Guanacaste Costa Rica
Costour is located in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica. Tourism is widespread across Guanacaste’s 5,9oo+ sq. miles and over 400 miles of coastline. Guanacaste’s attractions include ocean, rivers, land, mountains, volcanos, and coastal ecosystems. There are two main commercial areas which are Santa Cruz and Liberia, and five surrounding tourism development centers: Papagayo Gulf area, Playas del Coco, Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, and Tamarindo. Liberia is home to Guanacaste’s own international airport.
The province is tucked in on it’s east side by a group of green-swathed volcanoes forming the Cordillera de Guanacaste (which features Orosi, Rincón de la Vieja, Miravalles and Tenorio volcanos) and the Cordillera de Tilaran. The rivers that flow out of these steep giants make their way down to rolling flatlands and into the Rio Tempisque, which ends up through swampy wetlands and into The Nicoya Gulf. The Rio Tempisque borders one side of the semi-rectangular shaped Nicoya Peninsula which is west of the gulf.
Guanacaste’s climate and culture are far different than other Costa Rican provinces. Guanacaste experiences little rain and lots of heat and sunshine from November to April, resulting in tropical dry forests as a natural adaption to the dry season. Tourists love this dry heat during the North American winter and flock to enjoy the Guanacaste beaches. From May to October, the climate is similar to that of San José, consisting of showers daily and moderate temperatures. Guanacaste is far dryer and considerably warmer than other provinces in the country located in higher elevations.
