"Discover this paradisiacal place with our guide "

South Carribean


Guanacaste Conservation Area (ACG), is located northwest of Costa Rica, in the province of Guanacaste. It consists of National Parks: Santa Rosa, Guanacaste and Rincón de la Vieja; besides the Horizontes Forestry Station and Bahía Junquillal Wildlife Refuge.


In the ACG we integrate a continuous block of marine and coastal ecosystems, tropical dry forest, tropical rainforest and tropical cloud forest, where it is estimated that there are approximately 235,000 species (65% of the estimated species in Costa Rica) and 2.6 % of global biodiversity.


History and nature are intertwined in Santa Rosa, considered as a World Heritage. The scene of the historic Battle of March 20, 1856, this National Park is the only Protected Wilderness Area that has a historical museum within its territory. On this site, the only patch of tropical dry forest in Mesoamerica is preserved. In addition, the area is fully connected to humid, cloud and rain forests, which makes it possible to have an important biological richness.


You can visit from a dry forest to a cloud one in the midst of a volcanic environment on a short journey into Rincón de la Vieja National Park. Emanations of boiling mud, boiling water and steam that resonate in the air. You can witness all this volcanic activity and also can visit a dry forest, one wet, one humid and one cloud in just two hours.

The perfect base from which to discover first hand those amazing places is Liberia. With our specialized guide, you have the opportunity to explore exclusive wildlife areas by horseback, secluded beaches, natural waters snorkelling, and world-class and beginner surf spots.

If you want to see the REAL Costa Rica, this is it! I've been traveling there for several years visiting many hotels, tour guides, etc. Eladio is the most authentic experience by far.

Mitchell Tucker

Our family has vacationed with Eladio twice in the past 2 years. We had so much fun the first time, that we just had to go back. We've traveled all over Costa Rica and our time with Eladio was so fantastic and personalized. Eladio does a great job with logistics for large groups or small families.
