Additional Information

Costa Rica: Upon your arrival you will meet with your Wedding Coordinator to go over all details of your special day. Coordinator will be with you the day of your wedding to make sure all of your needs are satisfied.

Private Ceremony: Ceremony will be performed at your choice of location. Locations available will depend on the size of the wedding party. Your wedding will be the only one on the property for your special day.

Ceremony Time: We normally recommend a mid morning or early afternoon ceremony. However, in the rain forest, it can rain just as easily in the morning as in the afternoon. We will make accommodations if the weather does not cooperate.

Wedding Size: We can accommodate up to 40 guests

Plan a Honeymoon

We offer a unique honeymoon destination where you’ll enjoy a relaxed setting and complete privacy and seclusion in your first days together as a married couple. You might choose to slip away together for a horseback ride, take a tour to the romantic hot springs, or kayak together on Lake Arenal. 

Alternatively you could just unwind by the pool or indulge in a therapeutic spa treatment. In the evenings, enjoy the sociability of dining with a select few other guests or enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner for two.
