Can an expat be married in Costa Rica ?

by rpetersen

 Yes, foreigners may be married in Costa Rica. Both civil marriages, performed by a Notary Public and marriages performed by a priest in the Catholic Church are recognized. Individuals of other religious denominations must resort to a civil ceremony. The rights and obligations which arise from the matrimony, take effect when the declaration of marriage is registered in the National Civil Registry.
