What Not To Miss In Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Coco Beach – One of the main resort towns on the region’s Pacific Coast, Playa del Coco boasts lively culinary, nightlife and beach scenes that draw travelers and locals looking for fun in the sun.
Plenty of boats ply the waters just off the beach, providing excellent opportunities for adventures at sea. Sport fishing in Costa Rica is legendary, and many fishing charters operate from Playa del Coco. Another way to enjoy the ocean breezes and coastline scenery is on a sailing excursion with a stop or two for snorkeling. Some sailing trips visit deserted beaches or linger at sea for a sunset over the Pacific. Although Playa del Coco has no surf, it is a prime jumping-off point for boat trips ferrying surfers to popular surf breaks in Santa Rosa National Park. Vacationers also find the calm waters of Playa del Coco are ideal for stand up paddle boarding. DAE members can learn a new skill with a lesson and guided excursion.
As one of Costa Rica’s liveliest beach towns after dark, Playa del Coco invites travelers and locals to join the fiesta at bars close to the town’s central plaza. Other gathering spots are casinos, discos and restaurants, the latter being widespread throughout town.
Santa Rosa National Park – For travelers who want to get away from it all, the beaches of Santa Rosa National Park are the place to go. In fact, the only time it gets crowded here is in the fall, when thousands of sea turtles storm the beach to lay eggs. This park teems with flora and fauna in immense forests that give way to virgin white-sand beaches. Hike through dense forests, or ride the waves of Witches Rock for some of the best surfing in the world.
Rincon de la Vieja National Park – Further inland, this bountiful parkland is famous for its volcanic craters and diverse wild life. Take a zip line tour or go horseback riding to towering waterfalls. Hike through meadows and forests to the hot springs at the base of the park’s volcano. All the while, be on the lookout for monkeys, sloths and other wildlife that make this park home.
Palo Verde National Park – A must-see for bird-watchers, Palo Verde National Park is one of Costa Rica’s best-kept secrets. Here, the Tempisque River lowlands support tens of thousands of waterfowl and forest bird species. Rent a mountain bike. Or, take a nature cruise with your camera at the ready, while searching for howler monkeys, scarlet macaws and crocodiles. Or, explore Guanacaste from above on a gyrocopter tour with an experienced pilot flying over the ocean, beaches and jungle.
Barra Honda National Park – Not far from Palo Verde, this underground national park features limestone caves that were part of a coral reef millions of years ago. Strap on a headlamp and climbing gear and descend into an underworld filled with dazzling stalactite and stalagmite formations.
River Tours – Take a rafting tour of the exciting rapids of the Tenorio River, while enjoying the area’s lush scenery. By contrast, the calm Corobici River is excellent for families looking for a leisurely float trip down a gorgeous jungle river, surrounded by nature and wildlife.
World Class Spas – Many of Guanacaste’s world-class spas are located along the beachfront. After all these exciting outdoor adventures, soothe tired muscles with a massage, while watching a glorious sunset over the Pacific.
