Top Ten Active Honeymoon Vacations

Surfing and Yoga in Costa Rica

7. Surfing and Yoga in Costa Rica
For as low as $120 a night, you can occupy your own bungalow with your sweetie in the lap of paradise, i.e., the Costa Rican jungle. It's a bit of a trek to reach, but remember, this is an adventure honeymoon. Fly from the United States to San Jose, then hop a puddle jumper to Tambor and catch a cab, which will wind its way half an hour through the countryside to your final destination: Malpais. Check into Hotel Tropico Latino, where an array of active pursuits await you.

The remote resort, nestled between the lush jungle and white-sand beaches, offers both bungalow-style rooms and houses with full kitchens. It's also home to Pura Vida Adventures, which is popular for its women's retreats and now offers co-ed surf-and-yoga vacations, as well. You could also consider one of the hotel's own packages, such as its action-packed, five-day experience that includes hiking through the reserve, ziplining through the canopy, exploring the coast on horseback, and, of course, riding the surf. Or if you could do without the Om entirely, head down and hit the surf in Nosara, one of Costa Rica's meccas for those who like to hang ten.
