Costa Rican legal requirements

1) color copy of birth certificate - my fiancee lost his also and we had to get a copy from the State of Maine (we live in NY) relatively easy, filled out a form and paid like $15. It came in the mail about 2 weeks later
2) passport - valid for at least 6 months after the wedding date
3) a document stating neither of you have been/or are currently married - we had to go to City Hall and get an "application for license to marry outisde of the US" - or something. That was the only thing that stated we weren't previously married. This was easy but a little annoying, had to go to 2 other offices to get it notarized, etc ...
Hope this helps!

do a web search for him (i don't know that it's cool to plug people's direct websites here).
if you have him do the wedding he'll get around the birth certificate requirements.

Do we need a lawyer to get married? I have my bc as does my FH our passports but I guess we'll have to get something from city hall we haven't been married in the past but who do we submit this too? and how early before the wedding?
I am a little concerned cause this is the first i'm hearing of this. the DWC hasn't mentioned anything to me. well she also hasen't emailed me back either but i guess thats a different story.

The declaration of our single status was required specifically from the lawyer, who is independent from the hotel. He said it is required for the marriage to be legally recognized in the US ... for what its worth.
