    Choose Pura Vida Casas for your wedding!

    There is not a better place for you to choose for your wedding. My family and I stayed for five plus days and it could not have been better. As it is still during the time of COVID and some of my family members are uneasy about travel it was a little rocky getting everyone there but Chloe and Pura Vida Casas made everyone a believer in travel and Costa Rica. The houses are beautiful, the privacy and seclusion you will feel with your group go unmatched by five star hotels. The food was amazing throughout the vacation and for the wedding. Let’s be honest most weddings the food is bad, yet here everyone loved the food! Chloe will go above and beyond to take care of you, we got stranded at the airport, she got us a taxi in ten minutes. Every activity we wanted, she made happen. We had a nurse come to our house to give us COVID tests, she was super nice and efficient. The wedding was more than I could have dreamed in how it looked, the music, how it flowed, everything. I was an hour late to my own wedding, no problems everyone made me feel like a star. Last minute we realized we needed surf boards, Chloe got them for us. Seriously, you cannot do better than this location, you cannot do better than Chloe.

    Great service & attention

    Our stay at Pura Vida Casas was amazing. Chloe, the property & wedding coordinator, provided us with all the information we needed to have our wedding in Costa Rica. She was responsive and organized. When minor issues arose, Chloe was more than willing to work with us and problem solve. She perfectly captured our vision for our big day! We are so happy and grateful that we had the opportunity to have our wedding in the Pura Vida Villas in Costa Rica.

    Perfect wedding in a wonderful place

    If you'll only ever get married once, this is a great place to do it. We were lucky enough to stay a full week at all three Pura Vida Casas with our wedding group. We are so happy we hired Chloe to plan the wedding, as well as do all the photography. This really is a one-stop-shop for a tropical destination wedding. Chloe knows all the best local vendors, services, tours - whatever you need, she can help make it happen.

    The location is picturesque, adorable, classy, eclectic, upscale, fun - I could go on but the list of words to describe how wonderful the casas are is endless. It was the perfect place for our group of fun-loving friends. Each casa has a different charming vibe, with spacious, clean rooms. The kitchens are decently appointed, we actually had a chef with us and he produced an amazing rehearsal dinner with local ingredients for our entire group. There is wildlife all around the casas - our favorite were the macaw parrots.

    It was reassuring to have gated security at the bottom of the hill as well as security guard at the casas. Having Esterillos Town Center at the bottom of the hill is a great thing, there are various restaurants and stores, as well as a small market. The location is somewhat remote, so having these available is a huge help. There is also a larger supermarket 15 minutes away, as well as a 24 hour hospital nearby. We felt like this location had everything we needed. It's also relatively centrally located on the coast, with Manuel Antonio about 40 minutes to the south, Herradia about 30 minutes to the north, and Jaco about 25 minutes away. There's all kinds of tours around the area, and it's easy to get tour busses for your entire group.

    Chloe handled planning for the wedding event and she took care of everything that day, I really respect her talent and thoughtfulness, she is a pro. I literally had nothing to do the day of the wedding, it was all taken care of from start to finish. The caterers Chloe hired for our wedding were EXCELLENT, the food was delicious and elevated, I couldn't ask for anything more.

    The wedding went perfectly, exactly as we planned. We had our wedding at the beach location, and timed so we had photos after the wedding at sunset - it was idyllic. The photos were fantastic, but we knew they would be - we visited Pura Vida Casas several months before our wedding and we got engaged at Casa Exotica and I had Chloe do an engagement photo shoot with us. My wife is a professional photographer so the quality of photography was extremely important to her - Chloe did an amazing job, my wife was totally satisfied with the results and that's not easy to do.

    We will always treasure our time at Pura Vida Casas and we look forward to visiting again someday.
