Adults only luxury boutique hotel in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

Villa Buena Onda: An Intimate & Secluded Costa Rica Wedding Venue

Villa Buena Onda is a meal-inclusive resort located on the hillside of Playas del Coco, in Papagayo, Guanacaste. It’s a boutique hotel best known for being a place of relaxation, excellent service, and incredible food.

However, here we uphold a simple truth: a Costa Rica wedding isn’t simply about having a good time, it’s about creating lifelong memories.



With unique ocean views and an intimate atmosphere, the hotel is the perfect Costa Rica wedding venue. To make this special day even more memorable, we also provide personalized wedding planning services.

Let us customize your dream wedding, from 2 people and up, based on your expectations and ideas, so it can be perfect from beginning to end. Music, flowers, and food are all arranged to your satisfaction. The villa can hold up to 23 sleeping guests and up to 80 wedding guests.


Why choose Villa Buena Onda for your wedding destination?

Villa Buena Onda is an unbeatable wedding destination. Intimacy, attention, and beauty are at the front stage in this luxury hotel, making your experience unforgettable.



Privacy and exclusivity: With only eight rooms, you can rent all the hotel for your wedding. When renting the whole Villa, everything operates the same as when we function as a hotel, the only difference is that it’s just for you.

You will have the full 12-member staff making sure your stay is as wonderful as possible, arranging everything from the decorations to the music.

Imagine a wedding at your own personal ocean-view venue, with no other worry than enjoying the day.


Easy access for guests: Located 25 minutes from the Liberia airport, Villa Buena Onda offers a smooth arrival experience. It’s perfect for families and other guests that may not travel often, but its location and natural surroundings make it exciting for those who do.

Five minutes from the gorgeous Coco beach, Villa Buena Onda has an outstanding combination of expansive views of the ocean and the Costa Rican tropical forest. Its proximity to nature and luxurious spaces make this one of the best beach wedding locations in the country.

We are also minutes from several other beaches, national parks, and a golf course. In Villa Buena Onda guests can enjoy not just the hotel, but also activities in the days before and after the ceremony.


Exceptional service: With our small size comes a huge commitment to service. In fact, we generally have more staff than guests! And for weddings, we have a dedicated bilingual wedding planner ready to help. She will make your oceanfront ceremony dream come true.

Whether you want to come to celebrate with a large group or a smaller one, Villa Buena Onda has the utmost attention to detail. Tell us how you always wanted this day to be, and we’ll make it happen!



Flexibility: We can host weddings of up to 80 guests, but we will also organize weddings with just two. If you want a certain array of colors or a specific flower, tell us to apply it into the wedding. We actually prefer to adjust everything to your taste: this day is about you after all!

Alternatively, if you want to come for a more romantic escapade, it is an intimate space where no other noise than bird songs will annoy you during your stay. Whether travelling to renew your vows or to celebrate a wedding anniversary, it is also a perfect nook for you and your beloved.

Keep in mind, however, that the villa itself can sleep up to 23 people in its eight rooms. A wide variety of nearby lodging is available for extended groups, and we can help arrange that for you as well.



Definitely, Villa Buena Onda makes for unforgettable Costa Rica wedding ceremonies and receptions. With stunning views of the Papagayo Bay as your backdrop, customizable packages, beach photoshoots, and gourmet meals, this is the perfect Costa Rica wedding venue.



Eloping can be the utmost romantic expression. It celebrates the truth at the core of romance: two people bound by love.

Villa Buena Onda believes romance is alive and well. We can gladly arrange a personalized elopement in Costa Rica that reflects your and your partner’s personality, while still incorporating the natural beauty from the country.

In addition, elopement allows you to have a Costa Rica wedding in the same place where you can start your honeymoon. Admire the tropical vegetation, go on adventure tours, or simply relax at the pool. It’s up to you!

With one of our customizable wedding elopement packages you can get the event of your dreams:


Just the Two of Us
