Throwback Thursday–Costa Rican Honeymoon

Maybe because it’s “cold” here in Arizona (I feel horrible even typing that), but my honeymoon came to mind as I was sipping hot chocolate last night.

We took our honeymoon a few months after our wedding because we had just gotten the keys to our new home three days before we got married; we clearly had a lot of things going on at the time!

We chose Costa Rica as our honeymoon destination because we liked that it had a lot to offer. We could hike, swim, and do touristy stuff in the city. And we could zip line!!!

We spent 4 days there and the first day we went straight to the fun : )

Here I am getting ready…

Don't let the smile fool ya--I was scared!

Don’t let the smile fool ya–I was scared!

This is what awaited me…

um....yeah.....

um….yeah…..

The first time you do it it’s scary as all hell. But afterwards, it’s….freaking…awesome!!!

Now I'm just showing off ; )

It’s definitely one of the craziest things I’ve ever done. Sky diving and bungee jumping have zero appeal to me and not doing them ever in my life would be totally okay. But zip lining for some reason was something that I thought was doable crazy. Like even though I knew I would be terrified, I was curious.

We chose to do the full ride which was 14 zip lines. They happen pretty quickly. After you’d do one, you’d land on a platform to the next and so forth. You get absolutely stunning views. Really though, you wouldn’t catch views like that from any where else.

Afterward, we relaxed by taking a ride through the rain forest. This ride took us high up to the tops of the trees. Again, breathtaking.

The next day we went on a hike and looked at some of the cool stuff that was around.

Finally, we did some touristy stuff in the city:

Traffic and buildings everywhere!

Like our San Francisco trip, my husband and I took full advantage of the time we had in Costa Rica; we don’t mess around! Even though we were crazy busy running around doing stuff, we had so much fun and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way :  )

  1. Oh my gosh that zip line looks so scary – but also incredibly amazing. I agree with you on bungee jumping and skydiving, 100%.
    I’ve never been to Costa Rica, but I’d love to go one day.
    Right now, I’m wishing I was back in the Bahamas. Anywhere warm really 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing! I’ve been thinking about going to Costa Rica this year. I’m really looking for a place to relax, but still have the option to be active. Hawaii is definitely my favorite but I don’t think that is going to happen again for awhile.
