We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Costa Rica. It’s easy to see why this country would be a wonderful location for a destination wedding for the adventurous couple planning an intimate wedding. If delicious food and natural beauty appeal to you, I recommend you add Costa Rica to your short list of locations to consider.
On our first night, we were welcomed by a private chef who prepared and served us a lovely and decadent five course dinner.
We took a ride on a catamaran. The boat brought us up close with dolphins and allowed us to swim and snorkel with the fish.
We rented a beautiful house with a private infinity pool and amazing ocean views. The concierge service provided with our accommodations made the planning easier by helping us navigate the language, logistics and steep dirt roads. Thanks to Manuel and Paradise Breezes for welcoming us so warmly and providing the perfect home base for our festivities.
We discovered a waterfall in the rainforest which led us to an amazing hotel in the jungle. Oxygen Jungle Villas rests at 9000 feet. The views are absolutely breathtaking and it’s decor is elegant and polished, which is uncommon in the region of the country we were in. We did not have a bad meal in Costa Rica, and while most of the restaurants would be categorized as hole-in-the-walls, Oxygen’s appetizers were scrumptious and plated beautifully.
Our last day was documented by professional photographer Paul Gerace. Thanks to Paul (and Ceasar, of course) for creating photos I’ll cherish forever.
My heart is filled with gratitude thanks to my dear friends. I appreciate all their efforts that went into making this the most amazing trip! While the rainforest and waterfalls were wonderful, it was the long overdue quality time and conversations I am most grateful for. I’ll cherish the memories and laughter always. I also appreciate the husbands and loved ones who made it easy for my friends to leave their kids, get away, relax and enjoy this wonderful vacation.
