Did that title make you click over to see what this might be about? 🙂
No, silly people, not MY honeymoon, it’s those cute newlyweds, Lauren and Philip’s place in the sun. They headed to Costa Rica for a week after they got married in March and when I saw their beautiful pics, I just thought you all would love to see them too. Am I right?
Lauren and Philip opted for an adventurous honeymoon and they were not disappointed. They absolutely loved it!
This is one of the lodges they stayed during their visit. I think they moved to another place too, later on in the week.
A little massage outdoors, how fun is that?
I’m not quite sure how that bathtub worked, it sure looks like it was open for all to see in, but what a dreamy setting. Oh, I guess you close those curtains on each side.
A little relaxing was in order.
Lauren loves to read, so always has a book with her.
A tropical bed with netting, doesn’t this look like something out of a movie scene?
More relaxing from Lauren.
Check out the bananas, how fun would that be to pick your own each morning?
Saw tons of beautiful waterfalls.
They took plenty of waterproof cameras with them, as well as videos and got some great pics and videos from their amazing trip.
They played in the waterfalls.
Climbed on rocks in and out.
More waterfalls and beautiful views.
So, I have never been to Costa Rica, but these pics give me a great idea of what it is like.
How pretty is this blue water?
The cute couple and their first week of husband and wife.
I’m sure there was some history here too.
I used to love walking on these hanging bridges in NC as a kid. Plenty of them there too.
Checking out the water. I think the water was really cold.
But that didn’t stop them from enjoying it all.
That’s a glimpse into Costa Rica! Have any of you been before? If so, tell me about it.
I’ve never been, but it looks very intriguing!

I went to Costa Rica on my honeymoon, too! It was a total surprise, though. I packed for somewhere warm, not knowing WHERE in the world we were going. Didn’t find out until we checked in at Hartsfield-Jackson!
We stayed in a little town and resort called Punta Islita. LOVED every minute of it. We also rented a car (humorous) and drove to our second destination Aerenal Volcano to stay and visit the hot springs flowing off the volcano. And to see the biggest bugs ever!
Seriously, we wanted to go somewhere that was different (ie, not the Carribean) and it was perfect! Looks like Lauren and her man found out the same thing, too!

I also went to Costa Rica for my honeymoon! It was amazing! We did some of the same things Lauren did, hanging bridges, volcano, rainforest hiking. We loved it! I recommend CR as a great vacation spot for people who love the outdoors. I’m glad Lauren enjoyed it too!
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!! Such gorgeous water and scenery!

love that lauren! her honeymoon pics are fabulous! love the one with their feet in the hammock. will have to call her soon to hear more! i joined in on your labor day thrifty finds this week!!
We also went to Costa Rica on our honeymoon! We started our stay near the Arenal Volcano as well, at the Lost Iguana Resort, hiking the bridges, doing a zip line tour, visiting the Eco Termales hot springs. The second half of the trip, we flew down to the Osa Peninsula where we stayed in the Lapa cabin at the eco-lodge Bosque del Cabo. Here we hiked, zip-lined, rode horses on the beach. My absolute favorite part of the whole trip was the delicious food served throughout the country, whether it be in a resort or at a roadside stand, it was all so GOOD! Pura Vida!

Such fun, beautiful pictures! My daughter is student teaching in Costa Rica this semester and having the time of her life! Ask Lauren if she ever heard anyone mention the satellite campus of Whitworth University.

It seems they enjoyed and had a beautiful and memorable Honeymoon in Costa Rica. Cheers!
What a wonderful and adventurous place for a honeymoon. My daughter went there a couple years ago and loved it. Lauren and her husband are adorable. I think Lauren looks like you!
Vow!! Very cute couple….sounds so much adventure and fun!
My son Jonathan is there now. He and a friend took motorcycles from Arizona down to Mexico and ended up in Panama. They are back in Costa Rica and Jonathan plans to come back to the states for a bit to sell his stuff and he is moving down there to live for awhile. We call him our “Wild Thing” as he never settles down!
Seeing these pictures may make me have to take a trip down to see him when he moves!

My family is from Costa Rica and I have traveled there extensively. I love it there!
We went there in Dec 2004 for my husband’s step brother’s wedding. It was beautiful. We stayed WAY off the beaten path, down tiny winding dirt roads, in a tiny town. There is no way that you can’t feel relaxed in that kind of setting. We loved the vacation!!! Did an eco tour, zip line and lots of laying by the pool and ocean. Loved it!!!

What great shots of Arenal the Volcano, the hot springs, Rio Cesteste and some pretty amazing waterfalls. In Costa Rica a waterproof camera is a must have when you are traveling on adventures. You’ll never know which moment is going to be the perfect shot! Thanks for sharing the adventures!
