Wedding Experience

Imagine a romantic ceremony with your family and friends, or just the two of you, right on the beach at sunset. A crimson sun, the violet-blue sea, streaks of pink and orange across the wide blue sky, coconut palms swaying in the breeze, soft sand, and you and your beloved promising your love and commitment.

Sound like your dream wedding? It easily can be. Costa Rica has become one of the premiere locations for destination weddings in the world, and Santa Teresa Beach on the Pacific’s Nicoya Peninsula is the perfect setting for a romantic wedding. The wide, light sand beaches, abundant vegetation and dazzling sunsets set an amazing stage for your magical moment.


Our hotel offers 21 rooms in total and sleeps 50 guests comfortably. Put simple, the hotel is divided into 11 Bungalows and 2 beachfront houses with 5 rooms each. Typically the bride and the groom will sleep in the Beachfront Suite that is part of one of the beachfront houses, and their close family and friends can be accommodated in the remaining house rooms. Please note that each room is completely private and independent. Other friends and more distant relatives can be accommodated in the remaining 11 bungalows.
