The Guanacate Coast on the northwest shores of Costa Rica is a destination for travelers the world over for a couple simple reasons: its dry tropical climate, miles of sandy beaches on the one side and robust mountainous and volcanic terrain on the other.
In short, it’s a nature-lovers paradise. And at the same time, it retains an authentic culture that attracts the world’s most interesting travelers.
Together, Guanacaste’s rich nature and culture make the region one of the best places to visit, adventure, and live.
Here are 4 reasons you should add the Guanacaste Coast to your future itinerary.
Whether you spend every day riding the excellent surf or exploring the nearby volcanic calderas, the dry tropical climate will keep you comfortable. Rather than dealing with humid heat, you will feel at-ease in the ocean’s breeze, regardless of the activity.
And speaking of surf and peaks, you have plenty of options. Walk the white sands at one of our favorite beaches, Playa Conchal. Take to the mountain’s foothills and ride miles of singletrack on your mountainbike. Or, if you’re seeking even more heart-pounding elevation gain, take to the mountains. Pick a peak or ask a local, suit up, and go.
There is no better feeling than ending your day on the Guanacaste coast. You’ll have experienced nature in its most pure and natural state, your heart will have pounded for the activity and the views alike, and you can reflect on it all with an ocean view so incredible it will live in your memory for years to come.
Perhaps the best part of Guanacaste’s tropical paradise is it’s easily accessible. Fly into Liberia International Airport and arrive at Casa Chameleon Las Catalinas with plenty of time left in the day to get out, play, and enjoy the seaside sunset.
