LOVE IS IN THE AIR

A Storybook Wedding in the Clouds

VILLA BLANCA HOTEL | COSTA RICA

Where fairy tale weddings come true.

A magical and magestic setting. Nestled above a 2,000 acre cloud forest, and less than 90 minutes from Costa Rica’s capitol, San José, the Villa Blanca Hotel & Nature Reserve provides a truly magical and intimate setting for destination weddings in Costa Rica. 

Beauty is in the details. From hand-painted ceiling tiles to hand-crafted double doors in our very own chapel, Villa Blanca has a warm and welcoming charm that comes to life in its authentic design and architectural details.

Inclusivity and marriage equality. We believe love is love and welcome all couples, regardless of their faith, culture or sexual orientation. 

What makes Villa Blanca special is  the ever-present feel of magic and mystery in the air. This is a place that inspires a deep sense of awe, intimacy, and romance; all the right ingredients for an unforgettable destination wedding in Costa Rica.

"The best thing to hold onto in life is each other."

THE SETTING

Three venues.

One magical destination.

THE MARIANA CHAPEL

Inspired by 17th century Rome, the Mariana is an iconic chapel with its own love story (it was a 50th wedding anniversary gift from former President Rodrigo to his First Lady, Estrella Carazo). The chapel features 840 hand-painted ceiling tiles, plus hand-crafted pews and furniture made by some of Costa Rica’s finest artisans

THE AVATAR TREE

Located on a majestic hilltop at Villa Blanca, the “Avatar Tree” is an ideal location for small-to-medium size weddings. Using the natural elements blended with special accents, you can celebrate your commitment under a magnificent canopy within Mother Nature’s own cloud forest cathedral.

THE HACIENDA

At our Hacienda, your wedding reception will be right on the edge of the cloud forest. This wondrous setting, staffed by a courteous and gracious team, provides all the ingredients for a celebration your guests won’t forget.

Villa Blanca is ideal for small-to-midsize weddings with 40-80 guests.
