Costa Rica | Latin America
For many couples, the lure of Costa Rica is hard to resist - a country rated "best adventure destination" and "top value" by bridal publications is sure to be the ideal setting for those who love the outdoors, exotic locations and delightful fauna and flora.
A destination wedding in Costa Rica could include everything from witnessing volcanic eruptions to gliding underneath a rainforest canopy. With 25% of the country devoted to environmentally protected areas, including national parks, reserves, refuges, marine sanctuaries and more, wedding parties can enjoy a wonderfully diverse spectrum of plant & animal life, with 857 species of birds and 9,000 species of plants, including a dizzying 1,200 types of orchids alone!
Visiting a nation with a 96% literacy rate also has its draw, and Costa Rican culture has a strong heritage of family traditions, gracious hospitality and civil tolerance.
