The Costa Rican phrase “Pura Vida” (pure life) represents a way of living as well as an acknowledgement of the incredible natural beauty that includes rainforests, volcanoes and tropical beaches.
Imagine having your wedding ceremony with the mountains of Costa Rica as your backdrop. Or perhaps being married at sunset on a never ending beach?
Your wedding decor starts with exotic flowers that are grown locally. (This also makes your decor more cost effective!)
The friendly people will welcome you and then provide the personal service that will meet all your demands. Their eagerness to please will have you and your guests feeling like VIPs which, of course, you are!
Whether it’s an intimate gathering or a large affair, there are many first class hotels ready to host your wedding with the charm and romance you have dreamed of. All-inclusive resorts like the RIU Palace and the Dreams Resort are a full-service and worry-free way to go. If it’s luxury you want, say no more, because Four Seasons Resort is the place to be.
There are so many outings to choose from, but consider zip-lining through the rainforest for an amazing adventure experience. Then, try horseback riding on the beach. Finally, relax in the mud baths and sulphur springs surrounded by nature’s beauty and the Arenal Volcano.
Getting married in Costa Rica is easy and requires little paperwork. Civil marriages legally conducted in Costa Rica are valid worldwide, although it can take up to three months for your marriage certificate to be issued, then translated and then sent to you.
The Costa Rica experience will definitely be remembered by you and your guests. Always.
