Need CR Wedding Location Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

My fiance and I are planning our Costa Rica wedding for December of this year! We are looking for advice on where to hold it. We will have 10-20 people and really want a beach wedding that is somewhat private. We are hoping to find a place within an hours drive of a major airport so people don't have to spend too much traveling. Most people are flying from California.

If you have any advice on a location we would appreciate it! We hope to find a place that is semi-inclusive and a reasonable price. Any thoughts (good or bad) are appreciated.

I'm not sure what you mean by semi inclusive, most hotels in Costa Rica are not all inclusives but may offer breakfast. Most hotels and beaches will be at least an hour or more away from the airport. Your best bet is to fly into Liberia it is the closest to the beaches of Guanacaste. In doing my research for my wedding I found Playa Flamingo, Poetro, and Hotel Sugar Beach to be nice and reasonably priced. I myself have not been to these locations. There are ton of options, lots of hotels great beaches.

dstanley89,

 

Knowing that you're form California I assume that you will want your friends to be close to surf spots.

Your best bet will be Tamarindo - surf out front (45min from Liberia airport).

All-inclusive in Tamarindo would be Tamarindo Diria (http://www.tamarindodiria.com/costa-rica-weddings.aspx). Breakfast included only would be Capitan Suizo (http://www.hotelcapitansuizo.com/index.php?english)or you can look into villas for rent.

Flamingo Beach Resort is and AI option (surf is 30min away) and Bahia Sol in Potrero (http://www.bahiadelsolhotel.com/bodas.aspx)is the not inclusive option but a great place and $$$ for a wedding.

Let us klnow if you have any other questions

try these places

ylang ylang  beautiful romantic, secluded but not so close to airports.

villacascada.com    private villa in ocotal beach about 35 mins from liberia airport

Hilton resort   35 mins from liberia airport

flamingo beach resort    45 mins from airport   beautiful beach

Grand papagayo resort   35 mins from airport in liberia

 

tamarindo beach is not recommended, although it is a surffing town, YOU are going there to get married, the beach is over populated, flat, no texture at all.

I too am considering CR and trying to narrow down a location for my group.  Does anyone know if there are any venues for a ceremony in the tamarindo or Guanacaste areas that could provide a live wedding webcast?

           Hi there, why don't you consider the Jaco area. It's one hour from the San Jose airport. There are numerous beautiful beaches in the area, great infrastructure, and good roads. All considerations here in Costa Rica. Hotel Docelunas in Jaco has hosted many weddings, and has internet speed enough to webcast. You can have the ceremony on their gorgeous grounds, or at a nearby beach.

       Hi there, Jaco is the closest beach town to the San Jose airport, one hour away. Hotel Docelunas[docelunas.com], has hosted many weddings in their beautiful gardens, or at any number of secluded nearby beaches. It's a 4 star hotel that looks like a 5, and is priced like a 3. If you did it in the beginning of the month, I'm sure they will work with you.

Check out El Velo photography, I believe they offer that service. I haven't seen any resorts or hotels that offer that service. I think I saw another photography company that offers live webcasts as well but I can't remember the name.

         Hi there, I don't know any locations in Guanacaste, it's a little remote. The Central Pacific Coast has better infrastructure, and jaco is only an hour from the main airport. Hotel Docelunas has a strong wireless connection and could do a live webcast. It's a small boutique hotel, with room for your group. they have hosted numerous weddings. Check out docelunas.com

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
