In honor of Valentine’s Day this week, Travel and Leisure posted their Top 20 List of Waterfront Romantic Getaways.  Reefs to Rockies agrees that all of the destinations on the list are romantic, but one, in particular, stands out: the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica.  The Osa’s romance can be attributed to the three S’s: setting, serenity, and seclusion.  The three S’s are especially pronounced on the beaches of the Osa.

Here at Reefs to Rockies, we think romance involves more than private walks along beautiful beaches.  Throw in some scarlet macaws flying overhead, humpback whales swimming off in the distance, monkeys frolicking in the trees, and you have the ultimate in romantic, tropical escapes.
