Liberia, the capital of Guanacaste is a bustling town located in the northwest part of Costa Rica. It is home to several National Parks and beaches and also holds the country’s national airport – the Daniel Oduber International.
This province is known as one of the ultimate destination for tourists. The shores of Liberia are dotted with immaculate and unspoiled beaches and because of its proximity to the airport, more facilities are available here in comparison to other provincial sites.
Liberia’s claims to fame are its numerous tourist attractions such as the Rincon de la Viejo Volcano, the Arenal Volcano and countless of other hot springs and Natural Parks. Known colloquially as ‘La Cuidad Blanca’, (the white city) taking a walk along the streets of this town will make visitors feel as though they were transported to another world. House after house is built with ‘bahareque’, a special type of white clay which gives the houses here its whitewashed color.
The temperatures in Liberia, as with other towns in Costa Rica, enthrall visitors. Hot days read at a comfortable 30 degree Celsius on the thermometer while cold ones drop to a snuggle – enducing 20 degrees. Humidity is at a well balanced 39% which ensures enough sunshine to enjoy your holiday while taking considerable pleasure in the rain at the end of the day.
Liberia is frequented not only as the final destination on a holiday trip but sometimes, also as a convenient stopover. Many first time travelers start their adventure here and then move inwards to explore more of the country. Some use this province as a break in the journey, enroute to other provinces that need further travel; but whatever the purpose of the is, there is no doubt that Liberia is one of the coolest places to visit – literally.
