Sitting along 400 miles of pristine coastline, in the northwestern region of Costa Rica, the Guanacaste province boasts incomparable beauty in its landscapes and flourishing nature. As Guanacaste’s capital city, Liberia is known as the “white city” due to the whitewashed walls and beautiful, colonial architecture. Add long summer days, active culture and unparalleled wildlife, and you’ll discover why it’s one of the world’s hottest vacation destinations.

Experience San Jose

If you’re drawn to the excitement of city life, the bustling and cosmopolitan capital of Costa Rica, San Jose, is a great destination. The capital city is also the gateway to Costa Rica’s Central Valley’s national parks, where towering volcanoes, stunning waterfalls and coffee plantations draw visitors from around the world.

From live music to a night out at the theater, San Jose is brimming with cultural diversity. Costa Rican cuisine is distinctive, healthy and as diverse as the country’s exotic wildlife. From traditional gallo pinto (black beans and rice) for breakfast to arroz con pollo (rice with chicken) for lunch to casados (rice, black beans, meat, plantains, cheese, bread) for dinner, your taste buds will discover a new world of flavors.

If you’re looking for souvenirs, the shops in your hotel are the best bet, along with stores in Tamarindo. Things to take home are coffee, woodcarvings, wood salad bowls and platters and ceramics.

Experience Liberia and Guanacaste

With more than 100 beaches along the Pacific coast to choose from, the Liberia and Guanacaste regions are perfect for slowing down to enjoy Costa Rica’s pura vida (pure life). The beautiful, white- and black-sand beaches provide an ideal setting for a relaxing getaway or surfing vacation.
