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. Herds of cattle still roam the grasslands here and the province is home to the less-explored Rincon de la Vieja National Park and an active volcano, geothermal springs and boiling mud pools. Another attraction are the turquoise waters of Rio Celeste, while the city of Liberia has an international airport  and offers an alternative gateway to the country. The Nicoya peninsula stretches down along the northern Pacific coastline and is known for its beautiful beaches, dramatic coastal scenery, numerous national parks and amazing sunsets. The somewhat developed beach town of Tamarindo retains a laid-back atmosphere and it is possible to relax here, explore the mangroves by boat or take an excursion to see nesting leatherback turtles. The southern part of Nicoya is more remote and has secluded hideaways such as Punta Islita, perched on a hillside above a private beach.
