Destination Wedding in Costa Rica

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

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.

Honeymoon in Costa Rica Paradise

My Recent Honeymoon in Paradise; Costa Rica is Absolutely Perfect!

Guest post by By Ashley R.

 

Costa-Rica-honeymoonRecently, we took a honeymoon trip the Los Sueños Resort in Costa Rica. My new husband surprised me so many times on this trip that I will forever refer to it as the ‘Trip of Surprises’. First off, I trusted him enough to make our destination plans for us. He is a travel agent so I figured he’d do a better job than me anyway. I had a wish list for the trip and he was able to knock out every item I wished for. I wanted to go someplace warm and tropical. I wanted luxurious accommodations. I wanted to go all out with every amenity you could ask for in a resort. I wanted to take a couple of days to explore the area and see something unique. Mostly, though, I wanted to relax and be completely pampered during our stay.

He made all the plans and I only found out where we were going when we got to the airport the morning after our wedding. It had been a long grueling year planning for the expensive affair and we were worn out from the process. When I heard that we were going to Costa Rica, I was a little unsure of how much luxurious pampering I was going to get there. To be honest, I pictured 2 star little hotels with décor from the 1970’s. I don’t know where I got the image. Maybe from an old detective show I used to watch whose office was in Costa Rica.

When we reached our destination, I was beyond happy with what I saw. A limousine picked us up from the airport and we enjoyed chilled Champaign on our way. The limo was air conditioned, but I wanted the windows down to let in the warm, flowery tropical breeze. I could tell from that limo ride that this was going to be a great vacation!

When we arrived at the resort, the beauty of the setting as well as the Mediterranean architecture blew me away. My boyfriend, oops, I mean, my husband, had rented an amazing luxury condo overlooking the golf greens and the ocean. Check luxurious accommodations off the wish list! Our condo, was a over 3000 square feet in size. We had spacious master bedroom with a king size bed, and en-suite bathroom, and the balcony off our living room had a dining table with an ocean view. There was a gourmet kitchen, fully equipped, which was amazing for pancakes at 3am, but mostly we went out to dinner; there were so many wonderful restaurants to chose from! I felt like a queen.

During our stay we went on a couple of adventure tours into the jungle and also went snorkeling. The wildlife in Costa Rica is amazing. We saw many species that are unique to the area like the glass frogs and glass winged butterflies. Who knew such creatures existed? While snorkeling we saw a diverse selection of colorful fish and even a turtle!

I enjoyed the pampering the most, as I figured that I would. When my new husband told me we were going to spend a day at the spa he wasn’t kidding! We were there for six hours and enjoyed a beautiful light lunch too. I started my spa day with a well-being body massage that began with a dry body brushing that removed any dead skin in order to oxygenate the outer layers of tissue. Then I was ready for the organic black forest mud wrap; a neck to toes treatment that left me feeling squeaky-clean. I had a special Vichy rainforest shower, a facial, a manicure and a pedicure. It was all done with herbal essential oils that smelled divine and left me feeling refreshed. My husband knows how to make a woman feel pampered!
