Here you will be able to find everything from hostels to gorgeous 5 star resorts depending on your travel needs. Some of the most popular beaches include Tamarindo, Flamingo, Hermosa, Papagayo and El Coco.
Another reason to visit Liberia is its incredibly unique national parks! Guanacaste is filled with preserved areas that go from rainforests to marine wonders! And they are all available for you to explore! On your visit you can do anything from hiking, to zip lining, canopy, snorkeling and even scuba diving!
Although there are countless National Parks in Guanacaste, there are two that are located right in Liberia: Rincon de la Vieja National Park and Santa Rosa National Park.
Because of the expansion caused by the airport, Liberia now offers countless restaurants and bars that you can enjoy. Here you will also be able to find every need such as supermarkets, drug stores and even your occasional gym.
Liberia is located on the northwest area of Costa Rica, about 215 kilometers from the capital of San Jose. The drive will take you about 4-5 hours depending on the traffic. Don’t have a car? Not to worry! You can also rent one quickly and easy from Solid Car Rental right at the airport’s terminal!
