Wedding vows at Bella Vista Mar Hotel in Nosara








Family weddings of 10 - 15 or larger events of up to 100 people can be accomodated, and we take care of everything from food to flowers. Your big day should be relaxing and fun - let us help you! See our gallery of wedding photos here.

Workshops and Retreats
We specialize in retreats and workshops that are intimate and personal.  The ideal group size is 10 - 20, although larger groups can be accommodated using additional facilities nearby.  Regardless of group size, we dedicate our facility to you. You will not compete with other guests and our staff will devote their complete attention to providing a memorable experience for your group.

Group meeting at Bella Vista Mar Hotel in Nosara Costa Rica





Need help planning? Our knowledgeable staff works with you to create the perfect agenda for your group. Our goal is to make your job as easy as possible and keep your attendees coming back to your retreat year after year.

Depending upon the needs of the group, meals will be prepared on-site, or in the case of a large wedding, catered from a local restaurant. We offer sit down or buffet service depending upon your needs and the size of the group.

Buffet being served at group meeting

Meals prepared on-site focus on healthy, local options and we are able to provide vegetarian, raw, low carb or any other specialized menu you desire. Organic products can be specified and will be provided as available.

For week long events dinner one night at a local restaurant is part of the package, and other nights out to hear music or attend special events can also be arranged.

Snacks are provided mid-morning and mid-afternoon with a choice of healthy options including fruit smoothies and fresh baked goodies.

Group Accommodations

Bella Vista Mar arranges all accommodations for the group.  As part of the package, facilitators are provided a room for privacy from the group. Group attendees are housed on-site at Bella Vista Mar, with additional rooms available at nearby hotels if necessary.

Pool House
Our pool house is located just off the pool and provides a large open air location for group gatherings.  Classes, presentations and other group events are easily accommodated here.

Thank you so much for all your help organizing our wedding. Everything worked perfectly from the food (YAA Roxana!), the flowers, the view and the hostess! Our wedding and stay at Bella Vista Mar is unforgettable and we would do it all again in a heartbeat. Jess and Aaron, March 2011
