    The Dream Wedding Next to the Ocean

    In retrospect, it is impossible to think of a better location to have celebrated our special occasion than in Arenas del Mar. A beautiful semi-private beach, delicious food, excellent service, great value for money. We really had the best day of our lives here and are immensely thankful to the entire staff at Arenas del Mar for all their support. As a Costa Rican born, I know several beaches and beautiful locations across the entire country and can't think of a better one to celebrate an unforgettable wedding than here.

    Stunning! Amazing!

    Arenas del Mar - is the most unique and special place to get married and to also spend your honeymoon all in one! Our Event Coordinator - Elaine Solano was brilliant, from start to finish. She and all the hotel staff, organised everything just exactly how we wanted, with the best service we have truly ever experienced. This is a great example of how smooth, easy and stress-free a wedding can be. Elaine recommended us also an excellent photographer and a great lawyer for the ceremony. She even managed to sow the wedding dress last minute with great skill! :-) If you are looking to get married in Costa Rica- just go for it - you will have an amazing time there!
