Nicoya ©
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 Playa Conchal and Nosara Beach (Playa Guiones). You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Playa Avellana. Change things up with these side-trips from Nicoya: Hacienda El Roble & Adventure Center (in Santa Cruz), Pura Aventura (in El Guapote) and Rojas Bros Boruca Indigenous Art & Gallery (in Playas del Coco). Saddle up on the 15th (Wed) and explore with a tour on horseback. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at El Viejo Wetlands, kick back and relax at Playa Manzanillo, and shop like a local with MAEL's ABSTRACT ART GALLERY.
