Postcards from Guanacaste: The province’s beautiful beaches

October 23, 2019

If you love the ocean, Guanacaste’s beaches are hard to beat.

There’s Tamarindo, the tourist town popular with beginner surfers, and Playa Avellanas for gnarlier waves. There’s the expansive Playa Conchal — with seashells instead of sand — and tranquil Playa Penca.

Some of our staff recently enjoyed a beach weekend in Guanacaste. Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the trip:
