Additional Location Information
Only an hour drive from the Liberia Airport (LIR,) Playa Grande is centrally located between Playa Tamarindo and Playa Flamingo. Truly one of the most unique, unspoiled vacation spots in Costa Rica, its 2 mile-long crescent shaped coastline, of warm blue waters and honey colored sand forms the Las Baulas Marine National Park. A sanctuary for the nesting giant leatherback turtles.
Imagine surfing directly out the back door, scanning the trees for howler monkeys, sea shelling along the beach and gazing at the stars. In the privacy of your villa take delight swinging in a hammock, indulging in a spa treatment, or simply smiling at a sunset.
Go explore the estuary in a canoe, spotting birds, iguanas and crocodiles basking on the sun-drenched riverbanks. Snorkel Playa Conchal made up of billions of crushed shells. Attend a weekend fiesta, featuring bull riding, traditional food, marimba music, and dancing. To end the day sail along the shoreline as dolphins frolic beside you.
For thrill seekers and nature lovers alike enter the realms of the forest via a canopy tour. Get your adrenalin pumping inner tubing or riverafting on the Rio Negro. Visit Rincon De La Vieja to enjoy great hiking, waterfalls, boiling mud pots, sulpher vents and a large diversity of wildlife species. Tee-off at the course designed by Robert Trent Jones which meanders through a rolling terrain with breathtaking ocean views. Get in the action of deep blue water fishing, targeting sailfish, marlin, yellowfin tuna, dorado, wahoo, roosterfish, and snapper. Experience the rich Guanacaste folklore and ancient Chorotega Indian traditions of pottery making in village of Guatil.
