    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!
