What can I expect from Liberia?

Liberia is located in the northwest of Costa Rica, on the Guanacaste province, and has all the makings of a popular tourist spot: an international airport, a modern churches, an authentic colonial atmosphere, a rich history, and a central park. While Liberia is mostly used as a waystation to move on to Guanacaste’s more developed surrounding cities and white sand beaches, the capital city isn’t a bad place to have a quick stay. With Guanacaste province offering visitors some of the country’s most incredible white sand and blue water beaches, rainforests, and volcanoes, the traffic through the gateway city of Liberia is not going to slow down anytime soon.

As a gateway city, Liberia might just be a short stopping place for you on your way to the white sand beaches of the province. There is a good reason for this too, Liberia is close to the resorts and beaches on the Pacific Ocean, including Papagayo Gulf, Playas del Coco, Playa Hermosa, Tamarindo, and Playa Conchal.

These are some of the most sought-out destinations in Costa Rica. Playa Hermosa boasts calm waters, incredible sports fishing, and unforgettable scuba diving.

Papagayo Gulf, Guanacaste

Papagayo Gulf is the home to many of Costa Rica’s all-inclusive exclusive resorts. Located in the northern Pacific Coast just north of Playa Panama. The Papagayo Gulf is untamed and very beautiful. If you want to get away from people and experience the nature of Costa Rica at its fullest, this is a great area to explore.

Papagayo is located in Guanacaste, close to the Liberia International Airport. Rest and relaxation always go hand in hand in the Gulf of Papagayo, with mesmerizing ocean views and intimate settings and activities, as well as lush tropical greenery at every turn. If you enjoy sunny days, this is your spot. Here you can find large resort developments, as well as small intimate hotels and close proximity to lots of national parks such as Santa Rosa and Rincon de la Vieja.

The Perfect Tropical Beach

Traditionally known as a paradise for bird watchers and nature lovers, Papagayo is also a charming experience for those interested in relaxation and fun. Papagayo’s beaches comply with most of the requirements upon which a good beach is usually judged. Water quality, views, a texture of sand and the limited presence of mosquitoes and other pests are probably the most specified criteria. There is a general agreement that Papagayo’s shores rank very well when it comes to these factors.

Generous palm trees rise up from the beaches giving shade to sunbathers. Spectacular sunsets are a regular component in the scenery along the Pacific coastline of the Gulf of Papagayo. From calm waters with great swimming to the finest sand beaches with magnificent panoramas, Papagayo is a perfect destination to enjoy nature and relax.
