Wide stretches of golden solitary beaches, wildlife reserves jostling with exotic nature, a dry consistent climate, great surfing spots, and an ultra-easy-going atmosphere are the collective traits for Costa Rica's northern Pacific coastline.
The Guanacaste coast, for all the reasons above is nicknamed the 'Gold Coast', stretches all the way from the Nicaragua border south, eventually becoming the Nicoya Peninsula with the vibrant and principal coastal town of Tamarindo more or less dividing the two. The dry, steady warm weather of the Guanacaste attracts visitors along with its white-sand beaches, the wildlife of the nearby Rincón de la Vieja national park, the trendy Conchal beach, and the idyllic seclusion of Playa Portrero.
All year round: the hot, dry climate of these areas means there is little rain from November to April and temperatures are pretty consistentThe southern Nicoya region however experiences more rainfall as per its transitional position from dry to tropical
