5 One-of-a-Kind Beachfront Vacation Rentals in Tamarindo: Part 1

Tamarindo honeymoon spot

There’s something about a beachfront vacation that feels so very different from a beach vacation, isn’t there? Perhaps it’s the luxury of walking out your door and right onto the beach.

Destination: Green Season? Planning Your Costa Rican Destination Wedding for the Rainy Season

Costa Rican destination wedding tent

In the green season, a Costa Rican destination wedding is all about contingencies and backup plans. Like beautiful, romantic tents and fairy lights, in case it rains.

A Costa Rican destination wedding – there’s something inherently romantic in the thought of it, isn’t there?

You have a wedding vision in mind. Chances are, it includes the melodies of crashing waves and harmonizing bird song. There’s soft sand and cerulean backdrops to your photos. And, most likely, your dream day includes the warm Costa Rican sun.

Aaaand, end scene.

Because, for reasons beyond your control, you cannot schedule your wedding during the high season – during those golden months that all the wedding advice seems to tell you are the “best months.” December, January, February, March… well, they don’t work for your schedule.

And now, you’re frantically googling Costa Rican destination weddings in the rainy season. How much does it really rain? Are we talking a few sprinkles or more like apocalyptic, monsoon-level downpours? Are any venues equipped for the rain? Does everything shut down? Mayday, mayday!

How realistic is your dream of a wedding during Costa Rica’s “rainy” season?

As it turns out, pretty realistic! So, take heart. We’ll help you navigate the path from here to destination wedding during rainy season. No ponchos required.
