with over sixty kilometres of Pacific coastline from Playa Panama in the north to Playa Junquillal in the south, Costa Rica's Gold Coast offers dozens of beaches, with sands ranging from sugar white to the browns and greys of volcanic sand, and a range of coastal ecosystems to explore.
Tamarindo and the surrounding area is one of the most popular districts in Guanacaste province on Costa Rica's Gold Coast, famous for its natural beauty, surfing and relaxing beach life, and offering all of the modern amenities that people expect.
Getting to the Gold Coast is simplest through the new and modern Daniel Oduber International Airport located just outside Liberia in the north of Guanacaste. Located about an hour away from Gold Coast communities, on average, the airport receives flights from all over the world, many of which are direct from a number of hubs in Canada and continental USA.
If you want to visit the capital of Costa Rica, the San Jose national airport is another option, from which you can take a local 45 minute flight to either the Liberia airport, or the local airport just outside of Tamarindo. Alternatively, you could rent a car and make the scenic four-hour drive across the mountains to the Gold Coast.
