Palo Verde National Park

The Palo Verde National Park is located 45 km (28 miles) south of Liberia. Over 300 species of birds, including Costa Rica’s largest population of waterbirds call this park their home. Mischievous monkeys, cute coatis and toothy crocodiles are here as well. Take a boat tour of the Tempisque river to appreciate the unique ecosystem in this part of Guanacaste.

Do & See

With its historic buildings and a growing cultural scene, Liberia boasts a lot of opportunities to learn about its rich history and culture — start your stroll at Calle Real, Liberia's oldest street, to see where it all began, and where renovation and expansion are already planned ahead. The town makes an excellent launch pad for exploring the nature and beaches nearby (and farther afield), as well as getting around the impressive province of Guanacaste for a deep dive into the diversity of Costa Rica and its unfathomably beautiful nature.
