Since we are only a 1.5 hour drive on all paved roads from the major capital city of Guanacaste Province of which we are a part, the fast growing major city is easier to get to than to the busy city of San Jose which is a longer drive. Most of the same businesses and medical facilities in San Jose have sub-offices here for the growing beach dwellers. It is also 90 minutes from the Liberia International Airport so easy for travelers to come and go.
