How to Get to Your Vacation Rental in Guanacaste

When you rent any of the many exquisite villas in Guanacaste for your next vacation in Costa Rica, booking your flight should not be difficult as we have a world class international airport located right here in the heart of Guanacaste. The Daniel Oduber Quiros International airport is known by its call sign LIR and colloquially referred to as the Liberia Airport as it’s located outside the city of Liberia, capital of the province. Airlines covet a route to this destination as the planes normally arrive full. A word of caution: airlines change their schedules so check if they have a different schedule for the time of your trip.

Once you arrive in Guanacaste you have options to get to your villa

  • If you are renting an all-inclusive vacation rental, the transportation to and from the airport is included
  • But if you selected one of the other fabulous luxury villas, you can add transportation to the deal and our driver will meet you as you exit customs and help with the luggage, then drive you to your secret resort in Costa Rica. Same in reverse when it’s time to return home. You can also elect to hire a driver to take you around during your stay, or you might prefer to rent a car and do your own driving. Our concierge can arrange a rental car to be brought to your villa and picked up there when it’s time to go.

If you already booked your flight to the airport in San Jose (SJO)

  • You can take a smaller plane and fly to LIR from where you can have our driver pick you up and take you to your villa
  • Or you can drive a rental car our concierge can arrange for you, from SJO to Guanacaste. However, the drive is approximately 6 hours so you might consider this carefully on top of all your prior traveling time to get to Costa Rica.


What to do in Guanacaste- basically, anything you want!

From any of the magnificent rental villas in Guanacaste you have the option to do any of the following:


  • Surf in waves suitable for beginners or for the experienced, or take lessons if this is your first time
  • Snorkel
  • Scuba diving in our magnificent underwater world. Different options available including classes for certification at all levels from beginners up.
  • River floating for those who want to enjoy a quiet ride while observing the flora and fauna on the river shores, or river rafting for the ones who want more lively action.
  • Day or half day excursion in one of several boats available with snacks and refreshments included
  • Day or half day sport fishing expeditions. Catch, photograph and release the designated species and bring the other fish home for your cook or private chef to prepare for dinner in your villa. These waters in the area of the Gulf of Papagayo are a favorite place for seasoned sports fishermen who know that large species abound in the Pacific Ocean.
  • Sailing or an excursion in a catamaran. Dolphins like to playfully swim near the boats and often do so right by their side, to everyone’s delight.
  • There are plenty of gorgeous beaches all over Guanacaste (many viewable from your villa), from white sandy beaches to dark volcanic sands, golden sands, you name it. The beach at Playa Conchal is made of seashells ground by the elements and is sparkling white.
  • You can rent jet skis, banana boats, or parasail in some of the beaches.
  • Another fun activity and a different way to explore the shoreline is stand up paddling.
  • Water skiing is also something you can enjoy here


On top of their list for many is a trip to explore the famed rain forests of Costa Rica. The fact is that no matter where you are staying, you are never too far from the forest. And while the rainforest seems to garner most of the press, there are other kinds of forests that also merit a visit.

  • The National Park Rincon de la Vieja in Guanacaste has a dry forest with a different kind of flora and fauna. This park is named for the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano and the dry forest is on the foothills of the volcano. It also has some beautiful waterfalls. Waterfalls abound in Costa Rica because of the mountainous terrain in some parts.
  • Borinquen Adventure Ranch offers rustic but elegant installations where you can enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch and feed your inner self with a relaxing mud bath for your skin (and for fun!) then wash it off by immersing yourself in the hot springs, where spring water is naturally heated by the volcano. This is very relaxing. The ranch also has pailas, facilities for zip lining and the option of exploring the park on horseback.
  • The Barra Honda caves is a series of natural caves of incredible beauty. This is a guided tour that shows a different aspect of the variety of surfaces you can experience in Costa Rica.
  • Santa Rosa National Park is another protected area which also has historical value for Costa Rica from times past when there was a conflict with Nicaragua and the people at the Santa Rosa Hacienda played key roles in this decisive occasion. Today they offer typical Hacienda amenities such as horseback riding, zip lining, etc.
  • Rio Celeste is a very unique experience. It translates to Blue River because this river is really and naturally blue in color. The intense color of the water comes about from the sulfur content of the water from the proximity to a volcano. The water is harmless to bathe in and the vivid shade of blue is very impacting. There is a particular spot where the blue waters of the spring join with a different spring which is muddier looking making a stark contrast at the point where they merge. There are facilities with amenities here too, for horseback riding, zip lining, and others and a place where you can have lunch as well.

While zip lining is fun and gives you a bird’s eye view of the forest from the top of the tree canopy, this is not the only way to catch that view from the top. Hanging bridges on several parks allow you to literally walk at or above tree top level and feast your eyes on the awesomeness of nature.

And of course, you cannot visit Costa Rica without seeing the Rain Forest in person! Guided tours will take you deep into the forest on well- maintained paths. Though you are safe at all times, you cannot help but experience the sensation of being back in time, to when humans were more in sync with nature in the primordial roots of civilization. The movie Jurassic Park was filmed in the rain forests of Costa Rica, where you will be standing at that moment. For a moment, allow yourself to go back in your imagination to that time when giant creatures roamed these same forests and life was so different. Enjoy also the wild orchids growing naturally on trees and the Morpho butterflies, large, intensely blue, beautiful butterflies that can be seen in their natural habitat. You might, perhaps, catch a glimpse of some other inhabitants of the forest. You will hear the birds of which Costa Rica has an immense variety, and might catch sight of some monkeys on the trees. Perhaps other animals too. There are the tiny frogs, the size of a thumb nail and all kinds of interesting little creatures. Your tour guide is an expert naturalist who will point all this to you.

The only thing missing now is your selecting one of the breathtaking villas in Guanacaste and booking your flight! Remember your Costa Rica Star Villa concierge is waiting for your call, eager to guide you through the planning of a flawless vacation for you and your family. Give them a call!
