Big budget weddings are out and elopements are in, according to wedding planners across North America. As a destination, Costa Rica has always been on the top of the list for honeymooners, but now Lapa Rios Rainforest Ecolodge is seeing an increase in couples coming to say “I do”, which is why they are offering elopement packages along side honeymoon rates.
What sets Lapa Rios apart is the guest list of howler monkeys, red eye tree frogs, jaguars, two and three toed sloths and over 300 species of wild birds. And family members who are trying to get hold of the happy couple – can’t, as communications is limited with phones and internet only available for emergency purposes.
Prices for a legal wedding start at $1350. For more information www.laparios.com.
