Costa Rica has two magnificent coastlines a short plane-ride away from each other. So, it is no wonder the country has become an ideal destination for couples loving beach honeymoons. Although famous for it sun-baked stretches of white sand beaches, the small country has plenty of other attractions like mountaintop views, verdant jungles and volcanoes. Here, wildlife thrives across the coasts and in the lush green forests. Costa Rica constitutes about only 0.1% of the world’s landmass, but it has nearly 5% of the biodiversity in the world.
