Guanacaste Vacations & Travel Tips

Fast Facts

The Guanacaste tree, with its wide crown of greenery, was declared Costa Rica’s national tree on August 31, 1959.

This diverse country, with more than 500,000 varieties of species, offers much-needed refuge to around ten percent of the world’s wildlife.

Christopher Columbus arrived in Costa Rica in 1502, dubbing the colony rich coast. The country is clearly rich, however, in natural wonders. Today, it has become a leading producer of coffee and bananas, crops that grow well in the predominantly volcanic soil.
