Volcano in Guanacaste, Costa RicaCOSTA RICA GUANACASTE PROVINCE
The northwestern province is named after the large umbrella-like trees prevalent in the zone. It encompasses a vast area of diverse topography, from the boiling mud pots of Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, to the sun-drenched beaches of the Pacific coast.

Santa Rosa and Guanacaste National Parks are vital protective areas for the Dry Pacific climatic zone. Santa Rosa is also a very important historic site and protects remains of structures dating from the colonial period and Costa Rica's struggles for independence. The seasonal lake of Palo Verde National Park attracts the largest concentration of waterfowl and wading birds in Central America.

Probably the most unique charactor of Guanacaste is its string of active volcanos. It has also been called, "Costa Rica's cowboy country" because of a variety of painted landscapes, from the dusty, old cattle towns in the north to the humid, mist-swathed cloud forest high in the hills. Met by the ocean in two places, Guanacaste touches Golfo de Nicoya near it's southern end, and northward, reaches out to the open Pacific Ocean. Inland, the Laguna de Arenal at the foot of the Arenal Volcano is Costa Rica's largest lake and is surrounded by various foliage and wildlife well worth a visit.  Many that do not want to fly to San Jose Airport will  fly to Liberia's Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport
