Step into the Hotel Riu Guanacaste, on beautiful Mata Palo Beach!

There’s a gym, table tennis, volleyball, a tennis court, windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, kayaking and other water activities. If you like to Golf, the Four Seasons golf club boasts fantastic views over the ocean with a challenging course.

Guanacaste is less tropical, humid and lush than the rest of the country. Its dry grasslands and woods are sometimes reminiscent of landscapes from the African savannah. In the inland areas, you’ll see the natives, local cowboys riding on their horses as they lead their herds, which are authentic figures of the destination’s traditional culture. From the hotel, you can take day trips like a visit to Rincón de la Vieja nature park, the Safari Park or the capital of Guanacaste: Liberia.
