Are you ready to visit your gateway to the richest coastlines in Central America?
Set within the northwest reaches of Costa Rica, Liberia belongs to the Guanacaste province, providing easy access to some of the country's most tempting draws. Welcome to Central America, where white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, and impressive, volcano-studded rainforests are in no short supply.
Head west from Liberia and you'll soon hit the Pacific Ocean, along with a wide variety of laid back beaches and coastal towns. Playa Hermosa is a quiet community that borders a calm section of ocean suited for swimming, or Ocotal, which is known for its outstanding sport fishing and superb scuba diving. Tamarindo is held in high esteem by many and for its surfing, premier international restaurants, and a lively nightlife.
To the east of Liberia is the Cordillera de Tilarán mountain range, and nearby rainforests, in the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. This park, some two hours from Liberia, has abundant forests and is threaded with hiking trails. Visitors to the park can ride horses, take mud baths, or swim beneath waterfalls—an adventurous alterative to time spent along the sunny Guanacaste beaches.
An entire country waiting to be explored, Costa Rica's territory is an ecological wonder. Truly unique, this small land mass only encompasses 0.03 per cent of the planet's surface, but belongs to the top 20 richest countries in biodiversity and species density, which gives new meaning to the country's name "rich coast."
With a marine surface 10 times the size of its land bound surface, Costa Rica is a haven for diving, snorkeling and surfing fanatics alike. With many wildlife protected areas on land and in the sea, such as the famous Cocos Island National Park, the preservation of the country's biodiversity and lush, natural beauty is a top priority to Costa Ricans.
A surfing hot-spot, Costa Rica is rated as the world's third best surfing destination, runner up only to Hawaii and Indonesia. With more than 1200 kilometres of coastline and consistent year-round surf, it's no wonder that Costa Rica is a surfer's paradise. What's more, this country is one of few in the world where two impressive oceans are within a 6-hour drive of each other. This makes it possible to start the day surfing in the Pacific and finish the day riding the waves in the Caribbean Sea.
Whether its rainforest adventure, ecological discovery, world-renowned surfing or secluded white-sand beaches, Costa Rica offers up the best Central America has to offer. Book your trip today.
