Folklore Capital of Costa Rica
Volcano - Natural Spas - Rainforest
Although Rincon de la Vieja does not have the reputation of Arenal Volcano, it's no less a mesmerizing sight. Surrounded by picturesque landscapes and lush forests, the thermal springs with hot pools and mineral mud baths in the region are truly unique. The Rincon de la Vieja National Park has become one of the most popular day tour destinations for guests staying at the Guanacaste beach resorts. Rincon de la Vieja is the closest rainforest park to the Guanacaste beaches and can easily be visited as a day tour. However, with its close proximity to Liberia, the capital of Guanacaste, and other national parks, the area is a great destination unto itself.
The region features quaint hotels with an emphasis on Costa Rican culture, folklore and nature, such as Buena Vista Lodge, and ecotourism lodges catering to nature lovers and adventure travelers, such as Hacienda Guachipelin and Hotel Borinquen Mountain Resort & Spa.
Liberia is home to the Daniel Oduber International Airport. Tourist attractions include the Liberia Mia zoo and souvenir shops. Stays in the city are recommended for guests with late night arrivals or early morning departures. There are two Best Western Hotels, and a Hilton Garden Inn is scheduled to open in late 2008.
