A few years back, I was lucky enough to visit incredible Costa Rica, and I can say with 100% certainty that it’s the perfect location for a destination wedding. Beautiful ocean views, tropical breezes, volcanoes, cloud forests, and hot springs are always ready for you, and lovingly maintained by the wonderful locals. Experiencing the best of Costa Rica while exchanging I Dos with the love of your life couldn’t be easier (or prettier) than with El Mangroove!
Located on the Gulf of Papagayo, El Mangroove is only a 20 minute drive from the International Airport of Costa Rica, meaning you’re spending less time traveling and more time enjoying your once-in-a-lifetime experience in Central America! El Mangroove offers multiple venues for your wedding, with a variety of beach and forest views to ensure you have just the right scenery for your destination ceremony. Each wedding package includes the ceremony (plus music!), bouquet, floral centerpieces, wedding cake, decor in a range of styles, appetizers, a plated dinner, and a Polaroid camera with 80 packs of film to ensure your best candid moments get captured. If there’s anything you’d like to add to your package, El Mangroove has access to Costa Rica’s best and most trusted vendors, so coordination is a breeze.
You can take your pick of amazing views between the ocean, beach terraces, gardens, beach forests, or mangroves, or take the party inside with beautiful indoor ballrooms with grand windows looking onto the gardens. El Mangroove has two on-site restaurants, one which even has a sand floor to carry the “toes in the sand” theme! Whether you opt for an elopement or a 200-person party, there’s hardly a shortage of fun activities before and after the wedding festivities. El Mangroove offers day trips to volcanoes, hot springs, beautiful beaches, water rafting, and zip lining — all just a short drive from the hotel. Wedding and vacation all in one? Check.
