Costa Rica wedding - Need help!

Recommended Posts

FI and I are considering Costa Rica as a possibel location for a destination wedding. (guest 15 max)

Need help in deciding wich area in CR- Tamarindo sounds good but seems a bit overrun? Considering Carribean side - seems harder to get to??

Ideally would like to avoid the big resorts. Any suggestion on boutique hotels? Looking for something a bit more unique and personalized for guest 10-15.  Are there hotels with access to semi-private beaches?

Any help will be much appreciated!!

The web is your friend.  There are many smaller hotels that are great.  I traveled there recently and loved it.  People were fantastic...I am sure you will do just fine....just go with the flow...Pura Vida.

Hello WaterLili,


Welcome. Costa Rica is full of charming boutique hotels.


Tamarindo does get alot of traffic but it also has lots to do for your guests. You can have you wedding near Tamarindo.

Bahia Sol is 20 min form Tama on a quieter beach. It is ideal for a wedding your size. The set up is easy. Here are a few weddings we recently had there, talk to Roxana, she is a sweetie!






Sugar Beach is a more private option. The beach is between to rocky points offering complete privacy. Sugar Beach is about 30 min from Tamarindo.


You can also rent a villa and have your wedding in Langosta (adjacent to Tama but queiter). Cala Luna Point is quite intimate. These weddings are from villas next to each other:

Villa Marrakech:



Casa de Las Tortugas:


Casa de Los Olivos:



There is also Hacienda Pinilla (private entrance, therefore private beach:






The Caribbean side of CR. Keep in mid weather, this is what I always advise. Not too hard to get to, 3 1/2 hours to get to. It is really wet and the only time is is sunny, beautiful with calm seas is in Sept & Oct. Good Calypso bands, good food! Our favorites:

Casa Viva

Le Camaleon (brand new)


La Diosa


Azania Bungalows

Let us know if you want more info on them. Let us know if you need any other info on CR!!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
