About Guanacaste

People looking to relocate to Costa Rica have no doubt heard of the magically beautiful regions of pristine nature. No doubt one of the regions most talked about is Guanacaste. With its bustling hot spots, it is sure to excite even the most traveled, just as it delights nature lovers with its vast biodiversity. This unique mixture makes Guanacaste a near-perfect wonderland for any ex-pat.

Surrounded by farmland of the richest soil, sparkling natural waterfalls, and curious wildlife, Guanacaste offers opportunities for both city adventures and inland exploration. The entire region is sparsely populated making it a peaceful, relaxing retreat for visitors and residents alike. It’s no wonder the lively ex-pat community here extols the virtues of everything Guanacaste. Rolling hills, stunning pastures, and sunny beaches offer something for everyone no matter their mood.

Start by exploring area volcanoes and hiking up forested hills. The lengthy sunny days offer ample opportunity to trek for miles encountering native species. Sit under a tree canopy under dappled sunlight and enjoy a picnic. Stand under hidden waterfalls and swim in refreshing pools of glistening, clear water.

Braver naturists can take a zipline to the bottom of the mountains, soaring through misty cloud forests. Less brave souls can ride horses to the summit and enjoy spectacular views over the valley.

Don’t forget to explore Rincon de la Vieja National park where you’ll enjoy over 34,000 acres of undisturbed, rugged landscape. Enjoy a unique beach experience at Playa Hermosa, nestled between mountains in total seclusion. Palo Verde National Park and Santa Rosa National Park also feature hundreds of native species and miles of hiking trails ready to be explored.

Let’s not forget the pristine beaches where relaxing on soft sand melts your cares away. Snorkeling, kayaking, and sport fishing are popular water activities that won’t disappoint. After a day of fishing relax in a local café and enjoy native cuisine, listening to music. Cultural encounters with native Ticos are not to be missed, as the local population is both friendly and proud of their ancient heritage.

Cultural discovery can be found in local boutiques and handmade crafts, but there are also modern shops filled with every modern convenience one could wish for. Life in Guanacaste is relaxed and residents adhere to a laidback lifestyle. There is no stress but rather a “Pura Vida” vibe in this magnificent region making it a favorite for tourists and new residents.

A peaceful, simple life is possible in Guanacaste and that’s the way locals like it. Relax in parks listening to the chatter of wild macaws, sipping some of the best locally-grown coffee you’ll ever taste. Watch the scooters whizzing by as you greet your friends at the local restaurant. It’s an easy, carefree life in Guanacaste that captures the imagination.
