You can be at many of Costa Rica’s most visited destinations within a 1 hour drive in virtually any direction. Like the international airport in Liberia, Tamarind, the most popular beach town in Costa Rica, the amazing surfing beaches of Nosara and Carillo, and rain forest and adventure seeking activities of all kinds.

Known for its cultural heritage and many historical traditions, Santa Cruz host many annual celebrations and fiestas like the Fiesta de Semana Santa (Easter) and the traditional bullfights as well as many others. Unlike bullfights you may have seen, here, the bulls are treated with respect and dignity and never killed as, in Costa Rica, is it never ok to deliberately injure or kill a bull in a bullfight. Or any animal anywhere for that matter.
