Why Vacation in Guanacaste?
Why should you consider a vacation in Guanacaste, Costa Rica? Because it could be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made, that’s why! Our first vacation to Costa Rica was in 2001. We immediately fell in love with the laid-back vibe, and the absolute beauty all around. From the stunning beaches to the top of the mountains, the landscape and abundance of birds and wildlife are beyond comparison.
As a result of that first trip, our lives kick started into how to do it. And where? We always returned to Guanacaste. Specifically, Playa Junquillal. It called to us. We answered that call because that’s what you do when the universe is going out of its way to get your attention.
Here you will also find Playa Venado, Playa Blanca, Playa Callejones, Playa Negra, and Playa Avellanas. Each beach community has their own local flare, and all are worth checking out.
We have vacation rentals, and properties listed for sale, so please browse our site and let us know how we can help.
Guanacaste - The Gold Coast
The Guanacaste province is the northern Pacific region of Costa Rica. This is the perfect vacation destination to do everything you ever dreamed of, or absolutely nothing at all. Enjoy amazing untouched beaches with sunsets (and moon sets!) over the Pacific Ocean. Dine on outstanding fresh food in local restaurants found in every small community. And adventure awaits on jungle river, waterfall and volcano tours, hiking, caving, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, surfing, zip lining, horseback tours, an abundance of birdwatching and wildlife, golfing and much more!
We have two seasons here: Summer, our dry season and high season, runs from November through April. The dry season offers hot, sunny days with a slim-to-none chance of rain. Winter, our “Green Season” from May through October, is when you can expect to have some rain, and the entire area transforms into a lush green tropical jungle oasis. Both seasons bring their own beauty, so we always recommend that return guests try different times of year for a new experience all together.
Playa Junquillal is also home to our local sea turtle preservation project, Verdi Azul. This project has received global recognition and was featured in the New York Times. Many students from all over the world have traveled here to participate in this once in a lifetime Costa Rica experience. Volunteer to give a helping hand, go on night tours walking the beach watching for turtles to come from the sea to the sand to lay their eggs. Or, release baby turtles into the Pacific ocean at sunset. An experience that you will NEVER forget!
