Hotel La Plazuela is a rustic family hotel located 10-15 minutes from the Liberia International Airport in Guanacaste, Costa Rica’s northwestern province. The hot and arid region of Guanacaste presents an abundance of popular beach destinations, as well as beautiful natural settings amid its mountains and national parks.
The town of Liberia is centrally located along the Interamericana Highway approximately an hour away from the coastline and many of the region’s beach destinations, including Playas Tamarindo and Conchal. In addition to these beaches, Liberia is a short distance from a number of protected wildlife regions. Day trips can be made to Costa Rica’s largest wetland sanctuary, Palo Verde National Park, where there are excellent birding opportunities. Rincon de la Vieja is a mountainous and active geothermal region, located 30 km from Liberia, where visitors can enjoy mud baths and a dip in scenic waterfalls.
Between Guanacaste’s beaches and the shrouded mountains, an open stretch of big-sky country is home to Costa Rican “Sabanero” (cowboy) culture. In this open stretch, farms and ranches line the Interamericana, and Hotel La Plazuela can be found on Hacienda Rancho Gesling, a large cattle and sugar cane farm.
At Hotel La Plazuela, guests are invited to experience both the region’s natural attractions and its cultural traditions. Guests can take a peaceful boat ride down the Tempisque River or ride on horseback through the surrounding mountains, forests, and valleys. Both tours offer great opportunities to spot wildlife- including deer, howler monkeys, iguanas, and many types of birds. The hotel also offers a small canopy tour with five cables for a total of 1000 meters. When it comes to fun and entertainment, however, its best to catch Hotel La Plazuela during one of its bullfighting shows, which take place in a small fenced in ring on the hotel property. Guests can safely watch this exciting entertainment from leveled steps, thus sharing in an authentic Guancaste experience.
The rustic design of Hotel La Plazuela reflects traditional construction styles of the region. The hotel has 16 comfortable rooms in a standard double or deluxe double. The outside courtyard features a large and refreshing swimming pool, while the hotel restaurant serves typical Costa Rican dishes.
