Where to Have your Wedding Celebration in Costa Rica?

1) Weddings in Manuel Antonio & Quepos Weddings in Manuel Antonio Beach & Quepos Costa Rica . Manuel Antonio Beach in Costa Rica is your finest chance to see animals up close, plus it possesses one of the mostbeautiful and peaceful beaches in the nation. This is my favourite place in Costa Rica. There are a range of hotels, resorts and eco lodges within Manuel Antonio Beach. Want some further privacy and freedom? Host your Costa Rican wedding in a stunning Villa.  Here are a few suggested venues for your wedding in Manuel Antonio: Gaia Hotel & Reserve (expensive), Arenas del Mar Beachfront (expensive), Hotel Parador (mid-range), Si Como No (mid-range), Makanda by the Sea (mid-range), Lost Atlos Beach Resort and Spa (larger, mid-range). For Villas, here are some recommendations: Villa el Cantico, Punto de Vista and Casa Bella Vista.

2) Weddings at Arenal Volcano & Tabacon Hot Springs in Costa Rica . The Arenal Volcano has a jungle that is also stuffed with monkeys and sloths. Since it’s in the mountain area of the country it has more temperate evenings and less humidity. The volcano itself is spectacular and you’ll have a fireworks show at night since the volcano often erupts at a safe but visible distance. Your wedding guests will enjoy a good soak in the natural hot springs that surround the area. Don’t think swimming pool… think tropical rivers carved into landscaped gardens and deluxe spa experiences.Your guests will talk about your wedding for years to come! Recommended venues and wedding reception facilities for your wedding at the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica: The Springs Resort and Spa in Arenal (expensive), Arenal Kioro (expensive) Tabacon Hot Springs (mid-range), Arenal Nayara (mid-range), Hotel Royal Corin (mid-range), Lost Iguana Resort (mid-range).

3) Jaco, Costa Rica Weddings . Jaco is one of the world’s ideal surfing vacation spots but the area offers much more, including wildlife trips, zip lining, ATV and white water rafting. Jaco’s best wedding location is the well-known Zephyr Palace Luxury Rental Mansion (expensive). However, you can also find many beautiful mid-range venues for your wedding in Jaco, Costa Rica including Los Suenos Marriot Ocean Resort and the Hotel Club del Mar. A little out of town is the beautiful Villa Caletas, which is high on a cliff that overlooks the sea.

4) Weddings in Gunacaste . The Gunacaste area is quite big and encompasses most of the north part of the country. This is a chill place where you can hang back in a hammock and do nothing but appreciate the sea breeze. There are a variety of amazing wedding venues which include all-inclusive hotels making it simple for your wedding guests to have their every need met. Some resorts for your destinationwedding ceremony in Gunacaste include: Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo, JW Marriot Gunacaste Resort & Spa Costa Rica, Paradisus Playa Conchal, Recreo, and Hotel Riu Gunacaste.

5) Drake Bay Weddings in Costa Rica . Drake Bay in the Corcovado National Park corridor of Costa Rica is some of the most unspoiled environment you will ever see. The place has no electricity and the only sounds come from the jungles. This is a perfect spot for an elopement wedding ceremony in Costa Rica. Some hotels and reception facilities for your wedding in Drake Bay include: La Paloma Lodge, Aguila de Osa Inn, and Jinetes de Osa Hotel.

6) Weddings in Tortuguero . Tortuguero is also a excellent location for an elopement wedding in Costa Rica since it’s distant. You’ll also have a chance to take in Costa Rica’s Caribbean sea! There are lots of wildlife in the surrounding rain forest and plenty of excursions for your wedding guests to appreciate. Some hotels and resorts in Tortuguero for your wedding: Manatus Hotel, Samoa Lodge & Resort.

7) Nicoya Peninsula Weddings . The Nicoya Peninsula also offers some of the finest and most serene or even surfing beaches. Nicoya has everything from expensive all-inclusive resorts to small villas for your wedding. On Tambor Beach you will find Tango Mar Beach Spa & Golf Resort (which has been featured on The Hills), Barcelo Tambor Beach and villas include Visllas Vista Hermosa.

8) Weddings in Puerto Jiminez . Puerto Jiminez is a chill town on the border of the incredible Corcovado National Park. The rainforest is filled with wildlife and the oceans are great for deep sea fishing, surfing or just hanging out and sipping a rum punch. A villa rental may be your ideal option for a perfect wedding in Puerto Jiminez. Here are some recommendations: The Fishack Villa, Modern Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.
