Weddings in San José

San Jose is bustling with urban hot spots and hillside getaways. Without a doubt, San Jose makes a unique cultural destination to tie the knot. The hub is home to plenty of restaurants, museums and parks. Its namesake city is good for couples looking for a city center with a vibrant nightlife and cultural attractions, while the surrounding parks provide plenty of natural escapes. Plus, its perfect location and nearby airports - like the San Jose International Airport - make it easy for family and friends to enjoy your special day.

San Jose

The capital city provides plenty of opportunity for beautiful weddings that are also convenient for any guests flying in for your nuptials. Due to its elevation - sitting at 1,170 meters in the Central Valley - San Jose enjoys a delightful temperature all year long, hovering between 65 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. That means no matter which month you wish to walk down the aisle, San Jose is ideal!

Before and after the wedding, guests can explore the city's Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, where provide more than enough bling to ogle over. San Jose is also known for its performing arts, theater and galleries. You'll find the Teatro Nacional (the National Theater), which hosts the Costa Rica National Symphony Orchestra, where you can be serenaded by the sounds of world-class violinists, cellists and more. Who needs a DJ when you can all head to the symphony after the ceremony?

Braulio Carrillo National Park

Home to some of the most well-preserved native habitats in Costa Rica, Braulio Carrillo National Park is also one of the easiest to get to, due to the large highway that bisects the park. Instead of walking into a church, your wedding guests can enjoy a natural cathedral of flora and fauna, dramatic waterfalls and miles of winding trails. If you have some guests with limited mobility, the park is also home to gondolas that provide birds-eye-views of the park's lush greenery, and can be a great early day trip for guests on your wedding day.

Poas Volcano

Sitting 2,078 meters above sea level, Poas Volcano is one of the country's most active volcanoes. You and your guests can explore multiple life zones throughout the surrounding national park, exploring a variety of geologic formations along the way. Although the last large eruption occurred more than one century ago, the volcano still powers a number of geysers that erupt regularly from the side pools. If the sulfuric waters put a bad taste in your mouth, you can stick to the lower elevations of the park, which are filled with thick forests and vibrant birds, including the black guan, the emerald toucanet and the resplendent quetzal, the country's national bird.


The San Jose province is home to a number of attractions that are perfect for adrenaline seekers, with bungee jumping being a huge draw for couples who want a unique way to start their life together. With plenty of death-defying drops to choose from, this is one wedding option you may want to consider.
