Guanacaste Vacations

Located on Costa Rica's northwest Pacific shore, Guanacaste is known for its warm climate, incredible bird watching and its excellent surfing, snorkeling, and beaches. Sprinkled along the coast are bays and peninsulas. There are a significant number of protected areas, including coastal, mountainous, terrestrial, and aquatic ecosystems where life develops with exuberance. Guanacaste's climate is in total contrast to the rest of the country. It is the driest region of Costa Rica, with a mixture of forests, beaches, extensive plains, and an impressive volcano range. From November through April, the plains receive no rain, but in the wet season, everything turns green.
