*The Groups Plus Promotion is seasonal, starting from 5, 6 or 7 rooms depending on your travel dates. Selected travel dates do not apply, such as Easter week and the Christmas & New Years festive period. All guests must be booked through The Wedding Travel Company, though do not need to book at the same time.

Tie the Knot at Dreams Las Mareas Costa Rica

This resort is a perfect place for a romantic elopement, or a beautiful honeymoon paradise. The resort offers stunning venues for weddings, including two intimate beach venues with dramatic views for unique wedding photography, as well as mesmerising pools for an infinity platform with ocean views, and secluded areas for private romantic dinners for two.

Booking Process & Requirements

To confirm your special day, we'll need to know if you want a legal or symbolic ceremony, as well as your preferred dates, package, venues and party size. Once the deposit has been taken, you'll be assigned a dedicated wedding co-ordinator in resort to go into the specific details of your wedding, such as flower choices, seating charts and music playlists for your reception. Any additional events, guests and experiences you add onto your wedding package, will go through your in-resort wedding coordinator. While you arrange your perfect day, we’ll help your friends and family with their travel arrangements and add them to your party list so you grow your group benefits and discounts.

 

For a symbolic wedding in Costa Rica, you need to arrive 2 business days before your ceremony. For a legal wedding you and your 2 witnesses need to arrive 3 business days before your ceremony. Your arrival day counts as day 0.

 

Should any of your party wish to stay at another resort and only join you for the day, they will be subject to a wedding day entrance fee to be paid on arrival. External guest restrictions are limited to a maximum of 20% of your guests, and entrance is based on availability and occupancy of the resort. Alternatively, guests can stay a minimum of 3 nights at the resort, which must include the night before and night of your ceremony, and then move to their preferred resort. This will not incur a wedding day entrance fee, and the 20% restriction does not apply in this case. These rules also apply to external guests visiting from the adults-only sister resort, Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica, located 90 minutes away.

Legalities, Religious Ceremonies & Same-Sex Ceremonies

If you're looking for a legal ceremony, Costa Rica requires you to arrive 3 full business days before your ceremony. Your legal fees, such as the notary and translation costs are not included in your wedding package, however 2 of the Dreams Resorts wedding packages do include the services of a judge or minister. Your dedicated in-resort wedding coordinator will help you with the legal arrangements. After your ceremony, you will be sent your notarised and translated marriage license to your home address, within 12 weeks. Temporary copies will be given in resort after your ceremony.

 

In Costa Rica, same-sex marriages are legal. This means you can have both a legal and symbolic ceremony in most resorts, and Dreams Las Mareas is one of them. 

 

All ceremonies can be tailored to your religious needs. For a catholic marriage, the ceremony needs to be held in a consecrated venue*. If your resort does not have a consecrated venue, a catholic priest can be brought in to perform a marriage blessing in the venue of your choice.

 

*Dreams Las Mareas does not offer a consecrated venue. However it is possible to bring in a Catholic Priest, to perform a blessing.
