This is indeed the Season. The turkey feast is over in November and it brings upon the magic of the Christmas spirit and the joy of a New Year that is just around the corner. However, we are not talking about that season; this is a less formal one: engagement season!

According to a recent Wedinsights study, approximately 40 percent of all engagements occur between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, with the most occurring in December.

Six of the top 10-engagement dates land in December: Christmas Day is the single most popular day for proposals, Christmas Eve is third, and December 17, 10, and 23 take the No. 7, 8, and 9 spots, respectively.

From adventurous proposals on mountains and volcanos to engagement rings that rise out of the Costa Rican beaches, these engagement-season ideas, display some of the most unconventional ways your next vacation can become an outrageous proposal that promises a resounding “yes”.


A Hidden Spa Proposal

The luxurious hot springs of Tabacon could offer you and your partner one of the most romantic ways to propose. With some of the traditional aphrodisiacs like chocolate-dipped strawberries and champagne, picture yourself and your loved one in a couple’s massage followed by some relaxation time bathing in some of the world’s most luxurious and natural hot springs. If nothing else, the proposer will be seriously relaxed.




A sunny and beachy proposal

For something tropical and fun with sun and sand, a fabulous stay at The Four Seasons would be enough, but instead let’s make it grand with a sunset proposal sailing over the Pacific Ocean on your own private sailboat or yacht, having your ring on board or maybe arriving from under the sea by a scuba diver.




An adventure in Arenal

For the adventurous physical couple, imagine yourselves in a hike around the Arenal Volcano, with the majestic views of the area surrounding you, a unique set up picnic offered by Arenal Springs Resort with a delicious three-course meal, Dom Pérignon Champagne in champagne flutes and a professional photographer to capture the moment.
