Planning a honeymoon halfway across the world can be either totally daunting or totally exhilarating. For us, finding the perfect honeymoon spots in New Zealand and Australia was by far the most exciting part of planning our November 2011 wedding.Lake Okareka Lodge is one of those places we’ve always dreamed about: as we drove down the jetty, through the private cul-de-sac, past the gated driveway, we were greeted by sweeping views of sparkling Lake Okareka.

There was only one other couple going to Monteverde (the couple I mentioned earlier) so we had a plane to ourselves. After a 35 minute flight, we were met in San Jose by yet another excellent CRE guide (who also happened
Our CRE tour included all meals except for lunch the 1st day in Monteverde, all transportation – van, boat and plane, 2 tours at Tortuga and 2 tours and a visit to the butterfly farm in Monteverde.
In the March 2012 issue of Travel & Leisure, CRE was rated #2 of tour and safari operators and all my initial emails to Nadia in CRE’s San Jose main office and mostly good reviews on TripAdvisor gave me high expectations for this tour. I communicated with CRE’s main office quite a few times
