Welcome to Guanacaste
Coined the Gold Coast of Costa Rica, the province of Guanacaste is lined with some of the most beautiful beaches in the entire country. It is also the driest of the seven provinces, which makes it an ideal destination if you want to soak up the sun with a piña colada in hand and a calm clear sea at the tips of your toes. It is here that you can find completely secluded beaches, beaches with restaurants and bars, beaches that are ideal for swimming and snorkeling, and beaches with world-class surf breaks. Needless to say, Guanacaste is a beach-lover’s paradise.
What makes Guanacaste such an alluring destination goes beyond its golden beaches though. Guanacaste is one of the more developed provinces in Costa Rica and with that comes five-star accommodations, dozens of exceptional restaurants, seemingly endless opportunities for exclusive tours and experiences, and a level of convenience that will be well-welcomed.
Guanacaste is home to the famous Witch’s Rock and Ollie’s Point and home to a few dozen other awesome surf breaks. This part of Costa Rica is perfect for both beginner and experienced surfers. Whether you just need to rent a surfboard, or you want to hire a private surf guide, we’ve got the connections to make your surf dreams come true.
Guanacaste is also home to a very rare ecosystem, the tropical dry forest. This ecosystem is prime habit for howler monkeys, white-nosed coatis, peccaries, ocelots, jaguarundis, jaguars, pumas, deer, iguanas, and over 200 species of birds. The Catalina Islands and the Bat Islands are host to an abundance of diverse marine wildlife, including whale sharks, pilot whales, manta rays, sea turtles, sharks, and vibrant tropical fish.
The hotspots of Guanacaste include Playa Flamingo and Tamarindo. Both of these desirable locations are only an hour away from the Liberia International Airport. From here, it is also very easy to embark on a day-trip to a number of extraordinary National Parks, including Rincón de la Vieja, Santa Rosa, Palo Verde, and Barra Honda.
