Any Suggestions on a Location?
Posted 22 July 2008 - 11:46 AM
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!

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!

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.
