    I love Liberia for many reasons...it is historical, the people are friendly and warm, and I feel like it is unique from the rest of Costa Rica. While many cities are now overrun with tourists and non-native people, I think that Liberia has maintained it's sense of Costa Rican culture and customs. I was in Liberia to study Spanish and I found a real gem of a school called Instituto Estelar Bilingue, in the center of the city. The school helped me learn Spanish fast and showed me the true beauty that surrounds Liberia. You literally can drive one hour in any direction and end up at a volcano, a national park, a waterfall, or another country (Nicaragua). I loved Liberia and I can't wait to go back

    Small town , with baking services, hospitals, this town gives services to all the beach towns nearby. there are restaurants, stores, pharmacies. The most important thing is the international airport, with direct flights from USA, Canada San Salvador and Panama.

    Liberia , generally Guanacaste is one of my favorites place in the world. Adventure, beach, volcanoes, luxury , comfort are some of the characteristic of Guanacaste

    Liberia is a nice town, but doesn't have a lot to it. It's kind of a pass through place. It's got an airport, decent stores and gas stations, but you're a stretch from the beaches and not in the mountains either. It's a much needed crossroads on the way to other places, but not a tourism destination in and of itself...

    Much more modern than the rest of Costa Rica but a great place to relax by the beach.

Description

Known as "Ciudad Blanca" (the white city) due to the many colonial-style whitewashed houses, Liberia is the hub for Costa Rica's northwestern Guanacaste region. Built by pioneers and cattle ranchers, today the small city hosts Costa Rica's only other international airport outside of San Jose. It serves as a gateway to Pacific Coast beaches such as Playa del Coco, Tamarindo, Playa Hermosa and the ... read more
Papagayo peninsula, while offering a variety of shops, restaurants and services within it's own limits. Note the unique "puerta del sol" corner doors on the older buildings and take time away from the beach towns to explore the many protected dry forest reserves and volcanic features that lie just a short drive outside of town.
