Wedding Frequently Asked Questions

Why hold a Costa Rica Destination Wedding?

Quite simply, your special day deserves the most memorable setting possible – and we can’t think of any place more magical than Villa Punto de Vista. And since many couples find that their family and friends will be traveling for the event anyway, why not entice them to a tropical paradise where they can celebrate your wedding AND enjoy a relaxing vacation?

Is a Costa Rica Wedding right for us and our guests?

We believe it will be – but it might make sense to contact those special friends and family members without whom your wedding just wouldn’t be the same, and see what they think.

How many guests can Punto de Vista Villa accommodate?

Villa Punto de Vista accommodates 24 adults or a group of 27 adults and children in our 10 air-conditioned suites.

To accommodate larger groups, several additional villa rentals are available within our immediate area, including one right next door, and there is also several ocean-view hotel just 5 minutes away.

The Villa Punto de Vista Concierge can assist you with options, pricing and reservations.

How far in advance should we plan our Costa Rica Wedding?

To allow time for you and your guests to plan and make travel arrangements, we recommend confirming your dates with Villa Punto de vista no less than 8 -12 months in advance, many times the Villa is booked 12 -15 months in advance by our couples. For specific dates, we recommend contacting us as soon as possible!

Can you explain the event fee? I don't understand this charge.

The villa is also an event venue and contains large event areas and infrastructure (such as 2 sets of public restrooms, an elevator, etc.) not found in any other villa rental. It is for the use of these spaces for an event that the fee is charged. Also, we provide your party with two Punto de Vista service staff members for the wedding to keep everything tidy and keep the public restroom clean thought the event.

Do we need to hire an outside travel agency to arrange, accommodations, tours, transportation or services?

No! For absolute indulgence & relaxation. Included complimentary of the rental of exclusive Villa Punto de Vista is our pre-arrival concierge. The pre-arrival concierge acts as a private travel agency for you and your guests. You are more than open to use outside agencies, but with over 100 bookings we think we have gathered an excellent list of the best credible providers for accommodations, tours, transportation & services. We are sure to only work only with providers with a positive track record, just as importantly trained professionals (guided tours/drivers/services as well as verifying insured operators! For accommodation, the villa is able to get usually special pricing offered as Punto de Vista guests and additional benefits!

The Manuel Antonio areas have temperatures that stay around 25-30 degrees Celsius, or 75 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, throughout the year. Rains are more likely around late May and beginning of November.

What is the best attire for a tropical Beach Wedding?

We suggest that the bride’s and her attendants’ attire should take into consideration the warm tropical temperatures. The attire for the wedding party and attending guests is customarily casually elegant and comfortable. See what some of our wedding parties have chosen in our wedding photo gallery.

Are photography/video services available?

Yes, we do have a recommendation for both a local & International photographers as well as professional Videographers. Although, each planner might have their own contacts, some couples have frequently organized their own destination photographer & videographer.

Will someone be available to iron my wedding dress?

We have a professional steamer on site for your use (Jiffy J-2000 Garment Steamer*) and a professional Cleaning Service in town that picks up at the villa for any specific needs. *The steamers is complimentary item.

Can I have a Destination Wedding in Whale Watch season at Villa Punto de Vista?

Weddings at Villa Punto de Vista are fantastic year-round. Our Whale Watch season is most likely going to be offering sunny mornings most days (plenty of time to enjoy the beach, pool time, tours, and activities) but afternoon showers are common like in any tropical location. Also, rain in the rainforest is a magical experience not to be missed! There is more wildlife this time of year including the famous migration of Humpback Whales arriving from the tip of South America to mate and raise their young. The whales give off incredible shows in famous Manuel Antonio Bay which can often be seen right from the terraces of the villa! So in summary, a little afternoon rain doesn’t mean a remarkable stay or event can’t happen in Whale Watch Season and this rainy season video is a great example!

Magnificent property for a truly magical event

Everything was beyond perfect. Every view, room, and feature completely breathtaking. Each day was better than the next. All of our guests were in awe and jaws were dropped with every corner turned. The staff was absolutely incredible and we’ve never felt better taken care of. And most importantly, all of our friends and family remarked on it being amongst the best experiences of their lives. Many tears were shed at checkout as we were sad it had to end, but so very happy it happened.

Everything we expected and more!

We are a group of 6 couples aged 40-60 who travel 5 star and stay in luxury villas often. Punto de Vista was one of our favorites. It started with Gloriela months before assisting with our itinerary and provisions. The professionalism and attention to detail were impeccable. Upon our arrival, we were blown away with the architecture and how well laid out the villa is. It’s absolutely picturesque. The location couldn’t be better as it sits right in the middle of nature at its finest. Monkeys, sloths and Tucans surrounded us daily. The beach was a beautiful 10 minute walk...
