Weaving alongside Costa Rica’s northwest shoulder alongside the Pacific Ocean, the province of Guanacaste, also referred to as the Gold Coast, is among the most visited areas within the nation, and for good purpose. 5-star resorts and boutique inns mingle with the province’s dry tropical forests and eponymous mountains, whereas a lot of pristine seashores appeal to solar worshipers and surfers.
As Guanacaste’s largest and most developed seashore city, Tamarindo bustles with vacationers from all around the world but provides off the laid-back vibe one would count on from a surf vacation spot. Its downtown is dotted with mom-and-pop shops, “sodas”, the informal family-owned eating places that dot Costa Rica, and enjoyable nightlife choices.
About 90 minutes north of Tamarindo, Peninsula Papagayo is a 1,400-acre non-public neighborhood bordering a protected wildlife space that can be a UNESCO World Heritage Website. This ecological wonderland presents a few of the most unique properties in Costa Rica, to not point out wellness, tranquility and outside adventures by Papagayo Explorers Membership.
