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. Our 75-acre property offers panoramic views as far as the eye can see, and overlooks one of the few remaining cloud forests today.
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.
What makes Villa Blanca special is the the constant 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.
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
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.
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.
Indoors or out, any detail of your reception can be personalized to your needs. Our menus, which can also be customized, are thoughtfully prepared with nutritional sensibility; and fresh, local ingredients that complement their exquisite flavors.
Our cuisine is a fusion of classic regional dishes and Costa Rican fare. Our food is enhanced by innovative sauces and spices, and fresh herbs and vegetables hand-picked from the hotel’s own greenhouse and neighboring family farms.
Led by a warm and friendly staff that’s always eager to please, we offer an array of facilities to make your destination wedding in Costa Rica a joyous and intimate affair.
To accommodate your wedding party(and help you bring your dream of a destination wedding in Costa Rica come to life), Villa Blanca has 35 casitas onsite, with three distinct series to choose from: Deluxe, Superior, and Luna de Miel (our honeymoon suite).
While our casitas vary by series (size and amenity), each is inspired by the natural beauty and serenity of the cloud forest, and is its own standalone dwelling. Vaulted cane ceilings, wood burning fireplaces, and handcrafted furniture come together to create the 19th century charm of a Costa Rican farming village.
