    My FI and I have decided on Costa Rica for our honeymoon but I'm nervous about picking a hotel. I don't know anything about them except a few travel reviews posted on the hotels website. Anyone ever been to Tamarindo? My FI likes this place. Help I need tons of advise!

      I have not spent time in Tamarindo but I was in Manuel Antonio and surrounding area last year and we stayed at three different places just for fun. They were all amazing in a different way.

      Here are the sites. The first is a little B&B called Mango moon. There were some people on honeymoon here. So super cute and lovely. Not super glam.
      Quepos Accommodations, Manuel Antonio Costa Rica Beach Hotels, Costa Rica Honeymoons, Manuel Antonio Hotels, Hotels Quepos, Beach Resorts Costa Rica, Accommodations Manuel Antonio, Hotel Manuel Antonio

      If you want some adventure and love the outdoors stay at Rafiki safari. It's an eco lodge and we both absolutely loved it. Rafiki Safari Lodge, Costa Rica - White water Rafting, Hiking, Birding, and Horseback Riding in the Rainforest! It's amazing.

      Then we finished our trip off at a luxury hotel after all our adventure. We were sore and relaxed here.. Manuel Antonio Costa Rica Hotels, Resorts, Quepos - Hotel LaMansionInn We got a good deal cause it was low season. luxury...

      Costa Rica is beautiful!!!!

        Thanks! My FI read that Tamarindo had good surfing and he wanted to do some surfing. But we are open to anything really. I'll check out the sites you provided. Thanks again.

          We were going to go to Tamarindo for our honeymoon too for the surfing but I can't seem to find any flights that go direct to Costa Rica from Cancun Mexico. Everything seem to be a total of 14 hour traveling time or more. Here is a place that we were thinking about.

          And here is a good link to find surfing places in Costa Rica.

                      14hr plane ride cja? I'm not sure if I would be able to handle that. Our wedding is in Key West so we'll just drive home a day or two after the wedding (only 4 hrs) and fly to costa rica from Ft.Lauderdale. I think the flights just over 3hrs. The hotel you picked is really nice and an all-inclusive! I haven't seen a lot of all inclusives in Costa Rica.
