Imagine everlasting summer w/fabulous beaches & warm, clear water. Surfing is sensational & world-class at places like Tamarindo, Avellana Beach, Witch's Rock at PlayaNaranjo, Playa Negra where the famous surf movie Endless Summer II was filmed.
You can find excellent scuba diving & snorkeling off of Flamingo Bay, Ocotal Beach & Conchal Beach. There are famous nesting sites for the giant leatherback sea turtle (Playa Baulas & Playa Grande) & also Olive Ridley sea turtles(Ostional Beach). Guanacaste known for horses, ranches & cowboys. Horseback ride down a long beach or along forest trails is an amazing experience! Definitely plan a visit to the SantaRosa National Park w/pretty trails through dry tropical forest, historical sites, good camping & beautiful beaches!!
