The boiling Guanacaste
Guanacaste province is renowned for its arid climate from December to April, its beaches as far as the eye can see and its exuberant marine biodiversity. While seaside resorts such as Tamarindo and Sámara meet the growing tourist demand, many beaches remain unspoilt in the region.
A protected Pacific coast
Among the protected areas of Marino Las Baulas, Santa Rosa, Ostional and Camaronal, more than 70 kilometres of coastline are preserved in Guanacaste. Many threatened or endangered species have found refuge there, including Luth turtles and humpback whales. Some twenty beaches awarded by the "Ecological Blue Flag Programme" attest to the commitment of local communities in preserving the environment.
Evidence of geological activity
Costa Rica's unique biodiversity density owes its origin to the emergence of the Central American isthmus 15 million years ago. This land has become a meeting place between the biodiversities of the North and the South American continents. The caves of Barra Honda National Park and the volcanoes Rincón de la Vieja, Tenorio and Miravales allow you to discover these geological phenomena.
An ideal place for spiritual tourism
Some localities of Guanacaste such as Nosara are internationally known for the spiritual retreats that are organized there. Combined with the observation of the fauna and flora as well as sporting activities such as surfing or kayaking, the practice of yoga is ideal to recharge your batteries during a stay in Costa Rica.
