Costa Rica has some of the most diverse coastline and mountain areas in the entire world - you can be walking on a white sand beach and around the bluff will be a black sand beach full of hatching turtles. Thirty minutes away an active volcano bubbles away, and hot springs await next to azure rivers and stunning waterfalls. Pelicans soar over the waves, toucans chatter in the rainforests, sloths make their slow way from tree to tree, and howler monkeys delight with their extraordinary cries. It is truly a magical place.
If you really want to experience the freedom of the open road and the luxury to explore the diversity that Costa Rica has to offer, we recommend renting a car on your vacation. With the main highways as new and smooth as you would expect in North America or Europe, combined with today’s digital map technology, it couldn’t be easier to hop off your flight, jump in your rental car, and drive yourself to the white sand beaches of Guanacaste. Playa Flamingo is only 50 minutes away from the Liberia’s international airport or 3.5 hours from the San Jose international airport.
All you need is your driver’s license from your home country, your passport, and a valid credit card to hire a car. With so much to see and do a car gives you the freedom to explore hidden beaches, volcanoes, waterfalls, hot springs, coastal towns, and more.
If you aren’t up for driving there are many other options to get around. See below to find out more about our transportation options, from private shuttle services to group minivans and taxis, playaflamingo.com has you covered so you can see as much of this beautiful country as possible.
