Hope & Jim Costa Rica beach wedding

Hope and Jim had a marvelous wedding at Casa O’hana in Playa Negra with the help of wedding planner Misty from Maxwell Weddings Costa Rica and day of coordinator Estella. Playa Negra is located in Guanacaste south of Tamarindo and is known for it’s world class waves and breaks and offers a laid-back Tico lifestyle escaping the hustle of other more popular areas.

Hope and Jim chose Costa Rica because they wanted to get away from the craziness of daily life and they have traveled a great deal and wanted something new for them and their guests. They polled their guests in the beginning to see where interest was and also to make sure no one had been there yet. Costa Rica was a unanimous choice and everyone wanted to go there.

Hope and Jim knew they didn’t want a big wedding, just something small and intimate so they chose Playa Negra because they felt like it would be less touristy and calmer place than Tamarindo or something else. They absolutely loved Playa Negra and couldn’t have been happier with the location.
