Puntarenas is emerging as a destination for international tourists seeking a visit to an authentic Costa Rican community with amenities for a relaxed, private vacation along with easy access to many of Costa Rica’s hottest destinations. Puntarenas, situated on a sand peninsula in the Gulf of Nicoya, is bordered on the south by a two-kilometer shoreline with breathtaking views of the Nicoya Peninsula, and on the north by environmentally significant mangroves.
The beachfront boulevard “Paseo de los Turistas” is a popular spot for leisurely strolls or more vigorous runs, as well as frequent festivals and community events. During the “dry season,” there are weekly outdoor concerts and dances at the “point” of Puntarenas, next to the iconic Lighthouse. Puntarenas is ideally situated for excursions to the islands of the Gulf of Nicoya and other Costa Rican destinations. The city is 90 minutes from San Jose International Airport and approximately 2.5 hours from Liberia International Airport. Formerly the primary commercial port of Costa Rica, Puntarenas now welcomes over 100 cruise ships per year carrying tourists from around the globe. In the heart of the city of Puntarenas, a number of historically and culturally significant sites are accessible to tourists.
