You have your choice of two beautiful locations for your wedding ceremony – the Ampitheatre at Villa Caletas, or poolside at Zephyr Palace. The Ampitheatre is steeper, but has the more rustic feel of European ruins, whereas the Zephyr Palace pool is more modern and contemporary. Both have views, but the Zephyr Palace pool view is more visible for wedding guests.

This is the Villa Caletas Ampiteatre.  It's next door to the Mirador restaurant where the hotel hosts wedding receptions.

Ceremonies can be completely customized to your taste.

You have three choices for wedding receptions: The Zephyr Palace Ballroom (which is air conditioned), the Mirador Restaurant (indoors is airconditioned and there is also an outdoor deck), and the private Villa Caletas beach. The beach is down a long, windy road, bumpy and is only accessible by four wheel drive, which can make it tricky to bring down your wedding cake or anything breakable. But you will be rewarded with sand under your toes as you dine and dance the night away.

The Zephyr Palace ballroom accommodates about 150 wedding guests. There's lots of room on the dance floor for your party!

Why we love Weddings at Zephyr Palace and Villa Caletas


Everything is in one place. This makes it super easy for you to get ready, have your ceremony and enjoy your reception without needing transportation. If you have guests who are staying elsewhere (such as Los Suenos or somewhere in Jaco), you can arrange group shuttles for everyone. Herradura is located close to Jaco and Playa Hermosa’s surf beaches, plus two national parks. Manuel Antonio is only an hour drive away. You are also close to volcano, coffee, mangrove, ATV, white water rafting, zip lining, sunset cruises and other excursions.
With views as far as the eye can see, we love that the backdrops are always picture-perfect.
