My now fiancé and I (story to follow!) had the privilege of staying at Caribe Town for 10 days in late April and I can honestly say it was everything we had hoped for and more! The owners, Jessica and Marc, along with Carlos went above and beyond what was expected to ensure that our stay was perfect from beginning to the end. Here’s our story:
Unbeknownst to my girlfriend at the time, I was secretly planning our engagement to take place at some point during our trip to Costa Rica. After exhausting some resources of my own, I decided to reach out to Jessica and team to see if they would be interested or could help in any way to assist in the planning of the special day. Not only did Jessica agree to help she seemed genuinely excited to be part of our big day. After exchanging emails for almost two months prior to our trip, Jessica and Marc had outlined the most amazing day completely catered to my ideas on how I wanted to pop the question!
The day started out like any other day at Caribe Town, with an awesome breakfast and excellent coffee to energize us for the day ahead. After a pleasant morning rain shower, we set off for a private horse back ride with Bruce at Playa Chiquita Riding Adventures. This turned out to be my fiancés favorite activity of the trip! Once back at Caribe Town we got ready for what I told my girlfriend was a special dinner at the resort. She thought it was “special” because dinner is not something generally offered at Caribe Town. After a quick drink at the bar, we were lead to the beach directly across the street from the resort. This is when my girlfriend really started to get suspicious! Once we got to the beach, she saw the bamboo cabana that Marc had constructed and setup earlier that day. There was a candle lit path on the beach and the cabana was beautifully decorated with more candles and fresh flowers. What followed was an amazing meal prepared by Marc and Jessica with all of my girlfriend’s favorites. If you ever get a chance to enjoy a meal prepared by Marc, do NOT turn it down! Dinner was followed by delicious desserts from Bread and Chocolate in Puerto Viejo and at this point my girlfriend was a nervous wreck waiting for me to ask the question. With Jessica’s help, I had one more surprise setup, FIREWORKS!! Yes, Jessica actually found and arranged a pyrotechnic company to put on a fireworks show on the beach as a backdrop for me to ask the big question. She said yes and it’s a day that neither of use will ever forget!
Its in no way a stretch to say that non of this would have been possible without Jessica, Marc and Carlos’s help! We both felt extremely lucky that not only did we find an amazing gem of a resort in the jungle of Costa Rica but we had the most amazing hosts and left with what we consider friends for life!
Not only will we recommend Caibe Town to all of our friends but anyone reading this review should stop reading now and book a stay with Jessica, Marc and Carlos immediately. You will not regret it!
