Costa Rica is a small country of many diverse regions, each one offering a unique setting and its own sense of individuality. For a country of small size Costa Rica hails 750 miles of shoreline offering those considering a Costa Rica beach wedding a multitude of venue choices. There is nothing quite as enchanting and scenic as the expanse of the blue ocean meeting the sand which accounts for the popularity of beach weddings in Costa Rica. The breath-taking ocean views and pristine expansive beaches lined with foliage provide the perfect natural backdrop for Costa Rica beach weddings.

Many of the most panoramic beaches and most popular beach wedding destinations in the country are located in the province of Guanacaste, on the north pacific coast. These picturesque beach towns not only offer breathtaking landscapes, diverse wildlife and unforgettable sunsets, they also offer many other things which should be considered when deciding on a beach wedding location. For example the north pacific beach towns are easily accessible from the international airport in Liberia. These beach towns in Guanacaste experience the most sunshine and the least rainfall of any area in Costa Rica providing the perfect climate for beach weddings in Costa Rica. Additionally the north Guanacaste beach areas provide all kinds of activities making them not only relaxing getaways but places to find adventure.
These are some of the many reasons we feel the north pacific coast is the ideal tropical destination for beach weddings in Costa Rica. Below are descriptions of our favorite venues.
