General Information About Liberia Vacations
Liberia, the capital of Guanacaste province in Costa Rica, is a charming city with Spanish colonial history, serving as a great access point to exploring the many natural wonders of this ecotourism hotspot. Liberia vacations are the perfect holiday solution for the real nature lover, and Liberia packages are often considered to be the best option for exploring the Guanacaste region, offering some of Costa Rica's best resort hotels and nature parks. Liberia package holidays are not recommended for great nightlife, shopping, or dining experiences, although limited opportunities do exist – this destination is all about mother nature. Major Liberia vacation attractions include the natural wonders of volcanos, cloud forests, hot springs, volcanic sand beaches, and the incredible diversity of Costa Rican flora and fauna. No Liberia vacation would be complete without a trip to see the active Arenal Volcano, located just a few hours from San Jose. Equally impressive is the Monteverde Cloud Forest in the Central Mountains – a hiker's paradise, home to a multitude of mammal, bird, and insect species. The avid birdwatcher should consider a Liberia vacation at least once in a lifetime. Costa Rican culture is not to be dismissed, and the Guanacaste Day Festival in July offers a great way to experience the richness of Costa Rican culture.
All-inclusive Liberia vacation packages appeal to a wide range of people, including singles, families, and couples. With such outstanding geography, plant and animal diversity, it is no wonder that Liberia vacations attract active nature lovers in search of ecotourism adventure. Mobility is not an issue while on an all-inclusive Liberia package holiday, and tourists tend to move easily from place to place via taxis, car or jeep rentals. Driving distances to points of interest may be considerable (90 minutes or more), but driving in Costa Rica is fairly manageable and provides great access to secluded natural wonders. For those who venture out, be sure to bring along adequate supplies of bottled water – drinking the local water is not recommended. Many tourists on an all-inclusive Liberia package holiday arrange excursions from the resort hotels, which is a great alternative to a self-guided adventure.
Sand and Sun on Your Liberia Vacation
Although Liberia vacations are not known for great beaches, the unique volcanic sand beaches in Liberia offer great seclusion for those who can appreciate their natural beauty. Beaches in the region are not the typical Caribbean white sand beaches with calm, clear turquoise waters, but feature dark volcanic sands and darker, rougher Pacific waters. The only white sand beach in the area is located at Playa Conchal, and this is a man-made feature where the white sand was brought into the area to create a tourist attraction. However, Liberia vacation beaches still offer great serenity and natural beauty, and long walks on beaches such as the long stretch at the Riu are a nice feature that should not be overlooked.
Liberia package holiday weather is typically hot, humid, tropical, and relatively dry during the winter season. The optimal time for an all-inclusive Liberia vacation is from November through March, avoiding the rainy season from May through October. The lush, mountainous and volcanic landscape is perfect for ecotourism, and the weather in Costa Rica supports great biodiversity. An all-inclusive Liberia vacation is set in a mostly rural environment, where the impact of agriculture and sugar cane production are apparent, decorating the local hillsides. The area immediately surrounding Liberia is relatively flat bordering on swampland, and the variety of flora throughout the region is magnificent.
Hurricane season, with its unpredictability of storm events, typically lasts from July through December, peaking from mid-August to mid-November. Although Liberia vacations are not often impacted by hurricanes, the possibility remains. However, when booking Liberia vacation packages, you can rest assured that tour operators will not fly you into a hurricane and will act fast to get you out in the event of any development if your holiday plans are affected. You can find great Liberia vacation package deals during hurricane season, and the economic advantage is well worth considering. We recommend that you speak with one of our tripcentral agents to fully understand the great value benefit vs. limited risk associated with travel to this region during hurricane season.
Things to See and Do on Your Liberia Package Vacation
As noted, Liberia vacations are not known for great nightlife, shopping or dining. Nightlife on an all-inclusive Liberia vacation is extremely limited, and tourists tend to focus on daytime activities in this natural playground. For shopping, there is a local mall and vendors of local craftworks, but shopping is limited. Most all-inclusive Liberia package holiday travellers tend to take advantage of the good value inherent in all-inclusive resort-based dining, but there are some local restaurants to be explored in smaller towns in the region – rice and beans is a local specialty, as well as great seafood. Banking and ATM access is available, but not always easily accessible due to the relative isolation of many resort hotels and points of interest, so it is best to plan ahead.
In addition to the wonderful ecotourism activities offered, Liberia vacations feature good sporting activity options that include deep sea fishing, zip lining, hiking and soccer. Scuba and snorkelling enthusiasts will find good options available for exploring the coastal waters. For those who would like to take a break from the excitement of ecotourism, Liberia vacations offer a couple of golf courses for the leisure golfer. Although Liberia is not considered a golfer's destination, the Paradisus offers a decent course.
All-Inclusive Liberia Vacation Package Availability, Accommodations, and Value
Liberia vacation package flights are available only from Toronto, with weekly charters offered throughout the year. Scheduled flight service into San Jose provides alternative access to the region. All-inclusive Liberia package hotels are spread out through the Guanacaste province, and feature 80s-90s construction of typically low-rise structures that are built into the hilly terrain, requiring a greater than average number of steps to navigate the changes in elevation. All-inclusive packages are popular with tourists to Liberia, Costa Rica, where travellers take advantage of the good all-inclusive value and still enjoy the many great day trips to the surrounding points of interest.
For those planning a wedding in the sun, all-inclusive Liberia package weddings are growing in popularity, and can easily be arranged with the help of one of our tripcentral agents. To ensure availability and limited hassle, book well in advance. All-inclusive Liberia package holidays offer good value, but tourists should be prepared to spend a bit of money on day trips to take advantage of all that a Liberia vacation has to offer. Liberia, and Costa Rica in general, is an excellent destination for ecotourism, with wonderful day trips that offer some of the best wildlife viewing in the world.
