Sunset Dinner Cruises
After a day of exploring, thrill-seeking, or simply doing nothing, the perfect way to end the day is with a sunset catamaran dinner cruise. As the sun sets and kisses the deep blue waters goodbye, the lake becomes a picture-perfect setting for a romantic meal. Note - there are catamaran party boats during the day if you want to shake things up a bit more!
Surround Yourself With Wildlife
There's something so captivating about watching wildlife in its natural habitat. At Arenal Volcano National Park, you'll find multiple birdwatching and wildlife excursions that put you in the heart of their home.

There's something quietly romantic about the peace of the bird-watching tours as you take in the songs of the birds and wildlife that fill the land.
The Beauty Of La Fortuna
La Fortuna itself is a honeymooner's dream location – the town, albeit small, is packed full of divine restaurants serving freshly cooked food straight from produce on the land. It's situated close enough to explore the capital, San Jose, and it’s in the heart of some of the most popular attractions in Costa Rica.
The Perfect Climate
Lake Arenal has an ideal climate, with winds that are especially perfect for wakesurfing and wakeboarding. Not to mention, they also provide a cooling breeze! The best time of year to travel is from December to May. The drier, warmer months make that refreshing breeze so much more inviting.
Lake Arenal is perhaps one of the most romantic locations in Costa Rica. It has everything newlyweds could wish for, whether that’s relaxing by the lake, thrill-seeking on the lake, or even exploring the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Lake Arenal allows you to tailor your experience exactly how you have always dreamed your honeymoon to be.
