Just Married? Honeymoon in Costa Rica at Congo Bongo

Escape and ...

Congo-Bongo is the perfect honeymoon escape, featuring spacious houses with spectacular views of nature. Manzanillo, one of the most beautiful Parks in the world, offers not only beach and ocean activities, but a great combination of restaurants, rainforest and beaches.

Costa Rica has become a preferred destination for the new generation of "active honeymooners" that want more than just cocktails by the pool. A Costa Rican Honeymoon allows you to combine rainforest adventures with relaxing moments on the beach, all in a safe and luxurious environment.

Explore together!

At Congo-Bongo, we have become specialists in helping honeymoon couples create unforgettable experiences. The private setting of Congo-Bongo Beach and Nature house rentals in its private rainforest reserve within walking distance to secluded beaches and spectacular ocean views is the ideal setting for couples to decompress after the hectic days of getting married.

Favorite activities for honeymoon couples include horseback riding on the beach or in the rainforest, whitewater rafting excursions to the nearby tropical rivers, Canopy tours (ziplines through the tops of the rainforest) and the dolphin watch tour in the Caribbean Ocean.

How about a romantic dinner?

For whatever reason you have come to us here at Congo Bongo, you will find yourself in paradise. Maybe you have come to celebrate your wedding anniversary, enjoy your honey moon, or at least relax and dream away. No matter what, at some point you will be in the mood for some food at a not-so-crowded nice little restaurant - and for that we can highly recommend the restaurant El Refugio, owned by an Argentinian couple.

Spa Retreat

Treat Yourself to a Costa Rica Spa Retreat at Congo Bongo


The Congo Bongo tropical gardens offer a tranquil environment for great relaxation and that's what vacation is all about. We are located in the Gandoca-Manzanillo nature reservate and so nature, flowers, tucans, enormous trees, small rivers and a lush green are dominating features that you will want to enjoy.


Naturally, if you would like a good massage or a soft peeling we can arrange a spa package for you - we highly recommend the Indulgence Spa & Beauty Salon or the Pure Jungle Spa. After a session there you can pop right out on the beach, come back and change for dinner. Life can be so good!
