I was married in Costa Rica in 1997, and it took months and months of paperwork. But that was a legal marriage. Perhaps what you're looking for, just a symbolic ceremony (I assume) might not be so difficult. Where will you be in Costa Rica? When? How long? Maybe I can ask around some of the relatives and friends and come up with a direction in which to steer you.
Yes it is just a symbolic ceremony. We will be in Limon, Costa Rica on Tuesday Feb.19,2002, from noon until 7:00P.M. And my Spanish is limited to counting to 30 and saying hello! Thanks for any helpm you can offer. Linda
