Costa Rica is indeed a fantastic couples travel destination – the list of options for activities, attractions and cultural events is never-ending so there’s always something to do. Head up the coast to Tamarindo & Langosta and you’ve hit Tropical Nirvana featuring dense, lush jungles and active volcanoes to explore and some of the best surfing in Central America.
For South Africans most of Central America is visa free and you can enjoy a stay of up to 90 days in most countries including Colombia, Nicaragua and Panama. My girlfriend and I just got back from 18 months in Central America and cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience it was. Traveling together was an awesome experience we’d both care to repeat very soon.
