Guanacaste is one of the most visited provinces in Costa Rica, and it’s no surprise: this area has plenty that makes it one of the world’s most fantastic tourist destinations. Guanacaste has so many things to do, it’s almost hard to list them all. There are vast national parks to experience and explore, lush rainforests that will awe you with their density, stunning beaches that offer awesome surf breaks; all this and as a bonus the climate of the region perfect for most of the year.
A Great Option
If you’re looking to extend your time having fun in the sun in Costa Rica, Guanacaste
is a great option for a long-term vacation stay. Whether you are traveling with your partner, your family or with friends, you can find a vacation rental unit that will suit your needs. For long term stays, it makes more sense for your budget to get a vacation rental instead of a hotel room. A vacation rental will give you as much space as you need, and it will immerse you into the real side of Costa Rica culture
, instead of expose you mostly to the tourist side of the culture. If you’re hoping to stay near the beach, and think that a hotel is your only option, that is not true. There is a lot of real estate that is available for vacation leasing along the beach.
If your trip is longer, like weeks or months, or shorter for a group, a vacation rental is a great alternative to a hotel. Instead of having to choose between cramming into a crowded room or spending a lot of your budget on separate rooms, you can just rent an affordable property that will fit everyone.
Your Guanacaste vacation rental won’t be short on amenities either. Though a hotel can definitely offer you the most services, a vacation rental will come fully equipped with all the necessities that you’ll need for a relaxed and hassle free trip. Chances are you’ll be outside most of the time anyway.
Types of Rentals
The available rentals for a Guanacaste vacation stay can be found all up and down the coast, and they range from modest to luxurious. If you just need a place to rest your head and store your belongings, you’ll be able to find that easily. If you would like to have more help with your stay, you can also find vacation rentals that include property staff. The rental units available might be a house, a cottage, a condo, a cabin, or a bed and breakfast. There is truly a Guanacaste vacation rental for every type of traveler. No matter your budget, you are likely to find a short or long term home that will offer you a breathtaking view of the Guanacaste sunsets.
