Tropical temperatures, rolling waves, the colors of a thousand birds … whether you are looking for a romantic locale for a quick romantic getaway, for your honeymoon – or even for your wedding, Costa Rica should definitely be on your list.
These pictures taken from a wedding right here at The Palms will give show you why Wedding Magazine recently recommended this country of Pura Vida for honeymoons. But why just travel here for your honeymoon when you can get your marriage started right here as well?
Imagine you, your most beloved, and your closest family and friends, surrounded by a clear blue sky, and gently rolling waves with soft, white sand beneath your feet and the sound of birds, monkeys, and other exotic wildlife nearby. Or perhaps you’d prefer to be wed beneath the leaves of a palm tree, or on one of The Palms fine lawns, or even by the pool … whatever the setting, it can be arranged for your event.
Playa Flamingo itself also has plenty of amenities to soothe nervous brides and grooms and waiting wedding parties. Plan a day – or more – to visit Nimbu Spa, where the entire bridal party can be pampered with massages and have their hair, makeup, and nails done for the Big Day. Enjoy an elegant rehearsal dinner at Carlos & Carlos or any of our area’s other fine restaurants.
Then, on the day itself, you can hold your reception to the beat of the waves on Playa Flamingo’s stunning white-sand beach, like this couple did – or maybe you’ll want to go out with Sail Hibiscus for a more quiet, contemplative affair as you watch a Costa Rican sunset on the water.
If sharing adventures is your idea of romance, you’ll have the option to really pull your heartstrings not far at all from Playa Flamingo. Ride some waves with Point Break Surf, or, if you’re in the mood for a more aerial adventure, jump off and ride a zip line with Congo Trail Tours. Adventurous couples have gotten married while skydiving – why not do it just before taking the plunge on a zip line, or on the water while stand up paddling?
Regardless of whether you and your intended prefer sand and sun, forest and shade, a tour through a stunning natural setting, fine cuisine, adventure – or some combination of all of the above – Costa Rica is here waiting to make your romantic event the most memorable of your lives.
