ABOUT GUANACASTEThere is more to Guanacaste than its Golden Coast
Guanacaste is a province on the NW coast of Costa Rica that is much more than the pristine jungled coast line that the tourists and expats so enjoy, It is home to many bucket list level experiences that happen mostly off the beautiful beaches.
Guanacaste, which translates to “ear” in Portugese referring to its giant ear shaped seed pods is a giant umbrella like hardwood tree indigenous to the lowlands of the northern Costa Rica region and from where the Guanacaste province takes its name. Located on the northwest Pacific coast of Costa Rica bordering Nicaragua, Guanacaste includes 400 scalloped miles of coastal jungle, volcanic rock, incredible weather and breathtaking world class scenery. Definitely something for everyone. Guanacaste is very popular with tourists and expats alike since international air sevice to the province began in 2012. There are many learning and cultural experiences here for families including active volcanoes, cloud forests, healing volcanic mud springs and a new World Heritage SIte spanning the Pacific coast to the Caribbean lowlands which is considered to be one of the most important intact ecological habitats in the world with an incredible array of exotic threatened species. By all measures a stunning commitment to preservation and ecology.
