Some of the best beach hotels of the world are located in the Guanacaste beaches. Guanacaste is well-known for its beaches and sun, and that is exactly what the visitors find throughout the coastal line, where the hotels, cabins and restaurants are located; some luxurious ones, others more modest, but they all guarantee the visitor a perfect option for each budget.

Panama beach, in the north of the province, is one of the best options for tourism. A placid white sand site and calm waters, that invite you to spend a weekend without preoccupations.

Coco Beach is located between the most popular places and known for its nocturnal life and great amount of visitors.

Playa Grande is located in the south and along with the Baulas National Park, it is the sanctuary for thousands of  Baula turtles that come to these coasts every year to lay their eggs.

Tamarindo offers many white sandy beaches and manglares, where sea birds and iguanas live. Therefore it seems a paradise and a perfect place for those who wish to live in harmony with the nature. Many other beaches throughout the Guanacaste coast complete a matchless natural supply.

Beach Carillo, Beach Ostional, Manzanillo or Coyote are some of the destinations that make the biggest Costa Rica province one of the most beautiful places of the country.
