Saying "I Do" in Costa Rica Just Got More Popular

Destination Wedding – Costa Rica

A recent poll carried out by an Internet wedding site,, found that Costa Rica topped the ratings in Latin American wedding destinations from nearly 3,000 brides surveyed.

As a foreign country, Mexico remains a strong choice for U.S. couples to exchange their vows; however, Latin American countries are beginning to rise in popularity. Costa Rica received 36% of the brides’ votes, with Nicaragua in second place and Belize and Brazil both sharing third place.

1. Hotel Packages

Thinking of tying the knot on a tropical beach? A number of Costa Rican hotels can offer packages to help you plan your dream wedding.

For example, The Four Seasons resort in Papagayo offers a variety of packages with a range of locations, menus and even lighting.

If you are curious about budgeting a Costa Rican wedding, the Hilton offers a 20 guest wedding party for around $5,000, but you’d need to then add the cost for flights and accommodations, although transfers will already be included.

2. Wedding Packages

Tour operators can help organize wedding packages so that you can find exactly the right look and feel for your dream wedding. With two beautiful coastlines, volcanoes, rainforests and mountains, you have a lot to choose from for your photo-perfect background!

Look for companies that offer rental discounts for wedding parties. This can save everyone a considerable amount, so there will be more cash for the bridal dance! They can also help with organizing other necessities such as communication and navigational devices.

3. Paperwork

Don’t take the plunge too fast as eloping isn’t an option! Expect to take at least two months to complete the necessary paperwork for the correct wedding certification.

Most hotels offering package deals include their time and work in helping you to complete the paperwork requirements before you even arrive in Costa Rica.
