Costa Rica Wedding - Nicoya

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow destination brides --

I am really wanting to get married in Costa Rica and have heard the Nicoya Peninsula is what I am looking for (I want more seclusion and not "resorty". Has anyone here had experience with Montezuma, Mal Pais, Santa Teresa ??? Just wanted some feedback from other ladies before we make any final decisions.

 

Thanks !!! Happy planning =)

I have been to all 3 areas.  Santa Teresa and Mal Pais are part of the same long streach of beaches and more refers to a particular area.  They are fairly remote areas so unless you and your guests are fairly adventurous I would suggest you find another more accessible area of Costa Rica.  We were planning on getting married there but it was too remote for our guest to travel as we had some coming for the weekend from San Jose. It takes a few hours of driving, a ferry and you can fly but you still have to drive on some less than ideal roads.  Also if you are considering getting married in the rainy season the area is virtually inaccessible because of the roads.

 

That being said they are beautiful areas, I was just in Santa Teresa in January and it is absolutely beautiful.  A hippy surfer town would best describe the area.  The hotels, beach areas and sunsets are spectacular.  Actually I don't have a bad thing to say about it, it was great.  They have some lovely boutique hotels in the area that could hold your wedding. 

 

I hope this helps!  Congrats and happy planning!

Hola erinkathleen84 !!!

 

i'm also thinking to have my destination wedding in santa teresa. my fiancé and i are planning our wedding for january 2014 and we have been to all three areas montezuma, mal pais, and santa teresa. here is a website to give you some more information and also maps as well. were looking to have an eco friendly type wedding since we don't care much for the big resorts either. the website shows all accommodations, restaurants and bars etc: http://www.nicoyapeninsula.com/teresa/north.php

 

the dry season months are between january-april and you would preferably need to travel to these areas in the dry season. since many of the tavel needs to be done by 4x4 the ferry also has a shuttle that can transport you guests as well. hope this helps 

 

cheers!

I've lived in Guanacaste for four years and I think you might also like Samara or Nosara. I prefer Samara because it has a good paved road all the way from Liberia Airport (about a 2 hour drive). Nosara is about 2 hours then another 45 minute drive down a dirt road. Both are small, quiet, surfer/hippy towns with beautiful beaches and good surfing, lower costs and low crime. Check out Tierra Magnifica boutique hotel in Nosara...really beautiful spot. I'm a Canadian wedding musician and I've played there before...very nice place.

I am getting married January 2012 in Santa Teresa and the Red Palms Villa.  We are eloping - I am loving the service I hae got so far.  I love it there because they are at the very end of the beach, so our sunset wedding will be just the two of us on the beach.

    • 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?
