Powered by Profimercadeo

Guanacaste is named after the Costa Rican national Tree. Its geography is hilly, with many topographical changes, including green-covered volcanoes of the Cordillera de Guanacaste mountain range. Guanacaste is the most sparsely populated of all the provinces, making iran ideal vacation spot that isn't too crowded. Politically it is divided into 11 cantons. The main economic activity is tourism, as its beaches are great scenic attractions, and its hot climate is ideal. Liberia hosts the second international airport of Costa Rica, called International Airport Daniel Oduber.
