About Erika Barreiro, Owner of Amore Paraiso
Erika Barreiro is the owner of Amore Paraiso, a destination wedding planning company based in Costa Rica. She was born and raised in Columbia, and lived in the United States before calling Tamarindo, Costa Rica home. Erika's background combines cultures, business, and passion which all led her to wedding planning.
Erika's formal education is in law and she started her career as a lawyer. While enjoyable, she knew she was neglecting her creative side. The turning point for Erika happened while working for a non-profit company planning and designing galas to raise funds. This taught her the process of planning important events. It also made Erika realize how much she loves celebrations and bringing happiness to others. She took the leap and launched Amore Paraiso.
Still the queen of contracts, Erika uses her law experience in her Costa Rica wedding planning business to review and negotiate vendor contracts for her clients. She also helps them navigate the legalities of getting married in Costa Rica. Erika is living a life she adores and nothing makes her happier than celebrating love.
