Costa Rica’s original cross-roads, Liberia dates back to its founding by monks in 1769 as Ermita Guanacaste, at the intersection of roads connecting Nicoya, Bagaces, and Rivas (Nicaragua). Costa Rica’s second most populous city and home to the Daniel Oduber International Airport, the primary international portal to the sun and sand destinations of Guanacaste, Liberia, took its present name in 1851 to celebrate the collapse of the Central American Republic and its inclusion within the expanded boundaries of Costa Rica.
Check out the Liberia Civic Festival in late February and early March and the bacchanalian San Juan and Independence Festivals in June. The Sabaneros Museum features the region’s cowboy heritage, but a simple stroll around town itself is like a journey back into Guanacaste’s nineteenth century colonial frontier.
