A Costa Rica Destination Wedding Venue

an all inclusive costa rica wedding at the beach

Walk toward your groom on a bed of flower petals covering the sand while the ocean crashes all around you…

Or

Gaze into your groom’s eyes under a driftwood arch covered in tropical flowers with the sea as your backdrop…

If you’re thinking of getting married in Costa Rica, Ylang Ylang is the place. The lush jungle greenery and gentle sway of the ocean, the fragrant, tropical blossoms inspire romance with every breath.

“OMG. The Ylang Ylang setting has a magical effect on everyone. I did not see a single person who attended my wedding anything but completely relaxed and pampered.”

You and Your Guests Celebrate in Style

At the Ylang Ylang, you’ll get the tropical fantasy wedding you’ve been dreaming of. Your guests enjoy an exceptional beach vacation while celebrating your special day with you. That is YOUR gift to them….

“Hearing so many of my family and friends saying, ‘we have to come back here’ as they departed is a testament to how incredible Ylang Ylang Beach Resort is… Ylang Ylang Beach Resort provided, as my family has termed it, ‘the BEST vacation EVER!’”

Become Part of the Story

You and your guests become part of this tropical Eden. One with Nature. Here, among the chatter of monkeys and the trill of hummingbirds, you and your guests gain entry to a slow, relaxing pace. You become part of the tribe. Meld into this serene landscape to create the first chapter in your new life. And share it with friends and family.

The wedding day itself was so spectacular it blew all of my expectations out of the water!! My family and friends can’t stop raving about how perfect the wedding was…”

“The Ylang Ylang made planning and executing my destination wedding so much easier than ever expected. This is the place to wed if you are not the type of person that likes to get caught up in details, yet you still expect perfection. Moraya will absolutely deliver your dream wedding to you, with so little fuss.”

Your Wedding. Your way.

Two individuals becoming one. You want your ceremony to be as unique as you are. Whatever you dream up, we’ll make that magic happen. And with no fuss or worry from you… Leave all the details to us. The Ylang Ylang staff has been creating exclusive ceremonies and receptions for years.

“Emma and Moraya … made the wedding planning process such a breeze that thanks to them I truly think I’ll go down in history as the least stressed bride there has ever been.

Adventure Anyone?

If you or your guests crave excitement, Ylang Ylang delivers. Get up close and personal with the native wildlife, hike the local falls, sport fish or fly on a zip line. Take a peek at the activities, tours and special deals you and your guests can take part in. The Ylang Ylang staff will be happy to arrange everything for you.

“… there are SO MANY opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime adventures that you could never get bored!”

“Taking walks on their nature trail and on the beach in front of the resort was really nice. We saw lots of monkeys, iguanas, and beautiful birds…. We used their boogie boards and went to a great beach about 25 minutes down the beach to the left. We booked ATVs through them and had a fun adventure. The ATVs were delivered right to Ylang Ylang which was so convenient. We can’t wait to go back.”
