Considered the most colonial of Costa Rican cities, Liberia safeguards its heritage through simple adobe architecture topped with red-tile-roofs. It's locally known as the "white city" because many of its buildings are made with ignimbrite, a rock that gives them a pale washed color. Culture and tradition come alive every July in Liberia, where colorful fiestas feature rodeos, typical dancing, savory food and plenty of partying.
Wherever you're coming from or whatever your final destination may be, Liberia is a mandatory stop. If you're traveling by land it's the perfect place to take a break from the driving, fill up on gas, and enjoy a wide variety of restaurants, museums, nightlife and the vibrant north Pacific life. However, the fastest way to get there is flying directly into Daniel Oduber International Airport. Around 40 flights arrive every week from the United States through four different airlines.
Flying from San Jose via charter services is also a good idea, since it saves you about three hours on the road and the low rates make it quite affordable.Public transportation, taxies and car rentals are available at the terminal for your convenience.
Liberia is located at the heart of northern Guanacaste and the road forks a hundred times taking you to the numerous beaches located in the region, so take your pick and enjoy the ride.
