Stunning natural beauty
You will marry in pristine nature! The mountainous jungle teeming with exotic wildlife starts almost right where the Pacific Ocean ends, creating a dramatic scenery. You will encounter exotic wildlife just by driving or walking around.
A large variety of romantic beaches
The area of Dominical offers a large variety of beaches; small romantic beaches in a bay surrounded by jungle or long stretched-out beaches where you can walk for miles without seeing another person. Both types make a great location for your wedding ceremony and/ or wedding photoshoot.
It never gets cold in Dominical, it is always nicely warm; grooms usually marry on flip flops in Dominical ;-). The water of the ocean is refreshing but not chilly; it stays ‘warm’ year-round. Rain can occur being so close to rainforest, but it hardly rains to such degree that it gets annoying. Whether you are in the hills or on the beach, the area offers spectacular sunsets!
