There’s no better place than Costa Rica for the honeymoon you’ve been dreaming of

The perfect follow-up to the Costa Rica destination wedding of your dreams is a romantic honeymoon at Los Sueños Resort and Marina, a tropical paradise of luxurious comfort. Set against the backdrop of the tropical rainforest, the crystal blue waters of the Pacific stretch invitingly before you in a breathless panorama of rolling surf and swaying palms.

Los Sueños Resort offers the perfect setting for the perfect start to your life together as you drift through the magical days of your honeymoon. You can indulge in a couple’s massage or enjoy time together sunbathing, snorkeling, beachcombing or horseback riding on beautiful beaches followed by a candlelit dinner on your balcony, prepared by a private chef or ordered from one of several fine restaurants onsite.

When you are ready to explore the nearly limitless adventures Costa Rica has to offer, the concierge team at HRG can arrange everything for you. From ATV tours to ziplines through the canopy, there are plenty of options to see and experience the countryside’s scenery and wildlife: Crocodile Tour on Río Tárcoles, whitewater rafting on Río Naranjo (Class III, IV) or Río Savegre (II, III) or hiking through Manuel Antonio National Park.

For pure romance, take a cruise and enjoy the flaming colors of the sunset set against Costa Rica’s pure blue skies while sipping Champaign and nibbling bocas. You can also get up close and personal with the colorful reef inhabitants with a snorkel or scuba tour. Available options for guided snorkel tours include kayak or boat. Sportfishing charters leave the marina regularly; being out on the water is also good way to do some whale or dolphin watching.

Sunset cocktails at the Terrace Lounge make a great start to a night on the town. From laidback hidden corners to the most cosmopolitan dining rooms, there are plenty of choices for evenings out. The resort has nearly a dozen restaurants on site and nearby Jacó and Play Hermosa have even more. You’ll also find plenty of bars, clubs, and late-night hot spots in and around Los Sueños or Jacó for live music, disco and dancing the night away.

Los Sueños includes a private 600-acre rainforest reserve and some 500 single-family homes, condominiums and villas, all designed to highlight the lush tropical surroundings. HRG Vacations has the right rental to make your dreams come true. Los Sueños, an idyllic place for honeymoon romance, makes memories of Costa Rica’s pura vida lifestyle to last a lifetime.

Destination Wedding in Costa Rica

Los Sueños, Costa Rica is the Perfect Destination for a Wedding

bride and groom on beach Costa RicaDestination weddings are increasingly popular, and there’s no more romantic, exciting, or beautiful place for a wedding than Costa Rica. One of the best spots to wed in this tropical paradise is the Los Suenos Marriott Ocean and Golf Resort in Herradura Bay.

Located on Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast, right near the picturesque beach town of Jaco and the surfing mecca of Hermosa Beach, Los Sueños offers dream weddings set against gorgeous ocean and rainforest backdrops, with all the details taken care of by professional planners. What’s more, once the wedding’s over, the honeymoon can begin right away!

Theme

A classic wedding is always beautiful, but if you have a themed wedding in your mind’s eye, Los Sueños has several different options, including a Caribbean theme, a rainforest theme, a Night of Lights theme and an Under the Sea theme. If you’re considering a private ceremony, the “Just for You” package is perfect – the resort will help you set up the ceremony, and provide you with a groom’s boutonniere, a bridal bouquet and photography.

Setting

There are numerous settings to choose for both the ceremony and the reception at Los Sueños. Whether you want an indoor wedding in a truly beautiful banquet hall or an outdoor wedding by the sea, on the golf course, or in one of the resort’s lush gardens, there’s guaranteed to be something right for your event.

Planning

 

Los Sueños has certified professionals who can take you through every single step of the planning process. It’s hard to plan a wedding from afar, and it’s difficult to imagine that everything will go smoothly when you aren’t there to supervise. However, no matter what size or style of wedding you want, the resort’s wedding planners can put everything together for you. They can help you choose a venue, recommend a florist or photographer (they’ll even book them for you) and help you choose a cake and pin down a menu.

Catering

You do not have to worry about whether your guests will enjoy the food at Los Sueños. The resort will customize your menu to your taste and ensure that it’s beautifully presented. You’ll even receive personal attention from the executive chef. You can also look forward to a well-trained and attentive waitstaff to take care of your wedding party and guests.

Extras

The resort throws in a few pleasant bonuses for the bride and groom on their wedding night. Expect to be treated to champagne and strawberries, special amenities, and a special breakfast for two the morning after your wedding.

When you book a wedding at Los Sueños, the only thing you really have to do is decide what your dream wedding looks like, then count the moments to the big day.
