              What part of Costa Rica is it? We were in Manuel Antonio/Quepos about 8 years ago - WONDERFUL vacation! Stayed at the Costa Verde hotel and had an amazing time. We looked into CR for the wedding but decided it would be a little too much of an "adventure" vacation for some (considering what we went thru to get to our hotel from the airport in San Juan). I am a little jealous you are headed there for your wedding :) We choose Aruba this upcoming March, and have about 25 people booked so far!

                My fiance and I just got engaged in November. We are planning our destination wedding in Costa Rica on July 29th 2011. We really like Costa Verde and would appreciate any insight you have. Did you like it? Would you recommend it for a wedding?

                 

                We plan to have between 20-30 guests and are looking for information with regards to prices for the ceremony (the beach vs. their pavilion), a small reception (options?), flowers, music, photographer, videographer, officiant, etc. 

                 

                Any help would be much appreciated. We have not actually planned anything yet- just researched alot of locations and like Costa Verde the best, so any insight, opinions or suggestions would be helpful!

                 

                Thanks,

                Kristen

                  Oooh I loved Costa Verde - and wouldn't hesitate going back there either! The resort was lovely, service outstanding, pools were nice and quiet, condos were perfect. We drove ourselves from San Jose to Quepos area and it took a while. The roads arent that great (not that bad) but there was one part of our journey that took us across a small 1 lane bridge that was basically 2x4's. A little freaky. It was worth the adventure, and perhaps the bridge is fixed now! The beach was a little ways down the road from the hotel, so if you want a "beach day" I would recommend driving down and paying the few bucks to park. We walked it one day, while the walk there wasn't that bad, the walk back UP hill was tiring and HOT - plus we didnt pack any water like fools and were so tired when we got back. The Manuel Antonio nature preserve was a great place to explore one day and we had fun hiking around and checking out the beaches there. We did a canopy tour one afternoon that the resort helped set us up on. Some tours only had 5 platforms and the one we went on had maybe 20? I'll look to see if I can find the name of the tour company. Hmm, what else? Went deep sea fishing one day - didnt catch any fish but came across a huge pod of dolphins which was amazing. We found some awesome restaurants when we were there as well. The restaurant that they used part of an old plane was good (think it's on the Costa Verde website). The whole inside of the plane was a bar/dancefloor. Very cool. Also ate at a great place called Chelsea's (?) We were there in March and had great weather. Not sure how it is in July but March it was plenty hot and sticky. Not sure if that will change your mind on location at all but something to consider. You may also want to see when the rainy season begins since, afterall, most of Costa Rica is in a rainforest :) It is a perfect chill spot though. We drank a lot of beers, played a lot of cards and had a great time!

                    thank you so much for all that information!!!! i think we'd still like to visit costa verde someday, however we are thinking of moving our location because of the weather- we heard manuel antonio is humid and wet end of july, guanacaste is supposedly the driest area that time, so we are leaning towards that. thanks so much though!!
