively safe area. It’s filled with natural scenery as well as warm and cold pools. It’s a great hot spring destination that offers medicinal spring waters ranging in different temperatures suitable for all kinds of guests.
Travel for love and adventure!
Enjoy Costa Rica on Lovers Day! Spend the day seeing what the country has to offer while also reconnecting with your partner. What are you waiting for? Book your plane tickets, pack your bags, and ready yourself for an adventure.
