On July 25th we celebrate the Annexation of Guanacaste, our North Pacific beautiful province.
Guanacaste used to be a little province that in the colonial days passed through several civil stages, from being independent, to being part of NIcaragua, being part of Costa Rica, and back to Nicaragua. When our independence finally happened in 1821 they were actually part of our neighbor to the North, but three years later, in 1824, and due to the many civil wars in NIcaragua the “guanacastecos” voted and decided to Costa Ricans by their own will.
Guanacaste becomes our seventh province and nowadays the second most important tourism hub in the country, with its Liberia International Airport and dozens of beaches, volcanoes, forests, hotels and big resorts. It is a most biodiverse area!
Guanacaste is about beaches, sun bathing, exclusive resorts and warm waters… However, there are… At least! twelve activities that you should experience that are not simply just getting a tan:
