The airport in Liberia is the gateway to the Province of Guanacaste, the sunniest part of Costa Rica. Thanks to its large number of snow-white buildings and tree-lined streets made of white gravel, the city itself is also referred to as ‘la ciudad blanca’. But, let’s be honest, most visitors who arrive here are primarily interested in white sand. Only a half hour by car from the airport is the fantastic Pacific coast with beaches that are postcard perfect.
There is no lack of luxury in Guanacaste but, no matter where you stay, you are guaranteed sun, sea and natural beauty along the coastline. Some beaches are fashionable and crowded, while others offer pure relaxation. Looking for the best surf spots? Want to enjoy nature, both above and below the water’s surface? Or do you prefer to spend your holiday with a cocktail in hand? The choice is yours. The variety of beaches is enormous and, the best part is, you can visit more than one. These three favourites should get you off to a good start.
