January is the beginning of Costa Rica’s dry season. The weather is pleasantly warm and breezy, with average highs of 89°F (32°C) and lows of 74°F (23°C).

Our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception will be outdoors. Therefore, we do not recommend the use of high heel shoes.

It is permitted to take photos and videos during the ceremony. However, we remind you of the importance of keeping your phone silent. A team of photographers and videographers will be present, so please do not walk in the way of the cameras or obstruct the shots.

While we love your little ones, our wedding is going to be an adults-only event so that everyone can relax and enjoy the evening. We appreciate you making arrangements ahead of time, and if you need any help arranging local help, please let the bride or groom know.

No. Costa Rica accepts and uses the American dollar as currency. However, you may be given change in Costa Rican colones and will want to exchange or use them up before you leave.

We suggest letting your bank know that you will be traveling abroad for the specified dates so you can use your cards without being flagged.

Costa Rica observes Central Standard Time (CST) all year. There are no daylight savings time changes.

Outlets are the same as in the US, so no electric adapters/converters are needed.
