Is there anything that can make paradise…more paradisiacal? 

Costa Rica by herself is a gorgeous paradise. Her verdant rainforests are alive with colorful wildlife. Her shores are laden with gorgeous stretches of white sand and rugged rocky beaches. Her skies light up daily with the brilliant colors of the sunrise and sunset.

There are many ways to visit this paradise — either on a budget or with no expense spared. For those that want the full paradise experience for their special day, a Dreams Las Mareas wedding at this all-Inclusive resort is the real deal.

The Splendor at Dreams Las Mareas

Dreams Las Mareas is a stunning all-inclusive resort property located on the gorgeous El Jobo beach in the northern part of Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province. It is just an hour and a half away from the international airport in Liberia, making it super easy to access this gorgeous location.

Once you see the largest pool in Guanacaste lazily snaking through the grounds and the view of the Pacific Ocean beyond, you’ll know you’ve arrived in paradise. Surrounded by lush, tropical rainforest, the hotel sits on a gorgeous white sand beach. 

A short stroll brings you right to the beach where you can swim in the calm waters or simply sit on the shore and enjoy the sound of the surf. 

The hotel promises the height of luxury but works hard to minimize its environmental impact. For its efforts, the hotel has received the Rainforest Alliance Certified mark. The hotel also partners with the Tora-Carey organization, which protects and bolsters the local sea turtle population.

Furthermore, the resort gives back to its community by employing locals and bringing many tourists to the area. Beyond this, it also invests in local English classes, donates school supplies, and organizes beach cleanups. 


With 447 rooms, this splendid resort welcomes guests with open arms and stunning luxury. Each suite is equipped with a private hot tub on either a balcony or terrace. Choose between stunning views of the ocean, the jungle, or the dazzling pool. 

All rooms are decorated with earthy colors to complement the Costa Rican landscape. The use of natural woods is prominent and bright pops of color tie everything together like tropical flowers in the jungle. 

A fully stocked mini-bar (restocked daily) is provided in every room and 24-hour room service and concierge services are available to all guests. 

Anyone can upgrade to a Preferred Club room for an extra special touch of luxury. Many of these rooms have direct access to the swimming pool plus all the Preferred Club amenities.

These include access to the Preferred Club lounge and bar, personalized check-in and check-out, and a daily continental breakfast. Other upgrades include bath amenities, mini-bar, a pillow menu, and complimentary newspaper. 

Some of these rooms are set up exclusively for couples (2 adults), making them ideal for honeymooners. 


As far as amenities, the list is quite extensive and most assuredly opulent. 

Dining and Drinks

Eight restaurants are located on the grounds. Each offers unique flavors so you can have a different dining experience every day. From Asian cuisine to Mexican food to Italian flavors to an international buffet there are plenty of options!

The resort also offers eight strategically placed bars — each with a unique vibe. Enjoy casual swim-up bars at the pool, a sophisticated lounge with live music, or a drink at the spa. 


Right at the resort guests can enjoy a plethora of activities including:

  • Wildlife watching
  • Bike tours
  • Ping-pong
  • Pool with waterslide
  • Snorkeling
  • Big-screen movies
  • Theme nights and parties
  • Classes (cooking, Spanish, cocktails)
  • Onsite Shows and Entertainment
  • Fitness center
  • Kids club activities (video games, crafts, camping, etc.)
  • Full-service Spa

There is so much to do at the resort, you don’t even have to step foot off the grounds and still enjoy a varied vacation. 

Of course, there is a ton to see and do in the surrounding area. Costa Rica has many beautiful sights and experiences to offer. The concierge service will help you arrange:

  • Sportfishing
  • Ziplining

And so much more! Costa Rica is a veritable playground for outdoor adventures and Dreams Las Mareas makes it easy to find the best ones!
