In today’s installment of honeymoon inspiration, we’re taking you to Central and South America, where gorgeous weather, exotic wildlife and the perfect mix of landscapes (beaches! rainforests! jungles!) await you and your new spouse. Whether you two are the adventurous type or more of a relaxing-by-the-pool-with-a-cocktail kind of couple, these lush regions have something to suit everyone’s taste.

And they’ve got some pretty amazing accommodations to boot: From Ponta Dos Ganchos in Brazil to Argentina’s Llao Llao Hotel & Resort, these 15 breathtaking resorts are some of the best that Central and South America have to offer.

After flipping through that list, however, you’ll notice that eight of the top ranked getaways are in Costa Rica—a destination that local travel expert Jennifer Byrne told us is gaining popularity due to the many new hotels that are popping up there. (She often recommends Costa Rica to newlyweds who want a unique experience without having to fly around the world. I mean, look at that pool at Hotel Punta Islita, above.) If you ask us, each of them looks like a fabulous place to recoup after your Big Day.
