The North Pacific

The northern part of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica plays one of the most important roles in the development of tourism in Costa Rica.
In the two provinces, Guanacaste and Punatarenas, you can find the biggest hotels in the country, the most popular beaches and many visitors. A lot of this attractive zone constitutes the province of Guanacaste, which includes a large part of the Nicoya Peninsula.

The capital of Guanacaste, Liberia, now has an international airport, where charter flights from all over the world arrive. Also from Europe.
But the northern Pacific does not only have beaches to offer: The volcanoes Orosi and the volcano Rincon de la Vieja belong to the realm of the North Pacific, and are mostly unknown destinations for travelers

Im Golf von NicoyaGuanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula

Guanacaste is one of the seven provinces of Costa Rica

It has an area of approximately 10000 km ² and around 280,000 inhabitants and has over 1,000 km of coastline.
Life in Guanacaste is different than in the rest of Costa Rica, everything is quiet. This has to do, of course, with the ambient temperature.

Nationalpark Barra Hondavisit Barra Honda National Park

There are 46 limestone caves in the national park of Barra Honda

Barra Honda National Park is located in the north of Costa Rica, where the Nicoya Peninsula borders the mainland.
Unlike the volcanic rock in all of northern Costa Rica, the "basin of Rio Tempisque" is established on a foundation of limestone. Through millions of years of long erosion, the water has dug inside the numerous caves of limestones.
