GALLERY: Visit Guanacaste top beaches. Hot for 2017!



As Guanacaste spans the northwestern corner of Costa Rica, it should come as no surprise that this lively province is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Tamarindo is sunny throughout nearly the entire year, and the weather remains pleasant without much humidity.

Travelers can do everything from surfing, ATV Tours, snorkeling, zip line, horseback riding, hiking and more. Sitting between two mountains, Playa Hermosa is a great location for travelers who wish to have a laid back experience away from crowds. Hermosa is near Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Palo Verde National Park and Santa Rosa National Park, so there are plenty of opportunities to experience wildlife in this area.

Other pristine shorelines in this region include Playa Panama, Playa Grande, Pan de Azucar, Playa Ocotal, Playa Flamingo and Playas del Coco beaches.
