#63 Honeymoon

Oh man, good thing our passports are current...COSTA RICA here we come!

Off the coast of Punta Uva beach is a beautiful tree house in the jungle. The "beach house," as it's called, is less than 300 feet away from the shore. The entire house is built from reclaimed wood in the forest, all very eco friendly.

Jonathan had been thinking about cruises, but after reading many reviews, the food options looked to be marginal. I can only imagine what it would be like being vegetarian. :P

Anyway, a close and awesome friend of ours, Shannon, mentioned that the tree houses in Costa Rica were really cool and reasonably priced. We looked it up and were instantly hooked. We watched nearly every video on the website (including two spots from HGTV: Most Extreme Houses) and loved it. Looked into tickets and found incredibly reasonable direct flights from Atlanta, GA. Fabulous! Well, we both decided to sleep on it, read some reviews the next day, and booked the following day.

I'm really excited. I think it will be a grand adventure sleeping in the forest amongst the monkeys and iguanas. We have scheduled canopy tours (zip lines), forest tours, iguana adventures, white water rafting, and more! I think it will be really fun and special. Neither of us have been to Costa Rica so that's another plus.

Here are some photos of the place: For more info visit


Patio | If you look at that little hole with an X in it - that's the beach. Apparently you can also see the water from the upstairs bedroom.

Bathroom | Glass ceiling in the shower, so you can look up into the trees. :)

Fully stocked kitchen, with beautiful wood I might add.
