Guanacaste (North Pacific)
We sometimes refer to our Pacific Northwest as the little California of Costa Rica. There are many beaches to be enjoyed in this very sunny region. It holds the last tropical-dry forest remaining on the planet. The coastline is still relatively unspoiled and it is home to wild parrots, monkeys, sea turtles amongst lots of colorful flora and fauna. This part of Costa Rica also enjoys a very diverse terrain which ranges from towering active volcanoes to lush sugarcane fields and from thick lagoons to unburdened beaches. This area encompasses 4 of Costa Rica’s most stunning national parks; The Guanacaste, The Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, The Santa Rosa and the Miravalles Volcano National Parks.
There are still many spectacular secluded boutique accommodations. The best part, most people agree, are the bilingual guided adventures, we at Tachiz Travel, can arrange for you to enjoy here regardless of the hotel accommodations that are more appealing to you. Although temperatures are warm, the natural wonders are abundant. The ocean water is at body temperature.
