Despite being one of the largest city centers in Costa Rica, Liberia is not overly large as a town. It still has all of the major amenities that you will need during your stay here and Liberia hostels are close to the supermarkets, bus stations, and cash machines. While the overall vibe here is pretty relaxed and there generally aren't many people found wandering around the streets, you will find that Liberia has a good network of public transport to get to other regions of Costa Rica and is surrounded by beautiful national park areas that you can explore. Ask at your hostel in Liberia and they should be able to give you information on the national parks in the area and getting to and from them. There is a tourist information office, but it is quite small and difficult to find.

Of the national parks within the area, the closest and easiest to get to is the Rincon de la Viejo National Park, which contains a lot of diverse natural features such as hot springs and bubbling mud pools to explore, a volcano, and some magnificent waterfalls for swimming. The biodiversity is huge and you will find much to do here.

You can also opt for day trips to the beach to Playa del Coco or any of the other beaches along the Papagayo Peninsula. You can either take public transport to these places or catch a shuttle (some Liberia hostels offer these services).
