Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
Costa Rica's lush landscapes and amazing outdoor excursions make it a popular destination for a wide variety of travelers. But for couples especially, there are few locales better-suited to accommodate those looking for a romantic adventure. And for an intimate stay in this Central American country, duos should check out these romantic boutiques: Lapa Rios, located in the remote coastal rainforests of the Osa Peninsula, is Costa Rica’s original luxury eco lodge. Couples come to the upscale Lapa Rios to enjoy the spectacular surroundings, learn about sustainable tourism, and re-connect with nature. The 16-bungalow lodge sits amid 1,000 acres of rainforest filled with wildlife, but it's far from a no-frills jungle camp. There are many comforts here, including a pool overlooking the ocean, a splendid restaurant serving sumptuous cuisine, and rustic-luxe rooms with private decks. This is a place to get in touch with nature without roughing it.
