Costa Rica News – After a Guys Trip or Bachelor Party in Costa Rica you might have “met the woman of your dreams.” I have heard it a thousand times of a guy coming down to Costa Rica and falling in love with his fling for the week.
In most cases this union does not last long but there are a few guys that decide to tie the knot and want to know how they marry their new true love. They may have gone the the Hotel Del Rey in Costa Rica or picked her up at the Hotel Cocal in Jaco. Remember most of these Costa Rica Bachelor Party women will be looking for their next love the day after your plane touches down in your home country.
If you are taking a Costa Rica Guys Trip or hosing a Costa Rica Bachelor party it is always better to rent that to buy.
Again this is like going to the strip club and deciding that the stripper really likes you……. but in case you want to settle down with said stripper, here is how it is done.
No need to get notarized documents, or have documents translated. A police record is not necessary. Blood tests, what’s that? No marriage license required. A Costa Rica marriage is legally recognized internationally.
To get married in Costa Rica (civil ceremony or Matrimonio Civil in Spanish) all it requires is a trip to a notary (or the notary come to you) and two witnesses willing to sign the document. The notary will be responsible for filing the paperwork with the Registro Civil (Civil Registry).
It takes a few weeks for the marriage to appear on the Civil Registry. You can check registered marriages here.
Checking marriages by name: Nombre is you name. 1er Apellido is your last name. 2do Apellido is your second last name (if you do not have a second last name, leave it blank). Sexo: Masculino is Male; Femenino, Female. Fill in the captcha code and press ‘buscar nombres’.

Cost for civil marriages can vary, it depends on the fee set by the notary. Most lawyers/notaries start at ¢80,000 colones (US$150 dollars).
In Costa Rica, all notaries are lawyers, but not all lawyers are notaries. And you will need a notary, that is a lawyer who is a notary, to do the paperwork.
Also, In Costa Rica, the woman doesn’t change her name when getting married.
