Guanacaste – known as the “sunny side” of Costa Rica – is one of the most popular areas in the country. The northwestern province, named after Costa Rica’s national tree the Guanacaste, is home to seven national parks.
The nearly-always sunny climate is dry and hot, creating its unique dry tropical forest habitat. Vast rolling plains, foothills and low coastal mountains, and the towering Guanacaste Mountain Range with its powerful volcanoes create an interesting topography and microclimates rich with biodiversity.
Guanacaste is a preferred Costa Rica vacation destination and popular place to live for its famous Pacific Coast beaches. Known as the “Gold Coast” or “Costa Rica’s Riviera,” here you can find everything from wild, completely deserted tropical beaches to booming, buzzing beach towns full of life, hotels, restaurants, night clubs and activity.
The Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia (LIR) is perfectly positioned for visiting Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province. Flights from all over the world bring visitors to these popular Costa Rica beaches and all of Guanacaste’s attractions.
