Speaking with colleagues recently, we're seeing a lot of 'last minute' wedding bookings this year. And hotels are taking note, many offering incredible group pricing for weddings within the next few months. Costa Rica has some amazing hotels and deals available for last minute weddings – and for any of you brides who are scrambling to move destinations due to health concerns in Mexico, the land of 'Pura Vida' here is a great option.
For example, the new 5 star JW Marriott just opened this February on one of the most stunning beaches in the country as the top two photos attest. First-class service all the way, with fab surfing, golfing and horseback riding all on the premises. There is even a gorgeous chapel (non-denominational) on site for weddings. And, as if that wasn't enough, they're offering a very special low rate for wedding groups of 10 or more rooms between July 1 – November 1 of this year.
Other hotels are also offering super-special rates – we're talking $125 a room in a four-star hotel like the Hotel Parador. In my seven years of planning here, I've never seen rates as low as they are now. With direct daily flights from major cities in North America to either San Jose (SJO) or Liberia (LIR) airports in Costa Rica, getting down here is easy and affordable.
If you're considering a destination wedding in the upcoming months, you may want to check out what Costa Rica has to offer, as I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.
