Guanacaste is a hidden tropical gem located in Costa Rica known for its sandy beaches, magnificent mountain ranges, and volcanoes. This vacation hub is part of Costa Rica’s natural and cultural heritage as its coastline borders the Pacific Ocean and has a warm climate throughout the year, with natural landscapes ranging from tropical beaches to mountain forests with exotic flora and fauna.
The province is shrouded in history and culture as the region was dominated by the powerful indigenous Chorotega tribe who left behind a rich legacy in the land of Costa Rica. Local and international tourists flock to this region to enjoy the weather and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, which have sporting activities ranging from surfing to snorkeling. The area’s foliage has been incorporated into national parks such as the Rincon de la Vieja National Park, which contains active volcanoes, waterfalls, and greenery that is perfect for hiking and adventure-seeking travelers.
This idyllic tourist destination can be reached from cities in Costa Rica, such as San Jose, by using public and private transport on the Pan-American Highway. However, the primary method of reaching Guanacaste for tourists is through the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, also known as Liberia Airport. This airport attracts visitors from all over the world, including the United States and Europe resulting in a boom in tourism.
Guanacaste Aeropuerto: Revamping The Airport’s Identity
The alternative name for the airport comes from the province’s capital Liberia; however, the name has been a source of confusion for international tourists as Liberia is the name of a prominent African country. For this reason, the airport has decided to revamp its image to appeal to a larger group of international travelers as the unofficial name has been changed to Guanacaste Airport.
The name change better reflects what Costa Rica’s second busiest airport represents – an exotic tourist destination with nature and culture. According to Cesar Jaramillo, general manager of CORIPORT and operator of Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport, “Guanacaste Airport will be our spearhead to position the province and its beauties, as well as all the facilities that the terminal offers to tourists and airlines. Its fresh image represented by a turtle shows the environmental commitment of our country and the kind of tourist we are looking for.
