The Guanacaste province which can be found at the northwestern part of Costa Rica, is home to the Papagayo. A dozen of the most stunning beaches in the country can be found in Papagayo, which is located on the north pacific coast of the province. One of the main attractions of the gulf is its unspoiled natural beauty.
Costa Rica is teeming with wildlife, and 400 differenst species of animals can be found exclusively on the peninsula, making it ideal for tourists interested in seeing some of the world’s most beautiful and exotic wild life such as the howler monkey and the squirrel monkey.
The peninsula is sparsely populated as well, which would make it an good alternative to the hustle and bustle of San Jose.
You can also find the country’s best hotel, Four Seasons Costa Rica. The establishment was named as one of 2009’s best hotels in the world by Travel + Leisure.
There are no lack of things to do in Papagayo. Outdoor lovers will appreciate the sprawling forests and national parks where they can enjoy the scenic views while hiking. Those who love the seas can go deep sea fishing, snorkeling, surfing in the Peninsula’s crystal clear waters. If you are an avid golfer, there are world class golf courses as well.
Costa Rica is home to many scenic locations, and Papagayo is arguably the crown jewel of the isthmus.
