The Santa Rosa National Park is the sight of Costa Rica’s most important monument, the Hacienda Santa Rosa.

Today, La Casona is a museum dedicated to the memory of this battle. This tour will allow you to stop by and explore this historical sight.

Following the hike, the tour will make its way to the city of Liberia. Here, you can walk around the city center and enjoy glimpses of what was once called the “White City.” Liberia enjoyed this title because of its white adobe houses, white dirt roads, and locals who were known for wearing white to counteract the effects of the region’s extreme heat. While in Liberia, you’ll enjoy a tour of historic places and have the opportunity to buy souvenirs.

About Santa Rosa National Park

Jutting westward into the Pacific, Santa Rosa National Park (Parque Nacional Santa Rosa) engulfs much of the Santa Elena Peninsula located in northwestern Guanacaste. Founded in 1971, Santa Rosa was the first park established in all of Costa Rica. An abundance of flora and fauna reside in the park's immense forests that give way to virgin white-sand beaches. Santa Rosa is uniquely orientated to campers, offering a number of campgrounds for visitors who wish to spend the night.
