It’s no wonder why people are choosing Costa Rica for the beautiful beaches, volcanoes, rain forests and being a part of the natural environment. Often your guests will extend their time and travel before or after your wedding. It’s a perfect excuse for a vacation. Besides our beautiful beaches we also have zip-lining, birding, world class river rafting and even scuba diving. During our green season the foliage is lush and I can almost guarantee little or no rain (for most parts of the country) during January – April on the Pacific Coast. The Caribbean side has less rain in September and October.
