Although it can be hard to spend extra money on a wedding planner, Tropical Occasions is 100% worth it! The entire process was so incredibly easy, making it a very enjoyable and stress-free experience. Natalie and Jamie were wonderful to work with, truly understanding our vision and making it a reality. We loved every minute of it and would do it again :)

Tropical Occasions and Karen were amazing! We had the most beautiful wedding on Tulemar beach in Costa Rica April 2016 and it couldn't have been more perfect. Karen was great to work with and I loved the Pura Vida attitude, made this bride relaxed and I didn't have to ever worry. The decor was stunning and the execution was flawless. I would recommend working with them to anyone. Our wedding will be the one everyone remembers and talks about forever!

When we began planning our destination wedding in Costa Rica, we quickly realized we needed expert help. I tend to be a frugal girl so when I looked at the cost of a wedding planner, I initially hesitated to spend the money. However, every dime was money well spent! We found Tropical Occasions online and were impressed by their website, which is the first of many details they have nailed. We worked primarily with Karen who has lived in Costa Rica for many years. Karen was always professional, quick to respond, and followed up on each and every commitment she made. The contacts Karen and Tropical Occasions have established are surely the best in the country. We were very pleased with every vendor we used. Aimee oversaw the design of the wedding which turned out to be even more beautiful than we had envisioned. Jaime oversaw our rehearsal, and did a fantastic job arranging and organizing the ceremony. The entire weekend was a very stress free process thanks to Karen and Aimee's hard work. We loved every minute of our wedding weekend, and we will remember it with great joy for the rest of our lives. It would not have been possible without the amazing people at Tropical Occasions. They are the best in the business!

My husband and I chose to get married in Costa Rica in May 2014, we stayed at the Rui Palace in Guanacaste and got married at the Pacifico beach club in Playa Del Coco. After a lot of research and searching for a good wedding planner, I came across Tropical Occasions... Just after my first conversation with Aimee I knew not only that we were a match made in heaven but that my wedding was in the hands of someone who cared as much as I did about it (which is extremely hard to find). I'm very detail oriented and extremely picky and Aimee nailed every detail as if she could read my mind and apart from that she was awesome to deal with. I was then put in touch with Jaime and let me tell you she was just as amazing she answered every question within a very reasonable time frame and was always available to Skype to go over details. I felt as if a friend was helping me plan my wedding. She was great at keeping me on point and no demand was too much for her. I dealt with Anahi for the design part of the wedding and she was awesome, super talented as well as full of great ideas that worked with our budget. As for the day of the wedding I don't even know where to start these two wonderful ladies made my wedding an absolute dream come true!! They were there every step of the way with beautiful smiling faces making sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule. When it came to minor hiccups (brides this is bound to happen so be prepared) they were there with an immediate resolution. They were like little angels and I can not thank them enough for going above and beyond for us. As a matter a fact all my guests were amazed by how wonderful and tentative they were, my moms still talking about them. All in all I could not have done it all with out them and I will always have a special place in my heart for this wonderful trio that helped me create a magical day that will never be forgotten.

Words cannot describe how wonderful and memorable our destination wedding in Costa Rica was because of the fabulous help of Karen and Aimee of Tropical Occasions. We knew early on that we wanted to get married in Costa Rica, but the idea of planning a wedding there on our own seemed impossible. Luckily we came across the Tropical Occasions website and quickly got in touch with Aimee and Karen. They provided detailed consultation and took the time to answer all of our initial questions. After our conversations with them there was no question who we’d hire to help us plan and execute the wedding of our dreams.

Aimee got us started by coming up with a design for our big day. We told her our tastes and ideas and she knew exactly how to make those ideas come to life. Karen took over from there and she was absolutely fantastic. She was extremely detailed and she responded to all of our questions quickly. When it came to the big day, Karen went above and beyond! She ensured the ceremony and reception designs were flawless and no detail was overlooked. It’s been a month since our wedding and our guests are still raving about how beautiful and fun the event was!! This simply wouldn’t have been possible without Aimee’s design and Karen’s flawless execution. We can’t thank them enough!

To anyone considering a wedding in Costa Rica, do it! Costa Rica is amazing! Also be sure to hire Tropical Occasions to help you!
Aimee and Karen, we can't thank you enough of all you did for us. Everything about our wedding day was perfect and we are forever grateful for what you did for us. I can't even imagine our wedding without your help and vision. As a wedding photographer I knew that hiring a planner was a must, but I never really truly realized how much you do until having gone through the process as a bride. Aimee, thank you for working with us leading up to our wedding. We really appreciate your knowledge of Costa Rica and Punto de Vista. We felt like we knew what we were getting ourselves into and we were well prepared. Karen, your on the ground help was incredible. You went above and beyond with helping us and our guests not only on the wedding day but throughout the week. Thank you again for taking our friends' son to the hospital when he was sick and even coming over to help with administering the medications. You are such a cool lady. Thanks for having our backs and looking out for us! All of our guests loved you. You both are absolute gems and any couple would be so lucky to have you on their side. You are the best decision we made for our wedding!

We are so pleased with the service we received from Tropical Occasions! Aimee and Karen were incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. I had a consultation with Aimee about design for the wedding and she sparked so many great ideas. I was all over the map and she reeled me in so that there was consistency in my design and offered suggestions about what worked based on the vision I was describing to her. Very creative!

We had Karen as our event planner and coordinator on site. Wow! There are no words I can use to express how amazed I am with Karen. She is such a hard worker! My mom called her a hero and I couldn't agree more. We found out the week of the wedding that the flowers I had in mind had gone out of season earlier than expected. Karen went to the flower mart and found flowers that complimented my design idea and it came out better than I had envisioned! Karen successfully designed, put together ALL of the centerpieces, managed the vendors, lead set up and execution of two different locations for our ceremony and reception. The guests commented on how breath taking everything was and how smoothly everything ran. Could NOT have pulled it off with out her. AND to top it all off – she went to our room where seven women got ready for a wedding and made it spotless and inviting for when we returned home at the end of the night. My husband was beyond relieved. Karen is truly an amazing coordinator and I think any couple is lucky that gets to have her execute their wedding day. Thank you SO much Tropical Occasions, truly truly Amazing!

I was recently married in Tamarindo, Guanacaste, and had the good fortune to hire Tropical Occasions as my wedding planner. I am the kind of girl who definitely did not want to have to spend part of my wedding budget on a planner…I would have preferred to do it all myself. However, in order to plan a wedding in Costa Rica from Canada, I knew it was a necessity. And what an absolute boon this decision turned out to be. Aimee and her staff, Jaime and Anahi, were INCREDIBLE. The organization process was virtually seamless; so much so that it seemed like nothing had to be done! It just all managed to get taken care of, and I wasn’t required to do much at all beyond the big decisions. And I truly think their fees were extremely reasonable given the amount of work they put in on the actual day. Wow. They didn’t stop until the last guest left. Aimee, Jaime, Anahi… you turned my wedding vision into a reality, and I can’t thank you enough!

All in all, I had planned on having a simple wedding, but what I ended up with just blew me away. I couldn't have chosen better. Ladies – you outdid yourselves and we noticed! Pura Vida!

I’m an extreme researcher, I for some reason love spending hours on my couch with my laptop researching just about anything. I read all of the reviews I could about Tropical Occasions, I looked at wedding photographers blogs and found weddings that were done by Tropical Occasions, I talked to the photographers I was considering hiring and got their opinion, you name it, I researched it. But what stuck out the most, of any of the research I did, was when I actually talked to Aimee on the phone. Right then I knew that this work was her life’s passion, that she puts everything she has into each and every wedding that her company produces, and she takes incredible pride when the bride and groom have the time of their lives…that’s the person I want in charge of my wife and I’s big day.

1. They’re on top of it, and I mean SUPER on top of it.
2. Their designs are amazing.
3. They worked within our budget.
4. They can deal with an emergency.
5. They are able to keep the day of stress free.
6. Their help doesn’t stop with just wedding planning.They helped us with ideas for our honeymoon too.
7. They can plan the full package. Welcome dinners, rehearsal dinners, group events, you name it.

I can safely say that there is no conceivable way that we could have even had a wedding, let alone such a perfect one without Tropical Occasions. At the conclusion of our year and a half of planning, there’s also no other PEOPLE, I would want to have shared that experience with than Aimee and Karen.
