Any Suggestions on a Location?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

We're planning to wed. Feb. 2010 in Costa Rica, but we're having a difficult time deciding on a location. We would like to be married on the the beach and have our reception on the beach or outdoors. Does anyone have any suggestions?

 

Also has anyone heard of "Weddings Costa Rica" wedding coordinator? If so, what have you heard about them? I feel so overwhelmed at this point! dizzy.gif

Hi there,

 

I was at a friends wedding right outside of Tamarindo in May. It was lovely! Tamarindo was a great area because it gave guests many hotel options and there lots of things to do - many bars and restaurants, shopping, great surfing, tours, central location, etc. They were married at Cala Luna on Playa Langosta, which a lovely hotel. The wedding was on the beach and they had a cocktail hour there as well, until it started to rain (rainy season is in May). Later that evening, we went to Bistro Langosta for their reception. They rented out the whole place and had a DJ and lovely dinner. It was great!

 

Check out their wedding website at shawnandlisa.com. It will give you an idea of what their wedding was like and prices for different hotel accomodations in the area. I'm sure Lisa wouldn't mind if you were to contact her via email with a couple questions. She had a great wedding coordinator there that set up the DJ, photographer, hair stylist, nail artist, etc.

 

And, even more helpful for you to see. I was the videographer - check out the videos on youtube!

Hi there! We are getting married in Costa Rica also, and decided on Cala Luna. I know we also looked at Punta Islita, but it was too far away. I actually emailed Lisa who got married at Cala Luna, and she was quite helpful. it is such a small world! The wedding coordinator she used was a bit pricey. we are using Silvia from Paradise weddings. Let me know if you want her number.

I would love her number, thank you. Are you having both the ceremony and reception at Cala Luna? Do you know what the pricing on the menu selections are? Sorry for bombarding you with questions. Thank you!

Hi! I planning a wedding in Jan 2010 and have been looking EVERYWHERE! One place that I'm really interested in is Villas Sol in Costa Rica. It seem relatively inexpensive for the guests and is all inclusive. I don't know anything about the wedding packages though, I was thinking about contacting them. I also know that they will be doing renovations until Nov. 2009 which means when we get there everything will be nice and new. It also might mean, though, that they will raise their prices.

Sorry, I made a mistake. They're under renovations through Nov. 2008.

 

If you decide to look into this place further let me know and we can help each other!

We just got married on the Papagayo Penninsula in Guantacaste...it was unbelievable. We did it through the Four Seasons and they took care of everything. Married on the beach, rehearsal dinner on the beach, reception in the Presidential Suite, A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and reasonable. If you go through the New York Sales Office you can get lower room rates and request Julia Giannini as your coordinator, she was perfect. Here's a link to our pics....I wouldn't trade the experience for anything in the world. Not to mention everyone there was sooooo nice. It really was great.

We just got married in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica on Dec. 20th. We stayed at the Hotel "Si Como No" and had our wedding on the beach. It was beautiful. Our wedding coordinator, Karen & Erin of Tropical Occasions took care of everything for me.

If your looking for a great photographer I would recommend Lifetime Digital Imaging. They did our pictures on the beach, and reception.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
