Guanacaste & Nicoya Peninsula holidays

The Nicoya peninsula stretches down along the northern Pacific coastline of Costa Rica and is known for its beautiful beaches, dramatic coastal scenery, numerous national parks and amazing sunsets. Guanacaste province occupies the northern part of the Nicoya Peninsula and, aside from the coastal attractions, also guards the largest remaining area of dry forest in Central America. The beach town of Tamarindo has a laid-back atmosphere. Here you can relax on the sandy beaches, explore the mangroves by boat or take an excursion to see nesting leatherback turtles (November to March). The southern part of Nicoya is more remote and secluded. Intimate hideaways such as Punta Islita, perched on a hillside above a private beach, or the exclusive Latitude 10 in Santa Teresa, close to the tip of the peninsula, provide the chance to relax and enjoy spectacular ocean sunsets.
