My fiance and I are planning to be married next January in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, where his father and step-mother live most of the year. We have been to visit and we have his step-mother's help in checking places out for us, so we're trying to get by without a wedding planner. We are planning a very small wedding with just immediate family. We would welcome any suggestions from anyone who has been or is planning to be married in the Tamarindo area. We're looking for a vacation rental home, an officiant, a caterer, a photographer, a place to buy flowers (my mom will make my bouquet), and someone to do my hair and make-up.
