Large part of the Costa Rican natural and cultural heritage

If you're in hurry


This tourist region of Guanacaste is home to a large part of the Costa Rican natural and cultural heritage. It is therefore not without reason that here there are a significant number of protected areas with aquatic, terrestrial, mountainous and coastal ecosystems in which life develops in an exuberant way.

Thanks to the incomparable beauty of its landscapes (from the dry tropical forest to the lowland forest), the warmth of its climate and the fertility of its nature, Guanacaste has become one of the most sought after places for national tourism And internationally. It is one of the regions that has developed the most in terms of major hotel investments to meet the demand potential. It has an important support with the tourism development center of the Gulf of Papagayo and an international airport (Daniel Oduber) which hosts many charter flights and regular flights from the United States.

Along the coast of the Guanacaste, many beaches follow each other and bathe in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean. The scenery of the coast is exceptional. The white sandy beaches are extensive and the peaceful sea is tinged with intense blues.

In the northern part of the region there are two important cities: Liberia and Santa Cruz, which also provide access to five tourist centers: Papagayo, El Coco, Flamingo, Conchal and Tamarindo. In the southern sector, there are the towns of Nicoya and Sámara.
