Planning a wedding abroad might sound a bit intimidating at first - you don't know the area, you don't speak the language, you don't know the most beautiful Costa Rica Wedding Venues and you will have sooo many questions about how things work here in paradise.
We are here to help shine a bit of light onto the unknown spots and we'd like to start and share with you the best Costa Rica Wedding venues according to our opinion.
Casa Costa Blanca
This is a beautiful beach front wedding villa inside of Hacienda Pinilla. Hacienda Pinilla is a premier gated community about a 20 minutes drive from Tamarindo. The main house has 6 bedrooms and there is a separate apartment studio above the garage. Those 7 rooms sleep up to 24 people. The highlights of the house are definitely the location directly on a beautiful beach (oh my god - the sunsets are incredible!!), the infinity pool with the hot water jacuzzi and the whole outside area with lots of chillout areas.
This Costa Rica Wedding Villa is perfect for a beach wedding. The ceremony can be in front of the ocean with pelicans and iguanas as your witnesses, and the reception area can be set up beautifully on the sand in front of the house, under thousands of stars. Even during rainy season we can set up on the sand and you won't get wet, pinky promise. We recommend weddings for up to 80-90 guests maximum. The event fee depends on the number of guests.
Villa Tranquila is an incredible mansion in the gated community of Hacienda Pinilla. It is located on the Hacienda Pinilla golf course and offers 8 rooms which are individual suites with their own en-suite bathrooms. Four rooms have each one King bed and the other four rooms have two queen beds each. All rooms also have their own mini-fridge, couch area and even bathrobes. Furthermore, there are two spacious kitchen/ dining/ living areas and a resort-style swimming pool. There are also some bicycles for you to use at Villa Tranquila and this home comes with daily housekeeping and breakfast, lunch and dinner preparation included.
All these features and the beautiful green garden make it the perfect Costa Rica Wedding Venue. Furthermore, it can host up to 100 guests and due to the fact that there are no close neighbours, your celebrations can also go on for longer than in most of the other venues. Definitely an amazing option too! Event fee also depends on the number of guests.
Casa de Luz
Casa de Luz is one of the most famous Costa Rica Wedding Villas. It sits on the beautiful Playa Langosta and is just next to the famous point on Langosta Beach, where many beautiful wedding ceremonies are held. The reception can be set up in the sand or next to the beautiful ozone pool.
Casa de Luz has 7 bedrooms, 5 in the main house, 1 beautiful private poolside casita as well as a casita in the entrance of the house. There is an ample living and dining area, which is a great space for relaxed get-togethers. The sunsets you will be able to see in the backyard or even from the pool of Casa de Luz are breathtaking. You will absolutely fall in love with the views. Casa de Luz is part of a residential community and has direct neighbours on both sides. This is why in this home there is a strict no-noise after 10pm policy in place. We can host a maximum of 40 people for the ceremony and reception on the wedding day and the event fee depends on the number of guests.
Casa Puros Dieces
Another favourite of our guests! Casa Puros Dieces is a very unique Balinese-style home on the hill in Tamarindo. It is the perfect house for all outdoor lovers as it offers a beautiful open air style living space! This home sleeps 20 people in 8 bedrooms and has an incredible infinity pool overlooking the Bay of Tamarindo. There is also a jacuzzi next to the infinity pool. In the back of the living area, there is a beautiful open space with a Koi-Pond and a dreamy daybed. It is just about a 7 minutes walk down to the beach and about 10-12 minutes to town center.
This is the perfect Costa Rica Wedding Villa for smaller and intimate weddings for up to 40-50 people maximum. There is also a strict no-noise after 10pm policy as it is part of a residential area as well. Ask us about the event fee.
Pangas Beach Club Tamarindo
Pangas Beach Club is another great Costa Rica Wedding Venue. As the name already says, it is not a house - it is a world class restaurant on the north end of Tamarindo beach. It is located just next to the Tamarindo estuary and thus offers privacy and tranquility. In addition, Pangas is beautifully decorated, has wooden chairs and tables as well as pretty lighting. A giant laurel de la India Tree is its trademark for wedding ceremonies. Pangas is surrounded by natural beauty - and howler monkeys, colourful birds as well as iguanas are frequent visitors.
The chef will be your best friend - he will only bring the best food with the freshest, local ingredients on your table. A wedding at Pangas Beach Club definitely is a culinary experience too and it has the capacity to host small or big weddings. Inquire with us for pricing.
