Home of the Gold Coast Costa Rica

Long summer days and beautiful beaches best define what Guanacaste is all about. A province for exploration, Guanacaste draws visitors with its stunning shoreline, incredible bird watching, horseback riding, excellent surfing and snorkeling, and the exciting challenges of mountain lake windsurfing. With so much to do, it’s easy to understand why so many people come to visit this amazing province.

Forming the eastern border of Guanacaste is a chain of volcanoes that stretch out to join the Cordillera de Guanacaste and Cordillera de Tilaran mountain ranges. Offering some truly terrific hiking facilities, tourists can trek their way to the summit of a number of volcanoes, including Rincon de la Vieja Volcano area, to enjoy some really breathtaking views of the surrounding country-side. Lush, dense forests play host to a fabulous array of exotic plant and wildlife, and many rare and endangered animals such as jaguars and tapirs. From these mountains also flow various rivers that roll down to form an alluvial plain drained by the Rio Tempisque. This river, in turn, nurtures the farms and fields of the province before emptying into the Golfo de Nicoya.

Guanacaste home of the golden coast of Costa Rica

A region steep in culture, the name Guanacaste is derived from the word quahnacaztlan, which is a native word for the Guanacaste tree. This tree is the national tree of Costa Rica. One of the easiest ways to reach Guanacaste is to fly into the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia. This airport receives flights from all over the world especially the continental U.S. and is a major reason why tourism has boomed in this region. Most major points of interest with-in this region are accessible off the Pan-American Highway (Hwy. 1). Scenic in its own right, the Pan-American Highway moves northwest through Guanacaste and continues almost to the Nicaraguan border.

Marbella Town

Unique, friendly and authentic

Located on the Nicoya Peninsula in the province of Guanacaste, Marbella (“Beautiful Sea”) is one of the remaining jewels on the Pacific Coast. Unlike other, more well-known areas, Marbella has an exceptional feeling of tranquility attributable to its harmonious relationship with nature.

This area features pristine rivers, unspoiled mountains, breathtaking ocean views, and beautiful private beaches. Marbella is known for its consistently good surf breaks, attracting visitors from all around the world. The town is about a ninety-minute drive on well-maintained roads from Liberia International Airport. It is less than an hour’s drive from Tamarindo (North) and 40 minutes to Nosara (South), both of which are served by regional airports, making access to the town of Marbella very easy. The land and home values of both of these nearby towns have risen dramatically in recent years, positioning Marbella perfectly for growth and development.

Marbella is a unique and warm Costarican community

The town of Marbella has a population of approximately 600 and the people are known to be exceptionally friendly. The local economy is supported largely by fishing and agriculture-related activities. Jeff and Ian have worked diligently to shelter Marbella from the excessive development that occurred in northern Guanacaste over the past decade, by purchasing the majority of the developable land and putting a master plan in place that will preserve the environment. Largely due to those efforts, Marbella to-day represents an unspoiled, ideal location to create a thoughtful and sustainable project like Costa Dorada
