About Guanacaste

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 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, incredible weather and breathtaking world class resorts. 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 bucket list level 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. Tamarindo is the admitted hub of the province and my starting point for coverage of Guanacaste and the 40 main beach towns of Costa Rica’s spectacular “Gold Coast.
