It is a favorite for both tourists and locals looking for an ongoing, beach-style party.

Tamarindo Beach – Tamarindo is Guanacaste’s largest coastal center and is frequented by foreigners from all over the world. It has all the amenities of a Costa Rican beach town – surf, sand, sun and a bustling nightlife. Tthis amazing town has become a mecca for surfers, but Tamarindo is also a favorite for eco-travelers.

Samara Beach – Samara Beach is one of the purest beaches in Costa Rica and is considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in Guanacaste. The beach has been presented with the highly regarded Blue Flag Award, given to only the cleanest and best preserved beaches in the country.

The easiest to access is the Terciopelo Cave and is open to the public.

Downtown Liberia – Known as the “white city”, Liberia is a typical flatland town with wide streets, old buildings and bahareque houses (a material similar to adobe but made with cattle dung and straw). The city has managed to combine old edifices, customs and traditions with modernism and new buildings, including malls and various modern destinations. 

Arenal Volcano National Park – Previously one of the most active volcanoes in Costa Rica, the beautiful Arenal is indeed a sight to behold. Visit La Fortuna, a tiny town near the base of the volcano, and the marvelous Hot Springs, a tropical paradise to relax both your mind and body.
