    Hi All,

    We still haven't decided on a resort for our wedding, but have friends who have heard good things about the Caribbean side of CR. From this forum, I really haven't heard of any resorts on that side. Has anyone been there or had their wedding there? Any feedback would be great!

      Hi kjw,

      I have been to the Caribbean side and I really feel in love with it. I'm getting married there in May. That coast is def more laid back and you won't really find many all inclusive resorts...so it's not for everyone. We are having our guests stay at a few different locations within the same area so we are all within walking distance of one another. If you would like to hear more about our plans or have any questions just PM me and I would be more than happy to share the details. I have done a TON of research on the area!!!

      My guests are excited about the unique opportunity to stay in bungalows in the rainforest, close to miles of natural beaches and surrounded by wildlife. They realize however that the accommodations are simple and are not expecting all the frills. My guests are paying about $550 to $600 per person for airfare and accommodations for 7 nights with breakfast included everyday. They were all very surprised that I was able to make the trip so affordable for them!!

        We have had several weddings on that side of the country (few and far between) but we love the area.
        Here are some of the places we have had weddings at:
        La Diosa in Cahuita (sweetest, most helpful people you will meet)
        Shawanda (own by Mao-she is french, place is pricey but definitely beautiful)
        Casa Viva (right on the beach Punta Uva) self sustained bungalows
        Le Cameleon beautiful new place in Puerto Viejo.
        Cariblue Cocles Beach, very nice, nice venue for reception.
        Azania Bungalows, next to Cariblue, similar set up.
        We have had receptions at Amimodo Restaurant (italian) in view of the famous surf break, great food, great family business.
        Let me know how else we may help.

          We would love to get married near Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica in 2011 and would welcome any suggestion anyone has about where to have a relaxed, no fuss, economical wedding and invite all of the family members and close friends ranging in age from 5 to 72. Love the idea of something that is eco friendly. 


          Thanks in advance.

            Hi there. Welcome.


            Keep in mind that the most tropical part of our country in the Caribbean Slope. If you plan a wedding in the PV area do so in summer (end of aug, sept, oct. Houses in the area are on stlits for a reason, it floods when it rains. When the rest of the country is under the thick of the rainy season, PV is sunny w/ blue skies in this period (end Aug - Oct).


            I mentioned a few locations earlier in this thread, check them out.

              Wow! That is an amazing price. I guess it depends where you were flying out of. Where exactly did you get married? Does anyone know if the Caribbean side is ideal during January?? THX
