Your Honeymoon is the special holiday you never forget. No matter where you travel together in the years to come the details of your honeymoon remain engraved on your memory.
So make your honeymoon what it should be: unforgettably wonderful. If it’s beauty, luxury, tranquillity and privacy you’re looking for, you’ll find that and more at Geckoes.
Geckoes Lodge has your perfect honeymoon house… Casa del Bosque (House of the Forest) is a house to fall in love with. Situated in a secluded private garden and rainforest setting within the magnificent grounds of Geckoes Lodge, here you experience Barefoot Luxury at its best.
Casa del Bosque is your romantic honeymoon house where the beauty of your surroundings is matched by attention to details. From everywhere in your house you have glorious views and in every area in your house your comfort has been luxuriously taken care of.
Wake to the sound of howler monkeys from your Queen-size four poster bed and open the shutters and doors to the garden to watch the rainforest come to life, lying in your soft 600 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets.
Take a ‘rainforest shower’ in your spacious bathroom with private views of tropical flowers.
Rustle up a tropical fruit breakfast in your fully equipped kitchen and eat out by your private plunge pool…
or at your breakfast bar…or your hardwood table…or breakfast in bed.
Spot the toucans and butterflies from your lounger as you barbecue fresh fish for lunch or hang in your hammock with a good book and watch the hummingbirds on the hibiscus.
If you can tear yourself away from Casa del Bosque there is a wealth of things to do close by. This coast has some of the most gorgeous beaches in the world. Picture azure seas, white sand and waving palm trees or hidden coves with tide pools where the rainforest drips into the ocean.
Feel the soft sand between your toes as you watch the pelicans fishing and the monkeys swinging through the trees.
Whatever your mood on a particular day, there’s a beach to match it. Beaches for surfing, walking, bathing, swimming, snorkelling or just being… Romantic, serene and unspoilt, their beauty changes constantly but is never diminished.
If you need a break from pure hedonism there’s plenty of action to be had! View the rainforest up close as you swing through the canopy, surf the Salsa Brava (or learn how to), take a horse ride through the jungle and/or the beaches, go dolphin watching or deep sea fishing, trek through the jungle and bathe at hidden waterfalls, snorkel or dive the colourful reefs full of tropical fish or spot wildlife from a kayak.
If that’s all a bit too energetic, try a leisurely walk through the Botanical Garden and photograph Red Poison Dart frogs, marvel at the prehistoric Iguanas at the Green Iguana Rescue Centre or go on a chocolate tour to learn about and taste organic chocolate. Or perhaps visit the sloths at the Sloth Rescue Centre, wander through Cahuita’s National Park or simply indulge at ‘Pure’ Spa with a rainforest immersion massage.
And when you’ve watched the ocean turn gold and then silver at sunset, try out one of the numerous great restaurants minutes from your honeymoon hideaway. Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is justly famous for its cuisine and you’ll find excellent restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets. Choose from the famous Argentinean steakhouse ‘Malbec’ or the intimate ‘El Refugio’ or the lively ‘Cafe Viejo’ or the superb ‘La Pecora Nera’ or find your own favourite. (Check out our Restaurant page for a few ideas…).
However you choose to spend your honeymoon, the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica will not disappoint you. Your honeymoon here will be wonderfully unforgettable…and that starts with the ultimate in romantic Barefoot Luxury at Geckoes Lodge.
