Costa Rica Marriage Requirements: In order to get legally married at a resort, there are a few requirements you need. Even though by law the wedding couple only needs to be here 24 hours in advance, we would advise you to come at least 3 days in advance to meet with the wedding coordinator to go through the final details regarding the wedding. Symbolic and non-legal ceremonies allow flexibility for arrival date. Please speak with the wedding coordinator to discuss requirements.
Requirements: • Full name of both bride and groom. • Passport numbers and nationality – The passport must be signed by the bearer. • Place of birth (both Bride and Groom) • Date of Birth (both Bride and Groom) • Foreign address (both Bride and Groom) • Occupation/Profession (both Bride and Groom) • Marital Status - If you are divorced you must bring a copy of the divorce decree. It must indicate the date, city, state and the name of the court that issued the decree. If the Bride has been divorced for less than 12 months she will have to present a negative pregnancy test to the nearest Costa Rica embassy or consulate to have it authenticated. • The Brides parents full names, nationalities and address. • The Grooms parents full names, nationalities and address. • Two witnesses – A copy of their passport will be required. Anyone can serve you as witnesses even your close family or the Hotel employees. • Street address and phone number where the finalized documents can be sent to in your home country.
