5 Reasons to Plan Your Bachelor Party at Los Sueños, Jaco Beach, Costa Rica

Make your bachelor party the best that it can be when you celebrate the end of your single days at Los Sueños, Costa Rica.

Posh digs for you and the guys at Los Sueños Resort

You and the guys will stay like VIPs at your luxury condo or vacation villa in Los Sueños Resort & Marina; with enough space for the entire gang, every condo and villa in the resort is luxurious, spacious, and fit for a king and his entourage.

Golfing with the gang

La Iguana Golf Course is a great place to spend the day for bit of a friendly competition among you and your buddies. With 18 holes professionally designed by Ted Robinson you can’t go wrong with this fun and challenging course, it’s gorgeous backdrop of prime rainforest, and the company of capuchin monkeys and macaws.

Sport fishing with the boys

Los Sueños Resort & Marina is widely considered to be the best sport-fishing destination in all of Central America, Mexico, or the Bahamas. In fact, some of the biggest names in tournament sport fishing base their operations out of Los Sueños’ 200 slip full service marina. Whether it’s a half day for inshore fishing, or full day for inshore and offshore fishing, you and they guys will have a heck of a day filled with fun and challenging adventure.  Each sport fishing trip includes a bilingual captain and crew, bait, tackle, snacks, lunch, drinks and plenty of exciting opportunities for a great catch. When the day is done, your concierge team at HRG can arrange for a chef to come around to your condo or villa and prepare a delicious meal out of the day’s catch.

Adventure & Discovery

River rafting, Zipline canopy tours, fast and furious ATV rides; there is no end to the fast-paced adventure that Los Sueños Resort and surrounding areas has to offer.

There is no thrill quite like facing the rapids on a swiftly racing river. Costa Rica’s many rivers offer numerous opportunities for you and your buddies to experience whitewater rafting, whether it is your first time on a raft or you are looking to challenge yourselves on some of the world’s fiercest rapids.

When it comes to seeing Costa Rica’s rainforest, nothing compares to seeing the country’s dense foliage and beautiful wildlife from high up in the trees, or flying through the air over the top of the canopy. Want to feel like superman for a day? Book a zip-line canopy tour through your concierge at HRG.

And, last but certainly not least, to really experience all that the mountains and jungles of Costa Rica offer, there’s no better way than on an all-terrain vehicle, or ATV. Whether you’re on a smooth beach or braving a muddy, jungle trail, these four-wheeled vehicles give you the freedom of a motorcycle with the ability for off-road adventuring.

It’s party time

Jaco Beach is a town known for the fiesta and all the boys will have a great time meeting up with party girls, whether at the local night club, on the beach, or at one of the many Vegas style casinos. Of course, we know our groom will behave himself and admire from afar, but the rest of the gang is sure to have a great time partying it up in Jaco Beach, only to retire back at your luxury condo for a little R&R after a great night out on the town.

 

Forget about Las Vegas or Mexico; make it Costa Rica. Los Sueños Resort is where the bachelor party of your dreams will happen.

6 Reasons to Get Married in Los Sueños Resort Costa Rica

Bride Costa Rica Beach

Getting Married in Costa Rica saves money, creates memories, and delivers so much more than traditional nuptials on the home-front.

Getting married? There is a bountiful list of reasons why a destination wedding in Costa Rica is a great way to go. From surrounding your nuptials in nature, to spending extra quality time with your nearest and dearest, getting married in Los Sueños Resort is full of blissful, nuptial sweeteners. Here are the top 6 reasons we believe your destination wedding at Los Sueños will be the wedding of your dreams:

Less formality, more fun

According to a recent report from Mintel U.S. weddings, nearly 60% percent of couples want to create a fun, relaxing, memorable party, rather than a stuffy, traditional, formal kind of event. “Destination weddings are especially accommodating for couples steering away from the traditional black-tie wedding,” says Susie Papadin of Alison Events. “The majority take place in leisure locations, which are far more conducive to a casual feel.” A Costa Rica destination wedding at Los Sueños Resort provides all the luxury a couple would want for their special day, while at the same time delivering spectacularly on nature, fun, discovery, and adventure.

Shorter guest lists, as well as spared feelings

Most traditional guest lists weigh in at just under 150 invites (that’s a lot of cake!), while destination weddings average just under 50. Moving your wedding venue to Costa Rica means you can send announcements, rather than invitations, with no concern for hurt feelings. Distant relatives, causal acquaintances, and business associates won’t expect to be invited (and may even be relieved!), thus saving you a bundle on food, beverages, party favors, and venue, and also allowing you a more intimate setting for that most important day.

Location, Location, Location: It’s a non-issue

What to do when one half of the happy couple is from Dallas, and the other from Brazil, but both live, work, and socialize in Los Angeles? Families and friends will feel happier to meet in the middle than to travel to the home town of one or the other; and, since all will be traveling to that tropical paradise that is Costa Rica, your event will be as fun and exciting for your guests as it is for you.

Blissful not stressful

When your wedding is a vacation in and of itself, the stress level goes down by droves. Destination weddings, by nature, almost compel couples to let go and let the experts handle it all, but also the relaxed, tropical ambience of a rainforest resort like Los Sueños really gets the wedding party in a laid-back mood from day one. One Los Sueños Resort area wedding planner we spoke with said, “We’re kind of a one stop shop; instead of the wedding couple having to speak to florists, musicians, wedding officiants, and caterers, we take care of everything.” As a result, the couple can sit back, relax, get married, and work on nothing more stressful than their tan.

Quality over quantity

Weddings can be exhausting for the happy couple, and often, they are so wiped out at the end of the day that they barely remember having any fun or connecting with their guests. Weddings at Los Sueños, especially when everyone is staying at the resort, provide for plenty of bonding time, and memory making, within the entire wedding party. In one Mintel U.S. weddings report, experts said, “One reason destination weddings are popular is because they allow the bride and groom more opportunity to truly interact with their guests over a longer event.”

Destination weddings at Los Sueños Resort save money

On average, couples save nearly $2,500 when they get married away, rather than on the home-front. Even better, June (traditional wedding month) is green season in Costa Rica. Everything is more lush and beautiful and everything is also less expensive.   With so many reasons to plan your wedding away from home, who wouldn’t want to plan a destination wedding at Los Sueños Resort, Costa Rica? For more information about having your beautiful wedding at Los Sueños, reach out to HRG’s event experts today. Regardless of whether its last minute (just the two of you), or a year away with the whole gang, we can help you have the wedding and vacation of your dreams.

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.

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.
