This is just one of the reasons why couples who decide to get married here do so with the help of a Costa Rica wedding planner.
Deciding between Costa Rica’s many gorgeous wedding locations is a fun and exciting process, but one that can take time. Of course, the most exciting way to choose a wedding location in Costa Rica is by planning a trip to visit some of the more popular locations, such as the Guanacaste Province and the beaches of Playa Conchal, Playa Langosta, Playa Hermosa, Playa Flamingo, and Tamarindo. Another very popular wedding location is the Arenal and La Fortuna region, located in the central part of the country and home to the majestic Arenal Volcano. Other popular areas are Manuel Antonio and the Caribbean Coast. Visiting any of these wedding locations is a great way to decide which location is right for you, based on the type of wedding you want to have and the amount of guests you plan on inviting.
One of the main things to consider when deciding on your ideal wedding location in Costa Rica is the infrastructure of the area. While many parts of Costa Rica are very develop with solid infrastructure, other parts can still be difficult to reach and may not be right for your wedding. For instance, to reach some of the beautiful wedding locations on the Caribbean Coast, you and your guests will need to take a bus or private shuttle which takes up to 6 hours, or rent cars and drive the road yourself, which can be a stressful experience. On the other hand, reaching the various wedding locations in Guanacaste is easy thanks to the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, the provincial capital of Guanacaste. Here you and your guest will only need to drive for 45 minutes to reach the beautiful beaches of the Pacific and be settled into accommodations.
Accommodation choices are another major factor to consider when deciding on the perfect location for your wedding. Depending on how many guests you plan on inviting, you will need to figure out what type of accommodations are available in the area of your wedding. If you are inviting a lot of people, maybe you want to recommend hotels nearby to the venue. Another great option for you and your wedding guests is to rent houses, villas, or condos in the area. Wedding planners can usually make recommendations of real estate agents who can help get all of your guests situated in houses, villas, or condos close to where the wedding ceremony and reception will take place. Staying in rental houses, villas, or condos is a great alternative to staying in resorts or hotels and can often times end up being a more affordable option.
