Costa Rica Destination Weddings
The first thing that comes to a couple's mind when thinking of Costa Rica is probably Costa Rica honeymoons and not "Let's go get married in Costa Rica." Overall, destination weddings in Costa Rica are becoming quite popular.
One of Costa Rica's best features is the Nicoya Peninsula which brings visitors from around the world by the masses. This 80 mile shoreline boasts beachfront towns, gorgeous sandy beaches, turquoise colored, clear waters, and picturesque sunsets that visitors will never forget. This shoreline is perfect for surfing, but does have rip currents so it makes a better walking beach than swimming. The gorgeous beaches make a perfect destination for newlyweds to have their first walk together to watch the sun set.
Arenal Volcano National Park also attracts travelers from far away. This national park features La Fortuna Waterfall, river tubing and rafting tours, Venado Caves, and natural hot springs. So whether there are members of the group looking to go on an adventurous tour or explore the caves and gaze at the local wildlife, Arenal Volcano National Park has it all to offer.
Costa Rica has more to offer than beachfront towns and beautiful sandy beaches, it makes the perfect destination for a destination wedding. Why have a wedding ceremony then plan a honeymoon after when you can have both the ceremony and the honeymoon wrapped up in one package? Whether couples are looking for a relaxing vacation in a tropical paradise, or are looking for adventure, Costa Rica is the place to go.

A destination wedding can be a much more affordable alternative to a traditional lavish wedding. Many places offer complete wedding packages which often includes an on-site wedding consultant to help you with all of the special details of your wedding.
Another great reason to have a destination wedding is the ability to have a smaller guest list. Instead of planning for hundreds of people you will have only close friends and family who are willing to make the trip out to your destination for your wedding.
Although a destination wedding is a more affordable option for the bride and groom, it does come at a higher cost to your guests. A small, intimate guest list will allow you to share your special day with the people who really mean the most to you.
Many couples who choose a destination wedding, also opt to combine their wedding location with their honeymoon dream. Get married in a stunning location, and then continue the celebrations in the same spot or enjoy the duration of your trip at a nearby resort.
