Ideas for a romantic marriage proposal in Jaco, Costa Rica.

Croc’s Resort & Casino, an all-inclusive resort, sits at the quiet end of Jacó beach for easy access to the sand and surf. Richly furnished rooms, with airy, light-filled interiors, are the hallmarks of the resort’s luxurious accommodations. Choose a room with a balcony overlooking the Pacific for a romantic vacation to remember, especially if you’re planning to propose!

As a tropical paradise famed for its motto, “Pura Vida,” Costa Rica is a fabulous setting for a dream proposal designed to capture your loved one’s heart. All the ingredients for the romantic proposal of your dreams is at hand. All you really need is some imagination and a few ideas, which we happen to have for you.

Let sunsets set the mood

Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast is famous for its sunsets, and sunset is certainly a romantic time to pop the question. Here are three great sunset proposal ideas:

  • Arrange for private cocktails and bocas on the 10th floor balcony overlooking the pacific; the sun goes down around 6:30pm every evening, so you’ll want to book it for 5:30 to 7:30. Maybe even add on a romantic dinner for two following your proposal.
  • Book a sunset cruise along the coast for a romantic mood and setting for your proposal. Private charters are available for up to 25 people, and regular sunset cruises with other Costa Rica travelers are schedule almost daily.
  • Horses are typically available for rent just right outside the gate from Croc’s pool area; a romantic sunset ride with a proposal at the end could be just the ticket.


Sand and sea, treasure hunts, and shells

Tortuga Island could be the perfect place to propose. Snorkeling is available just off the island and around a sunken boat, there’s a white sand beach for lounging and rum drinks, banana boat rides are fun, and there are plenty of hiking trails. You could write your proposal in the sand and “discover” it as you walk along the shore, or place it in a “floating” message bottle that you “find” while snorkeling (tie it to your wrist with a little transparent fishing line so you don’t lose that ring!)

Ask the staff at Croc’s Resort about packing a beach picnic lunch or sunset snack and wine basket. A beach blanket, drinks and bocas make the perfect setting for your proposal on the sand in front of the sea.

Head for Manuel Antonio National Park and walk up to Cathedral Point; get down on one knee and propose with the Pacific as your backdrop.

Head up the road (North of Jaco) to Playa Blanca. You’ll need to get there via Playa Manta, which can be accessed by the dirt road along Punta Leona. There is a small cave on the North end of this beach where you can stash a “treasure.” A few shiny “gold” Colon coins, some costume jewelry and a tiny wooden treasure chest with that engagement ring in it will a the most unique proposal she or he can imagine. Want to make it extra authentic? Create a treasure map ahead of time; use calligraphy, wrinkle it well, burn the edges for authenticity.

Suggest a romantic stroll along the shore to look for shells. Pre-pack a store purchased shell with that gorgeous engagement ring and keep in your pocket until the right time comes when you can suddenly “catch sight” of it; point it out to your Love and discover the treasure inside.

A romantic evening or afternoon couple’s massage and spa time

For a traditional, down-on-one-knee proposal, book a table at Croc’s premier restaurant, Adacus. Ask to reserve outdoor balcony seating for a perfect romantic ambiance.

If you want to make it extra private, arrange for dinner in your suite on the balcony, on the beach, or on the 10th floor balcony.

Feel like really making a grandstand? Talk to the hotel event coordinator about arranging for fireworks over the ocean right out in front of the resort.

Book a couple’s massage, followed by some romantic time in the Jacuzzi. Arrange ahead of time with the Spa staff to have Champaign and chocolate covered strawberries waiting there along with candles and flowers. Stash the ring in the bottom of her Champaign glass.

Let nature’s abundance create the perfect setting

Take to the treetops on an aerial tram and propose amidst the rainforest canopy as Scarlet Macaws, tree frogs, and hummingbirds sing in the background.

There are several waterfalls near Croc’s Resort and proposing at the foot of a waterfall is the height of romance.


Inviting someone to marry you create a memory etched in time for both of you. All you need for a dream proposal at Croc’s Resort in Jaco, Costa Rica is the ring, and a little bit of imagination.
