For our honeymoon we are headed to Costa Rica! We're going to this sweet "eco" lodge nestled into the rainforest on the Pacuare River (www.pacuarelodge.com) that offers loads of cool experiences and great local food (but not much electricity!). Below are a few of the experiences we like the best. Contributions toward these sure-to-be-memorable experiences would make awesome wedding gifts if spoons, juicers, and general kitchen gifts aren't your thing ;) Check 'em out!
Breakfast in the Rainforest Canopy
Known as "The Nest,” they’ve built a platform 60 feet high in a treetop, where we can enjoy breakfast in a truly unique setting. The culinary adventure begins as we glide down a 130-meter cable to the platform high in the branches of a Ceiba: a tree that was sacred to the ancient Mayans. Complete with Birdwatching Tour!
Pacuare River Duckies
We’ll paddle down a stretch of the Pacuare River in an inflatable kayak! We’ll enjoy gorgeous riparian scenery, spot some of the local birdlife, and paddle through class-II rapids.
Massage Treatment for Two
Stress begone! A combination of aromatherapy, a revitalizing organic-chocolate massage and an invigorating scalp massage with essential oils will transport us both to a state of serious relaxation.
Canyoning combines hiking, climbing and rappelling. This adventure includes a hike through the rainforest and exploration of El Tesorito Creek Canyon, where we’ll make several short rappels before an exhilarating rappel down a 90-foot rock wall.
