Feel the Love at Costa Rica's 10 Best Romantic Hotels

Costa Rica may well be the hottest, happiest, and most romantic place on earth, judging by its volcanoes, smiles and these ten best romantic hotels. The Playa Hermosa Bosque del Mar is an ideal spot to tie the knot in style: beachfront villas come equipped with plasma screen tvs and jacuzzis, and include the sound of waves crashing on the Pacific coast. The seclusion of hotel Copa Del Arbol in Drake Bay and its proximity to the Corcovado National Park make it ideal for couples who appreciate privacy and the romantic adventure of arriving by small boat, the only way to reach this remote corner of Costa Rica. The Hotel Grano de Oro is a boutique hotel in the capital city of San Jose that oozes romance from its rooftop deck with two jacuzzis and a view of the city to its candlelit restaurant that serves excellent food and exquisite desserts. El Silencio Lodge turns up the romance factor with Egyptian cotton sheets and plush bathrobes for guests- some of its sixteen rooms feature fireplaces, others balconies overlooking the rainforest. Spa Bambu at Florblanca Resort captures the romantic essence with a titillating menu of body treatments that will win your heart.
