Papagayo / Playas del Coco

Guanacaste is a province of Costa Rica on the Northwest Coast of the country and is often referred to as the North Pacific region, or the Gold Coast of Costa Rica for it’s golden sandy beaches. The most sparsely populated province of Costa Rica, Guanacaste is considered to be unspoiled by urban growth, but tourism flourishes in this area with the copious accommodations and plethora of activities to choose from.

The climate in this region is unique to the rest of Costa Rica as it gets less rain than most any point south in the country. Typical tropical, beach-like weather is common from November to April which makes it the high season for tourism as it’s much warmer than typical winters and less humid than most beach states. And May to October sees a more tropical feel through the day with comfortable breezy evenings, punctuated by semi-daily showers that are usually brief and welcome. The unique climate contributes to the tropical dry forests as a natural adaptation to the seasonally dry conditions.
