Guanacaste Beaches

Guanacaste Province

The beaches along Guanacaste's shore - Hermosa, El Coco, Flamingo, Tamarindo, and Nosara are some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. With a drier, more arid climate than other parts of the country, this area offers a wealth of water sports; surfing, world-class sportfishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, etc.


On some parts of the coast there are beaches where Leatherback and other Sea Turtles come to lay their eggs.


Pacific Olive Ridley/ March-October - Santa Rosa, Nosara

Leatherback/ October-March- Flamingo, Playa Grande, Tamarindo Pacific Green/ July- December - Santa Rosa.

Guanacaste beaches
For those interested in more than beaches and crystal waters, there are the tropical and humid premontane transition forests that characterize the Santa Rosa National Park with it's extensive savannas and Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Before arriving at it's exciting fumaroles - known as "Las Pailas" - you can walk through thousands of trees, and contemplate a huge diversity of birds and butterflies as well as lush vegetation. Fascinating mud cones of different sizes and shapes continually bubble before your eyes.
