Brides choosing a Costa Rica destination wedding fast approach their hardest decision: which venue to use. And, it’s certainly not because the country is lacking options. In fact, the problem is quite the opposite. There are countless, beautiful landscapes for the perfect Costa Rica wedding venue.
Some brides may wish to be among our lush, green rainforest for a dreamy, ethereal feel. Others may wish to capture the essence of our “Pura Vida” lifestyle with a relaxed beach wedding. Yet, for those on the fence or wishing they could have it all, there is good news. They can have their wedding cake and eat it, too, when they host an intimate ceremony and/or celebration at a luxury villa in Manuel Antonio.
Why Manuel Antonio for a Costa Rica Destination Wedding
Manuel Antonio is Costa Rica’s most popular national park, and for good reason. The area hosts varied and amazing landscapes, from sandy beach to rocky coastline to vibrant rainforest. It is so exquisite, in fact, Forbes named it one of the world’s 12 most beautiful national parks. But, it’s beauty isn’t its only allure.
Because of its scenery, visitors have their choice of activities on the property. These vary from relaxing –jungle tours and spa treatments, to adventurous – ziplining and whitewater rafting. It’s this bevy of entertainment that also makes Manuel Antonio a first-class vacation (and honeymoon!) destination.
So, you can imagine there are several hotels and resorts offering Costa Rica destination weddings. But, for intimate affairs, brides say you won’t find one that rivals the luxury and elegance of Manuel Antonio’s Villa Paraiso.
Villa Paraiso: The Most Beautiful Costa Rica Wedding Venue
Named a 2017 award winner for excellence by Condé Nast Johansens, Villa Paraiso is in a class above the rest. It sits outside the Costa Rican jungle, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, to provide a backdrop most brides can only imagine. Yet, that’s only the beginning.
Inside this luxury villa, located within an exclusive gated community, brides have access to 8,500 sq. feet and state-of-the-art amenities for hosting a wedding and reception of their dreams. Its size makes it perfect for a ceremony and celebration for 25-30 guests. Yet, for couples who wish to marry on the beach, its location is conducive for a quick ride down, and then back to Villa Paraiso to dance the night away. A seated meal can be served inside or even out on the patio running parallel the infinity pool. Guests love the experience, and brides will treasure the memories and photos for life.
More Benefits of Choosing Villa Paraiso for Your Costa Rica Destination Wedding

And, you get concierge services to assist with your efforts.
