Tourism in Liberia has been growing since the opening of its airport, with more and more international visitors using the city as a starting point for explorations of the country's northwest.
Get in touch with nature at Zipline and River Rafting & Tubing. Your inner history buff will appreciate Church of La Ermita La Agonia and Immaculate Church of Concepcion de Maria. Change things up with a short trip to Hacienda El Viejo Wetlands in Area de Conservacion Guanacaste (about 58 minutes away). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Rincon de La Vieja National Park, get outside with Costa Rica Fantastic Adventures, take in the exciting artwork at Costa Rica Wild Art, and admire the sheer force of Llanos de Cortez Waterfall.
