Nicoya, a city on the Nicoya Peninsula of the Guanacaste province, Costa Rica, is one of the country's most important tourist zones; it serves as a transport hub to Guanacaste's beaches and national parks. Relax by the water at San Juanillo Beach and Playa Avellana. Step off the beaten path and head to Nosara Refuge for Wildlife and Jungle Butterfly Farm. Get out of town with these interesting Nicoya side-trips: Playa Conchal (in Playa Conchal), Costa Rica Sailing Center (in Playa Potrero) and Pura Aventura (in El Guapote). Spend the 5th (Mon) exploring nature at Barra Honda National Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at The Ara Project, stroll through Puerto Carrillo, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and head outdoors with Los Piratas de Flamingo.
