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!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
