Holidays in Papagayo

Papagayo beckons! We're here to help you get as much as you possibly can out of your trip to the North Pacific Coast region.

Holidays in Papagayo

There isn't any shortage of things to do 15 miles away in Potrero. Fantastic sights like Flamingo Beach and Conchal Beach are just the start.

Put aside a few hours for enjoying the sound of the swell and hunting for shells at Blanca Beach or Callejones Beach.

Fill your lungs with fresh air and admire the natural surrounds of Reserva Santa Elena. It lies 30 miles away from Papagayo. You can also enjoy more peace and quiet at Llanos de Cortés, 30 miles away.

Take a trip back in time as you wander around the Beach Chocolate Factory. This historical site has plenty of stories to tell.

If you have a little spare time on your hands, see what you can discover at Marina Papagayo.

After more things to see and do? Head to Playa Hermosa, 5 miles south of Papagayo, for the Papagayo Golf and Country Club and Rocio's Kitchen. Alternatively, Comunidad is 8 miles to the southeast, and it's here you'll find the Hidden Garden Art Gallery and Hermosa Bay Beach.

Liberia, 14 miles to the east, is a great little excursion You can use it as a base when stopping by La Agonía, Iglesia Inmaculada Concepción de María and the Museo de Guanacaste. If you need more persuading, other nearby sights include Parque Nacional Rincón de la Vieja and the Africa Mía.

There is no better way to get to know a destination than to literally take a bite out of it! You're invited to discover the culture, history and personality of North Pacific Coast by indulging in some of its most fabulous food and drink.

Want some insight into the local fare? We recommend you get a taste for pork and chicken, two essential ingredients which go into many of the dishes here.

While you're in Papagayo, dine like a local. That means ordering a plate of casado or arroz con pollo (rice and chicken), two of the area's signature dishes.

If you're in it for dessert, you won't be disappointed. Try tres leches (custard flan), a delicious treat that's guaranteed to satisfy your sugar cravings.

To beer or not to beer? Of course, the answer is always beer. When you're in this part of the world, Bavaria is the one you need.

Ron Centenario is the spirit of choice for many North Pacific Coast locals. Ask your barkeeper for a shot and get the party started!

Ask any experienced traveller and they'll tell you that the best way to get more from your time away is to learn a few of the local words and phrases. "¡Perdón!" may be very handy. It's how you say "excuse me". Maybe you'll find "Buenas noches" easier to get your head around? It means "good evening".

You're bound to sense excitement in the air leading up to the 15th of September. The locals will be preparing for Independence Day, a day of nation-wide celebrations.

Before you say your final "Adiós" to Papagayo, check your pockets for any spare change that you can spend on last-minute souvenirs.

Like to know where the nearest airport is? Well, it's Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR) and it's 8 miles to the east.
