One advantage of hosting your wedding and reception at Villa Punto de Vista and Villa La Isla is that we can accommodate all your closest family members and friends. Our 18 bedrooms can host an overnight total of 50 guests. Our brand-new, fully staffed Villa La Isla eight-bedroom villa is perfect for intimate stays with your immediate family or wedding party. This serene space offers privacy, while still keeping you only steps away from amenities, guests and, of course, our stunning beach and rainforest!

Villa Punto de Vista Rooftop Deck

Say “I do” high above the rainforest canopy at our Villa Punto de Vista rooftop deck. This floor on the fifth story features private views of the ocean and jungle below, giving your guests a scenic backdrop unlike any other. This space features a tent, which will perfectly protect your ceremony should a storm roll through.

If your wedding guests want to take their vacation to new heights, we invite them to join us on excursions off the property. Our ATV and mountain biking tours provide thrill-seekers with an exclusive adventure through Manuel Antonio.

Ballroom at Villa Punto de Vista

When choosing between large wedding venues in Costa Rica, we believe you deserve to have every detail of your dream realized. Our ballroom is an extraordinary space where you and your guests will drink, dine and dance the night away on inlaid teak floors beneath lofted ceilings. A full-service bar and live band will keep the party in full swing for as many as 100 guests.

We’re here to make your destination wedding as spectacular as possible. The concierge and staff at Villa Punto de Vista and Villa La Isla offer personalized attention from before you arrive until the moment you head home. They’ll handle pre-arrival arrangements like planning the wedding, booking hotels for large groups, securing transportation to the venue and scheduling exciting excursions so you can explore Costa Rica before and after your wedding day.

Villa Punto de Vista Events Terrace

As an ideal option for those who want a space more formal than the rooftop deck, but a little more relaxed than the ballroom, our events terrace provides an elegant balance of romance and excitement. This spacious terrace attached to our professional kitchen and full-sized bar offers stunning views for your reception or cocktail hour.

Beach and Rainforest

There’s nothing quite like a beach wedding. The sand, the sun and the surf all combine to create the perfect backdrop for you to exchange your vows. Villa Punto de Vista and Villa La Isla sit just above the stunning golden sand beaches of Manuel Antonio Bay, one of the top-rated beaches in the world. As you and your loved ones stand between the rainforest and the sea, every photo will capture a moment in paradise.

As one of the large wedding venues in Costa Rica, we can accommodate up to 120 guests for your ceremony, filling our private sandy shore with those who mean the most to you. After you and your partner exchange vows, you and your guests will enjoy a tailor-made reception dinner prepared by a personal chef as you listen to the waves crash along the sea and the wild sounds of the rainforest’s inhabitants.

Don’t worry — you and your guests will have plenty of time to return to the water during your stay. Allow us to take you on a guided Jet Ski tour, where you will cruise around the cliffs and snorkel a reef. Hop aboard and we’ll take your group out sport fishing, where you can reel in marlin and sailfish in some of the best deep-sea fishing spots on the planet. From scuba diving to banana boat rides, you’ll have plenty of time to work on your tan!
