Tucked up in the northwest corner of Costa Rica is the Province of Guanacaste. It features the Pacific Ocean to the west, Nicaragua to the north, and the provinces of Alajuela and Puntarenas as neighbors. Lightly populated–fewer than 330,000 souls currently–Guanacaste Province boasts some fine, natural beauty. If you plan to visit Costa Rica, the natural wonders of Guanacaste Province are sure to please.
The Guanacaste Mountains and their volcanoes are a magnet for those seeking escape and adventure. Sign up for canopy and volcano tours, hiking expeditions or even ziplining. Hop aboard an ATV and visit the exotic forest around the Arenal Volcano. Want a different perspective? Take a walk along one of 15 bridges hanging above the rainforest floor.
Other exciting activities include surfing, scuba diving, golf and bird watching. Dozens of unique and interesting species of birds call the Guanacaste area home at least part of the year.
Liberia is the capital of and largest city in Guanacaste Province. Its international airport serves as as gateway for thousands of tourists each year. Nicknamed la ciudad blanca (the white city) due to the white gravel used to pave the roads and the whitewashed homes, Liberia has become a major center for tourism. Like the rest of Costa Rica, residents (known affectionately as Ticos) are open to sharing their culture and country with visitors everywhere.
