A White (Water) Wedding in Costa Rica at Parador Resort & Spa

Parador Resort & Spa in Punta Quepos, Costa Rica, combines tender touch with adrenaline rush in its new Pacific Adventure Romance Wedding Package. Two nights in a suite, an intimate wedding ceremony and couples’ massage are coupled with white water rafting and a rainforest zip line tour. The package is priced at $1,440 per night per couple, tax included, through December 2012.

Parador Resort & Spa lies within 12 acres of Manuel Antonio National Park, the only place in Costa Rica where jungle literally kisses sea. Couples can stage their wedding in a secluded niche of dense jungle, or they can opt for grand-scale ballroom ambiance.

Parador Resort & Spa’s Pacific Adventure Romance Wedding Package welcomes newlyweds to two nights in Parador Suites, a self-contained complex with private adult-only infinity pool and Jacuzzi, La Fragata Restaurant & Tapas Bar and private concierge. The package also includes a ceremony official; the legal fee and wedding certificate; the bride’s bouquet and groom’s boutonnière; a carpet of rose petals; a romantic candlelit dinner with a bottle of champagne; a Swedish massage for two; a rainforest canopy tour (zip line of 18 platforms, nine cables, two rappel lines, one aerial swing and one suspended bridge) and white water rafting (rapids of the spectacular Naranjo River), suitable for novice rafters.

Parador Resort & Spa is deeply committed to green practices and has received the 5-Leaf Sustainability Award by the Costa Rican Tourism Board. The resort features European-inspired ambience, 96 rooms and 33 suites, three restaurants, four bars, and three ocean view pools and Pacifica Spa.
