Liberia is Guanacaste’s largest city and capital, but stills retain a charming small-town vibe. Your afternoon shopping tour begins with pickup at your Guanacaste- area hotel and a lovely drive to Liberia in an air-conditioned vehicle. Admire one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful stretches of countryside as you pass scenic farmlands and small villages.
Follow your local guide on an insider’s tour of Liberia’s charming colonial streets, and see the whitewashed adobe homes that inspired the nickname ‘the White City.’ Admire the colonial architecture that surrounds the Central Plaza, including the Hermita de la Agonia church, and learn about the city’s culture while exploring both the historic and modern parts of the capital.
Peruse gift shops around the city to find locally made souvenirs and specialty products like Costa Rica’s renowned coffee. For more shopping, visit a favorite local shop in the town of Guardia on the return drive. Here you can find unique handcrafted items including ceramics, carvings of tropical hardwood, and household goods made from natural materials.
When your 4-hour tour concludes back in Guanacaste, you’re sure to have fantastic new mementos of your Costa Rican vacation!
