Seeking Costa Rica Venues

Recommended Posts

ShanelleLoraine, Thank you SO much for all of your help! I'm going to look into all of those places! How long did your guests stay for on average? How long did you and your husband stay for? Had you guys visited Costa Rica before? Neither of us have ever been. I just saw the Zephyr palace online and fell in love!

No problem whatsoever, happy to help! Neither of us had ever been before we choose CR. So, we decided to take a weekend scouting trip about a year prior to our date.  We planned to stay at our top 2 choices for venues and visit about 3 others along the way. We stayed at Hotel Parador in Manuel Antonio which was absolutely gorgeous. The only negative about this hotel is that they did not have an air conditioned reception area. Beautiful nonetheless. We actually did not plan to stay at Villa Caletas but, as soon as we got there we knew it was 'the one'. From the drive up to every corner we turned when touring the grounds, it was more and more amazing. We canceled our reservation and stayed in the last room they had available. I'm normally not one to talk up a restaurant, place or hotel but this place really is romantic and magical. 

 

We arrived on a Tuesday, some guests arrived on Wednesday and most guests arrived on Thursday. The majority of everyone left late Sunday after brunch. We left on Monday and went to Rio Celeste. I do recommend the company that helped plan our honeymoon. They arranged everyones transport to and from the airport, tours, honeymoon hotels as well as our private transport for the honeymoon. The drivers were so friendly and knowledgable (told us about so much along the way). Unfortunately, I do not have the name of the company at this time... I will find it ;). Altogether we stayed about 2 weeks.

I just now found this, if you would like to see pics of our wedding at the Zephyr Palace check out ElVelophotography.com we are in Gallery I under Shanelle and Andrew. They also have a section for locations, that might help with your decision in venues. Good Luck!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
