"I’m so happy we decided to go on this adventure just for us."

- Amber

We just got back last week from the most amazing experience and I have Meghan to thank for it. With her help we had the perfect intimate ceremony but also hotels that suited our style, activities with the best ever guides, and reliable drivers.

We were able to just enjoy and not have any of the typical stress involved with travel – or a wedding!!! I’ve seen my friends go through stressful wedding planning and I’m so happy we decided to go on this adventure just for us. We just celebrated this past weekend with friends and family at home and surprised them with our announcement! Meghan even prepared with our photographer to have a sneak peek of photos ready for our party at home.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

"Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be and more!"

- Tanysa

Meghan is wonderful! From the very beginning of the planning process all the way through to the end of trip—-WONDERFUL!

I had a clear vision of what I wanted for our elopement. Initially, I was a bit apprehensive about planning a vacation and wedding that would take place in another country and have the vision that I was going for. However, that went away right after my first conversation with Meghan. I do project management for a living. So, I’m big on the finer details, communication and follow up and staying within an established timeline and budget. This far exceeded my expectations! Every detail was covered, every question or concern was addressed and the communication and follow up was outstanding! And importantly was very respectful of our budget. We were provided with various options for how our vacation and wedding could be put together so that we stayed within our budget. We eloped; however, I still had the fun and excitement of picking out wedding decor, flowers, dinner menu, photographer..,etc. Meghan welcomed ideas that I had and she was great about providing recommendations as well.

Our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be and more! Many, many thanks to everyone who had a part in making our vacation and wedding day oh so special!

Everyone was so personable and professional. Meghan, Heidi (The Westin) Sylvia (Photographer), all of the hotel/resort employees (Arenal Springs Hotel and Spa and The Westin- Playa Conchal), Mistico Hanging Bridge Tour employees and CR transportation… they all made us feel special; not just on our wedding, but over the course of the entire trip! I can not say enough kind words!

It’s been 2 weeks since we returned from our trip and we are still on cloud 9!

"What can I say but amazing!"

- Maria + Greg

What can I say but amazing! We decided to do a small wedding that included our kids only as we were blending families.

Meghan took care of every detail and was so flexible in changing dates when we had to make adjustments.

We were married on the beach at the Westin Guanacaste and it was simply breathtaking. Even though it was a small group of 6 we always felt as special as a larger wedding. Flowers food officiant photographer the set up on the beach.

Everything was perfection. I highly recommend Meghan and her group for your special occasion.

"I would highly recommend Meghan and the Mil Besos team to anyone who wants an easy, romantic wedding in beautiful Costa Rica!"

- Carmen + Colin

I was totally thrilled when I came across Mil Besos last year. I am not a planner myself, so I was relieved to find somebody who could plan not only my wedding but my entire wedding getaway, from the legalities to wedding vendors, hotels, and excursions. Meghan Cox was super friendly and responsive right from the start, but I guess my touch of inner-pessimism was holding out for some sort of hiccup. Well, I just returned from Costa Rica last weekend and I can tell you that throughout the entire six months of planning, through to my return home, there was not one single hiccup! During the planning stages Meghan was very knowledgeable and insightful. She took into account our wishes but made suggestions and gave lots of good advice. The wedding itself was seamless. The coordinator, hair/makeup artist, and chauffer showed up at our hotel when they were supposed to and each provided excellent service. My bouquet was beautiful and just as I had discussed with Catalina, as was the ceremony space set up next to the waterfall where we were married. Our amazing photographers met us there and followed us back to the beach after the ceremony, and my husband and I had time for a celebratory glass of wine before we made our way to the restaurant where Meghan has made us reservations. Everything just went perfectly to plan. I would highly recommend Meghan and the Mil Besos team to anyone who wants an easy, romantic wedding in beautiful Costa Rica!

"We are so grateful that we found this team to give us such a great experience!"

- Melinda + Adam

WOW I can’t say enough good things! We had the most beautiful elopement ceremony last week, and from the beginning of the process, all the way till the end everything when smoothly and stress-free!

Meghan was so amazing and patient with us. We even decided to change the location of our elopement (from La Fortuna to Playa Langosta) 3 days before the planned date due to poor weather (duh, it’s a rainforest–but we were hopeful for a sunny day) and she and her team made it happen!

We had the most beautiful flowers done by Jamie, who also was able to accommodate the date change and rush the delivery of flowers for us. They made a gorgeous mandala out of flowers for our ceremony in the sand because we opted out of the traditional arch. Marcelo was our officiant who was flexible with our last-minute date change and did a great job officiating our marriage, including all the legal paperwork. He made the process easy! We chose Jonathan Yonkers for photo/video and he and his team were wonderful to work with! We can’t wait to see the final results!

We are so grateful that we found this team to give us such a great experience!

"I highly recommend Mil Besos to anyone looking for a stress-free, unforgettable experience."

- Jennifer

My husband and I decided to elope with Mil Besos after reading awesome reviews! Meghan was outstanding throughout the entire process – prompt, understanding, visionary! While I didn’t see her on my wedding day (she had other weddings that same day) her assistant was so great! Everyone just showed up to our room and everything was done for me – hair, makeup, cake, photos – all amazing.

I highly recommend Mil Besos to anyone looking for a stress-free, unforgettable experience.

"We hit the jackpot, when we stumbled upon Mil Besos. This is when my worrying transformed into pure excitement!"

- Jennifer + Adam

After getting engaged, I became overwhelmed with the idea of planning a wedding. We talked about taking a trip to Costa Rica & were delighted to find out that eloping to CR was particularly easy & the dry season was fast approaching. We hit the jackpot, when we stumbled upon Mil Besos. This is when my worrying transformed into pure excitement!

Meghan Cox, our personal wedding planner, turned our anxiety into a joyful journey. She guided my fiancée & I every step of the way. Even though we were in 2 different countries, she held my hand throughout the entire process. She arranged transportation; helped us select a tremendous photographer; design a unique bouquet; choose a gorgeous ceremony location; create a personalized yet flexible itinerary; & even write/select our own vows! We had an entire week of pampering, adventure, wonderment & relaxation in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. We saw sloths, coati, iguanas, caiman, monkeys, hummingbirds, toucans, pineapple fields & volcanoes. We soaked in natural hot springs, & refreshing waters off the beautiful Pacific coast. We explored the forest from above while navigating on a private tour of hanging bridges. We ventured to the bottom of La Fortuna Waterfall & waded in the chilly pool below. We rode along the river on a guided safari; & practiced our Spanish! Stylist Paola became a friend & confidant as she assisted with my hair/makeup/nails & gown zipping! Adam & I saw each other for the 1st time in our wedding attire as I walked barefoot down the beach to where he stood waiting for me.

The beauty of Playa Conchal at sunset created the perfect backdrop for our ceremony. We ate heartily & sipped tasty beverages. We cut our cake, toasted to Pura Vida & all the planning + legal requirements were handled without having to micromanage ANYTHING! This trip was life-changing in countless ways. The largest thank you goes to you for taking our dreams & making them a reality. THANK YOU

"Meghan Cox and her team made all of our wedding dreams come true."

- Melissa + Meek

Meghan Cox and her team made all of our wedding dreams come true. When Meek and I started talking about running away to paradise to get married, we weren’t even exactly sure what that meant or where we wanted to go. We stumbled across the reviews for Mil Besos and decided to email Meghan and find out what they were all about. She responded to me so quickly and with so much detail I knew she was who I wanted to work with. We wanted our wedding to just be about us and our great love for each other and decided to bring 4 friends with us to share in our wedding adventure week.

Meghan and her team spent as much time and care planning our tiny wedding as they would if we were 300 people. Not a single detail was overlooked. We got married in another country, site unseen, and never felt anxious even once.

The week leading up to the wedding was the most fun we have ever had! Zip lining, white water rafting, jumping off the top of a catamaran into the ocean, beach days! All with transportation!

We chose our officiant Einar, who had the perfect vows for us. Meghan connected us with Catalina who worked all hours of the day designing the perfect table for us, it brought tears to my eyes when I saw it. She even shopped for the antique glassware I was looking for and shipped them to me in Canada. We chose Diego Solís from Stories Wedding Photography who was a dream to work with. He was young and fun and really captured our playful personalities. Chelsea, our day of coordinator, was like having a personal assistant. She knew everything I needed before I did and instantly made any wedding day jitters disappear. We had a privately catered dinner on the beach and the food was spectacular. Desiree and Juan were the perfect husband and wife catering team. Monica came to my room to do my hair and makeup and really made me look and feel like a movie star. A million thank-you’s to Meghan and all the behind the scene people that helped create our dream wedding. I could write a novel.

I highly recommend Mil Besos to anyone looking for a stress-free, unforgettable experience.
